Connecting Music To Sport With Blue Rodeo’s JIM CUDDY
Music and sports… both universal languages in their own right and today we try to speak them at the same time. It should be no secret by now that our interim co-host Dave Hodge has a love affair with music and after weeks and weeks of not so subtle hints we finally indulge him. Jim cuddy, lead singer of Blue Rodeo joins the show today. The two subjects could very well be a perfect pair as we talk to Jim about how and why sports and music have blended so well over the years. The three search for the parallels between the two, as John & Dave pick Jim’s brain on life as a musician and let him do the same about their dedication to sport.
