Got a comment on last night’s blog from Adrian, Allison Crowe’s manager.
“Sounds a great show – I’ll listen when I am back home. Travelling this weekend, as Allison starts rehearsing with a band for the first time in five+ years!! Rock and roll!”
Sounds interesting. Here is the links to last night’s show.
Music of Jenn Grant, Sharona Clarke, Allison Crowe, Christine Crawford, Ryan Neilson, Francis Arsenault, Remedy and Leonard Cohen.
Lots of new music in the first hour.
Also talk about the Watchmen movie and play both versions of Hallelujah. The Cohen version that was used in the movie, and Allison’s version which was the original plan.
Interview with Ray Johnson, and the music of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers. Who are starting their 25th anniversary tour.
End the show with Mark Hiscock, Justin Merdsoy, Jill Barber and Kelli Trottier.
#Update, show will be uploaded on Saturday night. Bit later than usual.
Tonight quick interview with Ray Johnson with Buddy Wasisname as they are starting a new tour. Hit Kingston May 5th at the Grand Theatre. And some music from the band.
Also music of Sharona Clarke, Justin Merdsoy, Allison Crowe, Christine Crawford, Ryan Neilson, Francis Arsenault, Remedy and Kelli Trottier. Can I cram all of that into 2 hours? Tune in and find out. 🙂
And after the show I’m conducting another interview, this time with Melanie Samson. Next Friday I’ll play the interview with Andrea Wittgens and her CD in it’s entirety. Spoke to Andrea over 40 minutes so I have a lot of content to work with.
Putting together this week’s show, early for once. 🙂
Of course I’ll air my interview with Ray Johnson of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers. Spoke for a few minutes about the new tour and other topics.
I’ll start playing some new music as well. Sharona Clarke who I heard on Radio ECMA. Also Justin Merdsoy who contacted me on Twitter. Sharona told him about the show. I thought Justin sounded familiar so went to his MySpace page. One song jumped out as “I’ve played that before”.
I did. Back during the 4th episode in June 2007 I played ‘Recollection’ by Justin. Good thing I kept the running blog on MySpace with who I played each week.
Also with the Watchmen music talk I’ll play Hallelujah. Leonard Cohen’s original which was used in the movie and Allison Crowe’s version which came close to being used. Might spread out playing them over the course of the show. Same song but the versions sound quite different.
