XHM CX - "I heard we were collecting deck chairs" (2012 April 09)

7:31am - 9:09am

We start with California sunshine pop, pass through some eclectic Canadiana and then commemorate the centenary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. It's finally warm and not super rainy here on the best coast: the West Coast (so I've been instructed).

And I spent the music part of the show filling out forms.
