Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 622 - 1981 Part 1 of 2
Description: For this episode we roll back the clock 40 years and check out what Newfoundland-related music hit the record bins in 1981.
Here’s what we found... a rockin’ little ditty from Simani’s first LP, a rare track from Rick Barron before he became famed children’s entertainer Rik Barron, and a rockin’ cover of a Ron Hynes track by Canadian folk music icon Valdy. Plus, The Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra treats us to a ride on the Newfie Bullet! And distinguished Canadian conductor Elmer Iseler does a lovely choral arrangement of a classic Newfoundland folk song. Lots more beauts too!
Tune in and treat yourself to an awesome mix of Newfoundland vinyl oldies music that you won’t hear any place else. And we serve it all up with a generous sprinkling of history and trivia to boot!
