It’s timely to revisit the hard-rock institution AC/DC this week given the recent shock announcement of ‘new guy’ singer Brian Johnson being sidelined with a hearing issue and Axl Rose taking on vocal duties for the remainder of the ‘Rock or Bust Tour’. This follows the sad departure of Malcolm Young following his diagnosis of early on-set dementia. You’ll hear a couple of Bon Scott era classics and a mid-80s Brian Johnson era single.

We’re pleased to introduce some new artists this week including Australian shoe-gaze band Bloodhounds On My Trail and The Response, duo from New Zealand who have recently relocated to Vancouver, making them ideal for this show! You’ll also hear a couple of tracks from innovative BC electronica artist Blocktreat who we will be interviewing for an upcoming show.

Stranded podcast #230

January 3, 2015

* Leah Barley LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We kick off a brand new year with a brief retrospective of Eamon McGrath, singer-songwriter. With over 250 songs written and countless tours of Canada and Europe under his belt, Toronto-based (and Edmonton-bred) McGrath is seemingly on path to be one of the greats of Canadian song. Today you can hear a track from his brand new record Exile, as well as selections from the ‘Peacemaker’ and ‘Young Canadians’ records, which were recorded at JC/DC studios in Vancouver, and also tracks recorded in Edmonton from as far back as 2007.

Next up we are joined by our first special guest of 2015 – Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Leah Barley! Leah will be playing the ‘Stranded’ Sunday Sessions #4′ at the Railway Club on 11 January. She speaks today of her music journey beginning on a fateful day when she was introduced to a rowdy roots jam in Canmore, AB. Leah was a joy to interview and I’m sure you’ll be delighted by with her acoustic guitar and banjo renditions of three original songs.
