In this episode of Musicians of the Midnight Sun, Pat Braden speaks to Randy Demmon. Originally from Salmon Arm, B.C., Demmon started playing in rock bands when he was 11 years old. A chance meeting with the Northwest Territories' director of Education in the late 1960s led Demmon to teach music in Yellowknife. "By the end of the first summer, I was hooked on Yellowknife," says Demmon.
