HI Steve, listening to or hope to be once it's on from The British in Aylmer. They had cool rock n roll live bands here 60's, 70's!

6:07 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Martians, Moaners, Boogie Children, Loners, Undergrounders, Depth Chargers, Idle Worshipers, Popsters, Eclectic Warriors lend me your ears

Hi Mike... I like how you've recently taken me "on tour" at different venues... good for this show to "travel", inter-provincially to boot... I only got to Ottawa in 1980 but I can only imagine who/what might have played their before that

6:13 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
their or there, when or where...

6:17 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Mike P, did the British compete with the Chaud?

6:21 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Emily Haines fronts Metric, not the band I mentioned... close though

54-46 was his number. In my view, never got the credit that was due for a career that spanned the lifetime of the music.

6:58 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Richard Thompson's shows his 20-year old chops on Fairport Convention's rocking version of Ashley Hutchings' song about the English mechanical performance artist (think robots) Bruce Lacey

Mr. Jc, the sorriest aspect of home-recording this show (usually by Thursday) is being unable to slip something in at the last minute to commemorate recent events such as Toots's death... next week, though, for sure

7:01 PM, September 12th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Dave, Toots & the Maytals played an inspiring outdoor show on the grounds of the War Museum here in Ottawa years back.. on the River Stage, I believe... not sure how long ago... the audience heard what we expected (and wanted to hear), it was a memorable concert

I know, and many have said that too, so I completely understand, but just wanted to make a mention as it's today's sad news. First new LP in a decade was only released in the last couple of weeks too.

7:07 PM, September 12th, 2020
Dave JC
2009 I believe, I was lucky enough to see it. Followed up by another one more ore less from his music generation, Jimmy Cliff in 2010.

Steve Kirkland (host)
Sign-off... Good Night, Thanks for listening

7:48 PM, September 12th, 2020
