December 2 & 8, 2012

This week, we feature one of the all-time finest and most successful singer-songwriters from Quebec, Daniel Bélanger. When A Propos was first broadcast 25 years ago, he was writing his first songs. Everything he has touched since then has turned to gold...or to double platinum! A genuinely creative artist who has been an essential part of A Propos for most of the last 25 years. You'll hear some of host Jim Corcoran's favourite translations as well as a new song from his soon to be released album.
