Catching up with the last 2 episodes, lots of new music on these ones. People still finding the blog from looking up news on Toni Marie in the last week. Maybe people visiting St. John’s for the Junos and catching her on the news. She’s on vacation this week for those wondering where she is on the news.
Bruins pulled off an upset, I picked Buffalo in 7. Glad Boston won. If you’re wondering Bruins-Habs can’t happen till the Conference finals. Boston gets either the Flyers or Penguins in Round 2. Either way not much traveling for the Bruins. Both teams in Pennsylvania.
Back to the music.
Joel Plaskett solo CD from a few years back before he opened for Barenaked Ladies that Tuesday in Kingston.
More music from Price Edward Island. First time on the show for The Danks, Carmen Townshend, The Cashmere Disciples and Racoon Bandit. Meaghan Blanchard to end the first hour.
Open up with a band from PEI, Haunted Hearts. Instrumental track called “The GST Cheques are here” which I had to play just for the title.
Followed by Juno nominee, and eventual winner Amelia Curran from Newfoundland. Stay with the Rock with Chris Picco.
End the show with Nathan Wiley, an unreleased Hey Rosetta! song and Teresa Ennis.
Open the show with brand the new CD from Air Traffic Control. Then back to the mid 90’s with a Greg Keelor solo effort. More new music to end the first hour with a duo from out east called Lazy Bones. Couple of tracks from Allison Crowe too.
Allison Crowe to start the hour then back to a Joel Plaskett CD from a few years back. New music from a female duo, Madison Violet along with some blues from New Brunswick with Ross Neilsen. End the show with Hey Rosetta! who are in the midst of putting together a new album.
Demo and live tracks from Ian Foster to open the show. Then some folk with a bluegrass flavour from The Strangeboys. Some songs from Jenn Grant’s new CD Echoes.
Then an interview I taped 30 minutes before the show started with Melissa DiMarco. East coast connection that night as on her show ‘Out There’ that night she traveled to Nova Scotia and met up with Bubbles of the Trailer Park Boys. We chatted for about 12 minutes.
At the end of the hour, Melissa’s song request. For David Baxter with his title track, ‘Day and Age’. He’s a musician from Toronto who contributes to the Degrassi soundtrack. A show Melissa will be working on as they start shooting soon.
Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers who were playing Kingston that following Tuesday.
Some sets of music from The Fables, Ron Hynes and Meghan Blanchard.
End the show with 3 live songs. Allison Crowe’s cover of ‘Who Will Save Your Soul’. Greg Keelor and Cuff The Duke with ‘Palace of Gold’. End with Jessica Rhaye, ‘Holding Out’. Jessica has a new CD that’s coming out soon which I’ll be getting my hands on.
Here is Melissa’s email address that she gave out during the show, fans of her show can contact it here. And the many places the show is online. Website, YouTube, MySpace and Facebook.
Lot of places online to follow the show, as many things as me. I don’t have a YouTube channel, but I’m on Twitter. Maybe that’s next up for them. 🙂
Since I was running on little sleep last night I mixed up the start times. The new Out There episode was at 10pm, then the episode from the previous week was 10:30pm. Oops. But at least the episode in Nova Scotia is on again next week if my mistake caused you to miss it.
Thanks to Melissa for the interview.
Time to check out Bulls-Celtics Game 7, hopefully a close game.
Lazy Saturday afternoon in Kingston. But not too lazy that I didn’t put up the show from last night.
Lead off the show with a request for Great Big Sea.
Then interview with Melanie Samson and her CD in its entirety.
End the hour with a song by Dominique Dupuis.
A link to purchase Melanie’s CD is from her MySpace page. Thanks again to her for doing the interview.
Second hour starts with an idea to read some people’s Twitter posts on air. I went longer than expected. 🙂 Amazing the segment went since I had no script and just a few notes.
Then music of Hey Rosetta, Faded Blue, Ryan Neilson, Christine Crawford and Greg Keelor.
I figured out a segway from the Twitter segment to the Hey Rosetta song ‘Holy Shit [What a Relief]’. It makes sense if you listen to it.
They’re coming through a lot of Canada on a tour. Start in BC tonight. Then Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and the East Coast on a tour. Stopping in Kingston April 17th at the Grad Club.
Mix of music this week. RA Lautenschlager, Greg Keelor performing with Cuff The Duke, Chillin Room and Maddison Avenue.
Local music of Craig McIntyre. Got a request from an online listener in Hawaii for a song by Green Light Go, a band from Honolulu. Finish off the show with music of Andrea Wittgens, Kevin Collins and Allison Crowe.
Here is Hour 1 of the show, the website archives haven’t caught up yet to Hour 2. If I have time I grab it off the computer at the station but only got the first half last night.
On air today at 6pm EST for about half an hour on ‘The Blues Project’, then doing the pregame show for hockey. Which means I will have the second of hour of this show uploaded by tonight.
Open the show with some live tracks from Great Big Sea. Then a local singer from Napanee, John MacPherson. Next up some music from Ron Hynes and his most recent CD. End the first hour with some solo music from Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo.
With Ian Foster, Allison Crowe, Andrea Wittgens, Crowdis Bridge and Meaghan Blanchard
