May 26: Sim's Studio
Ep. 464
.
Over 40 years ago SIMANI, Sim Savory and Bud Davidge, took the stage for the first time in Belleoram, Fortune Bay, NL. And today, four decades later, Simani is still a household name throughout Newfoundland. Seems like everyone, old or young, knows their songs... classics like 'The Mummers Song', which helped revive interest in a dying Newfoundland Christmas tradition. And then there's the heartfelt 'Outport People', a song which puts a human face on the controversial issue of resettlement. Another gem is 'Saltwater Cowboys' which poked fun at Newfoundlanders who returned home from working in Alberta sporting rodeo boots and Calgary Hats. The list of favourites goes on and on and on!

Today on NewFound Records, we shine a light on Simani's humble origins in outport Newfoundland. We'll see how they rocketed to fame, and how they set up their own recording studio as Bud says "in the middle of nowhere". It became known simply as Sim's Studio and it went on to record hundreds of local albums throughout its 25 year lifespan. And it's that studio and the man behind it, SIM SAVORY, that are the main focus of today's show.

This special show features some of Simani's lesser known music and includes excerpts from a recent interview with the legendary BUD DAVIDGE.
