The Interview and Performance with Paterson Hall – S08E35

With Paterson Hall
Hey friends, Candice here bringing you a quick recap of April 17’s edition of WildWorks.

Today we decided to switch things up a little. Usually we like to chat with bands at venues and pre-record our interviews, but today we were lucky enough to get a band live and in-studio. Local band Paterson Hall joined us in CKCU Studio B today, and not only did we have a good talk, but we also got to hear some live music from them on-air at CKCU. Today we heard “On the Shoulders of Giants,” “Time Travel” and “I’m a Lion.”
Interesting little factoid – “I’m a Lion” is a reference to Tyrion Lannister, a character from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Awesome!

Paterson Hall, a six-piece band based here in Ottawa, also has a very strong connection to Carleton University. All six members are Carleton students, and they juggle both school and the band on a regular basis. And while they’ve only been playing together since November 2012, they’ve already released three songs and were happy to say they have an EP in the works for this summer. They’re playing this Friday, April 19 at 9:00 p.m. at Avant-Garde Bar as part of a Showcase Your Band event. Thanks again to Paterson Hall for swinging by, especially in the midst of exams!

Elsewhere on the show, we also heard from some JUNO Award nominees, as the JUNO Awards are scheduled for this Sunday, April 21 in Regina, Saskatchewan. Michael Bublé will be hosting.

We played tracks from Yukon Blonde, Grimes and Japandroids, all of whom have got nods at the Junos.

And before we heard from Paterson Hall, as always, we started with the Wild 10 Countdown. This week saw Victoria artist Chris Ho take the top spot with “Story of the Flood,” from his album, City of Dust. The album has a great summer pop feel to it.
You can find the countdown here. (Note: Songs played in the first part of the show are listed in the countdown blog).

The Interview with Minus the Tiger, Tribute to Leslie Cheung (Nine Years) & Being Filmed – S07E32

March is ending in a few days and this week’s radio show was filled with a lot materials from the first part to the live part of the show. DJ Digs returned to the show and Lauren is there as usual.
After the top 10 countdown from the first hour, we played the local acts that are performing at JunoFest and then played the favourite bands and musicians who are nominated for the Juno Awards.
The live part of the show had the interview with Minus the Tiger from the Netherlands and the yearly tribute to Leslie Cheung. April 1, 2003 was when it happened and it’s now nine years since his tragic death. He is still missed among Hong Kong fans and abroad.
This year’s tribute was a bit shorter than previous editions. It’s still nice to play his hits from Monica and others.

The fun part to this week’s show was The Charlatan coming in to shoot video (their second attempt) and giving them a glimpse on how we prepare and going live for the radio show. It was great to have someone from The Charlatan come in and check out my radio show as I try to make it fun in playing good music. Aside from that, the written article on myself and the radio show is posted at the Charlatan over at this link.
This week’s playlist has the live part of the show posted there. You can go over at this link. Don’t forget to listen to the interview with Minus the Tiger.
Have a good week!
