Veteran Kitchener/Waterloo music scene-sters, pub musicians and now podcasters: Jesse Webber & Jay Carraro, bring you humour and all sorts of wonderful Kitchener beloved fellow musicians, artists and more on their show “Kitchener Famous w/ Jesse & Jay”. What started off as a covid-era project has become yet another song from the heart from these guys, and it’s loaded with hooks and charm. Dear listener: If I’ve ever claimed to dedicate my show to just the hardcore fans and no-longer hope for approval, I’ve never meant it more than here in the last month. I mean, I DO love these guys and you SHOULD listen to their podcast.. but you’re not gonna get a prime and well promoted exposé on anything they do here, sorry-not sorry. You’re gonna get three longtime friends catching up and chatting about shit with a LOOSE interview-ish-like structure, which I always find more enjoyable anyway. You’re also gonna get some great local (to Kitchener) music by LoFi Mind, IAM5AM ft. Mary 5E, TayLynn and the brand new single by Jesse Webber “Brand New Day”. Episode art: a re-presentation of photo used for The Community Edition, with full credit to photographer Nick Stanley. https://communityedition.ca/kw-podcast-explores-local-fame/ Songs: “Things Aren’t Like They Used To Be” by Lofi Mind “I Dare Ya To” by IAM5AM feat.

117. Glodeane Brown

117. Glodeane Brown

2021-06-1657:32

I’m overwhelmed to think of all (“Culture Fancier” aka) Glodeane Brown’s done/is doing, for art and to the artist’s benefit, to the whole art community’s benefit. 5 years ago in March, Culture Fancier was born. It’s an amazing art blog for the Waterloo Region; spotlighting, showcasing and chatting with the artists (and others) behind every museum, gallery, novel, painting, installation, album, independent film and more, in the region & beyond.. Way to get your weekly output dwarfed, EVERY built-in art section in the region’s press, COMBINED! In fact, Culture Fancier has led to professional column gigs, as well as opportunities to cover art outside of the region.. it’s certainly gained Glodeane much deserved admiration among hundreds of artists whose work was turned on to people through the blog, and hundreds more who seek to have their work ‘culture-fancied’.. I just riffed that, it might catch on. In the time that the blog’s started and built itself into what it is now and always has been (fantastic), Glodeane completed a post-grad at Humber College for Arts Administration & Cultural Management, taken on various roles in CAFKA’s biennial (with all that’s involved between events and behind the scenes); CAFKA (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area) being a huge art exhibit spread across WR’s public space (I’ve seen it, it’s intense and amazing). Now that I’ve scratched the surface.. Did I mention that I’m lucky enough to know Glodeane, because I was also lucky enough to regularly share the stage with lovely singer/songwriters Christen Latham and Matt Lees at the dive-iest dive, the early-mid 2000s Circus Room? Did I mention she’s found a way to offer moral support and followed everything I’ve done creatively over the years since? Did I mention she once got debilitatingly anti-social (then) me on to the dance floor at a friend’s wedding back in the day - cause she’s that cool? Not to make it about the past, but as I wrap up TDS, I can’t go without shouting about how awesome my brilliant and hard-working friend is and always has been.. with all the gratitude I feel while typing it. Now you can listen to me say it all on iTunes or whatever and even more inarticulate!

Meet Daniel Hodgson, a worldclass (though hobbyist now) photographer and a vinyl enthusiast, not to mention an Australian/Canadian & KW-based friend of mine since early 2011. It was nice to catch up with Daniel and a chance to shoot the shit with him on a podcast, which features on it’s cover, a photo taken by him. We chat about KW, accents, photography and vinyl… which is always nice! Enjoy! Enjoy the wonderful music on this episode, including “Avenue B” by Vienna D’Amato Hall, “The Chauffer” by Warpaint & “DoYaThing” by Gorillaz. Produced, edited and hosted by Todd. V/O by Milo Axelrod.

In the fellowship of those who’d fall into the “arty kid” category, I’d like to present L.A.-based Chris Baldwin, a Visual Development Artist at Dreamworks TV and one heck of an indie musician. We met online as is with most of my West coast friends (I mean acquaintances, but I do heart all of’m) and in a post-Channel 101 event thing.. I could tell already that we’d have a rad convo about making shit. I give full credit to Chris, on the rad-ness. So listen, and find out how this super talented vis artist and new wave dream pop dude got started, and sees the art he makes. It’s padded by SWEET examples of his music-itude too!

