With Permission from Don Vair

Don Vair spent many years with CKNX radio station as the Art Director, before moving into his own tavelling CBC show, but he also appeared on the Dini Petty Show and had a private audience and photo shoot with former Prime Minister, Joe Clark.

During his younger years, he was part of a father and sons travelling gospel singing group and had a special guitar that he played during the show, which later was purchased by Jeff Smallwood for his show and to this day that guitar is treasured.

As the actor, "Country Clem" is the police chief, fire chief, landfill site inspector, undertaker and mayor of Westfield.

Clem has a vast audience: whether it be agriculture, sports, education, communications, medicine, service clubs, political events, finance, fairs, weddings, anniversaries or church functions; to name some. A "Country Clem" show is just clean fun for all.

Much has been written about Country Clem including "sensational, magic, rib tickling, brilliant, good natured, excellent, professional and even bizarre." Yet, Don Vair's passion is playing the organ, which he was given by a lady he taught to play so many years ago.

Some of Don's other talents include: Painting on Barnboard and Marienette Puppetry
