On The Record With Cliff Dumas

By Dave Charles

Cliff Dumas is the new owner of the American-based radio group Local First Media with 23 radio stations under his direction.


A bit of a backgrounder.  I met Cliff at 1280 CHAM in Hamilton, where he was developing his on-air talent.  It didn’t take him long to establish his on-air persona and presence.  I knew from the first time we worked together that Cliff Dumas would go on to do many great things in Radio.  We consulted most of the on-air talent for Moffat Radio at the time.

Cliff spent many years in Country Music Radio, getting great ratings and becoming the first Canadian Broadcast to earn CMA and ACM awards in the U.S. and multiple CCMA Awards in Canada.  His keen interests in radio have now transferred to the ownership of Local First Media group in the U.S.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
