Good evening heavy listeners. Any memories of these musicians who left us in 2022?

8:12 PM, January 7th, 2023
Always nice to turn on the car and be greeted by Picture Music!

Ben Armstrong (host)
Hey Sean, glad to hear your ears perked up to Klaus Schulze! Alas, we don't have time for the full side tonight.

8:25 PM, January 7th, 2023
Choice selections as usual and several artists that are new to my ears!

8:41 PM, January 7th, 2023
Yes, for Schulze's many virtues, being concise was not one of them :)

8:47 PM, January 7th, 2023
Ben Armstrong (host)
Thanks Manmohan. Yes, some of these artists are making their CKCU debut tonight. I think it's important to air the previosly unaired, even posthumously.

8:49 PM, January 7th, 2023
Ben Armstrong (host)
... and to play some great pop songs, too!

9:22 PM, January 7th, 2023
Good stuff. Love that our Ottawa friends are being remembered here too. <3

Was driving and grooving to Judy's version of High Flying Bird! Cool cover. Thanks for all, Ben.

9:42 PM, January 7th, 2023
Ben Armstrong (host)
Of course, Leege. Those hit home.

9:45 PM, January 7th, 2023
Ben Armstrong (host)
Thanks Chris. I wondered about "High Flying Bird", too. Judy Henske was the first to record it. You probably know Richie Havens and/or Jefferson Airplane's versions?
