	Great David, just what I was looking for.

	And thanks also to Graham and Donna. I take it that "The Happy Gang"
used SMILES as their theme with special lyrics. Did that hold true for
most of the years they were on the air?


	-----------------------------------------From: "David Lennick" 
 "Just Mary" used In A Clock Store. "Maggie Muggins" used The Kerry
Dance. Daily farm broadcasts used Country Gardens. A short-lived
program c. 1949 called Alan 'n' Me used The Grasshopper's Dance. Young
deejay Peter Jennings used "The Beachcomber" (Boosey & Hawkes 78) on
"Peter's Program. Max Ferguson (as himself and as old Rawhide) used
this great George Barnes version of Clarinet Polka. 


 Are you still out there?

 Can you think of any themes from early Canadian radio programs? I
 would say 1950s and back. They can be songs or classical or
 semi-classical pieces. The more familiar, the better. Drama or comedy
 programs would be best, but perhaps also music programs, if the
 were long-running and familiar. I figured you would know a couple
 from memory. Thanks.
