We start off with a track by conductor, pianist and composer Bramwell Tovey, who is receiving an honorary degree from UBC later this year..
...as is Buffy Sainte-Marie, and I had a call from Hope last December that the next time I play a tune from Red Box's The Circle and the Square, it should be a song Buffy wrote.
A post-Valentine's Day tune from Chloe Hall from Australia also on the show, as well as Catherine McKinnon, who had the top album on the contemporary charts for Flag Day in 1965.
And it's also the birthday of Henry E. Steinway, maker of fab pianos... and to help celebrate, Crazy Otto.
