Enough of the Best of shows, enough of the fancy themes and wacky ideas, today, it is time to rock. Well, TTBTGH style. Just a few of the old favourites we haven’t heard for a while, and some new stuff. 2 hours of great stuff only loosely connected by my musical tastes, and it worked out anyway!

A mixed bag today for sure:
First up, a trip inside my musical time machine. I’m always amazed at how listening to a song can so vividly take me back to a place & time, and I relived a few good (and some not so good) memories with a few musical trips back in time.
Next up, a tribute to the great Joni Mitchell, who was being honoured in Toronto this weekend.
Then, some new and notable stuff from the mailbag and the shopping bag.
