Episode #1: Our First Trip Across Canada| August 21, 2008
Note: I updated the audio file on October 7, 2008. The new version was remixed and sounds much better.
(0:00 - 1:30) Introduction
(1:31-6:20) Rebekah Higgs - Parables (this song is from her self-titled debut CD, available at Zunior.com)
(6:21-15:59) I chat with Rebekah Higgs about how she recorded the album with Thomas Ryder Payne (of Joydrop fame), the Halifax music scene, and how she manages to create such rich-sounding live shows.
(16:00-25:17) Next, we talk with Brenda Earle, a Canadian jazz singer/pianist/composer/instructor. We talk about why she chose to live in New York City, and how she managed to learn a few thousand pop songs while working as an entertainer on cruise ships.
(25:18-30:10) Brenda Earle - Happening (the title track from her 2005 CD, available at CDBaby)
(30:11-40:16) Our last guest this time, I have a fun conversation with Simon Borer from Entire Cities. Simon tells us about the special props they used during their CD release party early in 2008, and we have an enlightening discussion about "podsafe" music, and the general state of the music industry.
(40:17 -42:14) Entire Cities - Dancing With My Brother (from their latest CD, Deep River, available at Zunior.com)
(42:15 - 43:40) Outro - Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out our blog at canadianruckus.com. See ya next time!
