Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
We broadcast a 1 hour radio show here in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand and today, in your honour, we played a Canadian special. Although it included American and Scottish performers, all the songs were about Canada.
They included JP Cormier;Long for the sea, Hank Cramer;Nova Scotia Farewell, Matapat;La traverse du Saguenay, Connie Doucet & Paul McGraw;Home once again, Trout Fishing in America;Alberta postcard, Enock Kent;The farm auction, Grit Laskin;My city, Lee Murdock;The Great Lakes song, Keith Kendrick;A shantyman's life, Margaret Christl;The picture in my mind, Tom Lewis;Rolling home (to Nova Scotia), and finally your own When we gather once more. A fitting way to end our show, I think.
Now if I find a resting place
Before I'm back this way
Or if the road be just too long
And my feet have turned to clay
If from tonight you do recall
Just one line from this song
Then even if our roads do end
This song will travel on......
Now is the time to sing with the angels Rick.
