Podcast: July 1, 2018 – Canada Day Special!

Episode #746

Canada is the greatest country in the world for many reasons, most notably to us, the amazing music that comes from here. We celebrate great Canadian music every single week on this program, but especially on the occasion of our nation’s birthday, it’s time to do another Canada Day Spectacular, where we play nothing but truly essential Canadian music. This one’s especially for our great international listeners who might not know just how much great music we give to the world, but also for anyone who enjoys some of the greatest songs & writers that the world has ever known.
