A foundational figure in Canadian jazz

As a boy, Jim Galloway would lie in bed captivated as he listened to strains of jazz music on the radio. American Armed Forces Radio, BBC, the Voice of America, sounds from France and Belgium and other random signals would drift into his room in a small, coastal Scottish town near the North Atlantic in the middle of the night. He could pick up broadcasts from astonishing distances - even some from the United States.
