* Featuring an exclusive interview with legendary Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly *

Christina Amphlett, the vivacious and soulful lead singer of the Divynals, sadly passed away this week in New York city where she had been bravely battling both breast cancer and MS. Christina will be forever immortalized as a true role model for female performers who fearlessly bare their sexuality and vulnerability, while taking a no-holds-bar approach to performance in an industry dominated by the masculine.  RIP Chrissie.

Another legendary Australian musical icon is featured today – the prolific singer-songwriter Paul Kelly.  Paul is currently touring his most recent LP ‘Spring and Fall’, which is a thoughtful acoustic song-cycle that tells the story of a love relationship as it ebbs and flows with the seasons.  I had the remarkable fortune to interview Paul in Seattle earlier this year.  Today you can hear that interview in full, in anticipation of Paul’s upcoming Wednesday night show in Vancouver at the Rio on Broadway.

* Featuring a tribute to the late Stompin’ Tom Conners and tracks from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in anticipation of the North American tour for the ‘Push The Sky Away’ LP *

Legendary country and western musician and Maritimer, Stompin’ Tom Conners , passed away in March of this year, leaving a legacy of over 300 songs, many of which chronicle his extensive travels throughout Canada.  He became a musical icon through the strength of his story telling and tunes referencing Canadian historical events.   For instance ‘The Martin Hartwell Story’ – which we play on the show today – is about a pilot who survived 31 days in the Northwest Territories, after resorting to cannibalism.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds return to North America this week in support of  ‘Push the Sky Away’, the band’s 15th official full-length.  Today we play ‘Jubilee Street’, the latest single from the album, after visiting the anarchic days of the Birthday Party, and small selection of earlier Bad Seeds tunes, including a haunting cover of ‘Hey Joe’.

Rounding out the show are brand new tracks from Melbourne’s Henry Wagons, featuring Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens on the track ‘I Still Can’t Find Her’, and the first single from Renny Wilson’s album ‘The Sugerglider’, out now on Mint Records.
