Marc was probably approached about hosting his own show when he appeared on Granada's
Arrows' and Get It Together in April 1977. Both were produced by Muriel Young, who

The dance troupe were Heart Throb, choreographed by Teri Scoble as were many of the Granada shows of the time.
By mid 1977 punk was slowly encroaching into tea-
A second series of thirteen shows was discussed with Marc, but his sudden death on the 16th of September, two days after wrapping up the recording of the final show put an end to that. The final two shows were broadcast as intended.
Many shows began with Sing Me A Song and before he signed off he suggested we all "Keep a little Marc in your heart and we'll be back at the same Marc time, the same Marc channel." Consider it done.
