Winter is fast approaching – we’ve already had some ice and snow – and the calendar makes it official next week. So, please join me for some wonderful winter songs, by legendary artists from Paul Simon and Tony Bennett to Dino, Englebert and a whole bunch of Canadians – who ought to know more about winter than anyone else! Canadians like Gord, Randy, Joni and Bruce. This is a great time to get into the winter spirit, with Christmas approaching – and before we get tired of it all by early January – right ? Well, perhaps that’s just me.
There’s something else ‘in the air’ – like the days of the year, soon running out – so too it seems, some of our favourite artists are running out of time and energy. So many announced their retirement from touring this past year, it feels to me like ‘the twilight of the gods’, the end-of-an-era. I’ll salute some of these ‘rock’n’roll road warriors’ this Sunday as well.
Please join me for ‘The Winter Edition’ of ‘Vintage Favourites’, between 2:00 and 4:30 this Sunday – on Zoomer Radio.
