Ep. 45 - Oh, Canada! Canada's Rock Music Industry in the 70s

In the 1970s, it was not easy for Canadians to produce and distribute music that would be widely received by American or Canadian audiences. Their was the issue of cost and, maybe even more importantly, the issue of credibility. Canada's content laws made radio listeners skeptical about the bands they heard and whether they were "good," which tended to mean they had received an American stamp of approval. This episode examines the work and, in many cases, the perseverence of Canadian bands including Bachman Turner Overdrive, Rush, and Triumph as they worked to create careers that were sustainable beyond the Canadian borders.
