This week, I’m all giddy with glee about being the cool kid on the block with all of the hot new releases, most of ’em before anyone else. Sometimes being a radio weasel has its perks. But don’t worry, I’m not one of those mean kids who picks on others who are less fortunate; no, in fact I couldn’t wait to share these new releases with the listeners.

Last week we had hoped to hear from Kevin Welch to discuss his great new album with Kieran Kane and his work on the new David Francey CD, but it was not meant to be. This week, we got our act together and connected for a fascinating talk.

There’s a bountiful treasure of interviews waiting to behold, on this International Talk Like a Pirate Day, mateys.

First up, we set our sights on the good ship David Francey, who sails these seas on Tuesday with his good crew, Kevin Welch, Kieran Kane, and Fats Kaplan. That land lubber was wantin’ ta talk about his new CD, The Waking Hour, too. Well worth following a treasure map for.

Next, we spotted some scurvy dogs setting sail for Winnipeg’s muddy waters tomorrow night. Carolyn Mark & Ford Pier were aboard to wager a peace treaty. At ye old High & Lonesome Club, they’ll hitch their boat and unload a big chest o’ golden songs along with their crewmate Geoff Berner.

Recently, our crew pillaged a bounty of new music, including CDs from the likes of Mike Plume, Nathan Wiley, Luke Doucet, Chuck Prophet, and more. We’ll be crackin’ a big bottle o’ rum and sharin’ some chanteys from them salty dogs, too.

Well, blow me down! If that ain’t a richly rewarding sail on the good ship TTBTGH, methinks I’ll just have to walk the plank!
