This was the final edition of the programme hosted by Pete Myers. When he came to the programme in 1993, “Happy Station” was the oldest international programme still being broadcast, and it had had only two hosts in its first 64 years: Eddie Startz until 1970 and Tom Meijer for 23 more years. Pete had to leave the programme when he was scheduled for surgery in 1994, so he took the opportunity to take a humorous look back at his years as host of the show.

Producer: Pete Myers

Broadcast: July 24, 1994
