Iconic Canadian broadcaster Terry David Mulligan has conducted some truly memorable interviews over the span of his 50 year career. The Mulligan Stew podcast features some of Terry's best interviews, past and present. Expect intimate and engaging conversations with compelling characters from the world of music, film, wine, food and beyond.
Devin Cuddy & New Album 'Dear Jane'
The Mulligan Stew Podcast Guest is Devin Cuddy. (Devin Cuddy band)
Son of Jim Cuddy and very definitely his own man.
Jim has said, on this very podcast, that he offered to school Devin and son Sam on the fine art of songwriting and playing but the guys went their separate ways.
Now, Jim says he’s very impressed with their growth and creativity.
They’ve been singing together for years but just casually at fundraising events. Devin talks about a maritime tour they just did.
Devin has released his first new music in 5 years. The album is called Dear Jane – with a reference to Hotlips Houlihan on the Mash TV series.
The album is a soulful mix of New Orleans, honky tonk, roots and Randy Newman. Devins originals are storytelling taken to another level. He’s become his own storyteller.
Devin is creating his place in Canada’s music world, just like his Father.
One of the great surprises is Devin’s cover of Barney Bentall’s hit Come Back to Me. Barney sings on the track. Barney, Jim and Devin have been friends a long time.
Devin says he’s been waiting to sing these songs for 5 years. Should be a great 2024 for The Devin Cuddy Band.
Tracks are included in the podcast.
Robbie Revisited and the 47th Anniversary of the Last Waltz
Robbie and look back at Nov 25 1976 and the final concert by The Band at the Winterland Ballroom in SF.
Called The Last Waltz.
This is a combination of 2 interviews I did over the past few years
The Trans Canada Highwaymen
It’s like having The Beatles on Saturday’s Mulligan Stew. But you can only have two. Do you want Ringo and Paul or George and John?
Saturday our guests are Steven Page (BNL & Steven Page Trio) and Chris Murphy (Sloan).
The other members of TCH are Moe Berg (Pursuit of Happiness) and Craig Northey (odds and SP Trio)
Each leads his own group but they got together to sing covers of each other’s music. Then the K-Tel idea came along. For younger music fans – K-Tel albums were Canadian hits crammed into 8 tracks, cassettes and albums. With garish labels that you couldn’t miss in your local store or gasoline station. Great hits – horrid packaging. Which is why the guys covered the best hits and copied the artwork. Steven makes the point that they loved these hits because they were Canadian. They were ours. Our American friends had never heard these songs but to us they were Northern memories.
They each take turns singing the lead vocal and back each other up.
Covering hits by The Guess Who, Joni Mitchell, Paul Anka, April Wine, Bim (Roy Forbes), Lighthouse, Poppy Family etc.

Tom Cochrane Songs & Stories.The Duo. Canada West Tour
In the spectrum of popular music in Canada, which is as wide as the country, Tom Cochrane falls somewhere between an electrified Gordon Lightfoot and a solo Gordon Downie.
Between the universal prose of Leonard Cohen and the blood passion of Tom Wilson.
Three times we went to the war-torn fields and roads of Africa for World Vision and became lifelong friends. That’s what seeing men, women and children dead or dying will do to you. You seek humanity. Tom’s got humanity in spades.
He came back from the first trip under a heavy dark load and sought out the only thing that he knew would lift him up. Music. He wrote a song called Life is a Highway. It became an anthem for millions. All lifted up by his music.
Tom Cochrane is heading back West now. The tour is called Duo.
Friday night in Medicine Hat, Saturday night in Edmonton (Expo Centre)
Then to the coast and a complete tour of Vancouver Island.
Sunday Campbell River
Monday, Nov 20 – Duncan (in the Cowichan)
2 guests Jeremy Dutcher and Susan Tedeschi
Polaris/Juno Winner Jeremy Dutcher guests on Mulligan Stew. Brings New Album.
Jeremy Dutcher has the smarts., look, feel and sound of a star in the making.
The Polaris Prize and Juno Award Winner has released his first album in 5 years.
Motewolonywok is out now.
Jeremy just finished a tour through the West. He's now headed to a Nov 8 date at Nat Arts Center in Ottawa and Dec 9 at Massey Hall.
The new album marks the first time Jeremy has written and sung in English.
We talk about his creative process and translating indigenous stories into poetry and lyrics.
His voice is pure and as he says in the interview "my life is an open book"
Oct 14 - Susan Tedeschi (Tedeschi Trucks Band) Celebrates the 25th year of her second solo album Just Won't Burn. (1998)
It kick started her career as a female blues singer/player/writer and sold outstanding numbers. Susan was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist. Rave reviews followed - comparing her to Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt.
Speaking of Bonnie, Susan absolutely nails John Prine's Angel from Montgomery which Bonnie made famous. John told Susan it was his favourite version.
Shortly after releasing Just Won't Burn, Susan was to meet and fall in love with Derek Trucks and the rest is music history.
The new re-release also has outtakes, alternate takes and two of her songs re-done live in New York by Tedeschi Trucks.
Along with Dave Grohl, Gloria and Emilio Estevan, Susan was honoured by The Smithsonian Institute for "distinguished contributions to the advancement of areas of interest to the institution"
Barney Bentall (Cariboo Express)
This weeks terrydavidmulligan YouTube is a tour with music from the heart.

Barney Bentall writes his own introduction. This was his newsletter a week ago.
Hi ya all. Gearing up for the Cariboo Express shows. Depending on how we mark the birth of this whole thing, it’s the 18th or 19th year! I think for all of us that play in this big ol’ bad ass band, it is a musical highlight of our year.
With the help and hard work of some worthy charities, we’ve managed to raise over 5 million dollars over the years.
Here are the dates:
Come on out! There are always great guests that show up along with all the regulars. For those of you in the Toronto area, spread the word. This will be our second year and we want to keep coming back and develop what we have going out west. We are supporting Classroom Champions at the Glenn Gould show. Cheers and see you soon! Barney
