Former Sidewinder bassist Martin Craft has been making music under the name M.Craft for a number of years now. He recently relocated to the US and released an impressive third album named ‘Blood Moon’ from which we air the single ‘Chemical Trail’. Before that we revisit his previous life with three tracks from Sidewinder, a highly regarded indie/power-pop band who formed in Canberra in 1990. The band split 9 years later, leaving a legacy of two outstanding records and many memorable Australian shows.

I’m pleased to finally be able to air an interview with legendary outlaw country singer Joey Only. Joey has played over 2000 shows across Canada, both solo and with various incarnations of the Joey Only Outlaw Band. His previous record ‘Transgression Trail’ earned heavy rotation on campus/community radio across Canada, and his 2016 full length, ‘No More Trouble in the Peace’, is certainly set to do the same. I caught up with Joey recently at the Outlaw Lodge in Wells, BC, where Joey lives with his family.

* Interview with indie-pop band wild/kind *

This week we are joined in the studio by all four members of Vancouver-based indie-pop band wild/kind! wild/kind are a new addition to the Vancouver scene with a debut EP and a handful of shows under their belt.  They formed after lead singer Johnny posted a want-ad asking for folks who were fans of legendary east coast band Eric’s Trip.  One of the talented people who answered was drummer Natalie who happens to be from Christchurch New Zealand!  So, naturally wild/kind was an ideal band to pop in to the show and chat for a rather pleasant hour.
