A weekly variety program originating from Winnipeg that featured Jack Farr, aka Captain Radio, as host. As described by the CBC Radio Guide, “a wildly unpredictable program…portions of which its studiedly bombastic host insists are currently being pirated by a prestigious New York-based show.” Interviews with experts from politics, music, movies and sports made up the program.

Regular contributors included Danny Finkelman, Bill Casselman, Mary Ambrose and John Robertson. The program began Apr. 23, 1983 and ran until June 27, 1992. Producer, Jim Millican. Aired from 2 until 5 pm every Saturday on the network.
