Podcast: June 20, 2021 w/Andy Maize, Jason Schneider, Mark Logan, Lynn Jackson

Episode #894

Friday, June 18, 2021 marked five years since we lost our friend and namesake artist, Paul MacLeod. This show started as an avenue for talented artists like Paul to get some of the exposure that they so deserve. Paul was a friend and an inspiration and like a lot of people, I miss him and wish he could still be here. I put together a tribute to Paul for my other show, Fly with your Shadow, which I hope you’ll check out at flywithyourshadow.com or on the streaming service of your choice. Although that one was the longest episode of the show ever, I had much more left over, and it only seemed fitting that the tribute would spill over onto the show that he gave a name to. Today we’ll hear from Andy Maize of Paul’s former band Skydiggers, Jason Schneider, Mark Logan of Busted Flat Records, and Lynn Jackson. They’ll tell you which of Paul’s songs they loved the most and which of the hundreds of cover versions that he could perform were their favourites.

I’ve been super busy with that, so not much time to look up new music or even get through my Record Store Day purchases, so not much on the new side here, but I did find a few. The big news of the week is the imminent return of live music in Winnipeg, as The Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club announced their outdoor summer concert series at Blue Note Park! That lineup of locals is stellar and well worth looking forward to, so I fit in as many highlights as I could today. I hope to see you there!
