Lang, Paul Anka, Bryan Adams, and more, culled from past CBC shows including Adrienne Clarkson Presents, Let’s Go, Nightcap, Parade, Pilot One, Take 30, Talent Caravan, The Tommy Hunter Show and The Wayne & Shuster Hour.

It is produced by Toronto’s music-focused prodco Banger Films for CBC, with executive producers Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen, and creative producer Ralph Chapman.
