Background to Due South

Set in Chicago and filmed in Toronto, Due South was a hit in over sixty countries worldwide and became the most successful show in the history of Canadian TV.

The drama followed the adventures of Benton Fraser, the Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman, (Paul Gross) and Diefenbaker, his deaf, lip-reading half-wolf.

It's impossible to imagine the series without Jay's music on the soundtrack. Due South without that familiar guitar sound (perfectly illustrated by the track 'Cabin music') would be like the TV show Miami Vice without the music of Jan Hammer or James Bond without Monty Norman.

Since 2006 Steve has been using his radio show to back the calls of the legions of Due South fans to bring the show back.
