Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 2 Andy Williams plans a new program "NEW YORK (AP) Andy Williams has this weird idea. He'd like to return to the grind of a weekly variety show on TV, probably do it in New York, do it live and not sing as much as he did during his old scries on NBC. The singer, lean and tanned at 43, discussed all this heresy while in town to do an NBC special which the network said was a pilot for a possible mid- season series. Williams, who got into the singing business at an early age with brothers Bob, Dick and Don, had his 'Own weekly music show on NBC from 1962 to 1967, but since then has stuck to specials.

I don't think it'd be as hard as doing the old series where I had to rehearse all week." Williams said the series he has in mind wouldn't re- semble his old show. For one thing, it wouldn't have a staff of singers and "we'd hire 'em as we need 'em." It should be as up-to-the minute as is why he said he'd rather do it live instead of taping it several weeks in ad- both song material, guest artists and comedy. "I'd like to have the No. 1 recording act of the week on and the comedy should about what's happening in the newspapers- that MIDNIGHT MOVIES THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24 12 MIDNIGHT CHANNEL 10 MMttMiiAHMHAMiiiMflMiiiii 324 13th Street N.

"I think that if it works out the way I'd like it to, and if we had the money to do it, I'd like to cut away during the show to different places. "If, say, the Rolling, Stones were on tour in Cleveland and if .we got persmission to shoot a lit- tle of their concert, I'd like to get the NBC affiliate in there with a hand-held camera for the show. "The whole idea of it is to catch the things people .are talking about, and all of it should be new." Do'ing the show live, would be more of a hassle, he conceded, "but the? im- mediacy of the thing would be more important than the fact it might not be as slick or sniooth as it would be on tape." Williams said the new show "would be a combina- tion of shows. "It should have the quali- ty of That Was the Week That Was, talking about things that are in the news, The Rug Drapery Shoppe what's happening today, and maybe a little .bit like the old Jackie Gleason show, in that you do it in a big theatre with a live audience." Williams lives in Beverly Hills, Calif., but said he'd probably do the show here even though he used to think, "Why come to New York when you can do it in Los ''But since I've been here, I've found there's an aliveness to New theatres, the music tours that start here. I'd rather be back in LA .because my kids and Claudine (his wife) are there, but I think LA's a bit too laid back." The singer said he didn't know when or if he'd get word from NBC to crank up a mid-season series. The network has no music-variety show in its current lineup, although NBC 'officials say, they'd like one Williams said whether he commences the series partly depends on whether Up Canada satire returns Up Canada makes its se- cond season debut on CBC- TV Tuesday, with the same assignment- to dig into' events of the day and make it all fun to watch. show will again have its serious and satirical says executive producer George Robertson.

"And then you have to decide whether you want to go in that trouble he said "If it's up against All the Family. His words trailed off and he laughed, "When I was just starting out, I was'offered 4 couple of shows. The first show I was offered was against Gunsmoke. I just said, 'I have a destruction complex to a degree, but I don't want to just go in and get wiped out.' "Same thing now. I think this show would be much better on a weekend, and if they gave me, like, a Mon- day night spot, I don't know whether I'd want to do it. And I don't care either. "I don't have to have this show, buHt'd be fun." staff, it's a fun show to do, and I think our viewers will be similarly entertained as well as being better in-' 'formed about the pas't week's news events." Robertson has retained people who have proved that they can turn this trick on-camera people like Rex Murphy and Patrick -MacFadden, plus Larry Zolf, sworn foe of the pom-" pous and high-minded, who's one of the series' producer contributors. Original investigative reporting is still very much part of Up Canada's weekly half-hour mandate and, along with Zolf, this season the series' learn of TV journalists includes John Zantsky in Ottawa, Doug Collins in Vancouver, and Toronto-based news rovers Michael Callaghan, Maxine Crook, Don Cumming, John Kastner and John Martin. Host will once again be Rob Parker who, in addi- tion to his Up Canada job. on the national network, is kept busy as the host of a local current affairs TV series named 24 Hours for CELT, CBC's Toronto station.
