Music Hop was a Canadian music television series which aired on CBC Television from 1963 to 1967.


Pop and rock music was featured in this series for youth, essentially a Canadian version of American Bandstand.[1]


The first season (1963–1964) was a Toronto production with host Alex Trebek who welcomed visiting musicians and introduced songs from the house musicians before a studio audience of dancing teenagers. He was replaced in following seasons by Dave Mickie, a disc jockey for CKEY in that time. Series musicians were Norm Amadio and the Rhythm Rockers, joined by The Girlfriends who were a female vocal trio. The producer of this season was Stan Jacobson.

The second season's schedule expanded to all weekdays with other Canadian cities contributing to the production of Music Hop:

  • Mondays: Let's Go originated from Vancouver with producer Ain Soodor
  • Tuesdays: Jeunesse Oblige originated from Montreal with producer Pierre Desjardins
  • Wednesdays: Hootenanny originated from Winnipeg with host Ray St. Germain (Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee) with producer Ray McConnell
  • Thursdays: Music Hop originated from Toronto with producer Allan Angus
  • Fridays: Frank's Bandstand originated from Halifax with producer Manny Pitson


The first season of this half-hour series was broadcast Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern) from its debut 3 October 1963. In the following two seasons, it was seen every weekday, also at 5:30 p.m., since 28 September 1964. In its final season, the Friday episode was omitted from 3 October 1966 until its final broadcast on 28 June 1967.


Music Hop attracted approximately one million weekly viewers according to CBC estimates, mostly under age 20, with an estimated one-third of those viewers adults.
