It’s our nation’s birthday on Monday, and I’ve put together a special edition of ‘Vintage Favourites‘ to mark the happy occasion. We’ll start with the biggest Canadian artists of the ‘Fabulous Fifties – and Beyond‘ during our first hour (2-3pm.), then a dozen of the most defining songs of Canada – stirring anthems, grand tales of a young land, and even a couple sincere dedications to our country by non-Canadians. From the big band era – Mart Kenney, to folk icons – Stan Rogers, the Travellers and Gordon Lightfoot, to a huge gathering of Canadian superstars singing a unique version of ‘Oh Canada‘.
I’ll wrap it all up with a birthday tribute to one of our very best – Robbie Robertson. So, please join me on Sunday afternoon for ‘The Canada Day Edition‘ of Vintage Favourites.
