The Lodger track sounds great 👍

hi Steve. became distracted last week, sorry. never been to the Chaud which I believe was larger than the British and both probably equally rowdy in the day. I used to go to Gilleys barn sometimes in the 80'S in the basement of the BRITISH are numerous photos of 70's looking bands like Cooper Brothers, Fist, and more. I got here after the fact in the 80's yet early enough to see Teenage Head, John Cale, Lyres, Nina Hage, Furs, and stuff. Is the Listen now on yet on the computer? I have my Sony transistor going anyways. at the Oak on Beechwood. Thanks

Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Mike... transistor, I love that... my transistor days were AM only, can't remember if my hand-held radio had FM, which I only came to in my mid-teens... thx for the info on the Chaud... I too was an 80s arrival in Ottawa, exactly 40 summers ago, gravitated to, and joined (1983) CKCU... a lot of great music and radio in over those years

Ahh, Montrose. The last time sammy Hagar made any sense. Nice version.

Hi, Jeb... the whole radio session is great -- more than decent sound quality, lots of offhand band member commentary, archetypal American 70s radio anouncer, etc.

it's a weekly thing, curse (mea culpa) of home-recording...

7:40 PM, September 19th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Wally, No! I had heard that Lee Kerslake (Uriah Heep drummer) and John Turner (shot-term Caadian Prime Minisgter), but Mr. Kusworths death is news to me

7:44 PM, September 19th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
That the aforementioned persons had died, to be clear

7:45 PM, September 19th, 2020
I just found out when Chris Seventeen posted it on social media, very sad he was only 60 years old & passed away in his sleep I heard

7:48 PM, September 19th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Bah... dying in your sleep is the way to go... but not at 60