In the immortal words of Blackstreet, “East side to the West side”, Patricia Tscharskyj (a trained & experienced photographer and assistant camera for tv/film) moved from New York to the south and ultimately to Los Angeles and fairly recently. MOST recently, Patricia’s found herself making dope shit for Frequency 101, with the show “Stripper Squad”. We met, as I have most of my fellow Freq’shows, over Zoom conferences and she was kind enough to grace TDS with her talented self. What more can I say? It was a delightful chat! Listening to it, that’s where YOU come in! We chat about Patricia’s creative life to date, Frequency 101, her awesome show Stripper Squad… and, what’s that you’re trying to tell me, Birdy? Hot gos'!? Oh snap! This episode is proudly padded with sweet tunes by Harriet Nauer, Mike Erb Trio and a full episode of Stripper Squad.

2021-05-1301:13:24

California’s Jim Garrett is a fellow 101’er whose relatively new work I was already digging upon whatever you could call my entry point.. I take it that we recognized each other immediately as creatives and Channel 101 fans and now we’re talking about EACH OTHER’s work in present tense, which is a nice trip. He’s a great fella, whose Channel shows “Quarantine” and “Being Jason Whetzell” are knock-out punch classics and who’s audio-only Frequency shows are top notch as well. This is really a big discussion about making stuff, pop culture, and the 101-iverse. It was a lot of fun. In the theme of the 101-iverse is some related tunes; upcoming guest Chris Baldwin’s dreamy synth music, under the name ‘Hot Club’, music by past 101 contributors as well as TDS guests Jonah Ray and Kali Kazoo.. ALSO you’ll get to hear a full Frequency 101 episode by Jim Garrett (starring Adam Garland, Erin Pearce, Andy Petruzzo, Jared Wagenstein). What a week!

2021-05-0554:50

Treephones is an artist’s artist and the “musical moniker” as it’s been written, of Stephen Trothen; though better described in our conversation. He’s putting out a beautiful concept album this Friday (May 7th) that you can listen to in any dimension and it will make you fall in love with music again.. PINK OBJECTS. If you’ve become jaded with music, I offer this to you as an example of someone at least STRIVING for genius, even if unintentionally. Now that I’ve let my emotionality set the bar super high, let me conclude this album description by adding that it’s something that you can put on and enjoy and it will only ask of you what you give it, it will only give you what you ask of it and it’s really nice. You’ll hear us talking in this and it’ll feature some songs from the album. If you’d like to know more, simply click the ‘Play’ button for this podcast episode.. seriously. Ontarian Stephen Trothen, is also a good friend whom I haven’t been in touch with until a few months ago, but have always kept a fondness for. We met as solo singer/songwriters in the late ‘00s during the death rattle of Myspace.. and I’m pretty sure I saw The Hangover with him. He’s as sweet a friend as his music is ear candy. Songs: “Matches”, “A Boarding Pass”, “A Map” & “Seeds” are all by Treephones, and from the album PINK OBJECTS; go visit Treephones on Bandcamp: https://treephones.bandcamp.com/ PINK OBJECTS will also be available on popular streaming platforms, and I trust you with the search box.

LA native Diana Wright is a writer among other things, a fantastic one to boot, who's work you can hear/read in such popular mobile games as Star Trek: Fleet Command and The Simpsons: Tapped Out aka made-for-mobile iterations of my childhood.. wonderful! With a background in improv and sketch comedy, my guest's more recent contribution to Frequency 101 (the audio only version of Channel 101) was a kick-ass show she co-created with Annie Girard, called CAVEMAN COVE. - - - I regret not exploring my fascination with writing and the 'writer's room' more in the past, having had all kinds of splendid writers on this podcast before. It is a newer fascination of mine and Diana was kind enough to take me on my first mega journey into it. Most importantly we get to know Diana, growing up, becoming a writer and how she and her (also a writer) husband are doing work-wise, during such things as a.. y'know... pandemic. This episode features some sweet Kitchener-Waterloo & Toronto indie rock and a full episode of Caveman Cove!

I'm honoured once again to chat with Actor, Writer, Director and so much more..Amy Walker. This time around (continuing from our chat on episode 91. re: short film 'Into Light') we took a deeper dive into the film-making process as well as the heart and mind of Soulfire Creations. I'm very glad I had the chance to explore with Amy: Where does her drive and passion come from? How does she approach doing such a wide variety of projects, roles, tasks? How many accents/dialects is she willing to grace my podcast with, right now?. This all gets answered, and then some, here on TDS. While you're listening and enjoying, please check out Amy's portfolio on the links/sites below; like, follow and share.

