Take Away The Guns

8:00am - 12:03pm

The mass murder of innocent school children in Texas really got to me this week. What a truly messed-up country we have on our southern doorstep. I have a lot of American friends and I play a lot of American music on the show. I empathize with them all. There appears to be no hope down there. The Republicans are doing their damnedest to screw up everything. So, all I can do is play music and try to lift all our spirits as we watch in despair (horror grips us as we watch you die, from Wooden Ships, comes to mind. Maybe I'll play that song next week!)
Also, this week the Edmonton Folk Music Festival announced its lineup for August (the first summer for Canadian folk festivals since 2019 is coming up! Can hardly wait...) So a bunch of artists on that esteemed bill made their presence felt on today's show. Plus a few local concert previews, including the lovely new CD by BC fiddler Jocelyn Pettit. Keep on folkin' and rollin' in the Great White North, eh?
