Max Ferguson on AIH
Friday, March 8, 2013 |
Legendary CBC personality Max Ferguson died yesterday. Mr. Ferguson he was 89.
For 52 years, Max Ferguson charmed Canadians with his wit and bang-on impersonations, including the voices of Prime Ministers Diefenbaker and Trudeau. He was the host of the CBC Radio programs Rawhide, and The Max Ferguson Show, which ended in 1971.
In 1977, Max Ferguson and his former co-host, Allan McFee, were guest-hosts of As it Happens, in which they tried to revive The Max Ferguson Show. Here's a wonderful clip of that short-lived attempt.
