call "going to the bank." If it's really important, we will look at my old stuff or Duncan's old stuff or Ri? ta's, Occasionally we will bring back--we will do a "Remember the Miner" or "Home in My Harbour.",,, I'm circulating the work tapes now among the produc? tion committee. That's the medium list. The long list is my shopping bags full of tapes! People send in tapes from all over now. Over the last couple of years we have consciously opened it up to say, well, we should not ab? solutely limit ourselves to Cape Breton. If a song is valid for the fishery in Cape Breton as it may be for the East Coast--and whether it's by Stan Rogers or Dun? can Wells--it doesn't matter whose name comes after it. We did "Make or Break Har? bour" that way last year. And I suspect we'll have a Lennie Gallant tune in the show this year. We should do the best stuff that we can. Max was handing me CD's and tapes, Steve MacDonald was handing me tapes. (Like, "Consider this. Consider that.") Then I have my tape recorder on my fridge in my kitchen (listening to the radio).

Front row: Doris Mason, Maynard Morrison, Heather Rankin, fiddler Marcel Doucet. Middle row: Max MacDonald, Bette MacDonald, John Mollis (wind instruments). Back row: Fred Lavery (guitar), Steve Gaetz (drums), Berkley Lamey (bass). So there's Ronnie MacEachern stopping by to stay over one night on his way up north--a couple times over the last few months, in fact--kind of laying this one on me. You know, we're old friends; we played together in Buddy and the Boys, Ronnie, of course, was involved--! mean, the first words you hear, from any of the Cape Breton Boarding Kennels MODERN HEATED FACILITY FOR DOGS AND CATS • Open 12 Months • Indoor - Outdoor Dog Kennels • New Cattery Separate Building from the Dogs ' • Certification of Vaccination Required aSg|&Sk;~ 737-2281 R.R.#1, GLACE BAY, N.S.
