Very excited for the airing of the 1st of 13 episodes of the radio-doc series The Toronto Sound by producers Jeff Pickering and Paul Saunders of Festival Xpress. Three Mountains was retained for audio engineering and editing and we're very enthused to be part of the series.
The Toronto Sound is retrospective look into the sociopolitical climate of the 1960's, through the lens of the R&B/rock n'roll sound that was birthed in Yorkville and the clubs on Yonge street, featuring music greats such as Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks (before they became The Band), Neil Young, Luke & the Apostles, David Clayton Thomas, Domenic Troiano, and many, many more.
The series, hosted by Grammy Award winner Rob Bowman, was recorded and filmed live at the U of T Map Room studio and will air on CIUT 89.5 FM. The first episode features blues harp legend, the late King Biscuit Boy aka Richard Newell and will air Tuesday, March 10 at 12pm.
