Music Memory - Archie Alleyne

Music Memory is sponsored by the Alzheimer Society of Toronto, offering the "Music For Memory Project":  a program based on the effects of music and stimulation on people with dementia, by providing them with iPods containing personalized music. For more information, visit

This week we hear from Good Morning Toronto Host Garvia Bailey, and how Toronto drummer Archie Alleyne shaped her take on the city and music.

"I was so struck by the passing of Archie," she says. "So, we start with that smile, that's the first thing that struck me upon meeting Archie Alleyne."

"Archie sat and told me stories of a Toronto music scene that I didn't know existed; one full of racial tension, community building of an indomitable spirit of unity against all odds."
