For those that knew him, René was an avid music lover attending Irene’s Pub, and many local and long distance music festivals. René passed away suddenly on March 29, 2011 at the age of 63. René’s family made a very generous donation of René’s CD collection to the CKCU Music Library – a superb collection collected over a lifetime by a true music lover. Our hosts and audiences will be all the richer as a result, and we will cherish this donation for a very long time.
