This week on Radio Free London for May 18th

Love is the way of the Church from St. James Westminster and mining the rich treasures of the London Music scene!


It's the sixth week of Easter and, as far as I can glean from the music, readings, homily and prayers, the theme for this week's service from St. James is that love of others (or 'agape', as the Greeks called it) is the foundation of the Church on which everything else is built.

In times of crisis, our immediate community becomes far more important. It's the only level of our society that can make sure that folks, who would otherwise be invisible to society at large, don't fall through the cracks.

This is one of those times so lets all spread that agape around and leave nobody in our community behind.

The musical theme for the rest of the show is pretty simple... local music from the '80s and '90s.

When I moved from Northern Ontario to London to go to Fanshawe College in the late 70s, I was astounded by the music scene here! I could go to 3 bars and see 3 bands IN ONE NIGHT! I saw performances everywhere from The Change of Pace folk club to the Cedar Lounge!

When I joined 94.9 CHRW Radio Western in the early 80's, I got to play all those local performers on my show as well. In that way, I feel like I've become a small part OF that scene, always encouraging folks during my show to get their butts out the door to support their local artists and musicians.

Most of the music you'll hear tonight are performers that I've seen live over the years.

I'll end the show with performances from Fanshawe Colleges 'Music Industry Arts' Program which has long been a breeding ground for the London Music scene.
