The Edge On Folk is a Sing Out! Magazine Radio Partner

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

Saturday June 2, 2007

Today was the 22nd Anniversary Edition of The Edge On Folk, a Radio Partner of Sing Out! Magazine. Included were my personal choice of Song of the Year for each of the 22 years. Unfortunately I ran out of time!
They should have been as follows:
Anyhow, this is what ended up getting played. I started with music from artists coming to Canadian festivals this Summer and others coming to play concerts too. Also some new releases. Brought this iBook with me this week and broadcast pretty much all the show from it (except the first and last selections from CD, which made set up and tear down a lot easier!)
