Hello Robert,

Your Museum Of Can. Music website has solved a 49 year old mystery for me. In late 1969 I was working on an orchard in East Kelowna BC and listened nightly to the local radio station. The disk jockey played lots of weird stuff, but two songs have stuck with me for all those years. A major earworm. I remembered them as a slow ballad "When There's A Moon Over Kelowna", and a more up tempo " I've Got A Gal And Her Name Is Joe She Lives Over There In Nanaimo".

Thanks to citizenfreak.com for putting up the '58 compilation album "Songs Of British Columbia", which has both songs (the actual titles "Moon Over Kelowna" and "N-A-N-A-I-M-O" ). Now I know I wasn't dreaming. Peace at last!
Thanks again.

-Bob Carroll
