Today we start off with a tribute to friends old and new who have passed away over the past week in music history. I'm very late to the party in discovering Winnipeg's own Kipp Kocay, and I'm sad that I didn't seek him out before his untimely passing this week. We also fondly remember the music of John Bottomley, Jesse Winchester, and Merle Haggard. I ran out of time so didn't get to John Prine, but certainly love and miss him as well. Hour 2 is all new music culled from new releases over the past couple of weeks, and there are some gems!
This show was recorded on 4/3/21, and hopefully it's not the Final Countdown, but it did inspire two hours of countdowns, count-ins, and a whole lot of numbers!
This show is a little different than your usual Sunday afternoon singer/songwriter fare, with a bit wider scope and some artists and songs we don't normally play on the show. It's fun to loosen things up and have a little fun once in a while.
Today on the show, a chat with Matt Masters about his new soulful album Everybody Loves a Winner, we visit with The Mavens and the Middle Brothers, say goodbye to Larry McMurtry, prep you for Your Next Haircut with Corin Raymond, and spin some new music!
Well, it's beginning to look a lot like Spring, and I couldn't be more thrilled! A bunch of timely songs in honour of the season is definitely warranted, plus some new music, German requests, and a bit of St. Patrick's Day music (with or without a Celtic edge to it), even if I don't know when the actual day is. Oh well, the music is great nonetheless!
