featuring that “Canadian citizen” who returned to his birth country, the USA, Jesse Winchester. RIP, Jesse!
This town straddles the border of Canada and the United States. And the border line goes right through the Haskell Opera House. The stage, where Stuart McLean is standing, is in Canada but the audience is in the United States. Making this the only opera house in the USA without a stage and the only one in Canada without an audience.
Stuart tells a story about the time Dave tried to smuggle clothing across the border, and the border patrol mistake him for a different kind of smuggler all together.
This show will air on CBC Radio One & Two, Sirius 159, KUOW, WFYI, WCPN, Prairie Public, North Country Public Radio, Iowa Public Radio, NIPR, KNPR, KBBI, KWMR, WTIP, WPTC, WBEZ, Maine Public Broadcasting Network, KSQM 91.5FM, WUTC, WFSU, WHDD and WUCX
