Benoît, it is indeed a Good Evening... Thanks for tuning in!

Amazing the difference using "." and not "!" can make.

6:13 PM, November 25th, 2023
Man, The Guess Who! Canada had some decent bands in the end 60s and 70s!

(had to reboot the computer to gbet the playlist up again... did I miss anyone in the process?)

End of the 60s start of the 70s... my musical indoctrination phase...

6:41 PM, November 25th, 2023
Mine started a bit earlier: r n r (and other styles) on 50s radio, Elvis of course, then The Beatles, and all the rest. I got ALL the very best of the pop. And then, after a divorce, The Tragically Hip and others, end 80s, 90s, oughts...

6:45 PM, November 25th, 2023
(I didn't notice the playlist reboot.)

Grew up on army base. Not much influence tgere. Would tune in US am radio on the bounce on summer nights. Signal would fade and come back. Everything seemed so far away and exotic. Early 70's moved to city and a whole new world.

6:59 PM, November 25th, 2023
That Mother Superior title! hah!

7:01 PM, November 25th, 2023
markk: !!! Yeah, country (isolaled) army base to modern city -- classic rock in full flower, freeform rock waiting in the wings, etc. -- would have been quite the shocker!

Patched in.

Glad to find myself in the company of a finer vintage of music aficionados, Benoît and mark... interesting stories both...

7:12 PM, November 25th, 2023
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hey Jeb! Feel free to share your back story...

7:14 PM, November 25th, 2023
Taking the show on the road, in the car: going up to Kaffe 1870 in Wakefield to hear Vanwho play (solo). Later!

7:17 PM, November 25th, 2023
It all started when I was given the 45s of School's Out and Battle of New Orleans.....that explains a lot.

I'll leave you with a last story. In probably 1992, on a very warm August or early September evening, I saw that Albert Collins was playing at The Penguin, on Elgin. Went. It was full, but not totally packed. He, he was struttin' his stuff, playing his (cordless) Tele, walking around and enjoying himself. At one point later on, he actually talked to me when he was walking (and I was standing, grinning like a fool); something like "I never learned all the chords, I mostly found how to bend the strings" he went, pretty well radiant. A great show it, open doors, warm and 'new orleans' summery... No bummer, but I thought about just how lucky I'd been, when he died about a year later.

"A great show it was..."

Thanks for the stories B, enjoy Kaffe 1870.

Steve Kirkland (host)
Thanks for coming along for the ride...

7:53 PM, November 25th, 2023
Bad bar story, I was with Big Al in the 90s and saw Schooly D on Elgin street and someone got shot by a drive by just before we got there, it was a heavy show.

7:55 PM, November 25th, 2023
Listening on demand a bit later than usual and enjoyed the Emma Anderson and Tick White tracks but I'm not done Listening yet.

3:18 PM, November 29th, 2023
That should read Rick White and also really enjoyed the City Of The Sun instrumental but it seems to be hard to find a physical copy.
