Comedian and singer Tracey Ullman’s visit to MuchMusic was one of the most hilarious and unpredictable during the first year of the network. Among the topics of the day were Binky the Yorkshire Terrier, kiss spittle, being a Benny Hill girl, men thrusting their pelvises while they dance, and her mom bringing two pounds of liver in her luggage on a visit to L.A. from England.
In 1984, Christopher Ward helped launch Muchmusic as Canada's first VJ. A former Second City Touring Company member and acclaimed songwriter, Ward has written for Diana Ross, Hilary Duff, The Backstreet Boys and many others. Ward received the 1990 Songwriter of the Year JUNO Award for Alannah Myles’ hit, "Black Velvet".
