Link to Friday’s Show, on Thursday

What you can do when you tape an episode a day in advance.

Brand new music from a singer who is soon to be a Kingstonian, Andrea Gauster. She starts at the Queen’s Medical School. Found her through Twitter. Open up the show with some songs from Andrea, including one about Twitter.

Then a new band to the show, Shores of Newfoundland. Based in Kingston but currently on tour in Newfoundland. Music from their 1999 disc and a live one they recorded here in Kingston at the Tir Nan Og.

End with the hour with one song from Allison Crowe. Taped this week’s show ahead of time and saw I had 8 minutes to fill up till top of the hour. So I know her song Disease is a little over 8 minutes.

Start off the hour with a singer you might have heard of from Nova Scotia, Sarah Mclachlan. After the show found the list I had made up last year of all the artists I’ve played on the show. Sarah wasn’t on there. 2 years of the show and not playing her once? My bad.

To make up for it a few songs from her debut album from 1988 and on vinyl to boot. Couldn’t find any of her CD’s at the station but luckily in the record collection they had the original 1988 album. A collector’s item I found out since it was re-released in 1989 with some extra songs when she was also signed by a US record label. One song you might have heard before, the other 3 I bet you haven’t.

Follow that up with a cover version of Angel by Allison Crowe.

Then some songs from Great Big Sea’s Fortune Favour and Joel Plaskett’s Three to end the show.

    Hi Rob ~

    It can sorta be like Groundhog Day, eh?

    I’ll be sure to tune in – as time warps.

    I’m just getting back in gear online. Finally organizing files/data in my new computer. A process that is long overdue.

    Allison’s got about one more week – or ten days, hanging in Cow Head – before immersing herself in the process of creating a new album. When you’re both around, sometime in August should be a fine time for your chat.

    Hope you’re enjoying a great Summer!

    a bientot, Ad

    A new computer should help you a lot. Mine is a few years old but still holding up well. Bit of luck always with that.

    Luckily the weather for tomorrow is the same as today. Chance of thunderstorms for the next 2 days, so when I talk about bad weather it still will be true. 🙂

    I mention trying to get Allison on the show during the episode this week. So I must’ve been psychic. ha ha.

    I was at a friend’s wedding the same weekend – doing the PA/sound – and we had a giant thunder/lightning/rainstorm. The band was performing outside. I didn’t dry out until the next day (and I’m talking about the rain…)

    Funny you played the earliest Sarah McLachlan tracks. Brings back memories to me of when she first relocated from H-town to Vancouver. I was living in Vancouver at the time, and was at several of Sarah’s first concert performances in that city. It was evident she was bound for great things.

    I saw Sarah M at the Railway Club, two nights in a row, and there was a small but devoted audience at those shows. Same story for Blue Rodeo – with Bobby Wiseman – when they first hit the west coast.

    It was special in a number of ways to return some 15 years or so later with Allison and her band for a two-night stand at “the Rail”. Especially memorable for the guys who hauled the baby grand up to the third story via the stairwell.

    Yup, your crystall ball – or is it an eight ball – is working well. Alley’s recording some tracks and then will be breathing in later August, before she travels to BC for more recording. We can aim to get you together either while she’s still in NL, or, once she’s on this coast.

    We all have it in mind, so, let’s just play the recording process by ear – and then, synchronize time zones/watches!

    Blue Rodeo

    Allison played – I still have pics of the guys who hauled the grand piano up to the third floor.
