Time for a blog entry with all the interviews from 2009. One of those things where I knew there was a few but once I added them up it got to be a longer list than I though. [Added Allison Crowe which got lost in all the copy and paste I was doing]
Thanks to all those who gave time to be interviewed for the show in 2009. Time to go “Romper Room” and say thanks to Sora, Fergus, Ray, Andrea, Melanie, Tim, Melissa, Bryan, Ian, Toni Marie, Robin, Allison, Neate, Laurie, Gerry and Kirsten. Whew. Close to 18 hours of radio here so many weeks worth of listening if you missed some of them.
Sora on her latest CD and her music for this episode.
Fergus O’Byrne from the legendary Newfoundland group Ryan’s Fancy joins the show.
Ray Johnson from Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers before their tour stop in Kingston.
Andrea Wittgens, the first Queen’s graduate to join the show. Originally from Antigonish, NS and currently living in Seattle.
Melanie Samson a singer/songwriter from Newfoundland who sings in English and French. And she’s also a schoolteacher and we discuss that and her experience at the ECMA’s.
Tim Baker from Hey Rosetta! in an interview where he was walking around Toronto on a day off on his cellphone. Put together at the last minute before they came to Kingston last spring but it worked out well.
Melissa DiMarco from Out There before an episode where she visited Nova Scotia.
Bryan Page from Faded Blue on the 2 year anniversary show of the radio show. Interview was done live during the show as opposed to the usual taped scenario.
Ian Foster joined the program for the 3rd time before his 2009 tour. This time he drove from Newfoundland to Ontario, then flew to British Columbia for some dates.
Toni-Marie Wiseman from NTV who interviewed me for the Newfoundland Herald and helped get the Fergus O’Byrne interview. We talk about how she started out in radio and then moved to TV. Cover a lot of topics including her favorite songs.
Allison Crowe and her music for 2 hours.
Neate Sager on the Queen’s Golden Gaels Vanier Cup run.
Robin Meade from HLN’s Morning Express joined the show during her book tour. Day we taped it she was doing a book signing that night in her native Ohio.
Two Olympic torchbearers from the Kingston area, Laurie Walker and Rev. Gerry Moore. Then with Kirsten Mihailides from the Coca-Cola side of the Torch relay organizers.
Thanks again to all those who joined the show during 2009. Going to be hard to top that list of guests in 2010, but I’ll see who I can bring to the airwaves.
Queen’s Hockey tonight at 7:30pm against RMC. Friday the show will be a bit shorter due to another hockey game at 7:30pm followed by Queen’s Basketball Saturday at 8pm. Busy week of University sports on the station.
Hectic week with work, taping the interview with Robin and a road football game this week. So I dipped into the archives this week to last March. Episode with an interview I did with Andrea Wittgens and her latest CD in its entirety. Good chat with Andrea so for those who missed it last winter you can check it out tonight. Along with some other music in Hour 2.
This morning after work it was 3 degrees. So I think we might be skipping fall around here. That’s cold for early October.
I did a couple of new voiceover parts, but just saying it’s a rerun and that I’ll be back with a new show next week. Also mention the Robin Meade interview will air next Friday.
First Friday’s program, taped on Tuesday morning. If I remember correctly. Been a long week.
Music of Ron Hynes to open the show. Then Sharona Clarke, Christine Crawford and Jenn Grant.
Three female singers, all with names that start with the letter “A”. Not a plan but it worked out like that.
Andrea Gauster, Allison Crowe and Andrea Wittgens
NFL Week 2 picks, which I again forgot to call by it’s name on the show. “Carnell Knowledge”. That happens when you tape a show 7:30am after a long week of work. This week’s post will be shorter about the picks.
For the 1pm games: Atlanta over Carolina, Minnesota over Detroit, Green Bay over Cincinnati, Jacksonville over Arizona, Chiefs over Raiders, New England over NYJ, New Orleans over Philly, Tenn. over Houston and Washington over St. Louis.
4pm kickoff for these ones. Seattle over San Fran., Tampa over Buffalo, Pittsburgh over Chicago, Denver over Cleveland and Baltimore over San Diego.
Sunday night I went with Cowboys over Giants [I think, I’ve gone back and forth] and Indy over Miami on Monday.
Taped the show earlier in the week, before I went to Toronto to see U2 on Wednesday. Leaving a stadium at 11pm with 62,000 other people? Crowded. I’ll write a post about the trip later on.
Tonight on the [taped] show we have Ron Hynes, Sharona Clarke, Christine Crawford, Andrea Gauster, Allison Crowe & Andrea Wittgens. I mention Andrea Gauster’s show on Wolfe Island tonight. One problem with taping ahead of time is that the show is sold out. D’oh. But she’s living in Kingston now so you’ll have other chances to see her play in the area.
Queen’s Football tomorrow as well. The Golden Gaels travel to Ottawa with a 1pm kickoff. Hopefully another quick game as I get some sleep after the game and before I work Saturday night at 11pm. LOL,
Open the show with a CD I got that week from Sharona Clarke.
Followed by the latest discs from Andrea Wittgens and Coco Love Alcorn.
End the hour with Scott Macleod and GlamourPuss.
Blues to start off the second hour GlamourPuss and Garrett Mason. Garrett is coming to Kingston as part of the Limestone Blues Festival at the end of August.
After that The Lever Pulled and Ryan Neilson.
End the hour with some folk/bluegrass/celtic with The Dardanelles.
Bit later than usual but Friday’s radio show.
From the back up studio for the week as some repairs were going on in the main one.
So some longer sets of music. Hour 1 with Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers, Ron Hynes, The Lever Pulled and Andrea Wittgens.
Hour 2 of a night of long sets continue. New music to the show from Brite Vu. Then some blues from GlamourPuss. End the hour with some Great Big Sea from Fortune’s Favour and end the show with Sora.
This Friday I think we’ll do the 2 year anniversary show. Does work out to the same time as I started 2 years ago. Might have a new interview lined up, which would be good timing. I’ll bring out some old clips and I’ll figure out other stuff during the week.
Watched two NCAA games go into Overtime last night, then a bit of soccer today. But the show is up now.
Open the show with ‘Fall into the Ocean’ by Mark Frost. Written about the recent helicopter crash off the coast of Newfoundland.
Then an interview with Andrea Wittgens, and her CD ‘In the Skyline’ for the rest of the hour.
Rest of the interview with Andrea Wittgens. Music from ‘In The Skyline’ and a couple tracks from her Alibi EP.
End the show with Jenn Grant and Paisley Jura.
