Denny Vaughan Show, The (Series) (1954-1957)

Aka: On Stage with Denny Vaughan

Pianist and arranger Denny Vaughan and singer Joan Fairfax appeared in this popular summer series in 1954. When it attracted Lever Brothers as a commercial sponsor, starting in the 1955 season, it had changed format. Where the summer show had been a relaxed and unassuming musical program, the regular season broadcasts had more glitz. With its major production numbers and comics imported from the USA, it had become a variety show. By the 1956 season, the producer retreated back into a more strictly musical format and adopted a more consciously Canadian talent policy. Two groups, the Diamonds and the Add-Fours, took turns as the featured vocal quartet. The show also featured an act from French Canada every week.
