Gordon Peeling's Traditional Retirement

This week was my co-host Gordon Peeling's retirement and so I wanted to mark the occasion with a few songs from the tradition. Once I started digging I found so many great songs that I decided to build a whole show around the theme. Congratulations Gord, and we're looking forward to sharing your retirement with you over the airwaves!
