Wednesday Special Blend
Wednesday July 13th, 2011 with tic & Dick Alta Vista
1st Annual René Joly Special

There was a tribute and celebration of René Joly’s life on Wednesday’s Hump Day version of Special Blend on July 13, 2011 from 7:00 to 9:30 AM. The show had on hand some close friends of René, plus “tic” featured a lot of world, Celtic, and didjeridu music from his collection. Special Guest Dick Alta Vista from “Both Kinds of Music” played music from artists like: Katy Moffat, Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Todd Snider, Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriguez, Tim O'Brien, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, Tom T. Hall Kinky Friedman, John Prine, Ronee Blakely, Giant Sand, and Steve Forbert. He continued the tribute on his show from 1:30-3:30. For those that knew him, René was an avid music lover attending Irene’s Pub, and many local and long distance music festivals. René passed away suddenly on March 29, 2011 at the age of 63. René’s family made a very generous donation of René’s CD collection to the CKCU Music Library – a superb collection collected over a lifetime by a true music lover. Our hosts and audiences will be all the richer as a result, and we will cherish this donation for a very long time.
