    I really enjoyed hearing, especially because the discovery was made reveled recently.

  2. Thank you, Susan, for the nice words. Yes, the Ontario was found earlier this year and I thought it was a perfect subject for the program.

    Please keep listening. We have much more to come.

    Just email me @ swampthinghastheblues at yahoo dotca for more information(serious inquiries only! If you send spam, I will hunt you down, and deal with you!) As for being from Louisiana, I’m a blues musician born and raised in Canada! Although, I am a hill billy, with family in the Southern States!
