Hanlon Creek Downstream In The Spring (Photo: Bob Gordon)

It was another busy Royal City Rag on September 26. Bob Gordon joined us again in the first hour to provide an update on the proposed Hanlon Creek Business Park development. This week’s segment focused around a great piece that Bob wrote for the Guelph Mercury questionning some of the written statements of Mayor Karen Farbridge. Although there is no doubt that Mayor Farbridge has (as Bob puts it) impeccable environmental credentials there is quite a difference between her approach to environmental issues as director as OPIRG, where she served for 10 years and now, as a two term Mayor of Guelph. One wonders what has changed?

This is a great radio segment. I’d definitely suggest you take a listen.

Although I’d like to encourage you to listen to the whole show (it’s always great fun) we’ve excerpted it as a taster:

Later, in the first hour, we talked to David Estill about Guelph’s new bridge club. It was great to hear David’s enthusiasm for the game. I’m betting it will be the next big thing. Check out the club if you get a chance.

In the second hour we were pleased to welcome Sam Turton and Jane Lewis back to the show to talk about their All Together Now music for everyone workshop series. Sam and Jane are bringing roots music master extraordinaire, Ken Whiteley to Guelph on October 4 for a gospel show at Three Willows church. This is a show with a difference as it features a one-day gospel choir, trained during an afternoon workshop with Ken. Those of you who have joined Ken for gospel hour at the Hillside Festival will know what an amazing experience his shows are.

Ken joined us on the phone from Quebec where he is currently on tour during the show. Sam and Jane also played live for us in the studio.
