Intro and Extro for Bill and Sue-On Hillman's "Sail On 747"
Back to music and back to our Canada Day Special.
It gives me great pleasure and delight to be playing this next track. If there's ever going to be a Manitoba Music Hall of Fame -- and I'll probably be long dead by then because there is no momentum. Everyone loves the idea but no one seems to be ale to take it further than just an idea. But if there ever is one these two for sure will be charter members in there -- they are legends in Western Manitoba and legends throughout Manitoba -- they've been touring, I don't want to say how long because I don't want to embarrass them with any dates. But I love this song, it's a great, great song and should have been a big hit. They wrote this song after touring the UK -- man, they toured the UK -- how cool is that -- and they did recordings in the UK -- pretty cool. It's about wanting to come back to Canada.
This is Bill and Sue-On Hillman -- our buddies from out in Brandon -- in the big BR -- and this is a great song called Sail On 747:

You've gotta love that song -- great tune. Bill and Sue-On Hillman from Brandon, MB and Sail On 747. I think that should be re-released. Great tune.
