Summer Special 2013: The Social Media Summer Series #2

Lenny and Jenna Instax

This week’s guest for the Social Media Summer Series, it was an opportunity to bring in Jenna Tenn-Yuk. All I have to say that she’s multi-talented with the poetry and music that she showcases. The topics discussed were blogging, some social media and what’s great about Ottawa.
Another part that was delved on today’s show as Tenn-Yuk wrote on her blog in 2012 about coming out of the closet. The topic on LGBT was brought up and I was being careful in asking the right questions.
Briefly mentioned during the music break was on the late singer, Leslie Cheung as I thought she might know Chinese music (known as Cantopop).

Songs played this week were new music from Shad, Basia Bulat, The Balconies and The Naked And Famous. It’s exciting to hear new releases from bands and artists as we anticipate their new record.
The playlist can checked at this link. You can listen to the audio below.

As usual, I was joined by Katarina, host of The Cloud on CKCU-FM. All in all, what a great way to end July. I totally apologize if I didn’t introduce her name on the air.
Lastly, I’m enjoying taking photos from the Fujifilm Instax. As the photo posted above was taken on the Instax. I may not be a trendsetter but I’m just having fun shooting photos from digital and analog.

Programming note, The Wild 10 Countdown will be on a Summer break and will try to post the July 24th edition as soon as possible.
Have a great long weekend as we get into August.

Update: Here are links as Tenn-Yuk was in the news about LBGT.

Summer Special 2013 – The Social Media Summer Series #1

WildWorksSMSInstax1

It’s back for another year. The Social Media Summer series is an alternative program for my radio show on CKCU-FM. It’s a spotlight on people who are using social media and how it’s become very useful to one another. It started with the dynamic duo of Nat & Marie last year and this year, it’s going local and trying to get guests live on the show to talk about their use of social media. Another topic to bring up on the SMS series is the importance that Ottawa is not a boring city. Letting the listenings on getting the better perspective of Canada’s Nation’s Capital. There are a lot of interesting places and things to check out in Ottawa.

The first guest for the 2013 is Nick Bachusky. He’s a mortgage agent but he’s a host of a podcast series called Lunch Out Loud Ottawa. Aside from that, Bachusky is an avid music fan. You can listen to the audio below or on the playlist at CKCU-FM’s website.
Hope you enjoy the interview with Nick Bachusky and the playlist from the live show can seen over at this link via CKCU-FM.
Also on the show, myself, along with Summer guest co-host, Katarina and Nick went through some of the nominees for the Polaris Music Prize Short List. I forgot to add Colin Stetson on the live show. It was used on the podcast part of the show.
On the Wild 10 Countdown, Louise Burns is still number one for the second week. You can check summary at this link.

Have a great week and stay cool from the hot weather.
