Merry Christmas

This year it's off to the "just North of Toronto" town of Newmarket to celebrate Christmas with the ever extending Jones family. Even being a Jones myself it's hard to keep up with them all.

Re: Classic Lightfoot Live - radio interview

Very nice interview.
John has so much to share and it's clear Lee showed his professionalism by giving him a "wide berth."

Re: Glen campbell - r.i.p.

Glen was here in Toronto during the sixties and he was a friend of Gord's. He wasn't very well known so Gord helped him out with gigs etc. He sure does add a sparkle to Gord's songs....
