We pay tribute to one of the GOATS in the comedy world, the late great Norm Macdonald who happens to be a proud Canadian. Starting as a writer on shows like Rosanne, moving onto Saturday night Live where he helmed the weekend update desk. Quoted by Chevy Chase as the best anchor since him. Norm had a ruthless, uncompromising wit, a fearless approach, and was respected by his peers and the up and coming generations of comedians. Podcasts a plenty will be shining light on Norm so hopefully you love ours, share and subscribe to our Instagram: Canadafm
One of Canada's Seminole rock bands with origins from Waverly, Nova Scotia. They were on the for front of the rock scene in Canada in the 70's and have sustained.

Out of the Ottawa club scene came one of the most trailblazing and unique bands of the 2010's. Blending Dubstep, electronic and their own indigenous drums and chants to form a signature genre known as "Pow Wow Step". They have branched into television and films but they never forget their roots and the Indigenous artists that came before, often trying to collaborate and feature unknown or should be known Indigenous artists. They fight tirelessly to bring awareness to causes through their music in a way to feel like its not blaming or bitter, rather to start a dialogue and further come to an understanding. We had a ball and hope you enjoy!
