#ThrowbackThursday #TBT #MagicMikesCastle #MagicMikeLikey #Winnipeg Circa 1989, my newly-acquired "wizard" persona; What came next was the transformation of my "circus ring-leader" persona "Merlin" (sometimes "Magic Michael Merlin", even "Magic Mike Merlin") on my original TV-show #KiddieCabaret to the "Magic Mike" Likey of the newly-renamed and re-formatted TV-show "Magic Mike's Castle" of that era, which would last until the end of it's 9-year run!In the early season of "Magic Mike's Castle", I hadn't painted an actual castle set/background, so I used a chroma-key background "borrowed" from a children's book which bought me time while I painted the 6-foot high by 8-foot wide castle walls! They were attached via gaffer-tape to 4 flats. You can see part of that set here...
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!
