This week marks 300 podcasts for Stranded!  Thank-you listeners for tuning in each week and a special thanks to those who were instrumental in giving me the chance to get the show off the ground – firstly Jay Hannley at CJSR in Edmonton and then Luke Meat at CiTR in Vancouver.  And a shout-out to the show’s original co-host Matt Mazowita (you are missed).  Coincidently it’s also the 40th anniversary of the release of ‘I’m Stranded’ by The Saints! This classic album was released 21 February, 1977.  We kick off the show with three tracks from I’m Stranded, before featuring fresh tracks from The Bats and Tony Daunt and the Dauntless (both from New Zealand) and Canadian singer-songwriters Orit Shimoni and Rose Cousins.
