Interview with Con O’Brien from The Irish Descendants on tonight’s program. Spoke to him a few days ago. Runs about 15 minutes which I’ll play during the show tonight. Talk about the 20th anniversary tour, recent stops in Vancouver and Texas and the concert in Kingston on Tuesday. You will also hear about where you can meet and greet with the band after the show. Just keep your ticket stub. It’s in a certain Irish Pub downtown. Big hint.
Friday is the start of the Paralympics with the Opening Ceremony. Tape delayed till Saturday afternoon on CTV, but I believe you can watch it live on the web. As opposed to the Olympics your bet to see things live is on the internet. TV coverage is the most ever in Canada. But it’s packaged into a highlights show. So all those who teased our American friends who got stuck with NBC you will know how they feel. Some live sports though, the Gold Medal Sledge Hockey game for instance.
I’ll be keeping tabs on it, with working overnight I should see more highlights than the average person.
Some Christmas music and a Curling song from R.J. Lautenschlager.
Songs from Teresa Ennis’ latest CD “Stars” and go back to 2004 with The Irish Descendants as they’re coming to Kingston in March.
Start off with a chat with 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 organizers.
Couple of songs from Kenny Butler then tracks from Ian Foster’s ECMA nominated instrumental album. Almost 30 minutes worth of that.
Bit late but both hours are now online. For those who might’ve missed it due to enjoying the last weekend in May.
Today is June 1st? Wasn’t New Year’s just recently? Guess not.
Some Allison Crowe from her Album ‘Secrets’ and an update on her UK/European travels and headaches.
Back to 1993 with Ron Hynes. Then some music from The Irish Descendants and back in time again with Figgy Duff also from 1993.
Brand new music from Jessica Rhaye’s new CD ‘Good Things’.
Then a few tracks from Joel Plaskett’s solo project, ‘Three’. Which is a Triple Album so it will take a while for me to get through all the songs.
Jenn Grant and Sora to end the hour.
