Grapes on Spotify
Say whatever you want about Don Cherry. But "you people" (which is now Canadian for "everyone") need to listen to his podcast on Spotify.
Don Cherry's Grapevine revives his old tv show from the 1980s. Back then he talked with ol' time hockey greats like King Clancy and Rocket Richard, sharing stories about the likes of Eddie Shore and Larry Cahan.
Some of that footage is used again now to tell more stories. Son Tim asks Cherry the questions but basically just winds him up and lets him go. Where he goes nobody knows. And those are often the best parts of the show. Such as his story of his dog Blue getting into it with a skunk!
I have not been a big fan of Coaches Corner for some time by any means. But I like this new show. In fact I say this is Don Cherry at his best for the first time in years.
