The Olenka and the Autumn Lovers Interview – S08E05

This week’s radio show had the interview with the indie folk band, Olenka and the Autumn Lovers. I had the opportunity to chat with Olenka Krakus, the lead member of the band at Raw Sugar Cafe last Friday night. We chatted about the new EP, Hard Times, touring throughout Canada and being in Ottawa. The audio will be posted below if you want to listen.
The first part of the show had Lauren joining me for the top 10 countdown and Digory for the second part of the show, which was aired live on CKCU-FM.
As usual, there were new Canadian indie tracks played from the likes of Lindi Ortega, Inlet Sound and The Luyas. It was nice to have Lindi Ortega send a tweet for the thanks in playing her song from the new album, Cigarettes & Truckstops.
Speaking of thanks, there was a bit of a post-Thanksgiving discussion since there was a holiday in Canada. Good ol’ turkey.
There was a tribute on the live radio show and it was celebrating Anita Mui’s birthday on this day, October 10th. It’s been close to nine years as Mui is no longer around as her music is still cherished from old and young fans alike.
This week’s Wild 10 Countdown entry will be posted up later.
Hope you will enjoy this week’s show and the interview.

From The Juno Nominees to Love Songs – S07E25

This week’s show has a lot of materials covered as myself and co-host, Lauren talked about the Juno Awards nominees and then playing love songs for Valentine’s Day. The 2012 edition of the Juno Awards will be in Ottawa on April 1st. The nominees were announced on Tuesday and the selections were pretty satisfying as Canadian indie bands and musicians from the likes of Dan Mangan, The Sheepdogs, Braids, Diamond Rings and Hey Rosetta! got Juno nods. It’s nice to see these bands and musicians get recognized.
The next part is the photo above as we did the heart shape symbol. Valentine’s Day is upon us and it’s become a yearly thing to play love songs. As usual, it’s mainly on the Chinese songs and First Love by Utada Hikaru as it deals with love and fitting for Valentine’s Day. DJ Digs joined in the live part of the show.
Since this week’s radio show is pretty jam packed, you can listen to two parts as it’s best to not listen to the entire show in one sitting. The first part is the Wild 10 Countdown and the Juno Awards nominees and the second part is the live show on CKCU-FM. There’s an extra from the live show as we continued to have an entertaining discussion on Valentine’s Day and boy bands.