Part 1 with Abed (March 4th) if you haven’t heard it, was recorded on Feb 20th and I think it was a super fun chat to have about the pop-culture that astounded established our love of creating things, as well as the first instances of performing or recording those ideas. Going into the panel for Frequency 101 we agreed to re-convene on Feb 28th - where like a better podcaster, put a focus on Abed. We did a deep dive into his creative journey both in and out of career, and did a little reflection on the hows and whys of it all. You could say we pick up with the short “Friends & Lovers” and take you all the way to Frequency 101’s “Enter the Dark”. Here we are now with Frequency 101, Episode 8 - March 2021! You get to listen to 9 AWESOME mini audio shows (5 minutes or less) and out of those 9, you vote for the 5 you want to hear another episode by; cancelling the rest. Please don’t be a dick and listen to all 9 of the shows before you make your choices ; ) Listen to Frequency 101 here: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/frequency-101/id1437520566?i=1000513910047 Vote for your 5 favourite shows in the episode notes.

2021-03-1646:38

Kitchener/Waterloo’s Clarissa Diokno is a class act who’s payed many dues on the cover band stage, the karaoke stage (as both host and singer), has pursued acting and all matters of performing; I couldn’t be happier to chat with her after releasing her fantastic first original song. It just so happens that her debut single “Confusion” is a JAM, and naturally we discuss this. There’s a bit of a narrative starting in the dog days of Chainsaw nights in Uptown Waterloo, through the cover circuit, working in Los Angeles, and then back to KW, where in quarantine, this seasoned, silk-voiced and very down to earth ARTIST is still set on taking over the world. “Clarissa Diokno is a Singer-Songwriter who uses her music as therapy and connects with the listener through relatable lyrics of events in her life. Clarissa blends her smooth, soulful vocal style with the vibe and production of Pop and Contemporary R&B.” - from Clarissa’s official biography. Please enjoy our chat! You’ll hear Clarissa’s “Confusion” single, as well as some more JAMs by Warpaint.

106. Abed Gheith - Part 1

106. Abed Gheith - Part 1

2021-03-0401:08:44

Creator, writer, actor, phone-sexxer.. Abed Gheith (Los Angeles) is a lifelong story-teller (“Streetside” 1990s, Channel 101, Frequency 101) whose work in, and knack for story-telling, sense of humour, fusion of influences and more, I find undeniable. Just look at “Groove Fighters”, “Phone Sexxers”, “The Pop” and “Toon Wolf”… look at the Steve Perry character in “Yacht Rock”.. what about unforgettable pilots like “It’s Twissleton” and “The Muhammads”!? deny that!? I think NOT. As a not so un-remarkable footnote of course, his likeness and pop-culture library of a mind were loosely the inspiration for the NBC show ‘Community’s Abed character (see GVP ep. 6 for that story). Much like myself as a kid, Abed RPGd with friends, cassette-recorded audio entertainment and was entranced by the MAGIC of Disney and Star Trek mid-90s and before… this very specific set of things all together isn’t something I share in common with A LOT of people. Feel free to join us on that ride, I really enjoyed talking about it. Today, Abed and his longtime friend Sevan Najarian hold the current title for longest running show on Frequency 101 (Channel 101’s audio-only shindig) “Enter the Dark”,and through every type of terrain it seems, Abed follows his instinct to create worlds and tell stories! It would seem that comes with some interesting life stories! Listen and find out!

(lemme add, why not, Ducktales, Spongebob, Scooby-Doo, Community, Rick & Morty, Yo Gabba Gabba! and more…; wielding such musical TALENT - who’s work you’ll hear throughout this podcast and that i’ve been a huge fan of since she was the guest on one of my favourite podcasts, Jonah Raydio in 2013. Kali’s also a quarter of the Git Back Gang and a Channel 101 vet. Do you wanna hear this super-awesome kat and I chatting about animation design, music, video games, star trek, star wars, the beatles, the wilburys and whatever else we can get our hands on!? Why not!? I can’t tell you how much fun it was for me! Note: For the most accurate details re: Kali’s work in animation, IMDB has the most accurate presentation I can find.. linked below.

