It’s a brand new year here on Stranded we’re kicking it off by featuring a stack of tracks from Kiwi artists. i was delighted to discover that New Zealand had it’s very own power-house 60s British-invasion style band called The La De Das. As you can hear from the single ‘Gonna See My Baby Tonight’, the La De Das were most certainly world class, and they achieved considerable success in both New Zealand and Australia before they split in 1975. And lots of great new music from Canada on the show, as always, including new tracks from legends Buffy Sainte-Marie and Geoff Berner. And we introduce listeners to VISSIA from Edmonton, and  traditional folk act The Eastpointers from Prince Edward Island who recently wrapped up their first tour of Australia.
