For some odd reason, we took a trip to the barnyard, with songs about chickens, ponies, and even some monkeys. Don’t ask.
In between all of that silliness, we had a visit from Todd Hunter
& Jeff Derksen, who are about to release a new Todd Hunter Band
disc, called “Life Is Good.” Todd is good, and so is the record. He’s
not very silly though, and doesn’t know any songs about chickens,
ponies, or monkeys. Oh well.

It's Easter Sunday. We try really hard not to delve into politics or religion on this show; we're non-judgmental listening at its finest. But I have noticed that a lot of my favourite singer/songwriters have name-checked the man upstairs in songs that aren't exactly religious. So, because I'm never one to pass up a fun and easy theme, we heard some songs for Jesus, and then some songs just for us down here.

A bit of a mixed bag as usual. Some new releases and plenty of
excitement about the release of the lineup for the Winnipeg Folk
Then, a compilation of compilations, as I pulled a bunch of great compilation discs off the shelf and dug up some gems.
