Gordon Boyd

He had a lovely deep voice. He hosted the talent program Showcase from 1965-1969. The musical director was the famous Hector Crawford. For Showcase, they travelled around the country, looking for the best acts. It was vastly different to the approach and attitude of Australian Idol! Showcase also ran again in 1974.

(I sound like I should be in the Masters Games, which are on in Sydney now.  It looks like they’re all having fun. Prince Frederick got dumped in the Harbour during the yacht race. A competitor has died —  in his late 40s. )
