Sixties music show C'Mon was a pacey pop confection, complete with go-go dancers, hipster presenter Peter Sinclair, and a distinctive pop art set. In one of two surviving episodes, regulars Mr Lee Grant, Herma Keil and Billy Kristian (aka Billy Karaitiana) manage to zip through 17 songs, with help from guests The Gremlins — who perform the night's only original number, Loxene Gold Disc nominee 'Blast Off 1970' — Kiwi guitar pioneer Bob Paris, and "southern songbird" Bronwyn Neil. The visuals hit maximum freakout with Mr Lee Grant, before a final medley of nostalgic favourites — including a brief musical cameo from Sinclair.
Being on that show was big time and I mean, I think it was Kevan Moore the producer at the time...just basically had a selection of stuff he wanted done ... there was just no question of us going up and saying to them 'hey we want to do one of ours'.– Wayne Mason on who chose the songs on C'Mon, in episode two of Give it a Whirl
