25 Years of James Keelaghan, the Controversial Tidings of Rex Murphy, and GOLD! The GAME that Brought Canadian Patriotism Back


Here’s what you’ll find in this week’s show – and quite a week it’s been! First up special guest Canadian singer/songwriter, James Keelaghan will be talking with us about a retrospective of his last 25 years of work – AND later in the show, we move to the controversial tidings of Rex Murphy and the CBC…. Plus I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention all the Canadian Pride going on right now with our latest gold medal win for Team Canada in Men’s hockey! Canada played a brilliant game Sunday morning.  Happy to share my thoughts with Canadians – and maybe extend an olive branch to our bruised American friends…

It’s life, music talk, all grown up – and this is the Nancy Duffy Show – on InRetro Radio.

Hockey Canadian Style | We apologize, but really, it’s always been our game.

Truthfully, hockey is anyone’s game – it’s that much fun… We just happen to play it better (she said, tongue-in-cheek :).
