Sounds of Calgary: Calgary Tower with Shine Machine
The Calgary Tower was built in 1967 as a centennial project by Husky Oil. At the time it was the tallest structure in Calgary (in fact in Canada outside of Toronto) and the tallest structure of its kind, standing at 190.8 metres tall. It hosts a revolving restaurant, a carillon that chimes everyday at noon and a glass-floored observation deck. It’s a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike. Shine Machine is the duo of local musicians Steve Fletcher & Jonathan May, they’re talented local musicians who play a variety of genres and today’s recording session was no exception.
