We introduce listeners this week to the sublime sounds of Australian Indigenous roots musician Frank Yamma. Frank is a Pitjantjatjara man from Central Australia who speaks 5 languages and sings in both Pitjantjatjara and English. He is about to embark on a rare Canadian tour, with a performance at the Wise Hall in Vancouver on 11 August, followed by the Robson Valley Music Festival on 13th and 14th of August. You can hear tracks from Frank’s albums ‘Countryman’ (2010) and ‘Uncle’ (2014) at the top of this week’s show.

Our special guests this week are East-Vancouver band The Staggers and Jaggs! I caught up with four the members of this energetic gypsy-jazz/rock/blues ensemble at a Sunday morning cafe show in Williams Lake, BC. I was most surprised and pleased to discover that one of the band members hails from Tasmania! Tune in to hear a great chat with these interesting folk.

It’s a slow-paced summer holiday edition of the show this week. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of great live studio guests ahead! We start the show off with two tracks a piece from New Zealand indie legends Graeme Downes (The Verlaines) and Dimmer, featuring Shayne Carter of the groundbreaking Straightjacket Fits.

The remainder of the show is dedicated to catching up on some fantastic new Cancon, including the brand new New Pornographers single!

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!
