Stranger Songs
Tuesday August 23rd, 2022 with Mike Regenstreif
Artists of My Montreal

"Artists of My Montreal" is the theme for this edition of Stranger Songs. I moved to Montreal in 1968 when I was 14 and lived there until 2007. The artists on this show all lived in Montreal at some point in those years and we first crossed paths while they lived there. Many are still friends today. There were many more artists that could have been included had time allowed. Click on LISTEN NOW to hear this show. Click on LISTEN to hear the current CKCU broadcast.
