The Country Touch (excerpt)

Television (Excerpts) – 1969

The hay bales are out and the barn's a bustin' in these excerpts from popular Saturday night music show The Country Touch. There's a group singalong to 'Every Night When the Sun Goes Down', before jocular host Tex Morton (who became famous on both sides of the Tasman as the 'Yodelling Boundary Rider') steps in to introduce twins Carol and Kathleen from Milton, Otago. Morton delivers some choice Dad jokes before the duo sing 'Well Well Well'. Then duo Ken and Kay harmonise on a mournful 'When You Loved Me'.  

You know there's only thing better than appearing on Country Touch with a beautiful blonde on your shoulder, and that's appearing on Country Touch with two beautiful blondes...
– Host Tex Morton brings his best 'Dad jokes' to the party
