Stranger Songs
Tuesday November 15th, 2022 with Mike Regenstreif
The 50th Anniversary of my first concert production.

This edition of Stranger Songs is an exercise in personal nostalgia. It was 50 years ago, on November 18, 1972, that I produced a concert for the first time. All the songs on this show are by artists I presented in concerts at various venues in Montreal in the 1970s, '80s and '90s. Click on LISTEN NOW to hear this show.

Joan, the John Hartford track is bluegrass. I had 90 minutes for this show and could have filled about 8 hours without repeating an artist.

As usual a wonderful playlist filled with so many gems. Mike, thank you so much for all you do. I wonder if you could help, I'm looking for Bruce Murdoch's cd 'Sometimes I Wonder Why the World' Any ideas?
