Andrew King recently saw this old LP for sale on Kijiji: “Jack McPartlin Live Sing-Along Album recorded at the the Colonel By Lounge, Chateau Laurier mid 1960s.”




** OC Transpo recently tweeted this photo of an old OC Transpo board game. “We released a board game in 1977.  10,000 units were produced & it sold for $6.98.”  I would love to play this. If anyone has a copy plase get in touch!
