What is the greatest year in music history?  Christopher and Tom weigh in and, not surprisingly, their answers are very different.  It prompts a rather lively and contentious discussion.

          Plus we pay tribute to the many artists we lost in 2022. But don’t expect this to be a mournful show.  Think of it more as a celebration of these artists.   Included this week:

  • Olivia Newton-John talks about her career
  • Meatloaf on how “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” could appeal to people of any era
  • Ronnie Hawkins on his love of Canadian music, and other sordid tales
  • Jerry Lee Lewis in one of the most weirdly chilling clips in our collection
  • Dan McCafferty explains how Nazareth got their name
  • Plus a clip from the most listened to episode in FLW history

And on When Rock Stars Attack – Jann Arden takes hilarious aim at an American singer.

We finish the show with another edition of the epic smackdown that is “TJ vs The VJ” as Tom & Christopher try to stump each in a test of musical knowledge.


Famous Lost Words is heard in 31 countries worldwide and on radio stations across Canada, including Newstalk 1010 Toronto, CJAD 800 Montreal, 580 CFRA Ottawa, AM 800 CKLW Windsor, Newstalk 1290 London, 610 CKTB St Catharines, CFAX Victoria, AM1150 Kelowna and 91x in Belleville.
