There is nothing better than listening to Ian's stories and songs on a cold winters day!

Great show Ian and Chris! Ian Tambyn is a national treasurer and Canada's greatest songwriter, in my opinion!

"...national treasure..." not "national treasurer"... :-)

Well Ian Tamblyn is a treasurer of a sort... of some of our priceless Canadian culture! Good to hear more of Ian's music, and the stories behind the songs!

Well, ok, maybe not "national" treasurer, but an important treasurer indeed.

"They're pathetic, but they're amusing." Excellent!

Enjoying the stories, loved “The Sailor” and portrayals of this land’s history through song. Thanks Ian, thanks Chris.

Thanks for playing that Frog's Night Out.. Love the 'leopard-skin suit' -- reminds me of seeing those little leopard frogs decades ago. Bright green but with those black spots. I hope the species is still around!

Still wondering what is the reference to "the Montreal was tumbling down" in the Boxcar song. Ian Tamblyn if you see this could you tell us please? I bought that Group of Seven album and had to get extra copy as gift for a Canadian ex-pat (BTW that's ideal for sending to anyone with memories of Canada who can't be here.)

I echo the comments about the timelessness of Ian Tamblyn's albums and the great sound. I agree with Ian that Nick Drake's brilliant albums remain timeless and Joe Boyd can be thanked for that.

Let it Go is a song of pure genius. The most recent album may be Ian's best.
