Today a heaping helping of great new music, as well as a couple of exciting shows to preview, including the long-awaited Winnipeg debut of Bidiniband! Author, newspaper columnist, songwriter, founding member of Rheostatics, and leader of Bidiniband joins us to chat.
Today, a special show in honour of a special listener! It's Allison Green's birthday, and she's been one of the most devoted and encouraging supporters of this show. She listens online from Victoria, BC almost every single week, and has done so since the very beginning. Her musical tastes match ours so well that it was easy and an absolute pleasure to play a show full of artists that she loves, supports, and in some cases, has introduced us to! Happy Birthday!
It’s Groundhog Day and that’s got us thinking about groundhogs, shadows, and sunshine! We’ve also got some exciting Sunset Saloon news and some great music from past Sunset Saloon guests in honour of the anniversary of The Day the Music Died. Speaking of deaths, yesterday was the anniversary of the death of the great Blaze Foley, so a trip through his catalogue as well.
