On August 17, 1965, the Beatles made their second appearance in Toronto, at Maple Leaf Gardens.


The group had played two shows a year earlier, with two half-hour sets featuring a dozen songs that started with a bang as the four moptops performed Twist and Shout.

The accompanying picture, with Paul McCartney, features L-R:  L-R: CHUM AM/FM VP & GM Allan Slaight, CHUM newsman JJ Richards, and DJ Dave Johnson.

Doug Thompson and Aireum, Canada's broadcast museum, supplied this shot that was likely taken by CHUM's main photographer in the '60s, Neil Newton.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
