*Featuring an interview with Australian musician and former resident of Vancouver, Tizza Taylor *

Grant McLennan passed away seven years ago this week, at age 48, from an unexpected heart attack at his home in Brisbane, Queensland.   This was the same city where he formed the literate and influential band The Go-Betweens, with songwriting partner Robert Forster, in 1977.   Today on the show we feature some choice cuts from some classic Go-Betweens records, and McLennan’s solo recordings.

Earlier this year I had a chance meeting with Tizza Taylor, an Australian traveller and former resident of Vancouver.  Tizza is a musician and tour manager who had the good fortune to work the Jimmy Little Foundation that was established by the highly respected Aboriginal performer Jimmy Little, to raise awareness of health issues impacting Aboriginal people in Australia.  Tune in today to hear Tizza’s fascinating story and insights into the life of the late Jimmy Little.
