Ep. #305: Richard Laviolette

Richard Laviolette is a very talented singer, songwriter, and musician from Guelph, Ontario. Originally from Tara, Ontario in Bruce County, Laviolette has been making some of the most affecting, outspoken, and catchy folk and rock music to emerge in this century. His new album is a lovely and reflective one called Taking the Long Way Home, which is out March 10 on You’ve Changed Records. Here, Richard and I discuss his past work, his time in Guelph, the recent loss of his mother, his strong family bonds, the notion of home, his new album, and much more. Sponsored by the Bookshelf, Pizza Trokadero, and Planet Bean Coffee.

Ep. #304: Tommy Stinson

Tommy Stinson is a legendary musician who currently resides in upstate New York. Originally from Minneapolis, Stinson is a founding member of the Replacements and went on to form bands like Bash & Pop and Perfect, as well as joining Soul Asylum and Guns N’ Roses. Though Bash & Pop broke up in 1994 after releasing the Friday Night is Killing Me LP a year earlier, Stinson has re-activated the moniker for an excellent and spirited new record called Anything Could Happen and is touring around the world over the next few months. In a huge honour for me, listen to Tommy Stinson and I have a conversation about politics, Bash & Pop, Paul Westerberg and the Replacements, Axl Rose and Guns N’ Roses, and much more. Sponsored by the Bookshelf, Pizza Trokadero, and Planet Bean Coffee.
