This week I read on the I-94 Bar website a glowing review of a rare local show by Sydney-based punk stalwarts The Celibate Rifles.  So I was inspired to revisit three classics from the band’s catalogue at the top of the show.   We introduce listeners to Kiwi-based soul/r&b artist Aaradhna whose song ‘Brown Girl’ is a response to her experiences with racism.  We shift gears with a track from Montreal-based metal band Floating Widget‘s debut record.  And we also feature tracks from the sophisticated folk/pop Vancouver-based outfit Jasper Sloan Yip and Frontal Lobotomy, a cool three-piece folk act from Prince George, BC who I had the good fortune to see live recently.

* Sarah Wheeler LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Today is a milestone for ‘Stranded’ – podcast #200!  Much thanks to all of you loyal listeners and to the staff and programmers at CiTR radio for supporting the broadcasting of this show for the past few years.  Without your support it wouldn’t have been possible to host the amazing and inspiring in-studio guests we’ve had so far, including Sarah Wheeler, who joins us for the celebration this week.  Sarah is a well-established singer-songwriter and born-and-bred Vancouverite, with a powerful, resonant singing voice.  Sarah plays three tunes for us in the studio today, demonstrating her commitment to writing songs which come from the heart and which exhibit an unwavering social conscience.
