If there's no audience, there just ain't no show

More of your suggestions for the CMHF... it's a bit of an abbreviated program today because World Report is running a bit longer than usual..

Liz in Sydney suggested David Essig (as did a few others), Simon in North Vancouver would definitely put Chilliwack in there, and Christine wants Jim Byrnes to be included.

And we'll go out with Roland in Courtenay's suggestion of Eddie Schwartz - he's more known for his songwriting and producing than his own recordings... like a song that Rita Coolidge got a big hit with in the early 90s that Eddie wrote.

Have a good weekend!

Pioneering banjoist Earl Scruggs died yesterday at age of 88, and I'm starting with a very famous tune that he recorded when he was with Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys.

Then it's your suggestions for Canadian Music Hall of Fame: Carolyn in Abbortsford suggested Ginette Reno, Des in Sooke suggested Valdy, and Doug in Powell River had a list of names, but his #1 nomination was Art Bergman.

Stirring the Canadian pot

It's raining out there, pretty much everywhere in BC this morning... or it will be.  And so a lovely piece for the rain by Vladimir Cosma from the Diva soundtrack.

And as you might guess from the post at the top, for the rest of the week on Earlier, I'm playing suggestions for the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, because there's lots of artists and groups that should be there.

It starts with Norman in Prince George's call for Stan Rogers to be included, and I'm adding a few of my own with Susan Jacks and Jane Siberry (women are very under-represented).

Send me yours!
