Newfoundland Musicians and Their Roots

Colleen Power had to trick her father into buying her a Michael Jackson album.

Terry Penney was enthralled by the voices he heard coming from the kitchen radio.

Chris Kirby's life changed late one night when he stayed up to watch a concert on television.

We'll hear those stories and more his Saturday (May 18) as the Performance Hour continues its occasional series on Newfoundland musicians and their early influences.

Colleen Power, Terry Penney, and Chris Kirby join me to talk about favourite singers and memorable songs.

The playlist includes country legend Hank Williams, Francophone star Pierre Lapointe, the celebrated singer-songwriter Randy Newman, and much more.
