Hamilton’s own beloved son, drummer Jack Pedler was recently hospitalized for a week after taking ill with a painful condition called “diverticulitis”. He has had to cancel all his gigs for the next few months and is scheduled for two more operations between now and November when he hopes (fingers crossed) that he’ll be back playing again. Jack is a full-time musician who relies solely on his income from gigs to pay his bills. He’s shown us so much love as a great friend, a dedicated full-time professional musician and top-drawer citizen of this city. Let’s give back to Jack! Let’s show him the LOVE!!! (thanks Lori)
A house band will be confirmed in the next few days. Any friends of Jack who would like to take part should contact me asap. Looking for guests to get up with the house band. Hoping Jack will be one of them by then!
More info shortly.
Lori Yates was kind enough to start a gofundme campaign for donations. Any spare cash for Jack would be greatly appreciated. https://www.gofundme.com/2jf47pns

Want to thank Norm Thornton,Rob McArthur,Carolyn Dobson Walsh, Lori Grasley Thompson,Natalie Guindon,Kelly Barry, Art B.& Alison Novak from Bay City and all the musicians (way to many to mention)who gave their time to make last night such a success. We brought in over 5 grand for Jack! Special thanks to all who showed up or donated to the cause. Jack really appreciates what everyone has done for him in his time of need. Q

Jack will be talking to Lou Molinaro live on air at around 4:10pm On today's Lou's Control Rock N Roll Radio Program. We will be paying attention to two tribute shows happening this weekend. Sat Nov 5th - we pay tribute to Robert Gordon who is undergoing some serious health issues. So expect to hear some cool music from Robert Gordon! Plus we will also be chatting about the big Jack Pedler fundraiser that is happening this Sunday night! Unfortunately, one of Hamilton's favourite sons is also experiencing some health complications, so you know that we will be spinning music from Jack as well. Rob Sweeney gives us the MP3 Of The Week. You will be delighted to know that you will hear music from The Konrads, Mississippi John Hurt, Dave Davies, Gary Celebrity, early Pere Ubu, The Nice, The Fuzztones, The Creation, Steve Marriott amd more! Hey!! Manolis Zontanos will also be co-hosting today's show with me. Lou's Control - Wednesdays from 3pm to 5pm only on 93.3 CFMU. Tune in locally or hear us online at cfmu.msumcmaster.ca In the meantime, enjoy this classic from Jack Pedler as we await his big fundraiser show this weekend! Love ya Jack! -
