June 5

Topic: 15 Years @ CIUT

"I began broadcasting at CIUT-FM on June 13, 1988 so this marks the 15th complete year of being allowed this privilege. During that time I've had the great fortune to meet people who had been my musician heroes and people who became good friends. Condensing all that into a one hour program wasn't easy, but here are some of the highlights reflected on this playlist, many culled from original radio broadcast tapes."

JEAN CARIGNAN: The Devil's Dream (Trad)
French Canadian Fiddle Songs: Legacy - LEG 120
Levis, QC
Producer Unknown

[This was the first piece of music played on my very first show. My good friend Señor Paul Lyon turned me onto Carignan's music in the mid-1970s and I've been a fiddle music freak ever since]

RON SEXSMITH: Time To Come Home (R Sexsmith)
Recorded live on Mariposa Folkwaves, CIUT - Sept 5, 1988
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[Ron was the first person to perform live on my program - he did 2 songs. He was newly arrived in Toronto from St. Catherines, across the lake and was determined to make it as a successful singer-songwriter. I'm not sure if he ever commercially recorded this particular song]

WILLIE P BENNETT: Stardust (H Carmichael)
Recorded live at St. Vladimir's Church, Toronto  - May 25, 1990
Produced for CIUT by db Hawkes

[CIUT's Monday evening guys ganged up and staged a 5 hour radio event / fundraiser for the station. I, together with Al "The Twistin' Postman" Baekland and Rick Fielding of Acoustic Workshop, booked the who's who of the Toronto folk music scene to perform, sans commercials, from the basement of a Ukrainian church. The show featured Al Cromwell, Fred Robertson, Stephen Byers, It Ain't Pretty, Laine Von Hookstraaten's band Steel Wool, Cate Friesen, The Celtic Gales (Mad Love), Breen Derg Muc, Norm Hacking, The Old Peculiar Jug Band, The Cajun Ramblers, Pat Temple and Mose Scarlett. But Willie P was awesome that night!]

BARNEY McCAFFREY: Heather of the Wilno Hills (B McCaffrey)
Recorded live on the Great North Wind - Oct 19, 1992
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[In 1989 I changed the name of the program to The Great North Wind, utilizing the Grievous Angel's song as its theme until June 17, 1999. I met Barney at Harbourfront Centre during an accordion festival. In sound check he began playing The Lake Dore Waltz by Mac Beattie so I knew right then and there that we were destined to become good friends. He lives in Wilno, ON, on a farm he homesteaded in the mid-1960s to escape the crazy scene south of the border. Little has changed on his farm over the years, and little has changed south of the border. He writes great songs about people from the Madawaska Valley. This one is about the post-mistress of Wilno, a Scottish bride who married a Polish-Canadian soldier]

GRAHAM TOWNSEND: Waltzing Through The Leaves (G Townsend)
The Inimitable: Banff - SBS 5239
Toronto, ON
Producer Unknown - 1964

[Graham became a really good friend and would often listen in on the program from his home up in Barrie. Sometimes I would play an old piece of vinyl and wonder, over the air, whatever happened to the artist. 9 times out of 10 Graham would call up to set the score straight. He also appeared a half dozen times as my guest, bringing his revered fiddle along with him. His greatest joy was when we did a show about George Wade & His Cornhuskers, a fiddle band that toured the country in the 1930s which featured a teenaged Jean Carignan. An internet listener from Alberta recently requested this tune]

It's Stompin' Tom Time:

STOMPIN' TOM: The Birth of the New Dragon Mine Dragon Mine (T C Connors / Murdo Martin / Gary Quinn)
45 Single: CKGB Radio label
Tom Connors and guitar
Balinifad, ON
Producer Unknown - Recorded in Toronto for CKGB Radio, Timmins, 1965

[Tom Connors was living and performing in the heart of the Porcupine, Timmins, Northern Ontario - my home town - in 1965. He had a local radio show and recorded some 45s in Toronto to sell. This was one of them. They are incredibly rare these days. Of all the sides he recorded for CKGB, this one is perhaps the most unique. The Dragon Mine soon became the Kidd Creek Mine and Tom stopped singing it]

BRUCE COCKBURN: The Last Night of the World (B Cockburn)
Recorded live on the Great North Wind - March 9, 1998
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[This was my last Monday broadcast - The Great North Wind moved to Thursday - and I was thrilled to have Bruce for a complete hour. It was great! It was way out there! He had his resonator guitar and sang a couple of songs. At the time, this song had not been recorded and Bruce claimed to have only played it in public a couple of times. The station was deluged with requests for copies of the program but alas, none were made with the exception of this one]

CHRIS HADFIELD: The Farm Auction (C Hadfield)
Dave Hadfield - Gerry Levine
Recorded live on the Great North Wind - April 2, 1998
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[After Bruce I didn't think I'd leave the planet for a while but when Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield - accompanied by a Canadian Space Agency official - came down, I was walking in space. Chris had been the first known astronaut to play a guitar in space! With him was his brother, Dave Hadfield, and fiddler friend Gerry Levine, both from Barrie. This was one of the coolest radio experiences I've ever had! We spoke about 2001: A Space Odyssey, the earth's atmosphere, and all sorts of wonderful things]

