Roots and Rhythms
Sunday October 14th, 2018 with Reprobate Renny
REEFER RECORDINGS: Great ganga almighty! With 3 days 'til legalization, tonight's a cannabis countdown with 7 decades of smouldering marijuana music: viper jazz from the '30's to some reefer rockabilly from the first decade of the new millennia.

This show would not have been possible without guidance and help of David Lewis, music aficionado, former CKCU announcer and all round great guy. Thanks David!
