Countrytime (Series) (1970-1974)

Aka: Country Time

Countrytime
In the early 1970s, the CBC followed the Saturday night hockey broadcasts with this country music concert series, taped in the auditorium of Dartmouth High School in Nova Scotia, and starting 1972 in the larger auditorium of the Prince Arthur High School, also in Dartmouth. Myrna Lorrie had been a star of country music in Canada since she was a child, and Countrytime was principally her show.
