* Featuring interviews with Richard from Kamloops band The Infectuals and singer-songwriter Andy Gordon from Kangaroo Valley, NSW *

A public service announcement this week – Al Mclean, an Australian ex-pat living in Vancouver, recently had his beloved acoustic guitar stolen from a pub in Whistler where he was playing a gig.  The guitar is an Australian-made Cole Clarke acoustic with a cutaway.  if you know of it’s whereabouts, please phone Al at 604 910 6508 or email him at alacoustic@hotmail.com

Today’s show features two interviews with very different artists.  First up is Richard of The Infectuals from Kamloops, BC.  This is a re-broadcast of the interview I recorded on a spontaneously when I was hosting a fill-in slot on a Saturday afternoon.  Darcy, the proprietor of Mr Brownstone’s Pub on Main Street, phoned and asked if I could feature the band on my show before their Thursday night show.   10 minutes later Richard pulled his van over the side of the road and patched through directly on air!  Richard reveals how his father actually started UBC’s very own Pit Pub back in the 1960s…

Then singer-songwriter Andy Gordon phones through from his home in Kangaroo Valley, NSW.  Andy, a self-described beardy-country artist, with an appreciation for history and the gift of well-crafted song, has just released his latest full-length album The Reverent Jorfy, available online and on vinyl. Andy takes us on a journey into Australia’s past as he reveals the story behind his single Breelong Black, which is a powerful alt folk retelling of the story of the Aboriginal bush ranger Jimmy Governor, as first documented in the Thomas Keneally novel, ‘The Chant Of Jimmy Blacksmith’.
