Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 574 - Dick Nolan
Description: Today, we celebrate the birthday of Newfoundland & Labrador’s most prolific recording artist… a man who hit No. 2 on Canada’s country music charts in the 1960s; who had three gold records in one year; who was the first Newfoundlander to appear at The Grand Old Opry; who was one of the earliest Newfoundland recording artist to be nominated for a Juno Award; and who received Lifetime Achievement Awards from MUSIC-NL, and the East Coast Music Association.

This man blessed us with an outstanding musical legacy of folk music, traditional Newfoundland music, down-east music, and Newfoundland-Country music. But his first love was pure country music.

Dick Nolan would have been 73 years old today – February 4, 2012 and we’ll celebrate by featuring his country recordings exclusively -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY DICK NOLAN!
