Stranded podcast #154

* Featuring interviews with Dan Costello and Tony Yacowar of Public Records & Graham Pence of Vancouver band Whoa! She’s A Babe’ *

Tonight at the Biltmore in Vancouver, CiTR Radio celebrates 30 years of Discorder Magazine!  The show starts today with tracks from bands who are playing at this party for this highly significant music scene institution. Discorder is certain to continue chronicling the superb output of the local music scene for many years to come…

We have two interviews on the show today.  First up is a chat with musicians Dan Costello and Tony Yacowar, calling through from Victoria. Dan and Tony are the founders of Public Records, a non-profit organization that has just announced the offer of a $5000 grant to a winning Western Canadian independent musician or band, to produce a music video.  Tune in to find out the details of this valuable initiative, and don’t forget to get your entries in by June 14.

Speaking of music videos, self-described Vancouver ‘party band’ Whoa! She’s A Babe gained considerable increase in exposure thanks to the release of their video for the 2012 single ‘Down Below’.  Guitarist of the band, Graham Pence, joins us in the studio today to chat about his experiences in the first two years of Whoa! She’s A Babe.  He reveals his level-headed approach to keeping an independent band productive and financially viable.

We wrap up the show with a few songs from 80’s garage rock legends The Eastern Dark  🙂
