Show #108 - Oh, Canada!

Listen to the Canadian hits, most of them never made it south of the border.

Can you name the only Canadian band to play at the Monterey Pop Festival?

"You Were On My Mind" was a big hit for the We Five in 1965, but it was originally written and recorded by a Canadian duo.

From British Columbia to Nova Scotia, enjoy 2 hours of the lost, forgotten, and classic Canadian records from the 1960s and early 1970s.

Original Airdate: June 26, 2021
