Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday November 17, 2012

This edition of the Saturday Edge was programmed to mark the 75th anniversary of CiTR / Rad Soc / UBC Student Radio Society. I added a few songs recorded in 1937, and the Amelia Earhart song was included because she disappeared that year. Then I added some pivotal historic recordings from the intervening years too (chosen from a personal perspective, not a universal one.
This was also the first time I tried a new App on the iPad to play the songs: Djay. It's free, but it takes a bit of tweaking. I'm still working on adjusting the cross-fades properly, so don't be too alarmed if you listen to the podcasts!
