Impressive playlist!

Thanks Ben for including a Dave Kusworth related song. I heard an interview with Stephen Duffy (Lilac Time) talking about gathering some of his very early recordings he did with Dave Kusworth with the band The Hawks for a release later this year. Looking forward to hearing that.

Thanks Ben & enjoyed the first 2 parts and this one has a great selection of those we sadly lost in 2020 & you have included many that didn't get much attention.

Yes Rob, it's bittersweet to hear these tunes but thanks to CKCU we can keep this music on the airwaves. Nobody else gonna play 90% of this...

Hey Jas, was just thinking earlier that - while we all miss other forms of Saturday night music - I don't really miss DJing in January when it's -20 to a mostly empty room.

8:52 PM, January 23rd, 2021
Jas Nasty
I dunno even that sounds pretty good right now! :)

9:06 PM, January 23rd, 2021
Ben Armstrong (host)
I hear ya. And a DJ booth with a protective screen would address other issues... ;)
