Bob McLean Show, The (Series) (1975-1981)

Aka: The Best of Bob McLean; McLean At Large

Bob McLean Show, The
The Bob McLean Show succeeded Luncheon Date as CBC's lunchtime talk show broadcast. McLean continued the easygoing format that Elwood Glover had established in this program of music, interviews and features.

In the summers of 1976 and 1977, material from the show was used for a Saturday evening series called The Best of Bob McLean. The 1976-1977 season included a weekly segment from a Broadway, West End or Canadian musical comedy. For the 1979 season, the producers took the show outside Toronto and originated in different cities, including Ottawa, Halifax, and Vancouver. The program was retitled McLean at Large in mid-1981.
