    You said: 33 and a half (in reference to the RPM of an LP.) It’s actually 33 and a third RPM.

    Hey guys–burn a copy for posterity of the Victoria retrospective show featuring Glen Parfitt and the Motifs alumni!! It’s one for the ages.

    My wife (who club hopped in late ’60s Victoria) loved it too. We’re both trying to imagine Valdy playing bass in a rock band. We thought he’d always been a folkie.

    • Alex Solunac says: February 6, 2017

      Hey Richard,

      I’m going to ask Glenn if he can line up some other Victoria bands from the 60′s to come up on the show in the next few weeks. I will be letting folks know on the Facebook page for Garage grooves. We should have you and your wife up on the show to let folks know what the Victoria 60′s scene was like… :-) Thanks!!! Alex

  14. Stephen MacLeod says: December 31, 2017

    Great show,love the oddball and obscure psych rock. Should play Hold On-Sharon Tandy on ATCO/ Atlantic Records as well as some Staccatos.

  15. Stephen MacLeod says: January 26, 2018

    What was the song and artist played after The Guess Who-This Time Long Ago might be called Say You Love Me. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.
