Raes, The (Series) (1978-1980)

Raes, The
The talented husband and wife disco-singing duo of Cherrill and Robbie Rae were signed by CBC-TV to star in their own summer variety series during July and August, 1978. The seven one-hour programs were produced in the CBC-TV studios in Vancouver by Ken Gibson. Cherrill and Robbie Rae were known through their concert and cabaret work across the country, and a recent JUNO nomination. The series was built around the versatile talents of the young husband and wife team.

The series proved popular enough that a second series of half-hour shows was produced and aired in the 1979-1980 season.
