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!
