Stranded podcast #185

* Featuring singer-songwriter Zeb Pigott-Duggan LIVE in studio *

Believe it or not, The Boss himself,Bruce Springsteen, has recently recorded a cover of the 1986 classic by The Saints ‘Just Like Fire Would’!  It’s on his new album High Hopes.  I’m not sure what Bruce’s association with Chris Bailey is but it must be an intriguing series of events that led to this huge star paying homage to an Australian punk legend. Internet sources note Bailey may pocket $500,000 in royalties!

Zeb Pigott Duggan is our special studio guest this week.  He is playing a show at the Railway Club next Friday night along with David Roy Parsons and myself!  Zeb, who grew up playing traditional Irish music with his father,  time spent many years performing vocals and violin with Vancouver band The Next Hundred Years.   He speaks today of growing up in Vancouver in the 1980s, and performs three very emotionally-resonate tunes solo acoustic.  MG
