she had an apartment upstairs in Lloyd Maclnnes's house. And Lloyd--him and I ex? changed a couple of stories. I'd be going up to her apartment, and he was on the second floor, where he and his wife lived. And I'd say, "I heard a story today"--and this, you know, got on. Finally, it was, "Allan, how about coming on television some night?" Hughie MacKenzie and I started the Hughie and Allan deal. We _were in the same outfit in the ar? my and we just started firing stories back and forth. And the boys that were with us seemed to get a kick out of them. And then after awhile we were asked to stand up at con? certs and things they'd have in the army head? quarters.

And then we started telling stories, and we came out of the army and--I was telling this to Lloyd Maclnnes one night. Lloyd was an old radio and televi? sion fellow here in Sydney. He wasn't old, he was at it a long time. And he said, "Come on up on television some night." This was the year after the television station opened here. CJCB station up the hill. And I went down to see Hughie and told him about it and he said, "Now, you just take an aspi? rin and go home and lie down. You'll be all right for awhile." I said, "No, he means it. He wants us to go up." So Lloyd kept persisting and Hughie finally gave in and he says, "Okay, what the hell," he said. "We'll go up and see." So that's where the overalls and old hats came in. We just figured that's what the old characters that we're gonna try to portray--we used to see them come to town with a horse and wag? on, and they all had overalls on to keep the suit clean. 'Cause they had to hitch the horse and all that sort of thing, and be around the wagon. The Heart of Your Visit: ymatrix' ESSENTIALS PERM FOR A CHANGE Bored with your hair style? Want a change?
