More than one of you were quiet last week. You can make up for that tonight... share a thought, an observation, whatever strikes your fancy.

6:08 PM, November 26th, 2022
Steve, you need a new stage name. How about "The Cover Man." OK, so I suck at new handles, but I do like covers. Cheers.

6:15 PM, November 26th, 2022
Steve Kirkland (host)
A stage name, Tom? Hmm. I'm dramatic enough. Well, melodramatic anyway. Cheers

Shelley Ann Morris
Hi Steve, I know I’m a bit late here but I would like to extend a HUGE and HEARTY congratulations to you for 40 years on the air! Wow, where does the time go!? That’s a LOTTA volunteer hours both on and off the air. Way to go!

6:40 PM, November 26th, 2022
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Shelley! (Took me a bit to get back to the playlist there...) Thank-you. Great to be appreciated by a former volunteer and still (very) active listener to CKCU. Cheers

7:10 PM, November 26th, 2022
Terrific piece by The Jazz Butcher. Never heard that one.

Steve Kirkland (host)
His last recording, Tom.

7:49 PM, November 26th, 2022
Yup. Sad, but it's all part of The Great Gig in the Sky (not literally, of course). Saw them at Zaphods 20+ years ago. Fun group.

7:52 PM, November 26th, 2022
Boy was I off. Make that 1992, Zaphods. Steve, can you make time slow down please ? That's a good host !

7:56 PM, November 26th, 2022
Steve Kirkland (host)
Thanks for listening!
