* The Good In Everyone LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We’re fortunate again this week to have some enthusiastic guest performers live on air – Nicholas and Ben from new Vancouver indie band The Good In Everyone! The band takes their name from the classic Sloan single, so we begin the chat with Nick and Ben talking of their deep appreciation for the canon of Canadian rock. Most members of the Good In Everyone have played together previously in The Mercy Years, including drummer Jamison Troy, who was a previous guest on the show. Tune in to hear some acoustic tracks played live in the studio and catch the band at their EP release at the Biltmore Cabaret next friday night!

* Featuring interviews with Vancouver musician Joseph Hirabayashi and Canadian ex-pat Ocean Leaves *

It’s time to explore songs from seminal Canadian bands, and what better way to do so than by spinning the new compilation of the book ‘Have Not Been The Same: The Canrock Renaissance 1985-1995’.  We start with Vancouver band Slow who are underground legends who it is believed inspired bands that emerged from the Seattle grunge scene.   More history to come in future weeks…!

Joseph Hirabayashi is a highly respected multi-instrumentalist, music teacher member of Vancouver bands Aunts & Uncles and SPRING (formerly SSRIs).  We speak to Joseph on the phone today about is rock operetta contribution to this weekend’s musical event Spatial Poetics XII: Release Me – an evening of experimental and collaborative performances by an eclectic line-up of Asian Canadian artists.

The Australian part of the show begins with tracks from Brisbane band The Bloodpoets before our second interview, this time with Timothy Poitras, a singer-songwriter who operates in Australia under the name Ocean Leaves.  Timothy grew up in Ontario and relocated to Queensland four years ago, before marrying and finally settling down in the Blue Mountains, NSW.  Timothy reveals his musical and cross-oceanic journey today and we air tracks from his debut EP ‘Always Is The Time To Make Everything’.   With such strong Australian/Canadian connections, Ocean Leaves seems born for ‘Stranded’!

* Featuring tracks from the Ugly Pop Records series of garage-rock 7″ re-issues, and an ‘Arts Extra’ special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology until March 2013 *

Some more tracks from the Ugly Pop Records re-issue series on the show today!  We’re hearing from two Canadian garage rock bands from the 60s – The Northwest Company (Vancouver) and A Passing Fancy (Toronto), as well as the only recorded output of Edmonton’s Rock N Roll Bitches, whose 7″ Wild Wild West was recorded in 1980.  Vancouver listeners can purchase copies of these 7″s from Moloch Records.

We have  brief detour into the world of visual arts today with a special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) in Vancouver until March 2013.  Gwyn Hanssen Pigott is a world-renowned Australian ceramicist who was invited to pick out objects from the MOA collection and place them together in an exhibit, purely by reference to form and aesthetics.  I attended the opening of the exhibit a few weeks back and recorded an interview with Gwyn herself as well as a curator of the MOA.  You can hear those interviews today, as well as my reflections on the exhibit.

And it’s Christmas time, so Paul Kelly‘s classic ‘How To Make Gravy’ is a compulsory spin today! You can also hear the heartfelt classic ‘Christmas Eve (with you)’ by Peter Foldy and a brand new free-for-download Christmas tune by Sloan 🙂
