I've been meaning to do this since back in March 2013 when Canadian music icon Stompin' Tom Connors stomped his last stomp. So, nearly a year in gestation, this week's "The Bottomless Pit" will be a musical salute to the great nation of Canada.
For reasons that I spell out during the show, over the years I've had an affinity towards Canada and I've mostly thought of it as the sane, progressive country to the North. These days with the crack-smoking mayor, the tar sands oil production, etc., I can't help but wonder if sane and progressive aren't on hold for the time being. Nevertheless, Canada remains a fountainhead of great popular music and popular music artistes.
Find out how and why on this Saturday's "The Bottomless Pit," 10pm EST, on 90.7FM WFUV and streaming online.
You can also find The Bottomless Pit in the FUV archives for up to two weeks after broadcast.
