* Phone interview with the band Radioglo from Auckland New Zealand *

Today’s special guests are Gene and Heath from the band Radioglo. They phone all the way from their home of Auckland on the North Island of New Zealand!  Radioglo came to my attention as one of the great bands on the AAA Records label, and I was determined to find out more about them.  You can hear this good-natured and talented pair speak of the joys of their songwriting partnership and the making of their eclectic and impressive debut record ‘In Between Time’.

* Featuring Nathaniel Krikke LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Regular listeners will know that since October 2014 we have been hosting the ‘Stranded Sunday Sessions’ – an intimate acoustic evening on the second Sunday of each month on the North Stage of the Railway Club in Vancouver.  Today’s special guest, Nathaniel Krikke, was a performer on the March bill.  Nathaniel, a brand new performer, who has roots in Northern Alberta, returns to Vancouver today from this home in Abbotsford to chat with us on air and play three expertly crafted acoustic roots tunes for us in the studio!

* Featuring tracks by The Go-Betweens *

This week we re-visit the sublime songwriting prowess of Grant McLennan and Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens. Following a string of sophisticated and critically acclaimed (but commercially negligible) albums the band called it quits, only to form for a further three albums, starting with ‘The Friends of Rachel Worth’. Some commentators have compared McLennan and Forster to the timeless Lennon/McCartney combo in the songwriting department. Have a listen to six tracks from the latter-period albums to see if this is an accurate comparison!
