Oh boy, another blast from the past. I remember it well for Billy Van's regular appearance at night clubs like the Penny Farthing in Yorkville leaving his big old Austin British taxi parked out front on the street. He was a very approachable guy who invariably made anywhere he showed up go crazy with laughter.

You should also be interested in Julius Sumner Miller who was the real deal as regards science and was tasked with providing a short physics lesson for each episode of the show. He was a very famous guy in his own right.

Billy Van also formed part of the cast of the Party Game hosted by Bill Walker with the very pretty Dinah Christie and Jack Duffy which required all to perform a lot of ad-libbed comedy while trying to solve a riddle using charades.

These programs were shown on the CHCH TV channel from Hamilton.

As an aside Billy Van has now been given a museum of his body of work in the CBC studios.
