The Fred Eaglesmith “Will He or Won’t He” Show

Listeners to this show know that one of my favourite singer/songwriters of all time is undoubtedly Fred J Eaglesmith. And he’s a fascinating guy, too. So I’ve always wanted to have a long talk with him and get him on the show. Well, for one reason or another, whenever I’ve tried to connect with Fred in the past, it hasn’t happened. This time, he was in Winnipeg on a Sunday, so I wasn’t about to let him get away so easily. I thought I had it all lined up. But, did he or didn’t he show?

Also on the program was a special live in-studio visit by American singer/songwriter Josh Ritter. He’s currently on tour with Sarah Harmer, and he was nice enough to stop by the studio to talk, perform live, and play some songs from his great new album “Hello Starling.”

For the most part, the same show that you know and love (I hope); new releases, upcoming shows, the best shows of the past week, etc.

In the last half hour, however, one more valiant attempt at converting a whole new crop of Rheostatics nerds. Can’t wait to see that band again, October 30 at The West End. Of course, some small-minded folks can’t wait ’til then because it means I’ll stop playing so much Rheostatics on the show. Small minds probably don’t deserve to be enlightened, but I try!
