From 'The Judy & Jim Show' to 'The Flying Walchuks'

Judy Ginn Walchuk and Jim Walchuk were the 'Donny & Marie' of Canada back in the 1970's with their swingin' variety show on CBC-Television, 'The Judy and Jim Show'.

After that, the brother-and-sister act travelled around the world - where they worked with music and show business royalty. They even played for Noel Coward's birthday party in London - at the request of David Frost!

40 years later, this talented duo is back together again, making music on a new release called 'The Flying Walchuks'. Judy and Jim came into the studio to share some memories and some tracks from their new album.
