* Featuring the music of The Seekers *

In keeping with the regular format of this show, we begin with featuring some older Australian music, this week in the form of three classics from easy-listening folk act The Seekers, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2012.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that this five-piece, fronted by Judith Durham, have sold millions and albums and in the mid-60s were even competing with heavy-weights like The Rolling Stones on the UK albums charts. The band broke up only 6 years after the initial whirl-wind of international acclaim that began shortly after the band’s inception.

* Part two of an interview with First Nations activist Rose Henry *

Rose Henry was a guest on the show only a matter of weeks ago, but she was in town again so I was excited to have her pop into the studio for a catch-up.  Rose has just spent time at the the Burnaby Mountain protest against the highly controversial Kinder Morgan Pipeline and she fills us in today on what she observed and took part in on the mountain.
