am650holiday.jpgIt was a special start to the New Year at the River Rock Casino show theatre as retro rockers Foreigner took to the stage with a group of very special West Vancouver kids. Collingwood School music students were granted a special audience with the “Hot Blooded” chart toppers who, judging from the crowd, are still capable of raising the roof with old and new songs from their special CD release. Helping to raise money for East Vancouver school music programs, the Collingwood kids helped sell the CDs, and then, joined Foreigner live on stage to provide the famous choral background to their famous “I Wanna Know What Love Is” top ten hit. It was a standing ovation for all involved. Also, last week, it was time to toast the start of a new radio season with the AM650 / Virgin Radio gang. Every Tuesday morning at 8:50a I get to spend some time with these great people chatting live on the air about North Shore events, so here’s a little cheers to you and all you do.
