Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday September 9th, 2015 with Lloyd Smiley
Otis Redding, Box Finds, and Road Songs

Happy Birthday, Otis Redding! (Wherever you are) Tonight, we remember the awesomeness that was Otis, as well as the awesomeness that is the box of CDs in the CKCU station which, after being input into the music library, are picked up by such DJs as... myself. Some good finds this week! Other than all that, I'll play you some songs I have enjoyed listening to in my pre-owned vehicle, on trips to and from wonderful places like Kingston and Lac-des-seize-iles. Enjoy! ~Lloyd Smiley.
