In 1967 Wally was approached by the producer Ian Grant to host Country Meets Folk, a new series which bravely brought together the realms of country and folk music. Originally intended as a six-week series, it remained on air for six and a half years. As a reason for the show's success, he explained that, "although both musical forms had their own identity, neither had the individual airplay that the ever increasing fans would have liked".
