  1. Looking forward to that one! Just finished the very entertaining Zach episode. Listened to the letterman one while doing yardwork. That was a freaking fantastic discussion. I do wish many of them ran much longer. A 45 minute podcast comes out to only about 25 minutes of discussion with all the sponsor and post-show padding. The Deep Dives with Dana Carvey were pretty hilarious. I enjoyed Dana Carvey for the first time in a long time. I thought I listened to the entire run of season 1, but looking back at the guests, I think I may have missed some epics. also looking forward to watching his remote in Ghana.
  2. Freakbynight and I met with Daniel's brother, Dick (Dick Johnston is a funny name combination to me). He let us watch their warm-up and then invited us to join them for dinner at a korean joint. Daniel wanted to stop at the comic book shop on bank street first, which is where I captured this photo. Over dinner, they let me record an impromptu interview with Daniel which I later used in a podcast that Freak and I recorded. Sad that he's gone now. He left a helluva legacy as an ultimate indie artist. Of course later on there was a rough show at Zaphod's. His local pick up band were pretty solid. Here's a clip.
  3. holy shit that is a helluva a task that you've taken on and no doubt will be appreciated by the recipients. Jay Cleary should be able to help with King Sunshine as he used to promote them and i wouldn't be surprised if he had info on some of the others. Contact and Spin Cycle ring a bell but i don't have any recollections of members or relations.
  4. https://www.instagram.com/janesmart/?hl=en <---- was in hiway freeker.
  5. I'll DM you a name to reach out to for Comfort Station.
  6. Shocking and hard to believe news. He was such an impressive player. Pitchfork is reporting extra details, apparently from a representative. https://pitchfork.com/news/neal-casal-singer-songwriter-and-veteran-folk-guitarist-dead-at-50/
  7. this just needs to be quoted into perpetuity.
  8. This is a tiny snapshot, but I like this concept. It could be expanded to well over a hundred if one explores other Beatles tracks (ex: Something) and then moves on to the Wings.
  9. Epic for the pairing, not necessarily for the lead vox. lol.
  10. Meanwhile Katy Perry found guilty of lifting a computer generated common rhythm loop from a christian rap song.
  11. same. and he found a way to elevate it.
  12. omfg. i thought this was an announcement of the guy that always wears a beach boys cap.
  13. Do you want to keep your Jazz Festival at Confederation Park? Have your say. Dear Friends of the Ottawa Jazz Festival: I recently met with Tobi Nussbaum, the new CEO of the National Capital Commission, to brief him on the festival’s plans for our 40th anniversary when we return to Confederation Park in 2020 after the completion of the sewer tunnel work there. Mr. Nussbaum listened politely and then surprised me by saying it is not a "given" the jazz festival will be allowed back into Confederation Park. He explained the NCC is reviewing the role of the park, along with many of its other assets in the national capital region. I know many of you have stuck with the jazz festival on Marion Dewar Plaza at City Hall as a short term measure while Confederation Park was unavailable to us in 2018 or this year -- but with the understanding we could return in 2020 when the construction in the park is completed. Now, however, it appears the park may not ever be available to us again. This is not only disappointing, it is not good for the festival or for you, our audience. Over the years, so many of you have told me Confederation Park is THE best place in the city to listen to music: it’s a beautiful setting by the canal and among the trees in a safe, urban environment that is easily accessible by bus, bike, and on foot. You have told me you love the sound quality there as well as the park's proximity to the indoor venues at the National Arts Centre. And you have told me that sitting outside on the grass on a warm summer evening looking at the stars, enjoying the music with your friends, family and fellow jazz lovers are among the high points of your summers in Ottawa. There may be no more such memories unless we -- taxpayers and proud members of our community -- speak out about how our tax dollars are used and the access we are given to the resources our taxes support. There is no question about the economic value the festival brings to the region, to the city and to our neighbourhoods. But more than those economic benefits, the jazz festival brings to the city the things that make a community's heart beat: creative excellence, cultural significance, international recognition, a sense of togetherness. If being in Confederation Park is as important to you -- music lovers AND taxpayers -- as it is to those of us who put this event together for you each year, then please take a moment to add your name to the petition that’s linked here. And feel free to add your personal comments as well. We want this festival to remain what it has become noted for over the past four decades: an unimpeachable musical event in a sublime setting in the heart of the nation’s capital. Thank you for your support. Catherine O’Grady, Executive Producer
