Your Sunday afternoon zen: legends Ted Hamilton and Toni Lamond

This Sunday, let’s take it way back to some serious Australian entertaining legends: Ted Hamilton and Toni Lamond.

This footage is taken from In Melbourne Tonight, a variety show that ran from 1957 to 1970. A perfect vehicle for this incredibly charming rendition of “There Once Was a Man” from The Pajama Game – in which Lamond starred, right around this time.

If you don’t know these performers, don’t worry – start with Wikipedia. Look them up and get familiar with our legends.

And have a happy Sunday.
