Journey Into Melody (Series) (1958)

Journey Into Melody, a Sunday evening half-hour of music, was the first series broadcast live over the network from the CBC Halifax studios. It ran for five weeks in June 1958, and featured Bernard Johnson as a travel agent who dreamed of exotic places in the world that he would like to go. The locations and times that he imagined--such as a Cape Breton village a hundred years ago, or Vienna at the turn of the century--motivated the show's selection of songs. The principal performers were the Armdale Chorus, already well known to Canadians for their ten years of radio broadcasts on the CBC's Trans-Canada network and on the International Service. The music was supported by the Gordon MacPherson Orchestra and dance numbers choreographed by Gunter Budita.
