Hinterland Who’s Who

A little bit of Canadiana for those of us missing the winters of our childhoods.  The theme music will conjure up winter Saturday mornings when the snow was piled deep outside your door.  Your parents still tucked in bed, you were curled up on the floor in front of the tv.  Your corn flakes getting soggy as you switch quickly from one station to the next to see which of the 3 you could get had the best cartoon on next.  Then… you hear the call of the Hinterland and you stop, hand still on the knob, to find out Who’s Who….

thanks to DeadRobot for the memories.

    [this is good] Yeah – the theme music for HWW is everything, sucks you right back to 1975 and keeps you there in front of the Canadian TV documentary. This Land also gets me :..”Canada wondrous country that you are…” where was Joni when we realy needed her?
