Reg  Lindsay  -  many artists got their start on the Reg Lindsay show - and  he helped others  further their careers, on stage shows, radio and TV.    With artists such as these on this bill - the show is bound to be a  great success  -  with the likes of Chad, George Payne, Judy Stone, Nev  Nicholls, Athol McCoy and so on.  . . . ,  
Not sure who:- Trevor  Green, Charles Marrow, Noel Judd, Neil Williams, and Ted McDonald  were   -  they also appeared on this particular program in 1956.

Reg Lindsay.  
(Remembering Reg on the anniversary of his birth)
He was born Reginald John Lindsay on July 7th 1929 Sydney.  
His first appearance in music began in 1948 on Dick Fair’s Amateur Hour and again in 1949 – however it wasn’t until a motorbike trip from Adelaide to Sydney in late 1950, he took out first place. It was the Tim McNamara’s Talent Quest.  This win lead to a recording contract with Rodeo Records with his first single released in 1951 - Blue Velvet Band’ back with ‘Streamline Yodel’
Ever since riding into Sydney and appearing on the talent quest – he became quite well known. In 1952 Reg had his first radio station on 2CH he shortly crossed over to 2SM where he stayed for ten years.  In 1955, Reg was invited to tour with Canadian singer Wilf Carter – Wilf fell ill on the second show and couldn’t continue with his tour of Australia, so Reg made it his own show and it was a huge success.
He ran his own TV show ‘Country Hour’ and later ‘Country Homestead’.  In 1968, he made his first trip to the US.   One of his biggest hits was ‘Armstrong’ – and this month (July 2019) celebrates the 50th Anniversary of man landing on the moon.
Reg did just about everything in the entertainment industry from his own recording to media ambassador of Country Music. Opened the door to the US market so that young Australian country singers could have a chance at the big apple.
Reg died on August 5th 2008.
