February 17, 2008 – One for Willie P

Episode #249 – One for Willie P.

A show I wish I never had to do. Yesterday, one of the true guiding lights of this show went out, as Canada’s greatest songwriter of all time, Willie P Bennett died. His songs and spirit will live on forever, but it’s sad to think that we’ll never see him or hear from him again. In memory of him, two hours of memories and music from the man, including Willie originals, Willie covers, a song about Willie, songs featuring Willie, and Willie live. We heard from friends like Stephen Fearing, Scott Nolan, Colin Linden, and Willie’s longtime boss, bandmate, and friend, Fred Eaglesmith.

Push on, you weary soul…
