Ruzicka (Series) (1977)

Bob Ruzicka was the host and star of CBC-TV's half-hour variety series titled Ruzicka. Many of his compositions were featured on this 13-week series. His guest singers were personal friends including Valdy, Sylvia Tyson, Dan Hill, John Allan Cameron, Ann Mortifee, the Good Brothers, Len Udow, Leon Bibb, and other fellow performers at folk festivals across the country.

Ruzicka, the program, featured "love songs and story songs," as the singer called them. His songs also revealed he had seen the dark side of the moon — injustice among native peoples in places such as Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk in the north, and the materialistic rat race of the south.
