The Ongoing History of New Music Encore Presentation: The Tragically Hip

It’s Canada Day weekend, so we thought it appropriate that we pull something properly Canadian from the archives. And after sorting through everything, we grabbed the track-by-track examination of the Tragically Hip’s Fully Completely. Hey, more than one in every 30 Canadians own this record, so it seems like the right things to do.

I was given full access to the Hip’s archives for this one, so we go pretty deep into this record. Naturally, the playlist for the show looks like this:

Courage (for Hugh MacLennan)
Looking for a Place to Happen
At the Hundredth Meridian
Pigeon Camera
Locked in the Trunk of a Car
We’ll Go, Too
Fully Completely
Fifty Mission Cap
Wheat Kings
The Wherewithal

Playlistist Eric Wilhite puts it all together.

Don’t forget that you can get the podcast version of this podcast through iTunes or wherever you get your on-demand audio.

The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:

We’re still looking for more affiliates in Calgary, Kamloops, Kelowna, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor,  Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.
