Story Telling, Music and Paddling

Recently I had the opportunity to listen to Stuart Mclean on CBC Radio's, Vinyl Cafe - the day's theme, Canoeing.  You may or may not have heard it but I LOVE listening to Stuart share stories of Dave & Morley, their kids and the adventure's of their lives owning a second hand record store.  As I mentioned today's show's theme was Canoeing and like ALL of Stuart's shows I laugh out loud and as I am known to do, shed a tear.

You can download it for free on iTunes it's the July 6 episode where Dave attempts to celebrate his and Morley's wedding anniversary be re-enacting their honeymoon, a canoe trip in Algonquin Park.

The show also featured some fantastic canoeing/paddling themed music.

My favourite was Whitewater by Canadian musician Zaac Pick

Zaac's music can be purchased on iTunes and you can also find him on Twitter @zaacpick and Facebook

Another by Canadian music legend, Bruce Cockburn, Let Us Go Laughing is also great and is on iTunes too.
