All Around the Circle (Series) (1964-1975)

All Around the Circle
All Around The Circle was a weekly half-hour program of good music, song, variety and travel from St. John's, Newfoundland. It originally aired only locally but made its debut on the CBC-TV network in the summer of 1969. Regulars appearing in the first nationally televised summer series included singers John White and Carol Brothers, musician Ray Walsh and Don Randell and The Band. Each program featured a special guest or guests and on numerous occasions there were film visits to places of interest. All Around The Circle was a show aimed primarily at plain folks of all cultures, people who enjoyed real folk music sung with enthusiasm and authenticity. Because it was from Newfoundland, the program reflected the Island's unique lifestyle and drew upon a heritage of folk art which went back nearly five hundred years.
