No Sleep Til Sudbury with Brent Jensen
About This Show
You know those songs, those really special ones? The ones that make your skin vibrate when you hear them? They may make you feel like you can throw a Dodge Dakota the length of a football field, or they may bring you to tears every time you hear them. Either way, those songs have your number. They have a certain power over you as a music fan. And we talk about those songs here.
Music tells us who we are if we really listen, and No Sleep Til Sudbury turns up the volume nice and loud.Read more »

My pal Ron MacLean comes back to the No Sleep ‘til Sudbury studios again this week to chat about ten more songs that make his skin vibrate. It’s an absolute joy to hang out with Ron - he’s funny, whip smart, super gracious, and he knows his music. In this episode Ron and I discuss his ritual for listening to music in the car, his affinity for Tom Petty, Todd Rundgren, and Carl Dixon, his Olympics exploits, the bond we share through an old French Canadian folk song, Blue Rodeo and smoked sausages, and why music is better when the mistakes are left in. Ron also opens up about Gerry Rafferty in a way I didn’t expect, but certainly appreciated. Great man, great storyteller. Great episode.
