Magical - Memorable

Music from these artists got played on radio stations all over the United States. I mostly became aware of music from Canada while listening to CKLW radio from Windsor, Ontario. I grew up around Cleveland, Ohio and the 50,000 watt signal of the “Big 8” CKLW came roaring across Lake Erie.  It sounded like a local AM station. But, not only did CKLW play fantastic Detroit Motown soul, Grand Funk Railroad and rock/pop from other non-Canadian artists, they played a full flavored mix of music from their own country. These are just a few of my favorites. There are many others like Anne Murray, The Poppy Family, Andy Kim and great single hits by Motherload and Mashmakahn. The list can go on and on. Not only is Canadian music some of the best music ever made, the artwork on these albums is enjoyable, too.
