A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show (CKCU 93.1 FM) placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same (2007-2012). From 2012-2014, "Rockin' the Blues from Canada" was broadcast on CHMR 93.5 FM (where it originated in 2005 as "Patchwork Blues"). This 'blog' was born in 2004 as a promotional tool for arts-related news when Geocites reclaimed its free websites.

Willie McBlind celebrates National Train Day with the release of their new CD ~
CD, Live Long Day, features a transporting collection of train themed
songs, ranging from Catler's off the rails "Slow Moving Train" to Robert
Johnson's "Love in Vain." Basic tracks for the CD were recorded in the
train station - that is, in the recording studio set in an old train
station at Bennett Studios in Englewood, NJ - and production of the CD
continued in Hoboken, NJ, at Water Music where Willie and Babe filled
the studio with their Harmonic Train Cloud that could be felt all the
way over to the Erie Lackawanna. Full steam ahead!
