    #293 Paul Linklater

    Paul Linklater is a guitarist/singer/songwriter whom I've had the pleasure of knowing for about 25 years. I first met Paul in Brandon Manitoba when I recorded his band "gigvest". He flew to Toronto to mix his album with me and eventually moved there to pursue a life as a professional musician. Apart from solo work, Paul plays in Dave Bidini's "Bidini Band". Paul also has been teaching guitar for most of his life. Paul is a good soul and I'm glad he's doing well in these crazy times!

    #292 Mikey Hawdon Fairmounts “Eik Namo” listening party

    Mikey Hawdon and I go back 20+ years when worked with his band 'the Inner City Surfers" on three different albums over the period of 5 years. When the surfers took an extended break, Mikey started a solo project by posting videos on Facebook. the first song I saw was "Spend the Night with Me". I immediately contacted him and we were recording what would become the "Unfinished Business" EP. Time went by and we are now releasing our 2nd LP with Clearview records. In the podcast we talk about the demos, the album recording and the out takes. enjoy!
