#FBF #FlashbackFriday #Winnipeg #FirstFemaleMagicClubMember #MagicMikeLikey #ColleenNick Circa 1992/3, I was asked to do a caricature/presentation for Winnipeg's Magic Club Magic Circle 7's long time member, Robert Barker. I was also instrumental in having the club's first female member (I was told) be inducted. Pictured here is myself, Bob, the late Herb Link, and Colleen Nick. What an amazing club...not only good magicians, but really nice guys! How blessed I was to be a member. For the younger guys, the IBM - International Brotherhood of Magicians was co-founded by Winnipegger Len Vintus; the Linking Ring (the I.B.M.'s official publication) was printed there for many years, too! Such legends as Mel Stover and the founder of the Society of Young Magicians, Bill Brace, were also Winnipeggers. As a Montrealer, I feel privileged to have been a part of this illustrious tradition for the 13 years I lived there.
Magic Mike Likey
In the '80's and '90's I hosted and produced in Winnipeg, Canada, the longest-running television show about magic, "Magic Mike's Castle". The show ended after nine years. Today, the "Magic Mike Likey Universe" continues on BlogTalk Radio, with "Magic Mike's Castle" and on Speaker Radio!
