Eclectic Selection with Lorne - Tuesdays:  3 -5 PM

Listen Live

by Cortes Community Radio | CKTZ, 89.5 FM


Eclectic Selection

The Eclectic Collection reflects my love of music, in itís many forms. The rock and roll and blues and folk songs of my youth, jazz, classical and Celtic of later years, all make an appearance during the show. Not the top 40 hits, unless there is no option, but the live versions, the covers by other artists, the hidden gems deep in the albums that never got airplay
