Volume, Contrast, Brilliance
Saturday May 30th, 2015 with Steve Kirkland

This show is dedicated to the memory of Rob Stewart, host of "British Airwaves", one of CKCU's earliest and best programs which he presented into 1983 before departing Ottawa, leaving a lasting legacy for aficionados of eclectic music from the UK, and providing me with an opportunity to step into his shoes to carry the program on for a few more years. Tonight's program is entirely music from the UK...
