Best personal campus/community radio moment or experience of the year.
Near the beginning of the year I was to do an interview with BC’s Shane Philip, world-folk artist that plays a didgeridoo. He swung through town on the tail end of a tour to have a chat. There we sat at a coffee shop and my recording equipment died. Deader than a beetle killed pine tree. Fortunately we were able to go over to my friend’s commercial recording studio nearby, and record the interview there. It was a great interview and Shane even gave an impromptu performance. I listened to some very cool music, produced a fine showcase for CFBX and my show, and made a friend in the process.
Record I’m most anticipating in the new year.
I can hardly wait to hear what Alberta trio Sinistrio have up their collective sleeves. They are currently working on a new album, and I heard it was going well.
