    Episode 56: Braden Lam

    Episode 56: Braden Lam

    The young singer-songwriter Braden Lam has already got a pair of EPs under his belt, which he made in between getting a degree at Dal, starting his own business, and falling in love. For the holidays he's dropped a fresh cover of Joni Mitchell's "River," and stops by the
    show to talk stalled momentum, the musical ice age caused by the pandemic, why land acknowledgments are important to him, and his slate of December shows.

    Episode 55: Steve Murphy

    Episode 55: Steve Murphy

    The legend Steve Murphy will retire from on-air life on November 30, but not before stopping by to chat about the state of journalism past and present, big stories from Nova Scotia's history, and whether he and Tara will go to driver's ed together. The CTV icon loves a
    longform interview and is a choice one himself, as you'll hear here.

    Plus brand-new holiday music from Catherine MacLellan.

    Episode 54: No, It's Fine

    The Halifax indie-rock quartet No, It's Fine has released its second pandemic project—the first being a collection of covers that dropped in March—in the form of the full-length album I Promise. Mastermind Cailen Alcorn Pygott visits The Golden Palm to chat Cancon, words versus melody (and he uses a lot of words), and the influence of the Philadelphia scene on his band. Plus we hear two new tracks and hey did you hear Sarah Harmer is finally coming back to town?!

    Episode 53: Villages

    Episode 53: Villages

    The trad quartet Villages recorded and put out its debut EP, Upon the
    Horizon, in the midst of the pandemic and subsequently had its release
    show rescheduled twice. Since then they've already made a full-length
    but now is the time—specifically November 13 at the Marquee—to
    celebrate those songs. Matt and Travis Ellis—cousins, not brothers, as
    Tara learned live on air, after 15 years of writing about them—drop by
    to talk about the recording process, the ways they access the Celtic
    side of themselves, and how their indie-rock band Mardeen is not
    necessarily over.
