Freedom To Play

Hi Red, I live in the East Kootenay.  I was in the Lower Mainland today and caught your show.  I am now in my hotel and have it on again.  Anyway I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it and how it brought back many memories of growing up in Victoria…

Christmas Music Is Here!

Hi,Red! Well, what else can I say but “thank you for” kicking off hour 6 of today’s show with Deck The Halls with Mannheim Steamroller from 1984. Once again it was such a joy to hear that chorus of French horns and electronic synthesizer. It brings back memories of childhood Christmases out in the rural…

Dodie Stevens, Pink Shoelaces

Hi Red, we listen to your show on to and from church on Sundays. The other weekend you played Pink Shoelaces by Dodie Stevens. We were boppin’ in the car and really enjoyed Dodie’s clear crisp voice. Since then my eight year old daughter can’t get the tune or lyrics out of her head. Of…

Remember Ian Whitcomb?

Dear Red, I’ve been wanting to get the song (and I’m not sure of the title) called ‘That’s My Song’ perhaps. It’s from the 60s (British Invasion?).  It says…” come on now baby, you know you really turn me on…and when and when you do, {passionate pants} heh, heh, heh that’s my song.” Jianni Fletcher…

Radio’s Future… on the Internet?

Red, first off may I say that I started listening to you before I knew how to operate a radio and you may very well have been my first favourite DJ, and have gone on to become a radio host and DJ myself, so you deserve a bit of credit there. The reason for my…
