In Person (Series) (1966-1968)

In Person
In Person filled the Saturday night slot between the end of the hockey game and the start of the national news. A musical variety show, its regulars were a big band led by Jimmy Dale, a vocal group called the In Singers, writer Allen Blye, and choreographer Andy Body. Each week, a different host introduced guest entertainers from Canada and elsewhere.

The 1967 fall season opened up the show's concept with more one-person performances, book and music shows, and by getting out of the studio more often. He also hired Al Hamel as the show's regular host, and signed a range of topline Canadian guests.
