GUEST,Mike Regenstreif Stranger Songs on CKCU (31) RE: Stranger Songs on CKCU 23 Jun 22

“The Folkways Legacy of Sam Gesser” is the theme for the next edition of Stranger Songs on CKCU. You can hear the show now, or anytime, by clicking “Listen Now” on the playlist link. Or, listen to the broadcast on Tuesday June 28, 3:30-5 pm (EDT), at 93.1 FM in Ottawa.

Between 1952 and 1964, Folkways Records released more than 100 LPs of Canadian folk music (and at least a couple of albums of Canadian poetry) produced or commissioned by Sam Gesser – all of which remain available through Smithsonian Folkways.

The songs, tunes and poem on this show are drawn from just a few of those LPs and include tracks by Alan Mills; Wade Hemsworth; Ken Peacock; Mrs. Edward Gallagher; William Paul, Martin Sack & John Knockwood; Jean Carignan; Karen James; Jacques Labrecque; Hélène Baillargeon; Madame Beavan; Leonard Cohen; O.J. Abbott; Joe Kelly; Geraldine Sullivan; Lamont Tilden; William Peaychew; The Loewen Orchestra; Herbert Sills; Anne Halderman; Stanley G. Triggs; Barry Hall; Angutnak & Matee; Paul Konoplenko-Zaporozetz; and Raasche.
