* Interview with storyteller Naomi Steinberg *

Today’s special guest is professional storyteller Naomi Steinberg.  We’ve interviewed poets and other spoken word artists on the show before, but Naomi brings a whole new perspective on what it means to connect to the heart through the age-old technique of story-telling.  Naomi speaks about the mentorship she received at the start of her story-telling journey, and the work she has done in the local arts scene.  And Naomi has certainly found the right show to come in and chat on, as she is about to embark on a trip to Australia, in the cargo hold of a ship!  Melbournites will be able to enjoy Naomi perform once she reaches the shores of Victoria.

* Featuring an interview with Alex Alegria, director of the Mariachi Festival Canada *

Chris Basarba of Basone Guitars has been filling me in of late about the history of Vancouver punk and hardcore and one of the bands he’s recommended is Sparkmarker.  I tracked down an archived recording of Sparkmarker playing ‘Live At Thunderbird Radio Hell’ on CiTR in 1991 and you can hear the song ‘Courage’ from this session at the top of the show.

This Saturday Vancouver plays host to the Mariarchi Festival Canada.  Alex Alegria, founder  of the festival, phones through today to inform the listeners about the origins of Mariarchi music in Mexico and to tell of his journey from busking as a new immigrant in Vancouver, to leader of Mariachi Los Dorados and hard-working festival director.

Sadly, one of Canada’s most impressive indie bands, The City Streets, is calling it a day, but not before releasing their swan-song LP ‘Pretenders’.  You can hear three tracks from this record on the show today.  MG

* Featuring an interview with Los Angeles-based musician and filmmaker Peter Foldy who recorded a string of great pop hits in the 1970s, and who has spent time living in Australia and Canada *

The long-running Canadian independent label Ugly Pop Records is re-issuing some classic 7″ singles, including some vinyl from Australia. IN-SECT are an obscure 60s garage band from Adelaide, SA, who released their first single in June 1966.  Today on the show you can hear both sides of this fuzzed-out gem of a 7″, including the b-side cover of a Yardbirds classic.

And we continue featuring tunes from Adelaide with two brand new tracks from legendary hard-core band The Mark of Cain.  It’s been over 10 years since we’ve heard from brothers John (voc/guitars) and Kim Scott (bass) and drummer John Stainer, previously of US band Helmet.  The new record ‘Songs of the Third and Fifth’ is a typically brutal yet beautiful tour de force of tight playing and lyrics which focus on military themes and the plight of the lone existentialist.

We’re delighted to invite filmmaker and songwriter Peter Foldy to chat during the second half of the show.  Peter has recently taken time out from his busy schedule in Los Angeles to assist Todd Fancey of the New Pornographers to record a solo release in Vancouver.  Today Peter shares some of his fascinating life story which spans a youth spent in Sydney, where he was friends with the Bee Gees when they were just starting out, through to his own breakthrough as an artist with the heart-felt classic single ‘Bondi Junction’ (1973).
