It has been a busy few weeks. First up, Judy Collins who was in town to perform at the Chan Centre at UBC. We had a wonderful conversation in front of the Global TV cameras. Her sister Holly lives here, so she had a great visit and an outstanding show.
Next up, a full house at the Red Robinson Show Theatre with Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers fame. Gerry and his wife are a delightful couple. He reprised all his hits including Ferry Cross the Mersey, Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying and the adopted Liverpool football song You’ll Never Walk Alone, which had the whole theatre singing along. A very engaging and happy personality.
The following night Jay Leno performed two stand-up comedy shows at the “Red”. You are probably aware Jay will conclude his long lasting job as host of NBC‘s Tonight Show at the end of the year. We talked backstage about all that and so much more. Jay is a truly delightful man and he takes time to talk to everyone. An era is ending with his departure from late night TV.
On another note: I received an invitation from British commercial network ITV to appear in a documentary on Michael Bublé with the theme “a day in the life of Michael Bublé”. When I say “appear”, I should mention that I will be heard on the car radio as he is driving. Another great honour.
