Brand's music runs the gamut from novelty songs to serious social commentary and spans a number of genres.He has also written a number of short stories, including: "The Miser's Gold," about two young brothers who dare each other to spend the night in an allegedly haunted house - only to discover that "allegedly" is inapplicable. The boys encounter the ghost of a wealthy but lonely man; greatly amused by their reasons for being there, he names them as heirs to his considerable fortune."The Hitchhiker," about a young man who, on the way home from a party, picks up a beautiful young woman who turns out to be much more than she seems.

It has the distinction of being the longest continuously broadcast programme on radio, worldwide. It is so noted in the Guiness Book Of World Records. It was originally supposed to be a temporary programme but here it is 61 years later still being broadcast and featuring folk singers of today and yesterday. [September 2006]

1Since I first learned that words had meaning and that they could be communicated via the printed page, I have wanted to be a writer. I've also had a love affair with the stage -- since the day in 1924 when I was admitted free into the Pantages Theatre in Winnipeg.
2If you're carrying a guitar, you can feel safe anywhere in the world.
