Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 500 - Remembering Ray Walsh
Description: One of Newfoundland and Labrador's most revered musicians past away this week.

For eleven years in the 1960s to the '70s, RAY WALSH starred on CBC TV's All Around the Circle program. Ray played piano accordion for the entire run of the show and in 2014 he helped NewFound Records celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Circle.

In honour of this talented yet humble gentleman, we now replay that anniversary special in its entirety. On the show you'll hear Ray reminisce about All Around the Circle and it's musicians, especially John White, Don Randell, and Ted Blanchard. You'll also hear music by John White, Carol Brothers, Don Randell and Ted Blanchard, and of course, Ray Walsh. Some of the tracks are from rare cassette tape recordings of the original programs.
