Default YONGE STREET - Toronto Rock & Roll Stories Documentary

Hi guys,

I know this is a long shot but I'm desperately trying to obtain a copy of this 3 part documentary directed by Bruce McDonald that aired on Bravo Canada in 2011. As far as I can tell, no dvd was ever released and I have been unable to locate a copy online. if anyone is able to help me out with this then I'd be eternally grateful - it's a gift for my father who spent his youth in Toronto watching the likes of Gordon Lightfoot and Ronnie Hawkins.

Description:
YONGE STREET - Toronto Rock & Roll Stories tells the untold tales of those first steps, with performers revealing, in their own words, their struggles trying to make the scene on Yonge Street, from Rock & Roll's dodgy beginnings in the late 1950s through to 1975, when strip clubs took over Yonge Street and dropped the curtain on this most exciting era of the city's musical and social history.

Thanks man - I've sent several emails to d Brady via his website but have had no reply. I really hope someone managed to record it when it originally aired as I know my father would get a kick out of it.

The DVD appears to be available for sale. If you go to David Brady Productions, along the top is "DVDs" and Yonge Street is listed under TV. Good luck.

I'm pretty sure I met David Brady backstage in Calgary in 2009-He had the DVD's to give to Gordon..
I videotaped the shows when they aired..
I don't see a link to order the discs - http://www.davidbradyproductions.com...etail.php?p=52
