Well here we are folks. This is episode #1 of the UCanNow podcast.
I’m going to attempt to introduce you to as many unique Canadians as I can, and hope that you can take away something that might make you want to show your support beyond this podcast. Canada is rich in talent of all kinds – actors, directors, writers, musicians, businessmen, inventors… and the list goes on. The unfortunate thing is we are lax in our recognition of this talent until it goes away and finds success somewhere else.
In this episode, I talk about about punk rock music in the 1970s… the formation of the iconic band Arson, and get into the mind of singer/songwriter Rude van Steenes.
You can visit Arson online at http://arson-rock.com/
And you can find Rude on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/rudenoises
I’m not a big fan of Bob Lefsetz – I do read his posts now and again and I am a subscriber to his newsletter so I get them.. all of them. Many times I agree with Bob, many times I don’t… but it was refreshing to get his latest newsletter and a piece that extolls the virtues of Sarah Polley’s film Stories We Tell which is currently available on Netflix.
Sarah is one of our great talents and I personally have enjoyed watching her grow from a young waif to mature filmmaker and create truisms that are sometimes painful to watch.
Bob has a very large mailing list and I hope that his readers tune in… you can read his post here.
I thought I’d kick things off by saying thank you for dropping by. I’m currently prepping the show and gathering gear and hope to launch in the coming weeks. Next week I will showcase the start-up gear for anyone interested… not going to be doing in-studio interviews right now but rather going out on-location. I’m putting together a mobile podcast rig that I can take out to interviews so I can capture some cool photos of the locale to let you in on how things unfolded.
So stay tuned… I think this is going to be fun!
