Hi Don, I managed to make it back just in time for the Rock’n August Cruise Friday night. It has been a looong week, a lot of rubber on the road. A little disappointed that there wasn’t more Mopar products. Local band Dash Riprock entertained for the street dance. Tomorrow (Saturday) the annual Poundmaker Pow Wow. - Al.

Saturday Sessions August 12th Presents

This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions show 684 presents guest - Steve Boddington - a repeat back by popular demand show- a legendary Edmonton guitarist, who was born in England, Boddington has lived in Edmonton since 1960. He first started his musical career as a drummer with Wally Curtis and the Shades (1965), switched to guitar shortly after and never looked back. Influenced by heavies such as British blues guitarists Eric Clapton and Peter Green, he started the band Cat’s Squirrel and performed with numerous recording artists.

Possibly his biggest claim to fame happened in 1971 when he formed Hot Cottage, one of the longest playing and most in-demand blues/rock bands in Alberta. Steve was also guitarist in a band that opened for Cream in Edmonton in the late 60's and ended up hanging out on the town with a very young Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce after the show.“Steve’s blues rock tone and guitar style is amazing and has one of the tastiest aggressive bites to it,” says host Mark Ammar.
