* Part two of an interview with First Nations activist Rose Henry *

Rose Henry was a guest on the show only a matter of weeks ago, but she was in town again so I was excited to have her pop into the studio for a catch-up.  Rose has just spent time at the the Burnaby Mountain protest against the highly controversial Kinder Morgan Pipeline and she fills us in today on what she observed and took part in on the mountain.

* Interviews with First Nations activist Rose Henry and musician Peter Foldy *

Two of our favourite guests revisit the show today – First Nations activist Rose Henry and film maker/musician Peter Foldy.  Rose has caught the ferry from Victoria, BC, to attend a meeting with the British Columbia Public Interest Research Centre. As alway, she passionately brings us up to date with the struggle for social justice in this part of the world, and today she reminds us of the issue of voter ID requirements in the lead-up to the next federal election.

Peter Foldy returns to play some tunes from his long awaited new record ‘Nine Lives.’ First up we revisit his fascinating early story growing up in Australia where he was friends with The Bee Gees when they were first starting out. We air a couple of early Bee Gees compositions, as well as two tracks by another childhood friend Trevor Gordon who is actually backed by the youthful Bee Gees. I highly recommend listening to these tunes as a reminder of the sophistication of the early Bee Gees’ songwriting.

* Featuring a special on National Aboriginal Day 2012, including interviews with Rose from Redsoulbluez and Victoria homeless activist Rose Henry *

On Thursday June 21, Canada celebrated National Aboriginal Day.  In the previous week I was fortunate to see  Aboriginal blues musician and Juno Award winner, Murray Porter, play live in Vancouver.  Supporting Murray was a brand new project called Redsoulbluez and I interviewed Rose from the band.  She speaks about what it’s like to be an Aboriginal musician in Canada today.  I was also privileged to interview highly respected activist Rose Henry of Victoria, BC.  On today’s show you can hear Rose explain the importance of the decolonization movement and the urgent need for more equitable treatment of First Nations Canadians by government. 

In today’s show I also feature some classic tracks from Australian Aboriginal musicians and feature a rising star of contemporary Aboriginal music, Benny Walker.  You’ll also learn about some historical and contemporary issues relating to Australian Indigenous people’s struggles for social justice and self-determination.  Much respect to the Coast Salish people of the Vancouver region and the Ngunnawal people of the Canberra region where I grew up in Australia.  MG
