The Shades Of Things To Come: an introduction to our new general music show "Bedtime Stories"

"Bedtime Stories" is a general music show with features on - recording studios, record labels, arts and music venues - artists and bands both Canadian and international. The show also explores concepts, topics and stories that have fuelled musical creativity. And listeners are invited to enter "The Listening Room" where they can recommend Canadian artists and bands and venues to others in the CKCU community or suggest tunes for upcoming programs. These bedtimes stories aren't intended to send you to sleep, but if that's what happens ....well, that's probably another good reason to tune in." Shared Stories in the "Listening Room": what was the first live gig you went to ? And which was the most recent gig you attended? Please pop your answers into the show's interactive page; I'll be looking to play tunes from those artists in upcoming shows. Thanks!

Hi glenn, thanks for dropping by to say hi and for your "first and last". If you'd like to hear anything from an artist you heard at the TFF just pop your recommendation/suggestion in on the playlist here and I'll try to find it for a future edition. Brexit: they're still working on it and, in the New Year we'll feel its impact for the first time....

Hi Frank, firstly, best wishes to your lady, fingers crossed for a speedy recovery. Yes, as a friend of mine noticed, the sets on this first edition were much quieter than those I'd been playing on another type of show (Plunderphonics) recently.. But last night's selection of tunes may not be typical musically of what you'll hear every week because; as a general music show, it's important to feature a variety of styles and sounds from show to show. But I'm sure you will hear many of the artists featured tonight in future shows from time to time. Thanks so much for taking time to send your message, delighted to hear that it was an enjoyable and helpful show. And I'm sure the artists you plan to download will be pleased too, as that is what CKCU is all about: connecting our listeners to great music. Best regards to you both Chris

Ok, it’s true confession time! My first ‘concert’ that I saw with friends was the Bay City Rollers when they played in Ottawa on Friday August 13 1976 at the Civic Centre. We all dressed up in our Roller Gear and screamed when they appeared on stage. My first Canadian concert was seeing a great local band, the Cooper Brothers who were playing just before the fireworks on Victoria Day 1975. Now that’s going waaaay back
