Canada 150

Canada 150As Canada acknowledges 150 years as a nation, many of us will likely be voluntarily fulfilling the CanCon requirements by playing music by Canadian artists throughout the day. I thought this would be a great opportunity to dig up some long forgotten, lesser known and even some recent classics or soon-to-be that have continued to shape the Canadian music scene and create a mixed and blended playlist of 150 songs by Canadian artists from the last 25 years. (1 song per artist).

Celebrate responsibly!
