Joe Keithley Burnaby City Councillor up for reelection and lead singer punk band DOA
Joe Keithley (S******d) is the leader of hard-core punk band DOA and has been since the late 70’s.
In 2008 The Vancouver Sun named Joe one of BC’s most influential people – of all time!
DOA played for benefits, rallies, protests, and anything with the word environment in it.
Joe and DOA still tour. 20 dates all across Canada in June and July of this year.
So it should come as no surprise that Joe is now Burnaby City Councilor Joe Keithley. It took him years to get voters' attention in Burnaby but now he’s no long shot, he’s running for re-election.
There’s a documentary film crew following him around..hoping to figure out how he finds the balance between being an angry rocker and a well-spoken politician.
One of the people is Beto O’Rourke – in Texas.
Joe’s s talking about affordable housing, human rights, Quality child care, helping the most vulnerable, and assisting seniors and the homeless. He’s just an all round great guy..and scary good on stage as well.
The Burnaby Election is October 15th I believe. If you can donate or support Joe’s fight...Please contact him at
Dr John 'Things Happen That Way'
New Orleans, Louisiana is one of the World’s greatest music cities.
Mac Rebennack was Dr. John, one of the singular faces and voices of New Orleans music.
A true leader in the studio, on the streets and on stages of the World, Mac won 6 Grammys and became friends with Ken Ehrlich, the long-time producer of the show.
Mac was planning future projects when his life was unexpectedly cut short in 2019. Now, 3 years after his passing, Things Happen That Way will see the light of day. The album, which features three brand new original compositions, an amazing reworking of Dr. John’s 1968 classic, I Walk on Guilded Splinters, and new interpretations of songs by Willie Nelson, Cowboy Jack Clement, Hank Williams, and The Traveling Wilburys was released on Friday.
Things Happen That Way marks the fulfillment of a long-time goal of the six-time GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter/pianist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, who first began plotting a country-inspired album decades ago. The album also features guest appearances by Aaron Neville, Mac’s long-time friend and frequent musical collaborator Willie Nelson, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
Our guest this week is Mac Rebennack’s and Dr. John’s good friend, Ken Ehrlich.
When Mac passed, Ken was asked to write the liner notes for the album and give a farewell speech at Mac’s Celebration of Life.
Ken paints a warm verbal picture of the man called Dr. John. Through his dark days of prison and drugs, breaking free of addiction to light up the stages of the world!
And he reads the closing paragraphs of his farewell speech.
Join us as Ken Ehrlich remembers the legendary Dr. John and tells the story of his last album Things Happen That Way
Nuela Charles Releases her self titled 4th Album
We welcome back to The Mulligan Stew and the Podcast Edmonton’s Nuela Charles. The last visit was just before the 2018 Junos. She had one of her 3 Juno nominations in her sights.
Her self-titled 4th album was released Friday. It’s the best yet.
Always impressed with her work ethic, passion for the writing and creating of her music, and the honesty with which she takes us through the process.
We’ve included three tracks in the Podcast
Don’t get It
Check out the rest of the Nuela Charles album. It's engaging and engaging!!
It’s about Nuela, her journey, and the power of being yourself.
Nuela was born in Kenya and raised in Switzerland, Canada, and the Bahamas, before settling down full-time in Edmonton, Alberta.
I asked Nuela if the influences of those countries could be found in her music but she surprised me by saying “I’m a rock/pop artist. I grew up on rock. That’s what I like’
She has also shared the stage as direct support for some of Canada’s musical icons including Sam Roberts Band, Jann Arden, and Stars. Additionally, she has been nominated for multiple awards including three JUNO Awards for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year. This year the SOCAN Foundation announced Nuela as a winner of the second annual Her Music Award.
Nuela has amassed over 4 million career streams to date, and placements on hit shows such as Jane the Virgin, Tiny Pretty Things, House of Lies, The Order and Finding Carter.
Lake Street Dive-New Album 'Fun Machine: The Sequel' A conversation with Michael Calabrese'
Guest Michael Calabrese – Lake Street Dive.
New album Fun Machine – The Sequel Just out Friday.
It's 10 years since their breakout album Fun Machine.
They're even looser and cooler 1- year later and waaaaay more popular.
The band described the new EP: "Imagine you walk into your favorite local dive bar and Lake Street Dive is on stage, doing our regular weekly gig for $5 a head. These are the songs we'd be covering there and how we'd be playing them. Some deep cuts, some sentimental favorites, and some (hopefully) epic crowd pleasers.”
Covers of Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, etc..but all with a cool groove, great singing, and bang-on arrangements.
Hugely popular – this is the second visit to The Mulligan Stew Podcast from Michael Calabrese, original member and drummer of Lake Street Dive.

The Kids In The Hall
Dear Podcast Peeps
We’ve been trying to come up with an excuse for re-running the Kids in the Hall Podcast..
Why would we want to be listening – Again - to the dialogue between myself, Bruce McCulloch, and Scott Thompson.
Maybe if it were Mark McKinney, Kevin McDonald, or the wonderous Dave Foley it would be sexy fresh, alive and legal.
Keep in mind that somebody from KITH had to work the “secondary markets” and Scottie and Bruce drew the short straws.
Please enjoy this encore performance on Mulligan Stew Podcast and don’t let it spoil your weekend.
A conversation with Mariel Buckley
We have all watched Mariel find her voice - on stage and in the studio.
She’s played backyards, living rooms, and stages just large enough for one.
So you just have to be happy for her success.
#1 on the CKUA Top 30. Opening for The Bros. Landreth.
This Summer all over America and starting in September, London, the UK, and then Europe.
Mariel closes The Stew this Saturday... The interview is a Hoot. But we do talk about standing your ground and not taking any grief from the music business. She certainly appreciates the support that we’ve given her on air and off.
What goes around comes around..#1 on the chart. #1 in our hearts.