DAISY DeBOLT: Lenny's Song (D DeBolt)
George Koller - Michel Joseph - Margaret Stowe
Recorded live at the Sugar Camp - Jan 9, 2003
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[One of the most powerful live-on-air performances I've experienced was when Bob Derkach and Daisy came to the Camp in 2000. But when she recently brought this gang in with her I was 8 miles high. Honestly, it was an electrifying experience, camptured (I'm sic) on minidisk with amazing clarity, an ode to guitar god Lenny Breau. Pies were levitating, the wood stove warming, and Daisy... what can I say about her? What can anyone say about the colour of water, the morning scent of fresh flowers, loons floating over an evening river...?'

STEVE FRUITMAN w/ MAINLINE: The Northern Ontario Blues (M Beattie)
Mike McKenna - Michael Harrison - Tony Nolasco - Ted Purdy
Recorded live on the Great North Wind - June 10, 1999
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[When I was a teenager the McKenna-Mendelson Mainline were Toronto's - no, Canada's - answer to Frank Zappa, The Yardbirds, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. I'd go to their shows. I bought all their records. I smoked hash and listened to their hard driving sounds: Joe's stompin' foot, McKenna's searing melodious guitar, Nolasco's bashing drums and Harrison's anchored bass. They appeared - for just the second time in 25 years - on my second last Great North Wind show. What a blast to sing a Mac Beattie song with them as my back up band! The kind rewards of doing radio]

IVAN HICKS & THE MARITIME EXPRESS: New Brunswick Hornpipe (E Mitton) / Blue Violet Breakdown (E Mitton) / Earl Mitton's Breakdown (D Messer)
Recorded live at the Sugar Camp - June 1, 2000
Produced by Steve Fruitman

[In October, 1999 - after 4 months of sitting on the sidelines - I was back with a brand new show. The Sugar Camp was where I really wanted to be in radioland. It takes a long time to realize who you where you are and what you should be doing there. I wanted to spin music and have hootenannies around the old box stove. So when the Ivan Hicks Caravan rolled down St. George Street and parked in the lot behind the station, listeners were unprepared for one of the best nights of radio since Earl Heywood's days up at CKNX. My job was was the easiest - just sit there and relax and let them rip. Country songs and fiddle tunes with whoopin' and hollering like nobody's business. This is what radio was invented for]

STEVEDORE STEVE FOOTE: Log Drive On The Pickerel (S Foote)
Hard Workin' Men: Boot Records - BOS - 7102
Saint John, NB
Produced by Jury Krytiuk - 1971

[I just returned from Saint John, New Brunswick, from Stevedore's kitchen with a bottle of vodka, passing the guitar back and forth, singing them songs. Steve Foote has become a really close friend! After listening to his recorded music for years I decided to go down to NB and look him up. Little did I realize what this would lead to. I did a special on him in 1989 and persuaded the then reclusive Stompin' Tom to give us a live telephone interview about his old pal. This song is one of my favourites, about the mighty Pickerel River, Canadian through and through]

LA BOTTINE SOURIANTE: L'Acadienne (Trad)
Jusqu'aux p'tites heures: Mille-Pattes - MP 2037
Regent Archambault - Michel Bordeleau - Lafleche Dore - Robert Ellis - Denis Frechette - Jean Frechette - Yves Lambert - Martin Racine - Andre Verreault
Joliette, QC
Produced by Benjamin Kanters et La Bottine Souriante - 1991

[I just couldn't believe it! A four piece trad band from Quebec with enough energy to blow the roof off. Then they expanded into a 6 piece and really went mad. And then they added a four part horn section and really took off. This band could give Chris Hadfield a few tips about G Forces at Max Q. I've always played their music on my programs and even got to MC one of their first big Toronto shows which CIUT presented. They are indeed the best band in the world! At least, that's what my listeners think]

CPR Time
CPR In Bala: GNW 1990

I could have played all night! But that's enough. I thank my stars for the many wonderful experiences I've had broadcasting on CIUT over the years. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly remain with me in the most beautiful way. Thank goodness the Ugly were few and far between. Listening back to some of the ancient shows still makes me sometimes cringe. Sometimes laugh. Sometimes shake my head thinking: 'That was fuckin' great!' More often then not. See you next week.

For the past 11 years October has lived downtown Toronto in a house formerly occupied by Kelly McGowan and Don Ross and their family. Kelly sadly left this earth two years ago but her energy is still very much with us. I can remember being invited by Don to a Christmas party in that house which, oddly enough, I now deliver the mail to when I'm not at the Camp. Yes, I am October's mailman! And sometimes she invites me in for a cup of tea. We sit in the same kitchen that Don and Kelly used to sit in. This, then, is October's ode to Kelly's Kitchen.

