Ever since I was a little boy, growing up on ten acres with my mom, dad and sister, some goats, chickens, and my dog Robin, I always listened to CBC. My sister Linden and I would dance around the house to Tchaikovsky, the Brandenburg concertos, you name it. When I was young I figured it was the only station on the radio. In the car I would get to know so many pieces that I grew up to love, and now play, from listening to CBC. It is such an incredible journey to go from hearing the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra on the radio, to not only performing and touring with them around the world - but also recording with them! One of the pieces that I will play for you on this show is one that I recorded with Tafelmusik. Some of you might not even realize yet why I'm talking to you about CBC Radio, well, a few weeks ago I was approached to host a show called "This Is My Music". This show airs every Saturday morning at 10:00 AM on CBC Radio 2. So many of my colleagues, mentors, and heroes have hosted this show, and I am so excited to host this one tomorrow morning, December 10th, at 10:00 AM! I wanted to let as many of you know in advance as I could because, even though it is pre-recorded, I haven't even listened to it yet, so it will be an exciting moment. For those of you that are far away, and in other Countries, I believe you can stream it, or even tune in on Satelite radio. Some other people and music that I talk about and share with you are a few new tracks from my latest Album "Fire & Grace with WIlliam Coulter, also one of my favourite tracks from my band ACRONYM, an incredible piece of classical rock and roll performed by Mark Fewer, and so much more!! I'm so excited to share these couple of hours on the radio waves with all of you. Thank you so much for being on this journey with me!!!
