New podcast is up, re-air of part of the radio show from Friday night. But I added some new voiceover at the start and some interview outtakes.
At the end of the podcast I talked about the ECMA’s which are on CBC next weekend. Few minutes about that and last year’s stupid idea where the 20th anniversary awards show wasn’t televised. Bit of a long story but I explain it.
With the length of the interview and the songs I didn’t divide up the show into separate hours. So here’s the full 2 hour show. One of the better shows I think. Content was great, no technical mistakes and already have heard a good response.
Got a phone call from across the border. Caller in Watertown, NY as he had just gotten home and wanted to know more about Sora.
Going to put up a podcast just with Sora’s stuff sometime in the next week. Already recorded some extra voiceovers for that and am going to find some outtakes from our interview.
Interview I did recently with Sora. And I play tracks from her upcoming CD, Heartwood. Along with some other songs from Sora for a lot of the show.
In the second hour I also played some of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers. They’re coming to Kingston in May, and I did an interview with Ray Johnson from the band right after this episode aired.
Music from Ian Foster to open and close the show. Brand new song to open the show and some rare “demo” versions to end the show.
Spoke to Fergus O’Byrne last night, interview went well and that will air in a couple of weeks. Going to get some new music from Fergus so we’re going to wait till I have that in my hands. Had to reschedule the one with Andrea Wittgens so that will be delayed a bit.
The interview I did with Sora will air on Friday, done editing it today. I’ll be playing brand new music from her upcoming CD, ‘Heartwood’. And some songs from her earlier CD’s.
Delay with Friday’s episodes being put up. Busy weekend with the funding drive, Queen’s hockey and I did a phone interview with Sora.
Will take a few days for all the totals to come in for the funding drive. Hopeful of hitting the goal of $18,000 but it might be tight. Thanks to everyone who gave, not the best time to be asking for money for sure. Economy not so good, and right after the holiday bills came in.
Queen’s won the Carr-Harris Cup this year over RMC, 1-0. Yes, only 1 goal was scored and that was in the 3rd period. Usually they’re a high scoring game but not this year.
Interview I did with Sora will air on Feb. 20th. This Friday the show is an hour due to the last hockey game of the regualar season. So I thought I’d wait for a week where I have the full 2 hours. So I can air the entire interview and her music. Interview went really well, and we talked for 20 minutes after I stopped taping. 🙂
Finally the deadline for the latest letters of support for DawgFM is Thursday Feb. 12th. Just go back to the previous blog post for details on that.
The Facebook group for the station just passed 1000 members. A good sign.
I had a coffee with Ed Torres from DawgFM a few days ago. He was traveling by Kingston on a trip from Ottawa on Thursday. Ed’s hopeful things will turn out well and thanked me for the help I’ve done on air. Had quite a few letters from the Kingston area so I’ll take credit for that. LOL.
Facebook group popularity is ahead of what he thought it would be so that’s a good sign. Mentioned getting letters of support all across Canada and from Blues Societies across the country. And not just the major centres. Kingston has one, Guelph too. The Facebook page had a fan from Toronto wanting to know if they will have an online stream so he could listen at work. Which they would. Blues fans are dedicated.
Friday’s show will be up by tomorrow. I’ll put up a post once they’re up.
