Your vote: Ron Hynes' most requested
A special edition of the St. John's Morning Show was held Friday — the first time a show was completely dedicated to a Newfoundland and Labrador musician.
- Ron Hynes fans gather in Bannerman Park for Sonny's Dream singalong
- Ron Hynes, 'man of a thousand songs,' dead at 64
The show was a chance to mark the memory of singer-songwriter Ron Hynes, who died Thursday night in St. John's.
It was also an opportunity for fans and friends to choose the music, and to call, email or tweet show host Anthony Germain about their favourite Hynes' tune — and why it was significant to them.
They were as many and varied as the accolades that have poured in — but of the 16 tunes played in a three-hour period on Friday morning, there was definitely a top 10 — with three clear favourites: Sonny's Dream, St. John's Waltz and Atlantic Blue.
