Not sure that I’d shared this before, but here’s my weekly radio show on CJTR!

Folks, when Montreal lost our free English weeklies, the Hour and the MTL Mirror, it was devastating. We lost alternative voices for, and records of, the activist/non-profit/indie business/art communities (CultMTL rose from these ashes, thankfully). Regina, I urge you to recognize and celebrate all the ways that your true independent weekly the Prairie Dog supports your city, records your lives, and celebrates culture, by way of things like the Annual Best Of issue, Folk Festival guide, interviews with touring bands, restaurant reviews, alternate news coverage and more. Please share this link and urge anyone you know who’s read/been in/lined their kitty litter tray with the Prairie Dog to buy them a 20th anniversary birthday message:http://www.prairiedogmag.com/20/
1. Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings by Chris McMahon & Thyrza Segal
2. Alex Ross’s Listen to This
4. Prairie Dog Magazine’s 20th Anniversary celebrations! If you’re Regina-based, considering supporting Queen City’s only alternative weekly keep healthy and hale by placing a support message.
5. Jerusalem in My Heart’s track Yudaghdegh el-ra3ey walal-ghanam from the upcoming Mo7it Al-Mo7it on Constellation Records.
6. Blue Hawaii’s Try To Be from the up-coming Untogether album on Arbutus Records.
7. My partner Mike Rollo’s new film The Broken Altar about drive-in movie theatres which is all finished and starting to move out into the world. More soon!
9. John Nugent‘s Studio in Lumsden, SK, by architect Clifford Wiens. Remember when I was exulted about finding an earth ship? Well, turns out that I now know the family of the architect who built that building for a local sculptor. It isn’t an earth ship, turns out, but it is a Heritage site.
10. Regina’s YWCA Fitness program: affordable, not too busy, close to home!
It’s been a really busy, long time since I last posted here! I wasn’t sure what to write as so many changes had gone on in my life, so I think I’ll list some of the fun, item-izable stuff:
- I’ve moved to Western Canada, specifically Saskatchewan! Not sure how long I’ll be out here, but it’s neat cuz my band Cobra & Vulture have finally released…
- …our prairie-themed album, Grasslands (do go on ahead and purchase a copy)! Since I can’t jam with my band on the regular, I’ve been…
- …hosting an hour long freeform radio show called Natural Sympathies and DJing events under that moniker as well.
- Have been writing for the free independent weekly in Regina called the Prairie Dog, doing mostly fashion and style interviews as well as music reviews.
- Working on new tunes and writing, but nothing shareable just yet!
Ok, now that that’s all out of the way, I can start posting on the regular again.
