Episode #697

July 2, 2001 marked the beginning of my hosting career at UMFM when I hosted my very first show, which was a Canada Day special. Since then, Canadian music has always been the backbone of my shows, but it’s always nice to focus exclusively on Canadian music once in a while, especially around Canada Day. So here’s (almost) 2 hours of great Canadian music, as we take a musical road trip with stops in every province and territory!
