The Return of a Past Host & a Dedication to Graduating Students – S07E42

It’s June and it’s the time when I start to wrap things up to the current season on the blog and the radio show. It was quite a surprise to begin June’s show with a return appearance of a previous radio host at CKCU. It was Erica, formerly of Horses Spilled Milk and was an occasional guest on my radio show. It was great to play Feist and Beach House with her accompaniment as there’s been excellent indie music releases lately. The reason to playing Feist was that she will be performing at Parliament Hill for Canada Day on July 1st.

Aside from that, there was a dedication to the graduating students at Carleton University as the convocation were happening this week. As mentioned on the radio show, I had the opportunity to meet some of the people on other CKCU-FM shows since it was connected to their Journalism program/courses. It’s become a yearly thing to play Graduation (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C as it’s played at this time when the school year ends and people moving on.

As usual, the blog part of the show has the Wild 10 Countdown. There’s a new number one song to start June and then there are two performers who will playing at Ottawa Folk Festival. Lastly, Westfest is this weekend as there’s so many events happening for the month of June and onwards until September in Ottawa. It will be endless to check out festivals throughout Summer.
To check what was played, the playlist to the June 6 show is at this link.
