The radio show just celebrated the 6th anniversary. Thanks to everyone who has ever helped out
over the years. Those who sent music, told me about an artist, musicians who I’ve interviewed,
people at CFRC. Over 6 years a list would be long and I’d forget people so I will say thanks to
The first episode was May 19, 2007. Which is online, if you want to listen to how a show
“The very first episode from May 2007. Little rough sounding but that’s to be expected for my
first one. Music of Great Big Sea, Hey Rosetta, Brothers in Stereo, Colleen Power, Down with the
Butterfly, The Human Soundtrack, Shanneyganock, The Masterless Men, GlamourPuss and Ross
The first 4 months of the show the show after mine was always taped ahead of time. So for the
first week, I thought of something radio related to play at the end of the show.”
That last thing I mention is the closing theme from the sitcom, WKRP. Which if you didn’t know contains
no real lyrics. It is just gibberish. Felt like a good way to end a first show.
Next 2 links are from the 6th anniversary edition of Salt Water Music on May 24th. I grabbed music from
people I have interviewed over that time.
“6th Anniversary show kicks off with about 25 minutes of new music. Trio from Nova Scotia, Dark
for Dark. Followed by songs from Charlie A’Court’s album ‘Triumph and Disaster’ and Ross Neilsen
Band’s new CD ‘Resurrection’.
More new music continues with some “folktronica” from Joshua Van Tassel.
Then onto the plan I had for the anniversary program. Songs from musicians I’ve interviewed
over the 6 years of the show.
Rest of this hour has selections from David Myles, Air Traffic Control, Buddy Wasisname and the
Other Fellers, Melanie Samson, Sora and Andrea Wittgens”
“2nd hour of the anniversary show is all artists/bands who I’ve had a chance to chat with over
the 6 years of the program.
Teresa Ennis, Madison Violet, Ryan’s Fancy, Irish Descendants, Grand Theft Bus, Allison Crowe,
Ian Sherwood, Ian Foster and Hey Rosetta!. Before that last song you can hear a clip of my chat
with Tim Baker. Mention a song I can play but you won’t hear on commercial radio.”
Also here is a link with all the ‘Salt Water Music’ episodes on the Internet Archive. Over 160 hours.
It adds up over the years.
Again thanks to everyone over the last 6 years.
