Famous Lost Words” unearths the greatest interviews of all time. Hosted by songwriter and legendary MuchMusic Veejay Christopher Ward and longtime CHUM radio producer (and archivist) Tom Jokic, “Famous Lost Words” is a weekly podcast on the iHeartRadio Canada app. It’s a deep dive into the extensive iHeartRadio archives – featuring classic interviews that haven’t been heard since they first aired.

    807 - Madonna! Pretenders! Zappa! TJ vs The VJ!

    807 - Madonna! Pretenders! Zappa! TJ vs The VJ!

    This week – a 2005 interview with Madonna as she promotes her album “Confessions On A Dance Floor”.  Madonna is predictably smart and passionate about her music, but she can also be a bit cranky.   WARNING – this interview contains perhaps the most awkward moment in FLW history.

                Then, a wonderful ‘80s interview with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders. Chrissie talks about the influences of the ‘60s on her music, how motherhood affected her life and how her anger with the world is a motivating force.  It’s  a great chat with the great Pretender.

                Also, we have some weird and wonderful clips from the legendary Frank Zappa. Frank is both strongly opinionated and very clever in these. Christopher has been waiting a long time to play them for you!

                And we finish off the show as Christopher and Tom go toe-to-toe on another edition of the epic smackdown known as TJ vs The VJ!

    806 - Tina Turner! Cher! Melissa Etheridge!

    806 - Tina Turner! Cher! Melissa Etheridge!

    This week: an extraordinary 1989 interview with the legendary Tina Turner. Tina talks about her rise to fame, how her stage act was her own personal fitness routine, how she chooses her songs and whether or not she considers herself sexy.

                Then, a fun 2003 chat with Cher during her first farewell tour. Cher discusses the highlights of her stage show, what she loves about her fans… and why the cops were called when one of her wigs went missing from the tour! It’s an hilarious interview with Marilyn Denis and Roger Ashby.

                And finally, the incredible Melissa Etheridge from 1996, when she was promoting her new album “Your Little Secret”. She tells us the charming backstory of the album’s title as well as the inspiration behind her first hit, “Bring Me Some Water”.  Melissa also explains how she managed to “un-tabloid” her personal life by being so open about it.  And finally she talks about performing her Janis Joplin tribute at “Woodstock 25”.

                Plus, Christopher and Tom talk about the greatest debut singles of all time, from “I Want You Back” to "More Than A Feeling" to “Baby, One More Time”.  (And for some reason, Tom feels compelled to sing “Rock Lobster”, but you can fast forward past that part.)

            Famous Lost Words, hosted by Christopher Ward and Tom Jokic, is heard in more than 100 countries worldwide and on radio stations across Canada, including Newstalk 1010 Toronto, CJAD 800 Montreal, 580 CFRA Ottawa, AM 800 CKLW Windsor, Newstalk 1290 London, 610 CKTB St Catharines, CFAX Victoria, AM1150 Kelowna and 91x in Belleville.

    802 - Keith Richards! Cyndi Lauper! Steve Miller! (plus more Keef!)

    802 - Keith Richards! Cyndi Lauper! Steve Miller! (plus more Keef!)

            This week: an amazing 1993 backstage chat with Keith Richards. Keith is in his glory fronting The Expensive Winos. In fact, you can almost hear the dread at the prospect of returning to The Stones!  Keith talks about the joy of touring, how “God joins the band” at outdoor concerts and the time he taught Mick how to play “Gimme Shelter”.  He also talks about his history in Toronto, including the time he was arrested for heroin.  PLUS, at the end of the episode, we feature a bonus 1979 interview with Keith and Mick Jagger backstage after the Stones played two shows as part of Keith's sentence for the drug bust.

              Cyndi Lauper is one of the most charming and fun people to be around.  In 2003, she chatted with Roger Ashby and Marilyn Denis in a conversation that has to be heard to be appreciated. Cyndi talks about her influences, performing on the Cher farewell tour, and the time her 5-year-old son wandered onto the stage while she was singing.

              And we finish off with a mid ‘70s interview with Steve Miller, at the peak of his popularity.  Like his music, Steve is very direct in this chat.  But it’s obvious he doesn’t have a lot of time for the concept of fame.  He’s more worried about his chickens!  He also expounds upon his theory that hippies almost ruined his beloved San Francisco.
