Good radio knows no bounds, and our good neigbors to the north had an abundance of great radio stations with awesome talent.

Back in ’72, one can really get a feel for how radio worked, and still works in Canada – hits you won’t remember (for U.S. listeners) because they were Canadian artists, of which the CTRC, Canada’s radio regulating body similar to the U.S. FCC, mandated a certain percentage of. It actually works well for Canadian groups who otherwise would never even get a shot on American radio or labels. I digress.

This recording sounds like someone simply put a mic in front of a radio speaker. Didn’t we all do that at one time or another before we knew any better??
