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.

BENEFIT FOR MATHEW FINES @ THE RED DOG (PETERBOROUGH) - JULY 15
15! The Big Benefit for my brother, Mathew Fines, has just been posted by
the Red Dog Tavern in Peterborough, ON! Everybody wants to play to help him out, as he recovers
from surgery to fight colon cancer, and the list is growing. I wasn't
responsible for putting together the matinee (3-6:30) that will be
predominantly bluegrass and country, but those musicians are lined up
and I'll be posting them early next week. Meanwhile the evening performance (7-midnight) will consist of Washboard Hank, Cris Cuddy, Bobby Watson,
Burgess Shale, Rick and Gaillie, Apex, Meteor Empire (with Mat's son, Erik!)... Of course I will be playing with lots of friends.. the list is
huge, I'll leak more names next week... Contact me directly if you want
to help at the event....
