* Featuring an interview with Jordan Bober, organizer of this week’s ‘Living the New Economy’ summit in Vancouver, BC *

We have something different on the show today.  Our special guest is Jordan Bober, who is a leading figure in Vancouver’s progressive communities who are organizing for more sustainable ways of living and co-creating.  Jordan is the director at large of the Vancouver Green Party, and co-initator of the Seedstock Community Currency.

Today he phones through to speak about this week’s cutting edge event called Living the New Economy, a 6-day confluence of events, people and ideas to explore, understand, remember and catalyze the deeply interconnected nature of our world.  Folks still have time to get down to Granville Island this weekend and take part in some innovative workshops which will open their eyes to real alternatives to our current unbalanced and unfair economic system.  Listen in to be inspired!

* Featuring an interview with Myriam Steinberg, artistic director of the In The House Festival *

Vancouver music lovers have been gifted, this coming Saturday, with a free outdoor homecoming concert by The New Pornographers!  This Vancouver super group, featuring the world-class songwriting talents of Carl Newman (Superconductor, Zumpano) and Dan Bejar (Destroyer), has recorded five albums of effervescent power-pop, as well as giving birth to numerous solo efforts from the band’s other key singing voices Kathryn Calder and Neko Case.  Today on the show you can hear a selection of tunes by the band, recorded between 2000 and 2010.

This year, the In The House Festival is celebrating 10 years of opening the homes of local residents, to host an array of outstanding musical, comedic and theatrical talent.  Festival director Myriam Steinberg phones through today to chat about the origins of this unique and amazing community-building festival and to encourage listeners to attend the 10-year anniversary gala and fundraiser, which is being held next Thursday night at Famee Furlane Hall, 2605 E.Pender St, Vancouver.

The yearly DOXA documentary film festival is being held this weekend in Vancouver.  In the second half of the show today I review local production ‘East Hastings Pharmacy’ , directed by Antoine Bourges, which is being shown on Sunday at 2pm. MG

* Featuring a mix-bag of great new Cancon tunes *

I recently discovered a curious compilation LP in the CiTR record library that is perfect for the show -‘Beyond The Southern Cross – A Compilation of Indie Recordings from Australia and New Zealand’.  ‘Beyond The Southern Cross’ was released as a double vinyl album by Ink Records (INK 4D) in 1984 and features tracks by notable underground bands who were active in the late 70s/early 80s.  We play from the compilation two tracks a piece by Tactics and legendary Flying Nun band The Clean, from New Zealand.

The remainder of the show is dedicated to showcasing recent releases by a superb crop of Canadian independent artists, many of who have recently been touring extensively throughout Canada, and even Scandinavia for Jenny Ritter.  Brave Parents is the hypnotic new project from Shane Turner who has recently relocated from Vancouver to Toronto.  Another real treat today is two tracks by Eamon McGrath from the Pegasus sessions of demo recordings that were recorded during the autumn of 2011, prior to last year’s last year’s Young Canadians.

* Featuring the classic ‘Weedseed’ 7″ from Woollongong stoner legends Tumbleweed *

Last weekend during the Khatsalano Fest in Kits, I strolled into Zulu Records and stumbled across a copy of the classic ‘Weedseed‘ 7″ by Tumbleweed!  What an amazing find.  It’s a beautiful 2 x orange vinyl with a photo pasted inside and cool artwork by Lenny.  Tumbleweed was the first live band I ever saw in Canberra and I always kept up with what they were doing on record.  It’s exciting to hear they have re-formed and are recording again as well.  I wonder if they’ll ever make it to North America…? Today on the show I couldn’t help but play the whole EP in it’s entirety, going right back to 1992.  For many listeners, this may be an introduction to a this classic ‘stoner’ band from Woollongong.  I’m sure you’ll be hungry for more!

Also on today’s show I feature a couple of Australian bands that are gaining attention from listeners in the US – Twerps and Royal Headache.  Both of these bands have been added to many college station playlists in the past few weeks.  Exciting stuff.  I play a track from the debut album by Australian indie rockers The Valery Trails and finish up with some local tracks by prominent folkies Geoff Berner and Buckman Coe.  MG
