Ralph Jackson is a very special man, and I totally enjoyed interviewing him. In this podcast you will hear him talk about growing up in Scotland, and then joining the army, where he served as an instructor in the use of special weapons and self-defence. He was, and still is popular at the age of 89, as an entertainer, where he sang with some of the biggest bands of his era, and he told me some interesting stories about this aspect of his life.

Its a long interview - just a little more than 30 minutes - but well worth listening to. So scroll down a little to the audio player, and ENJOY.

SHOWTIME - An interview with this fun group's founder and director Beryl Israel - August 31, 2016

SHOWTIME was the inspiration of Beryl Israel, born in in Zimbabwe, who started her musical career in South Africa. She started many entertainment groups, comprising singers and dancers, and brought her talents with her to Vancouver, where she started Showtime - a group of enthusiastic seniors, who entertain, mainly, Seniors, with their skills and talents. They are all amateurs, but amateurs of a high caliber, and they bring joy to seniors all over Vancouver. They fill a necessary gap in the entertainment industry, as skilled amateurs who share their talents just for the fun of it - and the results prove this. Join us in this interesting interview with Beryl, where she discusses her career and how she founded Showtime
