Today’s show is dedicated to Nan Lord. Nancy was a Long time supporter of CKUA and a “regular” on Mulligan Stew.
Nan passed away recently and many of her friends and fans gathered at a service and at a celebration of life in Edmonton.
She had a long history with CKUA, which started back in the 1930s when she worked at the station and continued on after she left. Nancy, who was based in Edmonton, became a donor to CKUA in 1996 and made an annual contribution of a donated hour. Her children and relatives continue to support CKUA and one of our major donors, Mary Corbett, is Nancy’s niece.
It was Mary Corbett and Graeme Dales, the donors of the second hour today, who have always reminded me many times over the years that Nan would dance to the music I played. Did I mention Nan Lord was 102?
We should all live a life so full and rich.
So today all the tunes are for Nan..and her friends. Also for Mary and Graeme.
Would Nan dance to David Harley’s Son – that funky gem from Ridley Bent? I’m thinking that guitar groove would get her out of her chair.
You know she would love Taj Mahal, Sting, Rodney Crowell, Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, Tedeschi Trucks, BB King, Bobby Bland,
and Steven Fearing.
If Nan loved The Beatles then playing the last seven tracks on Abbey Road would make her smile.
There’s also a “mama” set
Hey mama Nathaniel Rateliff
Hey Me Hey Mama – Ray Lamontagne
Hey mama – Barney Bentall
I played some classics on today’s Stew
Joni Mitchell, You turn me on I’m a radio
Poco – Rose of Cimmaron
Eagles – Chestnut Mare
Jimi Hendrix – Wait until Tomorrow
Help Me – Harry Manx
Rhiannon Giddens – She’s got You
Enjoy – It’s all for Nancy Lord. Frankly, from this point on I’ll try and play a song for Nan on every show.
