    Bruce Allen on todays music biz & Doug Cox on Van Island Music Fest.

    Bruce Allen on todays music biz & Doug Cox on Van Island Music Fest.

    Welcome to the Long Weekend Edition of the Mulligan Stew Podcast...
    And because it’s a long weekend, we have a longer podcast – two of them actually.
    Starting things off is the birthday boy Bruce Allen – One of Canada’s most successful talent managers EVER!!
    Bruce and his world-class team are responsible for planning,  leading and supporting the careers of Bryan Adams, Michael Buble, Bob Rock, Jann Arden and The Offspring. When you get the attention of Bruce all bets are off. You can fire questions off in every direction. The thing is you have to be prepared to have the answers smack you upside the HEAD.
    I wanted Bruce’s thoughts on the loss of our mutual friend Red Robinson – The Last DJ.  And the loss of Gordon Lightfoot as well.
    Then we talked about the state of today's music business. Like throwing a steak to a pit bull.
    Bruce then launches into an update on the 2023 years of Offspring,  Jann, Bryan, Michael and Bob Rock.
    Rock has released an album with the late Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip. It's amazing. Bruce has that story as well..
    Happy Birthday Happy Bruce!!
    Bob Rock interview to follow soon.
    The second interview is with Doug Cox, the artistic director of the Vancouver Island Music Festival. July 14-16  in Courtney/Comox.
    Every year I’m fascinated by Doug’s artist lineups.
    This year the headliners are Sarah McLachlan, Rickie Lee Jones and The Bros. Landreth. He asked Roy Forbes to return to his BIM character and revisit the tracks from his Thistles Album.
    Two legends. Dave Alvin and Jimmy Dale Gilmore with The Guilty Ones.
    Here’s Doug  Cox with backgrounds on all those artists and more.
    NEXT WEEK – The Artistic Directors of Folk Festivals in Calgary, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Canmore. PLUS Terry Wickham reveals his lineup for Edmonton Folk Fest.
    Have a memorable weekend - tdm

    Paul Janeway-St. Paul and The Broken Bones

    Paul Janeway-St. Paul and The Broken Bones

    Can a 3-year-old change the direction of a band?
    This week the return of the force known as Paul Janeway – leader of  St Paul and the Broken Bones. Checking in from Birmingham Alabama.
    We’re going to be talking about their latest album Angels in Science Fiction
    Paul tells us it's a turning point for the band after 10 years together.
    Even though the core members are mostly unchanged,  this is not the soul band that swept over all of music in 2012 with the EP Greetings from St Paul and the Broken Bones.
    Now 5 albums later they’re taking their fans in another more introspective direction., The funk and groove can still be found but now Paul is writing and singing about being a father and his conversation with his wife about
    “do what kind of  world are we bringing our daughter into?” They had a daughter.
    Songs with lyrics like
    “Dust to Dust”
    “Try your best to make a difference. Starting with the people around you”
    Songs about denial, fear, and acceptance.
    There’s a renewed sense of spirituality throughout the album.
    One question I wanted to include was
    “how will these songs mesh live with the horn/soul band songs that you were playing over the past 10 years”.
    Lots of stories and discussions.
    Two things – they play the Saskatoon Jazz Festival on July 8
    And the Calgary Stampede July 9
    Her name is Marigold.

    Chris Waters (Globe and Mail) interviews Jason Priestley. Michal Mosny and TDM of Q&A

    Chris Waters (Globe and Mail) interviews Jason Priestley. Michal Mosny and TDM of Q&A

    Christopher Waters has been writing about wine for two decades. He is the wine and spirits columnist at The Globe and Mail, education director of IWEG Drinks Academy and a WSET certified instructor at the Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute, Brock University.
    For 21 years, he was the editor/co-founder of Canada's largest circulation wine publication, VINES, and author of the nationally syndicated column, Waters & Wine.
    An internationally recognized wine judge.  Chris has developed and conducted masterclasses and seminars and moderated panels for organizations, such as The Wine Marketing Association of Ontario, Wines of British Columbia, Wines of Chile, Wines of Germany and Wines of South Africa.
    That’s what the bio says.
    Here’s what it didn’t tell you.
    Anyone with a passionate interest in all things wine has always sought out the wine column in The Globe and Mail.
    It has a history of getting the facts and figures right.  With not a whiff of hype anywhere, the column becomes a tutorial that can be trusted and held close.
    Yes, there are times it completely geeks out and becomes a wine version of Wordle.  That’s to be expected because it's like a weekly master class on wine and wine culture.
    Chris Waters was the perfect person to take over the master class from retiring Beppi Crosariol.
    After tasting Q&A (Red Blend)  and Q&A MRV  (Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier) Chris requested a Zoom interview with myself, winemaker Michal Mosny (Winemakers
    Cut) and our partner Jason Priestley.
    [caption id="attachment_26785" align="alignnone" width="837"] tdm and jason
    Michal and I get to tell the story of how he was convinced to move himself and his wife from Slovakia to Oliver, BC after watching our wine program Hollywood and Vines.

    Michael Mosny
    After listening to the Zoom audio recording,  I realized I was really liking a  very open and revealing Chris Waters.  Have a listen as Chris talks about how he finds the magic in the wines he tastes, how the wine world is going through rapid changes and what makes a wine truly special and what can make it truly not!

    Ps.. Chris gave Q&A 91 Points and MSV 92 points. “truly exciting”
    Enjoy Chris Waters Globe and Mail Wine Columnist
    Thanks to Michal Mosny and Jason Priestley.
    (and Chad Oakes. Producer of H&V)

    AC Newman-The New Pornographers

    AC Newman-The New Pornographers

    AC Newman returns to The Stew with the 7th New Pornographers studio album Continue as a Guest.
    The New P’s have been acclaimed since forming in Vancouver 1997. 
    They were dubbed a Super Group. 
    They weren’t  so much super as stellar.
    A great blend of melodies,  hooks, word puzzles and fine harmonies.
    Pitchfork has described the band's sound as "peppy, gleeful, headstrong guitar pop",[3] while Stereogum called the band's debut album Mass Romantic as "one of the greatest and most immediate power pop albums ever rendered”
    I found Carl at home in Woodstock NY. Having followed the band’s early years in Vancouver,  we had lots to talk about.

The tradition continues!

TDM gave voice to rising indie artists earlier in his career and remains a conduit for the stories of those journeys, and for other artists too.

As a former university radio DJ, both in studio and at venues, be it interviewing Junkhouse, The Skydiggers, Blue Rodeo and others how did you aspire to be like TDM? Emote your genuine interest in and respect for the leap artists continually take and help them feel at ease sharing their stories.

You are the master TDM. Thanks for continuing to do what you do best!
