BBC
3rd January 1959 - 28th March 1959

Launched as a replacement for The Six-Five Special on Saturdays from 6:05 to 6:30 pm. The resident group were Bob Miller & The Millermen, while the host was ex-serviceman and Sandhurst Graduate Gary Marshall. It tried to copy Oh Boy! in terms of pace, but failed. One month after it started cast changes were made, but was dropped altogether the following month.
