Enjoying the music. It is also fascinating hearing the history of Ian's process of recording and his various collaborators, and how he took on various challenges so successfully - finding his singing voice, the diving projects, .... The human rights song and corresponding Nelson Mandela story was very moving. The many sides of Ian Tamblyn....

Cher Canadian Space Commandante White ~ Tuned into what I thought was the Mighty 93.1 Eclectic Avenue CKCU-FM at the anointed 'Make yourself a pot of your favourite brown drink...' hour and was somewhat taken aback to find that the station had been hijacked by the All Ian Tamblyn Wireless Wavelength. Muchas mercis for coordinating the friendly takeover, CW. Mahalo ~ l Coyote >>>> ~~~ <<<< Audio-Visual Postlude There I was... at the ready, hot brown caffeinated beverage in hand, sitting contentedly here in the sun-drenched el Rancho Untaméd kitchen nook, checking out the sports and comics in the daily paper (and the news before it becomes history), alongside the timeless Tenagagan Sipi (Rivière Gatineau) and I noticed that the Nudes of Wakefield Calendar visible across the room featured none other than Capitane Tamblyn decked out in a newsboy's cap and naught but his birthday suit, at the helm of a fine figure of a vessel in full sail. So... you've got 'Dr. T, the Bird Tape Man of the Gatineau' on the radio airing the stories behind some of his songs, while baring his soul in the songs themselves and Ian Tamblyn, the mariner~adventurer, baring his arse on our kitchen wall. A revelatory moment to be sure. Long may your big jib haul, bucko! Buoyantly ~ l Coyote

I missed this the first time around but am so enjoying listening to this. No matter what life has thrown at me and where it’s taken me, the beauty of these songs always draws me back to Ian’s fantastic music and it’s part in my life can not be overstated. An absolutely brilliant artist who I’ve been fortunate to know since a concert in Guelph in 1986. Thank you Ian for your art!
