Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 594 - Roy Payne: Songs he wrote but didn't record
Description: Trout River’s Roy Payne is one of Newfoundland & Labrador’s most prolific songwriters. You may know Roy for his more popular compositions such as The Little Boats of Newfoundland, There’s No Price Tags on the Doors of Newfoundland, I Wouldn’t Trade A Million Dollars for A Single Maple Leaf, Outlaw Heroes, and The Ol’ Fishing Hole.

His songs have been covered by luminaries like George Hamilton IV, Tommy Hunter, Laura Repo, Stompin’ Tom Connors, and Dick Nolan. A multitude of local artists have also recorded Roy’s numbers, and Payne himself has recorded most of his material on his multitude of singles, Lps, and CDs.

But there is also a rather small volume of Roy Payne’s compositions which Roy didn’t record himself, but other artists did. And it’s that collection of rather obscure material that New Found Records focuses on for this week’s episode.
