I did not expect to do another solo hosting as guest/fill-in on CKCU-FM. Supposedly, I was going to co-host and then solo host the half hour from 11.00-11.30am. I think it’s my final time to be hosting during the Funding Drive, 2009 edition. It was fun while it lasted. Hopefully, the station’s goal needs to be $109,000 by Sunday.
I hope you will enjoy the interview with Becky Ninkovic of You Say Party! We Say Die! It was done on October 22, 2009 at Sounds Unlikely, a local music store and it was their first live acoustic performance. I made a few goof ups in the interview because I was recovering from my sore throat. It was last minute to check them out because I didn’t know they would be making a stop in Ottawa. In a way, I rushed things for creating the questions. One unaired blooper had me saying, “You Say Party! You Say Die!” I did some further editing using Apple’s Garageband. I can say that I feel pleased that I fixed up the interview and probably one of my favorite interviews, aside from a few goof ups. I’m so hooked on their album, XXXX. Their songs are just catchy. For anyone liking New Wave music, it’s a must for anyone who love the 80s and possibly 90s New Wave genre.
Aside from the interview from the radio show, I played three songs connecting to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the long list nominees for CBC Radio 3‘s Bucky Awards, 2009 edition.
Here’s Wednesday’s show, press play to listen.
