️ A Canada Day special... IF I can pull it off!


️ Well, I WAS able to pull off what I wanted and it turned out better than I thought it would! I was intending to play all Canadian vinyl as I just got access to the 94.9 CHRW Radio Western's record library which has resided in out tech room for a number of years. The station has been making an effort to re-catalog our record library and my Canada Day show was the first opportunity I had to use them for my show.

️ It turned out that the first shelf I looked at had our collection of compilation records. Many of these were limited run LPs put out by radio stations (both commercial and campus or organization promoting a genre or their city's music scene. I also found a number of compilations from the Music Industry Arts - Fanshawe College program dating as early as 1977. For many of the performers on these compilations, this was the only opportunity to get their songs on vinyl.

For all these reasons, I thought that it would be a great way to celebrate Canadian music while showing you some of the treasures in our record library as well!

Happy Canada Day!
