Episode 71: Jamie Warren
We had a lot of fun in this episode speaking with (multiple) Juno nominated country recording-artist Jamie Warren, about the music industry as a whole, and the intricacies of a song. We learn of his initial interest in becoming an NHL player and a radio GM, only to win a song-writing contest that put him on the road, literally, to life as a touring musician. We eventually delve into raising children, teaching, and future projects in the works. We go out on a fantastic original tune by Jamie.
Episode 70: Don McDougall
A born drummer, Donnie knew he wanted to be a musician while watching Buddy Rich on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson at the tender age five.

Finally, we discuss the love of his life and getting married to a woman 12 years his senior while taking on the responsibility of two teenage children. Hesitant at first to do the podcast, we’re glad he decided to take a chance, and we’re sure you will be as well.

A lover of conversation, Dan’s humour shines thru in this one. Find out if he bares it all while playing one of the leads in the “Full Monty”.
