Today a 2-hour celebration of great Canadian music. The Junos are especially silly this year, so it’s hard to consider winning or even being nominated a huge honour, but any celebration of great Canadian music is ok by me. With that in mind, this show looked at some of the better music being nominated, as well as some of the winners from the non-televised awards (which are always more important anyway).

Also, a listen to some of the great music put out by Sarah Harmer, who is in town this week. Not only does she put out great music on her own, but Harmer has been on more great Canadian albums than anyone I can think of, so we heard some of her contributions to others’ albums.

It’s Easter Sunday. We try really hard not to delve into politics or religion on this show; we’re non-judgmental listening at its finest. But I have noticed that a lot of my favourite singer/songwriters have name-checked the man upstairs in songs that aren’t exactly religious.

For some odd reason, we took a trip to the barnyard, with songs about chickens, poneys, and even some monkeys. Don’t ask.

In between all of that silliness, we had a visit from Todd Hunter & Jeff Derksen, who are about to release a new Todd Hunter Band disc, called “Life Is Good.” Todd is good, and so is the record. He’s not very silly though, and doesn’t know any songs about chickens, ponies, or monkeys. Oh well.
