We also feature the latest single titled, Gloria Graham, from the brilliant Dave Graney, who has been active in Australian music since the late 70s. And lots of quality new Canadian music including tracks from three more of the acts who played at Arts On The Fly 2018 – Blocktreat, Red Monkey Black King and Pharis and Jason Romero.

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.
