    I used to have an AGM at a British themed Pub who looked exactly like this guy. He was the best.

    Thanks for being so friendly, Jared ✌️

    The show **wasn’t** from 1970, so the date’s wrong. It started in 1958 and ran for almost 3,000 episodes until 1982 on CBC in Canada.

    The intro was a recorder version of Greensleaves. It was very popular in Northern NY.

    Does this guy look like Alex Liefson from Rush?
