Who is Mr. Tunes?

The mystery of a man who walked the barren landscape that is funky soulful music in Canada for probably a decade is examined in this week’s podcast, including how was assigned this name at a posh summer camp.

But there is some other housekeeping along the way, such as a public service announcement regarding how to put the turmoil of the world in perspective, and a quick listen to one of my favourites Raymond Scott.

The podcast is now available on just about any platform, which highlights the scary reality that my frightening ideology of calm and peace in the face of events outside one’s control may spread further.
