DJ Neville (“Cham the Man”) Chamberlain hosts this episode from the first series of the NZBC’s nationwide search for stars. Judges Nick Karavias and Jim McNaught and guest Allison (“Queen of Pop”) Durbin preside over entries in the original song competition (all sung by Yolande Gibson); and the New Faces segment features vocal trio The Shevelles, a saxaphone quartet and 16-year-old country singer Brendan Dugan (the eventual winner of the series). A film clip of Wellington band The Avengers’ classic ‘Love Hate Revenge’ shows as the judges convene.

Neville Chamberlain was my Uncle. A bit of a hero when I was a kid growing up in Wellington. Happy to give any information that I have.

Nick Karavias - Nick lived in Raumati on the Kapiti Coast and worked with Todd Motors Ltd in Wellington, circa 70's - 80's back in the days when "car pooling" was cool. Very dry sense of humour.

It's rather unfortunate that the host has an identical name to a famous England Prime Minister. Hard to find out very much about him because the internet searches are cluttered with aforementioned famous one.

You’re all married. Your husbands don’t mind you performing like this? 
We were a bit self-indulgent on that show and we deserved all the brickbats that we got ... we got carried away with our own self importance 
I’d tell you what it’s called but it’s rather hard to pronounce — it’s a French tune.
