A couple of days ago, I posted that it was my birthday and could people please buy a copy of my album or stream a few of my tunes on Spotify. And today, I see there’s a bump in my numbers. Not a huge bump mind you, but you know… discernible. So, there IS love out there if you can find a way to tap it. Too bad I can only do the birthday thing once a year. 🙂
Hello Everyone. This Sunday’s Playlist is a link to my album, Mystic Journeys. Featuring 11 original songs including These Days, Don’t You Ever Wonder Why and Away Yo Go Flying, the album is available right now on all major streaming and distribution platforms. Please check it out:
Hi guys. It’s Remembrance Day in Canada, and I’d like to share this link to a Veteran Affairs tribute to Smokey Smith, my second cousin. Smokey is the only Canadian private ever to receive the Victoria Cross. He got it for single-handedly fighting off three German Panther tanks and about 10 infantry during the Italian Campaign in the Second World War.
So… if you happen to share a drink today in honour of the troops, as is the custom here in Canada, I don’t think Smokey will mind if you hoist one to him.
Hi guys. Time for another Sunday Playlist. There’s only one song on this week’s list. It’s a song that’s been trending for me for the last week or so. No idea why. It’s called Don’t You Ever Wonder Why? and it’s kind of a shout-out to those among us who suffer from episodes of depression. Hope you like it.
Hi guys. My playlist this Sunday features 20 sad songs guaranteed to pluck a heart string or two. There are three Canadians included on this list. See if you can figure out who they are and put them in the comments. Ciao for now…
Hi guys. I’ll be back performing at the Gibsons Public Market this Saturday, Halloween day, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Please swing by for some tunes and a beverage at Emelles. For the out-of-towners on this list, please check out my recorded music at Spotify or my TubeTube Channnel.
This Sunday’s Playlist is all about me. Truth be told, it’s always all about me. It includes every song I have recorded to to date, all wrapped up in one tidy little package called This is Donald Glenn. Please play all 11 tunes. I get 0.36 of a penny for each stream, but it’s an American penny, so…
I cast my vote for a Green candidate for the first time ever in the BC provincial election last week. I made a nice neat “X” in the box beside Kim Darwin’s name, stuffed it in the ballot box and walked away happy with my vote for the first time in years.
I have thought about voting Green many times before because I believe climate change is the most important issue of our generation, and it will continue to be for generations to come. But each time, I managed to talk myself out of it. It was better to be strategic I told myself, even though the candidates I voted for were often less representative of my views. In the last federal election, I voted Liberal because I wanted to protect the carbon tax from the Conservatives who had vowed to axe it. The problem with voting strategically though, is that main-stream parties are not taking us where we need to go.
Kim Darwin looks like an outstanding candidate to me, and she is well deserving of my vote; however, I know her chances of winning are not great. People hesitate to vote Green because people don’t vote Green. It’s a chicken and egg problem that maintains the status quo and keeps us from making any real progress. If we want real change, we have to embrace change ourselves.
It’s grey and rainy where I live, so I’m sending out my sad songs playlist this week. Seems like a good day to hunker down and do a little surfing while listening to some tunes. Hope you like it…
