Canadian Spaces
Saturday February 23rd, 2019 with Shelley Ann Morris and Chris White
Ray Barfitt, Durham County Poets, Sneezy Waters, Lynne Hanson, Tara Holloway

Ray Barfitt selects '40 minutes of uninterrupted folk' from his massive collection. Ray is a major music lover and the person behind the "Ray's Plays" feature heard every Tuesday morning on CKCU's "Welcome to My World" show. Ray says: "My playlist this morning is all about Chopper McKinnon. Though I hardly knew him personally, he has been one of the most significant people in my life. Once I found Canadian Spaces in September, 1985 a week after arriving in Ottawa, I have listened every Saturday morning whenever I had access to a radio and was in range of the CKCU signal. In my view, each of these songs is worthy of a Juno award if it has not already won one." -------- Kevin Harvey from the Durham County Poets calls in with updates for the Space Cadets. Website: -------- The great Sneezy Waters pays a visit to preview his concerts coming up at the National Arts Centre's Fourth Stage on Saturday evening, March 9 and Sunday afternoon, March 10. Sneezy's website is -------- Lynne Hanson takes time from her *busy* schedule to talk about her role in the FemmeVox event taking place at the Great Canadian Theatre Company tomorrow afternoon (Sunday). She'll lead a song writing workshop at 2:30 pm and perform concert at 4:30 pm. Information at
