This week marks 300 podcasts for Stranded!  Thank-you listeners for tuning in each week and a special thanks to those who were instrumental in giving me the chance to get the show off the ground – firstly Jay Hannley at CJSR in Edmonton and then Luke Meat at CiTR in Vancouver.  And a shout-out to the show’s original co-host Matt Mazowita (you are missed).  Coincidently it’s also the 40th anniversary of the release of ‘I’m Stranded’ by The Saints! This classic album was released 21 February, 1977.  We kick off the show with three tracks from I’m Stranded, before featuring fresh tracks from The Bats and Tony Daunt and the Dauntless (both from New Zealand) and Canadian singer-songwriters Orit Shimoni and Rose Cousins.

Paul Kelly & the Stormwater Boys – ‘Stumbling Block’ [AU]
Paul Kelly – ‘Sonnet 18’ [AU]
This Way North – ‘Don’t You Fly’ [AU]

Interview with Sam Tudor
Sam Tudor – ‘Vaccines’ [CA]
Drum and Bell Tower – ‘Song Zero’ [CA]
Ok Vancouver Ok – ‘Black Part of Light’ [CA]
Hazy – ‘You More’ [CA]
Supermoon- ‘Fast Fashion’ [CA]

I’ve been on a roots-music kick of late so I thought I’d play one track apiece from the two albums that Paul Kelly put out with blue-grass backing bands – Paul Kelly and Uncle Bill – ‘Smoke’ (1999) and Paul Kelly and the Stormwater Boys – ‘Stolen Apples’ (2007). Both albums were well-received by Paul Kelly fans and root-music lovers alike. I follow that with a track from Paul Kelly’s latest album Seven Sonnets and a Song (2016), which remarkably features Paul putting music to the sonnets of Williams Shakespeare, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the passing of the great bard.

Our special guest this week is singer-songwriter Sam Tudor, who is based in the Cariboo in BC, after time spent in Vancouver. I ran into Sam at the Arts Wells music festival and was pleased to discover he was wearing a CiTR radio sweater! Sam speaks about his community radio roots and describes how he got into songwriting an record making with the help of an influential school teacher.

* 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!
