Sentimental Journey

Loran at NS Music WeekSentimental Journey with host Loran Fevens is on the air every Sunday. Loran plays some of the most memorable classics from the 30’s, 40’s and a bit beyond! It’s the ultimate in nostalgia! Loran takes you on a musical journey through the songs, stories and interviews of musical legends. Fevens was well known locally for a decade when he was morning host on Annapolis Valley Radio (January 1964 to December 1974).

Sentimental Journey is a show Fevens started almost six years ago and is now carried on five radio stations in various parts of Canada. He started the program as a result of nineteen years of work with Veterans’ Affairs in Charlottetown where he created and managed a project to record broadcast-quality video interviews with Canada’s veterans.

Over a four-year period, Fevens gathered 1,800 hours of interviews with about 850 veterans from coast-to-coast. During those four years he heard veterans remark, time and time again, “We never hear our music anymore”. The program was intended to fill that need.

    Dear Loran Fevens,
    Without fail, every Sunday (and at this very moment) my wife Mary of 57 years (Dec. 3/17) listens to your show. By extension I also listen without fail. I just heard a song ‘an old Xmas card’ not sure who sang it but it poignantly reminded me of and old Slim Whitman song ‘An old spinning wheel’; Is this a coincidence or could I be mistaken? While I’m at it could you please play Buddy Holly’s “Rave On” for me. That was the song I was singing in my head when I first saw my wife, now almost 60 years ago. Please and thank-you.

      Hi Randy, I don’t know how often Loran would check this website for messages, so I thought I’d respond and let you know that the song you heard was most likely Jim Reeves’ “An Old Christmas Card.” I can hear the resemblance to the Slim Whitman song, too. Thank you for your support, hope you enjoyed the show!

    I am in my late 60’s, grew up in Saskatchewn listening to this music. My parents were musicians, they had a hifi and had a stack of records back in the 50′ & 60’s, lots of singing around the piano with good friends.
    Enjoy listening to this program on our local community station 93.1 Prince George, BC.

    Greetings Loran, I’m one of your radio fans and look forward to Sunday night here in Massachusetts. I usually have good reception on Sunday nights for which I’m thankful. Hopefully when Bob Bitner get his FM going in the Fall I won’t have any problems at all. By the way, I’m one of those 80+ guys…….AMEN !!

    Hello, I just wanted to say I listened to your lovely tribute to Don and Myrna Steeves last night (July 17 th 2016). Myrna was my best friend for 49 years and I truly miss her. Thank you for a great memory.