Up here at the Camp we have Red-Green type of neighbours. But unlike Red's make believe world of Possum Lake, the Camp is for real. We've got Ed Hicks up here. He loves to look for an opening and jab you in the ribs. Perhaps with a pointed knife in a bloodless poke. He drinks spiced rum and peers over the top rim of his glasses, grey hair brushed back like an unkempt Dean Martin. Then he smiles and you know you're in for it. So one day he stares at Cary: "Hey," he says. We're all waiting for Ed to do his magic. "What do you do in Simcoe, Cary? I can see you walking down a hot dusty road with a net on your shoulder on your way to catch tadpoles."

Jim McHarg's Metro Stompers: RCA Victor - CTLS - 1083
Eric Nelson - Jim Galloway - Ron Simpson - Bernie Nathan
Toronto, ON
Producer not listed - circa 1966

Jim McHarg passed away this week, leaving me with the realization that we've lost a few good men in the last little while and it is time to recognize them. Jim immigrated to Canada from his native Glasgow, Scotland in 1957 and quickly emerged himself in the jazz scene. A double bass player, he formed the Metro Stompers in 1965 with Jim Galloway. The Stompers would be the last band that legendary blues and jazz player Lonnie Johnson would perform and record with. He eventually founded the Molson Jazz Fesitval in 1979. He was 76 years old.

Kid Bastien's Happy Pals: Sunny South Records - 104

Toronto, On
Produced by Colin Bray & Steve Barr - 1984

Kid Bastien and his Happy Pals held court at Grossman's Tavern in Toronto for over 33 years of Saturday afternoon jazz. The only time he didn't show up for the gig last February - they found him dead in his apartment, his trusted trumpet ready to blow. The Happy pals still perform in Bastien's honour. Like MaHarg, Bastien was born in UK and came to Canada in the 1960s. He was 65.

Grossman's Live! 2: Spadina Beat Records - WRC1 - 5993

Hock never made it to the New Years Eve gig for the new millennium. Co-founder of the Downchild Blues Band with his brother Donny, he wove his vocals through and around the Toronto blues scene. And he was special. He was found in his apartment with the TV on at the age of 51.

Richard Newell a.k.a. King Biscuit Boy - Larry Atamanuik - John Gibard - Roly Greenway - Kelly J - Rheal Lanthier - John R
Hamilton, ON
Frank Davies for Love Productions - 1970

Richard was a blues harmonica player who ripped through the air like his hero, Sonny Boy Williamson. He was so good that the great Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins - who's band he was in in the mid-1960s - christened him King Biscuit Boy after the radio show from Helena, Arkansas, that featured Sonny Boy. After Hawkins fired his entire band, they huddled around Richard and released Official Music. It was named the best damned blues album in Canada that year. He was found dead in his Hamilton apartment last January - age 58.

THE NATIONALS: Lay It On (B Cober / P McNamara)
Double Slide: Chester - 3
Brian Cober - Paul McNamara - Ian Green
Toronto, ON
Produced by Ben Richardson & Alec Fraser - 2001

Brian Cober is alive and well and living in Kensington Market, Toronto. He performs with The Nationals at Grossman's Tavern every Sunday night (377 Spadina Ave). Some years back he developed a new way to play slide guitar. Being restricted to the single bar chording of open tuning, he figured out a way in which to play just about any note or chord he wanted by wearing a smaller slide on his thumb, a normal one on his middle finger, and playing over the top of the guitar. He demonstrated his technique live on the air tonight on an acoustic guitar then played this song:

BRIAN COBER: Don't Know What You Got (B Cober)
Live at the Sugar Camp

Brian also brought in some LPs that he thought might interest us.

The Canadian Country music scene just lost a very important ingredient this past week: Gary Buck, the founder of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame at the Calgary Stampede Grounds succumbed to cancer. He was in his mid-60s. Although he was not an active performer for many years, he started out as a bass player in a Sault Ste Marie high school band. He moved into publishing and producing in the 1970s and founded the Hall of Fame in 1989 in Kitchener, ON.

Topic: She Don't Speak English
(& I Don't Speak French)
Phone Guest: Dana Whittle

he snow was swirling around her home while her husband, Claude Mete, was in Montreal catching a young folk act perform. Since Dana immigrated from the US a decade ago, she has been heavily involved in music as musician (Dent-de-lion), web designer, graphic artist and CD cover designer (Vizou), overseeing their label (Minuit-dans-la-cuisine) as well as translating liner notes from French to English. She has also been involved in the Canadian arm of the North American Folk Alliance - Rendezvous Folk! This year the folk meet will be in Montreal later this month and both Claude and Dana are heavily involved with this. All this while Claude continues performing (Reve du diable, Josephine, Dent-de-lion, Ni Sarpe Ni Branche etc.) and children to raise. But quite obviously it is work that they love.
