Ep. #53: Casey Mecija on #ProjectLiftPH + Jonathan Goldsbie on Mayor Rob Ford

Casey Mecija is a musician and artist originally from Brantford, Ontario but currently based in Toronto, where she gained renown as the lead vocalist in a band called Ohbijou. Mecija is also of Filipino descent and has been raising awareness about the devastation in the Philippines, wrought by typhoons Haiyan and Yolanda. On December 4, she and her sister Jenny, also of Ohibjou, are taking part in #ProjectLiftPH, a benefit concert at the Great Hall to raise funds for the stricken region.

Jonathan Goldsbie is a staff writer at NOW magazine in Toronto where he writes about politics, media, local news, and more. As the situation with Mayor Rob Ford and Toronto City Council becomes increasingly surreal and disturbing, Goldsbie’s twitter feed has been indispensable, as he provides biting, insightful coverage of virtually every aspect of “the Mayor” and his brother Doug have been up to.

James is a member of the popular Toronto band Ohbijou who’s also noted for his work as an emerging home-rock audio engineer. A former Guelph resident, he’s helped to oversee a brand new compilation showcasing some of the most talented people in a community of musicians in Toronto.

The double-album came out last week; it’s called Friends in Bellwoods II and has already been praised by critics and fans alike. I’m pleased to ask James all about it on this week’s show,

Remember, if you can’t tune in live at 8:05 AM EST on 93.3 FM or www.cfru.ca to hear this appearance by James Bunton, you can download an mp3 of it for up to 30 days here.

thanks,
