Favourites: Childhood memories

When I was less than 10 years old, my dad bought me a radio. My parents listened to classical music and CBC AM radio. The only pop or rock music I heard was on our old black and white TV with 3 channels (Do you remember Solid Gold or the Kenny Everett Video Show or The New Music?) or on this new radio. I discovered stations like CHUM-FM and CILQ-Q107 and my ears were opened. I heard songs like:

"Sausalito Summernight" by Diesel

Bruce Springsteen's "Blinded by the Light" as done by Manfred Mann

"Mama Let Him Play" by Doucette

"A Million Vacations" by Max Webster

"Surface to Air" by FM

"Something on my Mind" by Teenage Head

And since almost all these artists are Canadian, I'll say this is a great post for Canada Day.
