Gerry Kelly welcomes guests and live audience to another evening of music and conversations in Northern Ireland’s popular chat show.

The first guests to join Kelly in the studio are the stars of Blue Peter, Caron Keating and Valerie Singleton who share memories and highlights of their work on the programme. The next guest is a well know Irish show band performer Dickie Rock. Dickie is joined by Gerry Anderson and Sammy Smith and together they reminisce about the show band days of glory, the swinging sixties.

Other guests of the night include a collector of showband memorabilia Bobby Hanvey, a TV presenter best known for Mr & Mrs gameshow Derek Batey and finally Sylvia Roddell, Carol Whitten and Glen Pool. The two women from Portadown set up the Improbable Possible organisation to fulfil dreams for children with serious conditions. Carol and Sylvia tell a bit more about their work and Glen describes his dream-come-true meeting with Bon Jovi. Musical guests performing in this programme are Dickie Rock, Seven and the resident duo Bacaan.


The programme also includes a short excerpt from BBC’s Blue Peter featuring elephant in the studio 00:11:13 – 00:12:12 (Courtesy of BBC Television).
