Welcome back! Here we are, part way through April. And we have possibly a first. This week mid show I read some listener feedback that came through our Telegram group about last weeks show. This is likely the most extensive feedback I have gotten in not in forever, in a very long time. So thank you Jack!
It’s also been a crazy week of losing my 2 week retail job, and knowing I won’t be able to get EI again and being super stressed out about keeping a roof over my families head, paying bills, having food. I’m sure every musician out there who doesn’t have a “back up job” knows just what I’m talking about.
But anyways, here’s this weeks show with all kinds of great music.
- Jiants – Some Kind of Looser – Toronto ON
- The Long War – Robot Heart – Vancouver BC
- Coloured Tongues
– Wasted – Vancouver BC
- Steve Paul Simms – Blues for Back Alley John – Toronto ON
- Shannon Dooks – Doubts – Toronto ON
- Deanna Faye
– Reassure – Toronto ON
Thank you listeners for taking the time to listen to my show. Thank you Bands, Musicians, and promoters for sending me music. I don’t talk on the show that much about my personal life, as I’ve always felt the show was to feature and talk about Canadian Bands and musicians. It’s been 3 years now since I left a safe secure job. I was missing out so much on family time as I had been since 2011 when I starting working jobs that were mostly evenings only. I wanted time with my family. Sadly the job I left for didn’t last, and all the temp positions I managed to land didn’t turn into anything long term or permanent. Add in as I was about to start looking for work, my husband of over 20 years was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. Yes STAGE 4, before the age of 50 where you are normally tested for prostate cancer. Now here I am, also dealing with Covid 19. A high risk household, and Covid. So that brings up to me starting the patreon page for this show. But, if you can’t manage a monthly Patreon donation, please consider a one time donate to his fund Help John Fight Cancer. Donations can be done anonymously. Every penny goes to bills, keeping a roof over our head and food on the table. If you can manage a monthly patreon donation the site is: IR Canada Patreon Perks are listed on the site and start with shout out Thank-you’s on the show and social media pages.
