Waaay back in August we sat down in a babyful living room and recorded an episode that never saw the light of day. Not for any good reason other than life got busy and we simply forgot. While it might not be so timely now as then we thought we’d put it out there anyway.
On August 20th The Tragically Hip, a rock band formed in Kingston in the 80s performed one last time, back in Kingston. For those of you who don’t know the Hip‘s lead singer, Gord Downie recently announced his diagnosis of a terminal brain cancer. In spite of his illness the band elected to perform a cross-Canada tour ending in at the K-Rock Centre in Kingston, ON. The final concert was broadcast live by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) on television and YouTube. At least 11 million screens tuned in, including ours. This week we go back to a few days after that final concert and listen to our thoughts.http://dws.cruorvult.com/Podcast/DWS-Episode-14-5-You-Are-Ahead-By-A-Century.mp3
