Want to ask Richard Moore something - go for it! He is a veritable walking encyclopedia and is never happier than talking music.

Matt Monro In A Tv Show

Post by Jumong Singson » Wed May 25, 2022 2:20 am

PICTURED: Eddie Mercado, Leila Benitez, Matt Monro, & Eddie Ilarde

STUDENT CANTEEN was the first noontime variety show on Philippine television, it was broadcast by three networks: ABS-CBN from 1958 to 1965, GMA Channel 7 from 1975 to 1986 and RPN from 1989 to 1990.

Student Canteen was originally a radio show on DZXL hosted by Eddie Ilarde, Bobby Ledesma, Bobby de Veyra and Leila Benitez by the name of CBN Canteen.

The noontime show was aired on the canteen of the old Manila Chronicle Building in Aduana, Manila. It was later renamed Student Canteen after it became a hit to students.

Do You Know This Richard?, I Just Saw It On Facebook

That Matt Appeared on A Philippine TV Show called "Student Canteen" I think there is a chance you can get the video on ABS-CBN because if you look in the top it says it was broadcasted by three networks

ABS-CBN 1958-1965
GMA Channel 1975-1986
RPN (Radio Philippines Network) 1989-1990

These Network Still Existing on Philippine TV Though maybe you can contact them about this photo

Nice finds.

The problem often is that Matt would be invited onto TV shows whilst on tour and therefore the contracts didn't work their way into the archives so there will be odd things like this. The likelihood of it surviving is very low though, although it won't stop me asking.

Thanks

I've already heard back from ABS-CBN - They don't have anything at all featuring Matt. Disappointing, but not unsurprising.

Well that's Dorothy Squires as the placard on the model says "Say It With Flowers" and that is a song
she wrote and recorded with Russ Conway. Could be the model was the winner in some kind of beauty
contest.
