Peter Boyer from Same Latitude as Rome will be joining us on Folk Roots Radio Overtime on CFRU 93.3fm on Saturday May 9 from 10-11 a.m. to play tracks and chat about his new album, the JK Gulley produced ‘Early Days’. And, guess what, we also have a couple of copies of the album to give away. On this week’s Folk Roots Radio (Episode 193) we’re playing Peter’s song ‘Union Man’ about the birth of the Canadian labour movement. All you need to do is tell us the name of one of the two big labour strikes in Canada that were pivotal to the development of organized labour in Canada, and were mentioned in that song. Easy. Send us an e-mail or contact us via the website and we’ll be mailing that CD right off to you!
