Loving the Doug Dietrich interview so far, I had the same start and experience with the conservatory!Love the music featured, just cannot beat a steel guitar!
thanks alot Stewart for listening to the program! I really enjoy your music, especially your song Blue Eyes In The Morning. I will have to feature you on the show soon.
Steve, great job. Loved the interview with Grant and Dan.
would love to hear more from both them.
You definitely have to do more from you cousin Dan.
Loved them all though, interesting.
Thanks a lot Roger! I appreciate your kind words about the show.
Hey Steve I have really been enjoying your interview series with Grant Heywood! Grant is a wonderful singer/songwriter/musician and a good friend. It has been great hearing him tell so many amazing stories. Some that I have heard or heard parts of and some I have been privileged to witness firsthand and many I have never heard before.
Great hearing the old Hooples songs I was in the studio and on the road with them when many of the songs were written, played live or recorded!
Grant has had an amazing career that still continues and it is so great that you are here to capture and document the highlights!
Keep up the great work Steve you are much needed!!
Thanks for your kind words Stewart! I should feature you and your music as well on Musician’s FAQ; if you would like to be on the show please let me know. Steve Todd
Love to Steve, I would be Looking forward to that thank you very much!!
Good evening Steve!
Listened to your interview with Ken Crawford. Nice Job!
Just wanted to mention in passing that I believe the recording that was aired entitled “Tell Me Why” during Ken’s interview was also performed with Alex Burton who also played rhythm guitar and sang back-up vocals, alongside with Ken.
On the track “Down by the River” performed by Ragged Glory also features Alex Burton on guitar and back up vocals, along with the very talented Fred Newton on bass guitar and back up vocals.
Have a great night! Cheers!
Thanks a lot for listening to Musician’s FAQ Maggie! I appreciate you filling me in on the other excellent musicians in the recording. I really enjoyed having Ken over to my place to play some live music, as well as listening to the previously recorded tracks. Thanks again, Steve
Hey Steve – interested in your show. I’m in a group based out of Montreal/Whitehorse/Kitchener. We just put out a record and would love to tell you about the process.
Give us a shout.
for sure! I will check out your tunes online and email you guys. Take care, Steve
James and I listened to your interview with Elaine Chalmers. What a great job you did. It is so much fun to listen to stories told by musicians.
Mary Lou and James
