This might have been ITV's first Saturday morning hit. A curious show from our point of view nowadays as presenter Joan Edwards does the housework to the tunes of the day as requested by viewers. "A lively miscellany from salads to sambas and foxtrots to fishing" as TV Times put it, also "Joan Edwards enlivens her Saturday morning chores by playing the records chosen by viewers".


It ran from 9.00 until 10.00 am before the closedown and appeared to be networked across ITV.
