One thought on “The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 798: A Remembrance of Gord Downie, Part 1

  • Hello Alan,

    Love the ongoing history and just finished Gord Downie part 1. I know this might be a little nit picky but but I have 2 little things.
    1. Gord was from Amherstview not Amherstvill
    And 2. The Ernestown jets the team he played for was and still are from Amherstview as well. Amherstview was once in a township called Ernestown hens the Ernestown part yes there is a small village near call Ernestown. Boy I said Ernestown a lot there sorry about that.
    I know this might be a small thing but as a kid who grew up there in the 80s and 90s and has come back as and adult Gord, the hip and home mean a lot to me.

    Thank you for you time.

    David Carson