Hey! So instead of an abrupt slow-down of the podcast, I'm using my platform to chat about it for 9 breezy minutes. I realized after the fact that I completely disregard those who probably do as much editing as I've been doing, AND something else, or AND having kids... Maybe I am just lazy. The point!: slowing down the output of this podcast for me is not only necessary for my mental health, but it allows space finally, for me to be an ARTIST again. If I were chatting about this to NO ONE in the room, or hypothetical listeners, I probably wouldn't have made any sense.. so I'm joined here by a pal in L.A., funny-man, current primetime Channel 101-er and swell guy - Chad Rietschel!! Check out Chad's Channel 101 show Dan's Dance Revolution Check out my tribute songs to Channel 101 shows Such as "Rumspringa", "Breadtown" & "Nipple Sucking Aliens" Todd Donald on Bandcamp --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/todddonaldshow/message

I was introduced to the wicked hot music by a young Ontarian by the name of Riley Michaels. Riley is everything at around 20 y/o that I was most definitely not! He’s super talented at singing, writing songs and playing guitar, as well as articulate and charming.. so it was a pleasure to have Riley on the show, to chat about music, some of his influences (Prince, John Mayer, etc.), and a breakdown about making and presenting the video for his brand new single: “Turn Off The Lights”!!! *available now on all streaming/digital purchase platforms. Songs: “Turn Off The Lights” & “Now I Know” by Riley Michaels Riley Michaels on Apple Music | Riley Michaels on Spotify Riley Michaels Links: Riley Michaels official website Music video for “Turn Off The Lights” on YouTube Follow Riley Michaels on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter Produced, edited and hosted by Todd.

Brett Sheriff is a wonderful writer and performer, who’s been riding the wave of 2020 stumbling blocks in creative work, like everybody. I think his work in ‘Little Judd’s The Bachelor But With Dads on Channel 101 speaks for itself - so while looking forward to anything by that group or Brett as an individual, I think it’s safe to say that the result of effort (through all the challenges) will be worth the wait, and dynamite. Brett was kind enough to let me scatter the conversation in no particular, kind of even, order.. and I had a blast chit-chatting with’m! Brett grew up in Illinois, and now lives with roomates (fellow Judds) Chad & Chase, in Los Angeles. Forgive my little league bio writing style in that last paragraph, I’m not good at this stuff.

L.A.’s Kate Freund is a multi-talented and wonderful show creator, writer, director, actor and more. I fell in love with her shows on Channel 101 of course, such as: ‘Mega Bitch Meltdown’, ‘The Vacationaires’ and ‘Legend of the White Tiger’.. there’s so much, just seriously, check out the links below, do yourself a favour and watch/enjoy all of it. Outside of 101 is even more great work in various genres like the Alex & Ariel film ‘On The Rocks’, ‘Creepshow’, ‘The Sarah Silverman Program’, and the holiday short she JUST put out prior to our conversation - A Christmas Wish! You can also catch Kate as she was that night, on her husband Rob Schrab’s delightful SHV show Found Crap. As you’ll hear me say, I couldn’t get enough of hearing Kate talk about how much she loves what she does and who she’s gotten to/gets to work with.. I would venture to say they probably feel equally fortunate to know and work with HER. It’s entirely non-sequential and there’s some sweet songs in here to celebrate that this 101 legend, is the guest on EPISODE 101 of this podcast! Songs: “Losing My Mind” by Titanic Sinclair “Human Pile (Live at the Hi-Hat)” by Kali Kazoo “Syngenor” (Shock Feature Theater performance) by The Git Back Gang “Deathless” by Kali Kazoo “The ‘Bu Episode 8” by The Lonely Island Kate Freund Links: Kate Freund on Channel 101 Kate Freund on IMDB Watch Mega Bitch Meltdown on Channel 101 Watch The Vacationaires on Channel 101 Watch Le Typewriter on Channel 101 Watch Legend of the White Tiger on Channel 101 Watch A Christmas Wish, from 20th Digital Studio Produced, edited and hosted by Todd.

Justin Briner, 1/3rd of KW’s Pull The Plug Podcast (although I’m hearing things about a 4th ;), is a singer/songwriter whose made delicious solo/acoustic music and currently fronts a wicked 90s-saluting rock band called The Wilt Aways. We chat about our shared history on CJIQ, what it’s meant to be a part of PTP podcast for so long with Shannon and Justin G, making music of course!, as well as 90s Batman flicks and grabbing a coffee for relaxing vinyl record-hunt walks. Ps: WTF, TDS is 100 episodes old! Farewell listeners! JK. A small congrats to m’self though, no celebration, other than the ongoing joy and satisfaction of making the podcast I want to make. A salute for those of us who would like to be rich, but aren’t motivated to make things only in order to become rich. Ps: Update! It's actually official that Sarah Emm is now an official co-host of PTP, JUST SAW WHILE UPLOADING THIS EPISODE! AWESOME!
