Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 621 - 1971
Description: We roll back the clock 50 years and check out what Newfoundland-related music first hit the record bins in 1971.

Here’s what’s on the turntable... a wonderful track by The Sanderlings, a talented septet of St. John’s youths that once performed on national TV... an old Beatles ditty that Ward 6 recorded at a high school in Kelligrews... a spirited country song by Norma Gale who’s stage name was suggested by Loretta Lynn... a stunning rendition of Scorn Not His Simplicity by Ralph O’Brien and The Sons of Erin, plus Christine Doyle sings a version of The Harbour Grace Excursion that sounds completely different than the rendition that Great Big Sea later popularized as Excursion around the Bay. And there’s loads more super Newfoundland musical obscurities cued up and ready to spin too!

Tune in and treat yourself to an awesome mix of music that you won’t hear any place else. And it’s all seasoned with a generous sprinkling of history and trivia to boot!
