I’m still missing a little information about this show, which aired on 6 October 1973.
It aired at 5:20pm on a Saturday evening in all ITV regions with the exception of Anglia TV (5:50pm) and UTV (5:45pm).
One of the three panellists on show two was British talent manager, Evie Taylor. Evie managed a number singers including Adam Faith, Sandie Shaw and Val Doonican. She is credited as being the source of the Larry Grayson catchphrase, ‘Shut that door’, a phrase she used to utter when discussing financial or personal issues with her clients.
Evie was joined by John Smith from the Bailey’s Organisation and London impresario Dickie Hurran, who was back for his second show having judged the first show of the new series the previous week.
The names of the six acts I know appeared on the show are;
- John D. Bryant (guitar / vocalist)
- Kenny Robson (ukulele player & tap dancer) from Essex
- Danny O’Hara (comedian) from Ireland
The other four, unknown acts included;
- a four-piece group – possibly Barley
- a quick draw caricature cartoonist
- a male musical / vocal duo
Irish comedian Danny O’Hara had previously appeared on the show The Comedians.
This show is probably the one where most the details are missing.
I am missing the names of the other three acts that appeared on this programme alongside winner John D. Bryant and young dancer, musician Kenny Robson and comedian Danny O’Hara.
One of the missing acts is this quick draw cartoonist.
