10 Canadian Songs that Turn 10 This Year

What were you doing 10 years ago when these songs came out?


Hedley “For the Nights I can’t Remember” from the album Famous Last Words

When “For the Nights …” was just hitting it big, I was making a big move from Ottawa back home to my parents’ house Beeton because I’d been hired here at KOOL FM as the new Midday Host. Five months later, I met Hedley at our old KOOL studios in the Koslov Centre.

February 13, 2008

Since then, I’ve married, bought a house (in Beeton, of course!) and had two kids. I still love my job here at KOOL FM as Midday Host and I still love hearing “For the Nights…” .
