Returned home last night after four great days at Rolla, with trips to nearby Dawson Creek and a dinner at the home of Sweetwater 905 co-organizer Donna Kane and her partner Wayne Sawchuk, who provided festival-goers with a saddle packing demo.

While there are many fine musicians in the Dawson Creek region, the best known is probably Roy Forbes, who recorded under his childhood nickname ("Bim") in the 70s to the mid-80s.

Below is my favorite "Bim" song, part of the great "CanCon" wave that, had legislation not been enacted to expose such talent, never would have made it to my radio.
