It was special...a day I'll never forget.  A number of my co-workers were absolutely star-struck.  I was too.

Burton Cummings took time to visit CHAB Radio yesterday to talk about life and his two sold out shows at Moose Jaw's Cultural Centre next week.

Burton has been living in Moose Jaw for about a year now.  He likes it here.  He has pleasant memories of playing Temple Gardens back in the 60s.  

He told us he went to see The Sons of the Pioneers in concert at the Mae Wilson Theatre earlier this year and it was then he knew he needed - he wanted to put on a show there.  He booked two nights.  The shows sold out in hours.  If you have tickets, you're lucky.  It'll be special.

Burton Cummings is a gifted songwriter, musician and at the age of 70, he can still hit all the notes with his unmistakable voice.

How about that?  Rock 'n roll royalty - Burton Cummings - living and performing in The Friendly City of Moose Jaw.  That, my friends, is truly "Surprisingly Unexpected".
