First of all, I'm sorry there was no blog post on Wednesday. I wasn't feeling well last night. Much better today. My 4.7 readers can send me their get well wishes.
My friend Darrin Harvey is the host of an upcoming cable show on Eastlink Television. It begins on October 20, 2013 and runs through January 19, 2014. It is called East Coast Music Unplugged. It was recorded in Halifax during East Coast Music week in March of 2013 and promises to be excellent.
Each week in this 13 part series, Darrin interviews Atlantic Candian singers, songwriters and bands. The list of acts is as follows: Christina Martin, Charlie A’Court, Cam Smith, Alan Jeffries, Heather Green, Quake Matthews, Ian MacDougall, Gloryhound, Jenn Grant, Ben Caplan, David Myles, Justin Mahoney and Tim Chaisson.
These acts are also going to be playing unplugged, hence the title of the show. I am especially intrigued to learn that Gloryhound is going to be playing unplugged. I wonder if they will do this song in that format:
Yeah, there's a song you ain't gonna hear on Radio 956 or Lite 92.9. And, does Buddy give the finger in the unplugged version of the song? I have to know!
(And remind me to tell you about the time I referred to them as "Gloryhole" in a tweet. I gather that is something else totally unrelated to music.)
Darrin used to be a part of a radio program called "File 97" on the now-sorta-defunct Magic 97 (known as "File 168" across the hall from the other radio station) in which he would interview folks who were in the Annapolis Valley on a book tour or speaking tour or something. I remember he was a good interviewer then, and I look forward to seeing how his passion for music and performers will lend itself to this program.
I do not know if the program will be available online. Let us hope it will be.
Good luck, my brother. Me and my 4.7 readers will be watching with great interest!
