My Favourite Song Part One

Both Gregg Tilston and I love music. And there is no better season to enjoy music than in the summer: At an outdoor summer festival, concert, out on the patio or even while just sitting outside in your local park.

The Tragically Hip | Gregg's Perspective

In today’s episode I speak former musician and good friend Gregg Tilston. Back on Episode #7 we chatted about Gregg’s career to date. Today, Gregg and I discuss the recently completed Man Machine Poem Tour.

Gregg has a unique perspective on Canada’s favourite band, The Tragically Hip. In the mid to late-80s Gregg was in a new wave pop band called International Boundaries (INB). The management company they signed with also had a new band from Kingston on their roster: The Tragically Hip.

Music by Afraaz Mulji.

Also features music by The Tragically Hip: Last American Exit and Ahead By A Century.
