This variety program was part of the CBC’s opening schedule, in the second week of September 1952. It was a CBLT production out of Toronto’s Jarvis Street studios,  and featured local talent of all ages and abilities. It was very much a product of its time, and only ran for two seasons, but it did at least give exposure to all kinds of Canadian performers in what was then an exciting new medium.
