This week marks 300 podcasts for Stranded!  Thank-you listeners for tuning in each week and a special thanks to those who were instrumental in giving me the chance to get the show off the ground – firstly Jay Hannley at CJSR in Edmonton and then Luke Meat at CiTR in Vancouver.  And a shout-out to the show’s original co-host Matt Mazowita (you are missed).  Coincidently it’s also the 40th anniversary of the release of ‘I’m Stranded’ by The Saints! This classic album was released 21 February, 1977.  We kick off the show with three tracks from I’m Stranded, before featuring fresh tracks from The Bats and Tony Daunt and the Dauntless (both from New Zealand) and Canadian singer-songwriters Orit Shimoni and Rose Cousins.

This week we begin by revisiting the theme song of this show – ‘(I’m) Stranded’ by The Saints! This classic Ed Kuepper/Chris Bailey composition was first recorded exactly 40 years ago to the day I’m recording this show! It came out as an initial run of 500 7″ singles in September of 1976. We air the track in full as well as the brilliant b-side ‘No Time’. We follow up with a brand new track from Ed Kuepper who has been a prolific force in the world of Australian independent music since the Saints disbanded after three classic albums.

Lots of quality new Canadian music this week including a new single from Jay Arner and two stunning new artists – Alexandria Maillot of BC and Marlaena Moore from Alberta. We also introduce listeners to a spirited World Fusion group from the Okanagan called Barefoot Caravan.
