Pump up the Volume

2010/11/12

Anybody that ever went to Red Deer College in recent memory probably had Jim for at least one class…Or met him in the Farside for at least one pint.

Jim is, of course, Dr. James Martens, but don’t ever call him that, even if you’re a fresh-faced kid straight out of high school stuttering through a conversation with him about reggae music and finding out that you can write history papers about stuff you’re actually interested in. So much for law school.

Leaving Red Deer for sunny Victoria about a year ago, Jim is teaching classes on the History of the Blues and hosts a radio program on CFUV Friday’s at 10-12:00pm mountain time, and 9-11:00am out on the coast. He’s on right now actually, and it’s great. He’s playin’ the blues and music from across the country. Tune in now and every week at:
