“Sounds Atlantic” was created by Ron in 2007 in order to showcase talent in the Atlantic Canadian provinces of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
Ron is also a master of ceremonies at various festivals and concerts in Canada and the U.S., a former band leader (“The Back 40 Band”), and a singer-songwriter. He is a five-time winner of the “Disc Jockey of the Year” award and has been “retired” – having been inducted into the Central Canada Bluegrass “Hall of Honour” in 2010.
Ron has been involved in community radio since 1993 and has served as the Chair of Radio Carleton (CKCU 93.1 FM), as well as a music consultant to the Government of New Brunswick, and he has judged for the East Coast Music Association at its annual East Coast Music Awards.
His recording of “Like I Used to Do” (Tim O’Brien/Pat Alger) appears on the compilation recording titled “Real Country – With Some of the Valley’s Best” (Paugan Music, Ottawa, Ontario).
Sounds Atlantic can be heard each Sunday from 8 to 10 p.m., with your host Ron Moores.
The show showcases talent from the Maritimes and includes music from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
Each week you’ll hear unique east coast music and hear great interviews with Atlantic musicians from across the eastern provinces.
If you love the Maritimes, then Sounds Atlantic is for you!
