The compilation is a partnership between Regina Community Radio and Saskatoon Community Radio, and a fundraiser for both stations. CJTR and CFCR are grateful that the music community has generously stepped forward with their energy and talent in support of Saskatchewan-made Community Radio during these difficult times.
The album features a wide array of genres, from rock to folk; from soul-pop to country. Cover songs include artists covering their contemporaries (Megan Nash & The Best Of Intentions covering Rah Rah; The Sex Geckos covering The Switching Yard), artists crossing genres (Ariel & Sean making Andy Shauf’s “Early To The Party” into a soul-pop toe-tapper; MechaDroid putting a fuzzy alt-rock spin on Rosie & The Riveters’ “I Believe You”), and even a son covering his dad’s song from the late 1960s (Corey Dahlen covering Rey Dahlen’s “Democracy”).
“This project has really solidified the relationship between CJTR and CFCR. We’re so happy to be part of it, and excited to share it with everyone.” – CFCR Program Director Jay Allen.
“We feel so grateful for the resource-sharing and support we’ve exchanged between the two stations, as well as the generosity of the musicians and bands involved with this fun project.” – CJTR Executive Director Amber Goodwyn
After CJTR launched the first volume of the Saskatchewan cover songs compilation in 2016 to great success, CFCR joined in to further broaden the scope of the audience & bands involved. The project sought submissions in early 2018 and received almost 50 applications from a wide range of Saskatchewan musicians, which were whittled down to 16 selections. Because of various constraints due to the COVID pandemic, the 2020 compilation features 10 bands who frequently collaborate with the two stations. In more stable times, the two stations plan to return to a submissions-based intake process.
