It was a Great Night on the Lash – Slainte! Coral FM.
Well here it is. My first little podcast.
Thought I would post the little segment I sent out to Vancouver today.
It features a new Vancouver hip hop band called Byg Country, featuring Bobby B, and YourBoy TheKiid. CHECK IT. Coral FM
I am so happy, as I have now mastered Audacity! I featured a Vancouver hip hop band called Byg Country on Coral FM and have just sent them today’s Coral FM segment with their latest track Wise Wondering. I think that might have been their radio debut with this brand new track.
On today’s show I also featured the eclectic brilliance of Laurie Anderson who is coming to the Perimeter Institute Jan 19 with her show Pushing the Perimeters. check out www.perimeterinstitute.ca under Arts and Culture for Full Details.
HERE IS THE PLAYLIST FOR DEC 7 2011. Not sure where Dec 31 1969 is coming from. BUT I am sure one The Fabulous Tech Guys will assist me :)))
Lauren B. Davis was here in support of her latest novel Our Daily Bread. She, husband Ron,and Dave from Wordsworth Books dropped by the Sound FM studios, and I had a chance to interview Lauren about her latest novel Our Daily Bread. This is a potent and addictive read, based on Nova Scotia’s Goler Clan.
Lauren who lived in Nova Scotia at one time, said she had heard about them and the horrors on South Mountain. So after doing some research on the Golers she decided to write Our Daily Bread…
It is definitely one of my favorite books this year, and it is the kind of book that stays with you long after you have read the final few chapters.
It was great to have Lauren in the studios as my guest chatting about Our Daily Bread, her other award winning works including Radiant City, and The Stubborn Season, and her creative process.
Lauren is currently in Switzerland working on her next novel.
She sent me pics from our studio session. And I hope to make this a podcast soon.
I was thrilled when I heard recently that Our Daily Bread made The Globe and Mail’s Top 100 Books of 2011.
And writer to writer, Lauren has this to say about being in this profession of deadlines.
“Writing is like having a six hundred pound St Bernard in the house, and the weather is much like it is today, it’s raining and it is sleek and it is windy and it is dreadful. And all you really want to do is sit in the front of the fire and read your book, but there is a six hundred pound St Bernard that is standing there with its leash in its mouth demanding that you walk it. And the more you ignore it, the more likely it is to pee on your carpet and eat your couch. Ultimately it just becomes easier to walk the damn dog, than it does to ignore it, and that for me is the way writing is. It’s a nagging, it’s an urging..”
