My absolute fave Curtis Mayfield track!! Thanx for playing it!!! And some trivia for you. Hell's Half Acre were the ONLY band from the London Ontario area to be on a n It Came From Canada comp. I bugged several local bands to send OG some tapes and they never bothered. Keep on Rockin'!!!

Absolutely wonderful show today. Heard last half live this aft. Tonight, reheard most of it 'on demand' to share with Keith. Brilliant to close with "Date with the GG"! Lots of laughs: Neil Young's "Don't Spook the Horse." also. Which "Cornwall" is Hank singing about? Great work; thanks so much, Renny!
