  • Singer-songwriter Liz Stringer LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Occasionally a bona-fide Australian touring musician makes his or her way to Vancouver and even as far as CiTR radio for an interview and live session on Stranded! This week I jumped at the chance to meet one of Australia’s most respect singer-songwriters – the legendary Liz Stringer from Melbourne. Vancouver is the first stop on Liz’s inaugural Canadian tour. Listeners are in for a real treat as Liz shares three flawlessly written and soulfully performed acoustic songs. She also fills us in on the joys of her recent recording session in Portland, OR and speaks of her life in Melbourne, including her supportive musical connection with Mick Thomas of Weddings Parties Anything.

* Singer-songwriter Janaya Salmond LIVE in the CiTR studio *

This week’s extra special guest is a fresh face to Vancouver’s singer-songwriter scene – Janaya Salmond. Janaya comes from a musical family and has been surrounded by great songwriting all her life, as her father is a music producer. Janaya is a talented multi-instrumentalist and she chose to accompany herself on the show with an uncommon instrument known as a strum-stick. Tune in to hear Janaya soulfully execute two of her original compositions that will no doubt be on her forthcoming debut album!

* Featuring bands on the roster of New Zealand’s Flying Nun Records *

Today on the show I feature two of the flag-ship bands on the much-lauded Flying Nun Records label from New Zealand – The Verlaines and The Bats.  Flying Nun has been the incubator for the influential ‘Dunedin Sound’ of indie pop.  During a period in the 80s and 90s, Dunedin, along with Olympia, WA and Glasgow, Scotland, was a key center for the global indie-pop underground.  The tracks from the Verlaines and The Bats will take you back to this era and perhaps wet your appetite to explore this wonderful roster of bands on Flying Nun, that exists as a cultural force to this day.

Sadly, on today’s show I also give regards to Peter ‘Blackie’ Black of Sydney punk legends The Hard-Ons.  Blackie was recently beaten in a senseless attack while driving a taxi on this day job, which resulted in serious injuries and bruising to the brain.  It’s been inspiring to see fans online rally to Blackie’s support by donating funds to help him with living expenses for the next few months while he recovers.

And CiTR’s own Chrisarrific, host of Part’s Unknown, is featured at the tail end of the show.  I play all three tracks on his latest 7″ called ‘Bible Belts.  Enjoy!  MG
