The Passing Parade with John Doremus is a series of 130 tales that was originally syndicated in the United States. On a visit there in the mid 1960’s, Grace Gibson Productions picked up the Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific rim rights to the show.
John Doremus was an American announcer who had that rare talent for story telling. He could hold a listener’s interest, and had a warm, easy and mellifluous voice – all with a sort of ‘campfire yarn’ style of delivery.
