Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 578 - Reg Watkins
Description: Today, a musical biography of the man that some think of as Newfoundland’s Stompin’ Tom Connors. That man is Twillingate’s multi-talented, outside-the-box thinker, Reg Watkins.

Many of Reg’s self-penned songs tell stories about the people and places he’s experienced in his travels throughout Canada. We’ll sample several of those musical tales in this program. And we’ll tell you about the attempt he and his musical colleague Loretta Cormier made to crack the American country music market
