What am I doing inside on this first gorgeous day since mid-week? Well, as somebody who gets on fellow bloggers for not updating their sites more often, I was about to start whipping myself. Plus, I just completed an email to Gail Zappa in an effort to get her on the air next week to discuss the upcoming Zappa plays Zappa concert and the recently released DVD on the making of two hugely important albums of all-time, not just the 1970's: Apostrophe (') & Over-Nite Sensation.
I'm having a great time. Who wouldn't want to hang out in Montreal for the month of July? Will tell all when I'm back in August.
Hi-lights include Van Morrison & Bob Dylan back to back at Place des Arts during the Jazz Fest, Buddy Guy at Metropolis wading into the crowd and buying a round of shots for everybody at the bar closest to the stage and Shane Murphy's raucous cd launch on friday the 13th in front of an over-capacity crowd that included Habs GM Bob Gainey.
Low-light? The death of one of my earliest hockey heroes John Ferguson. I had the privilege of interviewing Fergy many times through the years. Stay tuned for an in-depth tribute when I get back on the air.
Looking forward to director Todd Haynes' take on Bob Dylan. The Biopic "I'm Not There" features several different actors playing Dylan at various stages of his career, including Cate Blanchett. Check this out, it might have been filmed in Rawdon:
Back on the air Wednesday August 8th. Enjoy the sun.
