Hello there everyone.
Welcome to Episode 31 of Testing For Echo on CHSR 97.9 in Fredericton and around the world. I’m your host Tim Scammell.
Recently, we lost a world-renowned and universally respected Canadian superstar. His influence was everywhere and his loss has shaken the music world to its core.
I always knew him and heard him on the radio, but it wasn’t until I met my stepfather who introduced me to all of Gordon Lightfoot’s work did that I became a megafan.
When I lost my stepfather I had a hard time listening to Gordon for a while, but I did.
So, this isn’t really Prog Rock, but it’s Canada. Gordon wrote The Canadian Railroad Trilogy in 1967 for Canada’s Centennial year.
It’s wonderful and I’m playing it.
There is certainly a lot of Canadianity on this episode. It’s packed!
There’s hard Canadian and soft Canadian. Something for everyone.
