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.

* Interview with Alea Rae and Nicholas from The Good In Everyone *

Today we revisit the proto-grunge sounds of Australia’s Cosmic Psychos, featuring the fuzz-bass and vocal growl of farmer and bulldozer driver Ross Knight. The fascinating and unlikely story of the band’s adventures overseas has been documented in the film ‘Blokes You Can Trust’ [2014].

Today is our xmas special and we air a handful of Christmas-themed songs, including a super-cool track by Vancouver’s Paul Leahy (of the band Polly) called ‘Rumble on Christmas Eve Night‘.

And in the last half hour of the show we catch up once again with Alea Rae and her band, as well as Nicholas from indie-pop band The Good In Everyone. Our returning guests reflect on the year in music, especially in regard to the Vancouver scene.

* 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.
