Summer Special – The Community Cup 2013

CKCU CBC Ottawa Commuity Cup Photo Frame

It’s soon to write a blog entry as the current season wrapped up but this is a Summer special. All I can say that it was a great opportunity to participate in The Community Cup for the second year and to support and represent CKCU-FM. What a way to start the Summer fun and a lead in to Canada Day.

I have to grin and bear it as Team CBC Ottawa beat Team CKCU to a score of 3-1. They took a nice revenge after a score-less tie from last year’s game. All in all, it’s for a good fun and no bitterness afterwards. You were awesome and a class act. It was also great to see Amanda Putz of CBC Bandwidth as I haven’t seen her around in quite awhile. Great to see get into the soccer spirit and downing Team CKCU.
I was able to shoot this video on Instagram of the post-game handshakes. Another Instagram video with Teri Loretto and Jewne Johnson doing the news. Lastly, I brought along the Fujifilm Instax Camera and the people were astonished to see the camera and instant film.

It was nice to have hosts of Fundamentally Sound and Debaser take part in this year’s Community Cup and there were a few other hosts as well. Kudos to DJ 2 Creamz for DJing at the event as well.
Time to recover from the pain.

On the Summer edition of WildWorks on CKCU, I will be airing some of the reactions and thoughts from the teammates and a few from CBC Ottawa.
Have a great Canada Day! You can check the photos from Canada Day over at this link.

Update for July 3rd – Audio segment from The Community Cup is posted up. It consisted of reactions of teammates from CKCU and CBC Ottawa. An apology as I forgot to give thanks to the organizers of The Community Cup on the radio show.

It’s June – Radio Show: Loon Choir, Graham Wright & Gianna Lauren Interviews – S05.2E09

It’s June and I am almost nearing the end of the blogging series but there’s a couple of more week of new materials for my radio show. To start off, it’s a first of sorts as I used the Apple iPad to play music tracks over on the Ottawa airwaves. Cutting edge technology to say the least. I had the opportunity to air the Loon Choir interview, which was recorded in late April but their full length album was not released until May. I had to hold out until the album was released.
The playlist is posted up on CKCU’s Playlist site, here is the link.

The Wild 5 Countdown will be posted on a new page at this link.

Kudos go to CHUO’s Now Playing as the host has set up a blog for her radio show. I guess I got some “competition” as we play the same kind of music and interviews. It was nice to hang out for the June 2nd inaugural show in a non-speaking role but using the iPad.

Radio Show for June 9, 2010 – The Graham Wright Interview

Two hours of exciting music from Canadian independent artists and bands. I was happy to play new tracks from Black Mountain, Meligrove Band and Hot Hot Heat.
It was an opportunity to do a short interview with Tokyo Police Club’s Graham Wright. It was originally recorded in late March but aired it on Wednesday because his band’s 2nd album, Champ got released. It was fitting to air it as I still like “Breakneck Speed.”
Also on the show were the Wild 5 Countdown and talking about the 2010 FIFA World Cup Soccer in South Africa. Played the ever famous Three Lions but it’s the 2010 version.
The playlist for the radio show is at this link.

Here is the June 9th edition of my radio show. Press play to listen.

It’s jammed pack show with the two interviews. The Luyas was recorded in late April. The one from Bands Undone is a new one. I had the opportunity to check out formerly from Ottawa and now based to Halifax, Gianna Lauren and joining her is Field Assembly. They are embarking a train tour across Canada. They have a blog for their cross Canada tour at this link [via Tumblr].
