Star Walk

Pioneer, Music

Singer Pat Walker made her debut on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver’s very first Variety television series “Parade” in 1954-55 produced by Daryl Duke which also introduced performers who were later to become regulars on CBC shows - Ernie Prentice, Betty Phillips and Chris Gage. Pat was a guest on the series “The Rhythm Pals” before becoming a regular in the cast of CBC TV’s “Some of Those Days” from 1961-64 along with Barney Potts, Thora Anders, Pat Morgan, Lorraine McAllister, Roma Hearn and Lance Harrison. The nostalgia black & white half hour series combined song, music and archival photographs and newsreel footage to evoke the periods from the end of World War I in 1918 through the years of the Depression to the end of World War II in 1945.
