It’s that time of year to wrap things up and it’s been a wonderful season for the blog and the radio show. I know that both are on different series numbers as this blog is on seven and the radio show at three. It’s still confusing to say the least. As June wraps up, it was an exciting month due to various events and finally going to Toronto after a six year absence.
This past weekend was exciting as there were so many events in Ottawa. The Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, TD Ottawa Jazz Festival and one event I took part was The Community Cup. It was fun taking part in the soccer tournament, even though I was sore the next day. I will admit that I was out of shape playing soccer due to a lot of speed and endurance. Overall, it was to show new Canadians show the love of the game.
I was able to document the trash talking tweets between CKCU & CBC Ottawa and the images. It is at this link.
Wrapping Up The Season
Looking back from this year, it’s been an opportunity to chat with the usual Canadian bands and musicians. Probably the most exciting was getting my co-host, Lauren to come out and help me assistant on the interviews. The highlight having to be Dan Mangan back in October. Considering that he’s become popular now since the release of Oh Fortune and winning a Juno Award.
Another highlight was having Candice So coming on the show in November and having fun with the music that I usually play. There were a few low points but it won’t be mentioned. It was back in late October and early November, you’ll probably know and it was very frustrating for a reason.
Who’s the band to finish off this season? It’s Wendy Versus from Toronto. The interview was aired on CKCU-FM and I made a mistake after airing the interview by saying Crayon War instead of Crayon Wars.
The playlist for this week’s radio is at this link.
Have a great Summer. On a programming note, I will be airing the Nat & Marie interview in three parts. The Summer edition radio show will slightly be on the social media and online culture aspect. Hope you will enjoy it.
