Canada, from "The S o c red Cow" of K to "Joe's Place" of Newfoundland felt the need of Wayne and Shutter's wit, There was also what Wayne described in .a preface as "patriotic corn" in a song called "Charkmetown" which became the theme of the pro r I duction and was to tune the. most of the numbersand lend rum up in next season's TV audience hummed as it left the extra glamor.
