Happy Spring! Well, almost. This will be the last time that I play the Winter Winds Stoke the Folk promo. But this is Canada, and even though we’re having a warm spell, it can get cold at anytime. Enjoy the warmth while we have it.
My Stoke the Folk co-host Matt Francis and I are really enjoying our time ‘travelling’ across the country to bring you regional folk. We make some very hard decisions each week. We only have one hour to work with and only have about five picks each – less if I have a cd review. But we manage. I hope you get a chance to listen.
We’re on CKDJ 107-9 every Monday night (to April 16th) at 9 pm Eastern.
