APRIL 14: 1988 (Part 1 of 2)
Episode 458

Recent episodes of NFR have shone a light on recordings of Newfoundland music from 1958, ‘68, and ‘78. With this episode we begin the conclusion of that series by featuring Newfoundland & Labrador recordings from 1988.

In 1988, cassette tapes were beginning to replace vinyl, and NL CDs began to appear for the first time. The City of St. John’s celebrated 100 years of municipal government, and Mayor JOHN MURPHY began (and ended) his recording career. He narrated a cassette tape which marked the City’s centennial celebrations, Soiree '88. Tune in and you’ll hear the Mayor and keyboard legend RALPH WALKER on a couple of tracks from that rare tape.

Other numbers on the playlist include BUDDY WASISNAME, CON PARSONS, SIMANI, BRIAN FINN, CORMIER COUNTRY, CON PARSONS, and from The Big Land... THE FLUMMIES! (Part 1 of 2)
