Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 573 - Ben Weatherby
Description: Through the 1960s, he was Atlantic Canada’s most prolific record producer and sound engineer. But he wore many more hats: talent scout, musician, singer, songwriter, recording artist, talent agent, businessman, and union activist. He produced gold records for Harry Hibbs, and for Dick Nolan… and he went on to record a gold record for himself. He was strong, loving, talented… a one-in-a-million man who was loved dearly by many, and who warmed the hearts of many, many people.
Today The NewFound Records Radio Hour pays tribute to Ben Weatherby.
