January 20 – 23, 2012 on Window of Opportunity and Stoke the Folk

CKCU’s Window of Opportunity this week included my cd review of local duo Steel Moon. They had their cd release party at the NAC Fourth Stage on Saturday, January 21. It was wonderful. The show was even better than the cd – their warm personalities shone through, as well as their backing band members. They are rooted in folk rock but they go far beyond in blues, jazz and more.

The CD Review is available on last week’s posting in the Stoke the Folk version.

And for January 23

I’m starting a morning show on CKDJ at 6 am EST, in the regular CKDJ alternative-urban format. And of course, I’m returning to the CKDJ airwaves at 9 pm with Matt Frankie Francis.

Stoke the Folk is beginning a regional focus this week.  January 23 will give us Ontario artists.  Now we could easily fill a semester’s worth of shows of Ontario artists (like Amanda Putz does with Bandwidth on CBC). However, we only have so much ‘real estate’ on the CKDJ airwaves.

We’ll start with Stoke the Folk (January 23, 2012)

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
