Rock 'n roll fans of all ages from coast to coast are mourning the loss of Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip.  We talked to a couple of big fans a day after we lost Downie to brain cancer. 

CHAB's Rob Carnie also talked about Downie's connection to hockey players across the country.  So many Tragically Hip songs, written by Downie, are songs about Canada and the impact hockey and hockey players have had on Canadians.  As you'll hear, Carnie quotes a social media post from former junior hockey star Scott Schoneck, a former captain of the Moose Jaw Warriors.

This photo of Gord Downie was taken by Moose Javian Cher Hunter who, over the years, photographed Gord and The Hip a number of times at their shows.
