This week, Roy dips into the Triple-R Radio archives for a mini-history lesson with a stack of Canadian country and folk 78s. You’ll hear sides from small Canadian labels such as Aragon, Arrow, Quality and Biltmore as well as a few RCA Victor sides. Pioneering Canadian country artists include Myrna Lorrie, the Hillbilly Jewels, Lennie Siebert & The Calgary Chuckwagon Gang, Keray Regan, Arthur Scammel, Billy Guitar, Buddy Reynolds, and so many more.
If you’re at all curious about Canadian country and folk from 1943 through to 1958, tune in on Sunday, March 6 at 1 PM Mountain to Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that continues to revolve. Approaching sixteen years and counting.
