Christmas came early with the announcement of the brilliant Grand Cariboo Opry show coming up at the WECC. With so many of our favourites on board, we just have to celebrate with some songs. We were lucky enough to talk with the leader of the cavalcade himself, the Legendary (heart) Barney Bentall.

Today is the birthday of two great Canadian singer/songwriters, Sarah Harmer and ol’ Neil Young, so we had to celebrate that with some covers, guest appearances, and classics.

Featuring a look ahead at the Michael Johnston/Dave Clark house concert and the Jim Cuddy/Justin Rutledge show. Cuddy, of course, is half of Canada’s greatest songwriting duo and co-leader of one of our greatest bands, Blue Rodeo. Everybody knows that Blue Rodeo has been around for a long time and is very successful, but this band’s connections are wide and deep, as we proved in a look at just a few of the many, many Rodeo related artists and recordings.

And, with Halloween just around the corner, it’s time for some very scary songs…

October 22, 2006 – Ken Beattie, Dustin Bentall, John Ellis, and Leeroy Stagger!

Sometimes a guy just gets lucky and ends up in the right place at the right time. Today was such a day. With the Western Canadian Music Awards & festival in town and a lot of great musicians hanging around all weekend, there wasn’t much I could do but invite a bunch of them in, and luckily for me, a few of the greatest agreed to drop by. What happens when you throw Ken Beattie of Radiogram, Leeroy Stagger, John Ellis, and Dustin Bentall in a room together with a few acoustic guitars. Magic. Tune in and find out for yourself. This was a show not to be missed and not to be forgotten. Thanks so much to my great guests for making this possible. Truly an amazing way to cap off a great weekend of music.

I don’t know about you, but I had a pretty great summer. Too bad it had to end, but it’s time to go back to work.

So this episode featured songs celebrating back to school and the wold of work.

So this episode featured songs celebrating back to school and the world of work.
