* Phone interview with the band Radioglo from Auckland New Zealand *

Today’s special guests are Gene and Heath from the band Radioglo. They phone all the way from their home of Auckland on the North Island of New Zealand!  Radioglo came to my attention as one of the great bands on the AAA Records label, and I was determined to find out more about them.  You can hear this good-natured and talented pair speak of the joys of their songwriting partnership and the making of their eclectic and impressive debut record ‘In Between Time’.

* Featuring tracks from two different records by The Living End –  ‘It’s For Your Own Good’ (1996) and White Noise (2008) – and an interview with Vancouver folk musician Jenny Ritter *

The Living End is a seminal three-piece rockabilly/punk band from Melbourne, who features the pounding upright double-bass of Scott Owen and the blistering axe-work of singer Chris Cheney. The band formed in 1994 and shot to prominence after scoring the support slot for the 1995 Green Day tour, on the strength of a demo that was sent directly to Billie Joe Armstrong.  Today you can hear three tracks from the band’s debut recording ‘For Your Own Good’, before we leap ahead to the three singles from 2008’s  well-received ‘White Noise’ LP.

Jenny Ritter may be familiar to listeners as one of the sweet voices from seminal West Coast folk act The Gruff, who toured Canada frequently for a decade to much acclaim.  On today’s show I speak with Jenny down the line from her hometown of Victoria, BC, where she played the night previously at the launch of her debut full-length release, ‘Bright Mainland’.  Jenny speaks of her experiences playing music in Scandinavia and encouraging the flowering of local voices in the ever-popular Kingsgate Chorus.
