Ep. #5: Exclaim! Editor James Keast at a Blue Jays game

My friend and colleague James Keast invited me to a Jays game on Sunday and it seemed like a great place for us to talk about jocks vs. music nerds, his work at Exclaim!, his role at the Polaris Music Prize and tips for jurors, his take on Arts & Crafts and their Field Trip show, his recent vacation to Prague, this idiot Lawrence who sat behind us and would not shut up, the Rolling Stones, NXNE this week and more. You’ll hear all of this from innings seven to nine, Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays, June 9, 2013.

This week:

ford2

 

Is Mayor Rob Ford beyond sympathy? Have these allegations of substance abuse humanized him in some way? Musician, author, and Toronto citizen Dave Bidini says no and pretty much no.

 

 

 

 
A new supergroup called the Good Family crosses generations, bringing the Good Brothers and the Sadies together for a new LP and shows at the Starlight in Waterloo on May 30 and the Casbah in Hamilton on June 1. I speak to Bruce Good and his son Travis Good about this.

 

 

 

 

Exclaim! Summer Fest Guide

 

It’s festival season and Exclaim! Magazine just published an extensive guide to music fests across Canada. Editor Carly Lewis tells us more about what’s happening there.

 

 

And the Rolling Stones played the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on May 25. Stones fan and Hillside Festival Artistic Director Sam Baijal gives us a report on the show and talks about why some Stones tickets are $1500 each!!!!!!!!!!!?!
