The Passing Parade
The Passing Parade with John Doremus is a series of 130 tales that were originally syndicated in the United States. On a visit there in the mid 1960’s, Grace Gibson Productions picked up the Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific rim rights to the show.
John Doremus was an American announcer who had that rare talent for being able to tell a story. He could hold a listener’s interest, and had a warm, easy and mellifluous voice and used a sort of ‘campfire yarn’ style of delivery.
The Passing Parade is broadcast Monday to Friday at 10:40am.
