    what was the name of the beautiful violin solo you played at 9;20 today??????

      I think at that particular time of the show it would have been Massenet’s Meditation from Thais played by Anne-Sophie Mutter….It IS beautiful and so easy on the ears. Glad you enjoyed it…. David Bird

    Hi, what a fun show! Is there a playlist available? I’m looking to know the name of the song played at around 10:45 on Feb 18th, 2017. Thanks :-)

      The name of that piece is “Kirottu Amsterdam” by Edu Kettunen

    It is Saturday morning. We are visiting Victoria. I turned to 101.9 and there is music played from Finland. As we are from Finland (living in Kamloops) were obviously positively surprised. Thank you for this. Matti Haverila!
