Wednesday’s radio show had an airing the lovely band from Vancouver, BC, Language-Arts. The interview was recorded back in March and here’s a video that I helped filmed for Bands Undone at Canteen Art Shop + Gallery.
Since it’s another week that retrieving the audio for my radio show has been difficult due to issues surrounding the software. In short summary if you missed it, after the Language-Arts interview, I played Coughdrop and mentioned that I had been sick for a week and took some coughdrops. Let’s say that I briefly sang, “Ricola.”
The recap of the Wild 5 Countdown has 2 new entries and 3 songs slipping down a notch.
The Wild 5 Countdown for April 21, 2010
5. Search for Sarah Jane – Hawksley Workman
4. Fake It – Plants and Animals
3. Fixed – Stars
2. Odessa – Caribou
1. Laura Palmer’s Prom – You Say Party! We Say Die!
The reason for choosing Laura Palmer’s Prom was because of drummer, Devon Clifford, who passed away on Sunday, April 18, 2010. It’s been sad for Canadian music fans and the Canadian music industry because it was a sudden shock. As previously written on the last post, it was a privilege to see the band back on April 3, during the Easter holiday. Devon was the last person we chatted before heading back for a long walk to the hotel. Devon, Becky, Stephen, Krista and Derek of YSP! WSD! are the nicest people I have met. Without Devon’s humourous presence during their performance, it wouldn’t be same. I’m still pleased to see them several weeks and giving them their full support.
Also on show were brief mentions for Ottawa Bluesfest’s lineup (only played Metric and Basia Bulat), played 3 versions of Wavin’ Flag by K’Naan (one was a Chinese version) and Sandy Lam songs (her birthday is on April 26th)
Here is the show for April 21st, but the audio quality is not the best. You can check the playlist at this link. There’s a possibly of replaying some songs again in a few weeks when the host returns from his vacation in England and Europe.
Interview with Language-Arts – press play to listen or download it.
As the audio quality for this week’s radio show was not great, here are a few music videos of the songs that I played.
