Bandy fans will have noticed that the M&S edition of That's Me in the Middle has been unavailable for a year or so. It is out of print, but Sybertooth Inc. has acquired the rights and will be bringing out a new edition for Canada and the USA in 2018. In the Commonwealth (apart from Canada), Prelude books has a paperback edition for sale now! (E-book editions are available throughout the world currently - check out Kobo or Amazon for those.)

Hi to Angie and Darrell.  I am a daughter of Helen Maud (Demmings) Kembel.  I have been reading through this thread and find it very interesting.  My mother always told us that her racial origin was Irish/Scottish/Dutch but I am seeing a Portugese connection here.  George Fletcher Demmings was my grandfather and George Jr. is my mother's twin brother.  I don't know very much about the Demmings side of my family tree as my mother never spoke about it much other than the names of her siblings and where they were located.  We moved to Saskatchewan when I was a year old, after my dad Theodore Richard Kembel left the Navy in 1946.  I do remember Irene Mullins and family came to visit us in Regina in the 1950's.  George and Glady came to BC, with my parents, to visit me in 1976.  That was the only time I met them but Glady and I wrote letters until her death.  You, Gary Demings and Larry Demings would be my cousins.  If anyone would like, I can be contacted at cherrykembel9@gmail.com.

As some Bandy fans may know, editor Douglas Gibson was sort of the godfather of The Bandy Papers, encouraging Donald Jack to extend Three Cheers For Me into the series we know as 9-vol The Bandy Papers. Doug just this month received the Order of Canada, a high honour that is Canada's equivalent of the knighthood Bandy received. Author Terry Fallis recently included Doug's own book on a reading list, along with Three Cheers For Me -- see below for Doug's blog post:

Hi Jordan,

Sorry for the delay in replying. Sybertooth doesn't have the rights to the old RCI radio play from the 70s. I would guess that either RCI or an independent producer would hold the rights, which were probably originally only licensed for radio broadcast (rather than recording sales), as the only known recordings are LPs intended for radio station use. (And for a limited time, perhaps. As I recall, dimly, the LPs had an "expiry date" on them -- "not to be broadcast after...").

RCI or the CBC's archivist might be able to answer the question of rights by looking up the original paperwork around the production.

Super-annoying, I can't post a link. You'll have to google Worldcat and search for Three Cheers for Me, I believe the radio play is the third result.

Does Sybertooth own the rights to the RCI radio play? Has anyone thought of trying to digitize it from one of the remaining copies? There are 6 listed online at various libraries. Link posted in the next message.
