with The Elwins

Hey friends, this is Candice writing a quick recap of today’s edition of WildWorks.

So busy, busy show today – not only did we have a double dose of interviews with bands Young Rival and The Elwins, but today was also Lenny’s birthday! Happy birthday, friend! Here’s to another amazing year ahead and all the DAVIDsTEA your heart desires. : )
The photo shown is Lenny with The Elwins, after the interview.

On today’s show, we played a few tracks from artists and bands that are competing in CBC Music’s Searchlight contest. CBC is looking for Canada’s next big thing, and the winning artist/band will get a sweet $20,000 in music-related equipment from Yamaha. The list of the top 20 acts is slated to be released Feb. 25.

Ending The 2012 Interview Segment with Diamond Rings and Holiday Tunes – S08E15

With Diamond Rings (2012)

To cap off another year with great Canadian indie music. Ending the interview segment for 2012 happened to be Diamond Rings. It was quite the last minute as I encountered a problem from last week’s radio show. It was the second time to interview John O. aka Diamond Rings as he’s currently touring to promote his second album, Free Dimensional. I forgot how laid back and easy-going when I chatted with Diamond Rings. He was in Ottawa on Friday, December 7th and heard the show at Ritual Nightclub was sold out. Aside from the funny photo shown on top, I got a lot of “likes” when I posted the photo.
The audio of the interview will be posted below.

Summer Ends, Fall Begins & Interviews with Sara Lowes and Said The Whale – S07E02

Since I couldn’t get a photo to put up this entry. Played a Sally Yeh song called Fall Comes and Fall Goes (秋去秋來). I can’t believe the song is over 20 years now. It’s played towards the end of the September 21st radio show.
Due to circumstances, my radio show was live for 2 hours instead of the mix of pretaped and live for the one hour. Joining me for the first half of the show was Lauren and we got to count down the top 10 Canadian indie songs and talk about Arcade Fire winning the 2011 Polaris Music Prize. Also on the show was airing the interviews with Sara Lowes and Said The Whale. They were in Ottawa last Wednesday night. The one with Said The Whale was impromptu because I didn’t think of any questions but Ben Worchester was keen enough to do the interview. I stumbled on a friend’s blog as she wrote about Said The Whale and their documentary. If you listen to my interview, I mentioned about Winning America.
The entire documentary can viewed at this link [via CBC Radio3].
The interviews are posted on the audio/podcast section below.
I can’t wait to head down to Montreal for Pop Montreal from Thursday to Sunday. See you there
