Laura Nyro, I sometimes fear, is in danger of becoming forgotten as an important part of the music of the 20th century…her songs are in no danger, as many of them were such big hits by other artists that they continue to receive airplay, but few of the current generation even have a clue as to the composer and her importance during her lifetime…here she is live with one of her lesser known songs, but certainly not a lesser song…
Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
