Description: For this episode, we dive deep into our vinyl vaults and blow the dust off what may be Newfoundland’s first commercial record. It’s a century old breakable 78 rpm beauty with recordings of three provincial anthems. And we spin them all!
You’ll also hear a bunch of recordings that are celebrating their 60th birthday this year. On the platter are DICK NOLAN, CHAD WILLIS & THE BEACHSTONES, and the star of The Rifleman, CHUCK CONNORS! What’s his connection to Newfoundland?
And there’s a lot more obscure oldies that you’re unlikely to hear elsewhere as well.
