relates how he came by the name of "Fibber". This episode is also one of very few in which
Molly referred to her husband as "Fibber" - she usually called him "McGee" or "Dearie".

The Wayne and Shuster Show October 13, 1949 - "Sault-Soo"
This is one of the few Canadian shows from the golden age that I have in my collection.
Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster were the comedy team that appeared most often on the "Ed
Sullivan" TV show, often performing sketches loosely based on the works of Shakespeare.
Dispite their great popularity in the United States, they always remained Canadian entertainers,
performing on CBC-TV until Johnny's death in January, 1990. This show is from very early in
their career as they started out on the CBC Radio Network. The guest is Bert Pearl of "Happy
Gang" fame, and the announcer is Herb May.
