In 2012, Toronto-based musician and author Jaimie Vernon completed a remarkable self-directed task - the publishing of his book The Canadian Encyclopedia of Pop Music. The Encyclopedia, which took 13 years to compile, contains over 2300 solo artist and band biographies and discographies spanning the period 1949 to present. Jaimie phones through today to speak about how his desire to provide recognition for deserving independent artists, led him to dedicate himself to such a mammoth and worthwhile task. And tune in to hear Jaimie's expertly picked Cancon requests...A special thanks to Peter Foldy for introducing Jaimie to the show!
