Glen Reid TV: Makem/Ryan's Fancy CBC Shows (9) RE: TV: Makem/Ryan's Fancy CBC Shows 21 Nov 02


The Makem/Ryan's Fancy show was a syndicated effort recorded out of the facilities of CHCH Hamilton, Ontario in the early seventies.
The video was shot live from a local Irish/Canadian club.
The producer of the show was Manny Pittson of the, Don Messer and Singalong Jubilee fame.
The musical director and offstage bassist was Blind Freddy McKenna The reason I know this, is because I was his, sometimes assistant director and copyist(music charts).

The Irish Rover's show was CBC out of Vancouver and All Around the Circle, was done in St. John's NFLD, also CBC.

Great shows every one of them.
Recently Manny Pittson and I tried to float the idea of doing another show of this style, but to no avail.
Its seems that in the 500 plus channel world we live in, theres no market for the little folk variety music shows, such as these.

I would just bet theres a few Mudcatters who would think differently.
Cheers, Glen
