Regular listeners know that I kick off the show each week with a few older tunes, typically from Australia or New Zealand. I was pleased to stumble across a list of ‘100 Best Canadian Songs Ever‘ by Huffington Post this week that’ll be ideal for educating Australian listeners about the rich heritage of Canadian popular music. We start this week with classics from A Tribe Called Red, Joel Plaskett and Toronto-based indie band Change Of Heart with their 1992 single ‘There You Go’.

It was real pleasure to chat with our first special guest of 2017 – singer-songwriter Oren Barter, who was born and bred in central BC. Oren took time out from packing before relocating to Vancouver Island, to fill us in on how he came to record his debut record ‘Written All Over Me’ (2010) and to play a couple of heart-felt acoustic tunes!

Stranded podcast #237

February 21, 2015

* Featuring a retrospective on The Church *

Here on Stranded we periodically re-visit the exquisite and arguably peerless musical back catalogue of legendary Australian band The Church.  And it’s fitting this week given the band, who have been recording masterworks of lyrically-evocative guitar-driven psychedelia since 1980, are embarking on a North American tour in support of their 25th album ‘Further/Deeper’, which includes a date in Vancouver on 21 Feb!  A contingent of hard-core fans have expressed dismay with the departure of founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper but it’s clear from listening closely to the new record, that replacement Ian Hague (formerly of Powderfinger) has very ably stepped in to fill Marty’s formidable shoes.
