Saturday Edge Episode June 20, 2020


8:02am - 12:02pm

To mark Juneteenth I played a lot of new music from Africa, and quite a few songs about slavery and its effects. Part of my motivation was Marc Fournier - CBC DJ - posting a photo of empty shelves saying this is how many records would be in his collection if he took out all the black artists and all the musicians inspired by black artists! I finished the show with some Celtic music, a few songs for Father's Day, and a bit of a Midsummer flourish.
