Nov. 10/06: Interview Audio is now up on RadioZoom
Since John now describes me as the official “PR Babe” of the Podcast (on top of being the co-host) I thought it my duty to make something happen when he said he REALLY wanted to see the Sparta show. A couple emails later and we were sitting in the back room of Richard’s on Richards (again) interviewing Jim Ward of Sparta [official site][myspace]
The doors were at 9:00 but we were scheduled in at 8:00pm, leaving our house at 7:45pm we walked at a very fast pace to make it down to the club on time. I called the tour manager, Ed and he confirmed that everything was going smoothly, “Rebecca from Radiozoom.net – yep, we’ve got you with Jim at 8”.
Upon our arrival, Ed came out to greet us. Entering a nearly-empty Richards was a little trippy. There were cases, cables and equipment all over the dance floor as the two opening acts were getting ready for their sets. We were lead back into the same tiny room where we met with the guys from Aberdeen City [RadioZoom Interview]. It was Jim Ward, John, me and a microphone.
From there the podcast took off. We talked about everything from the new album, Threes, to politics, hometown memories and the health benefits of carrots. The interview will be available early this week on RadioZoom.net
On Tuesday Americans take to the polls. While I don’t really want to get into any political issues, I’ll still post this YouTube link, cause it’s just amusing as heck.
Update: I was just out on my lunch break (it’s so rainy I swear I saw someone canoe past me on the sidewalk *badum ching!*) seriously, what’s with GOLF umbrellas this season? It’s bad enough trying to maneuver down a sidewalk downtown on a SUNNY day, let alone a regular rainy day with regular umbies all around. But GOLF umbrellas? I passed about 10 within a block. Sheesh!
We play some great bands (with permission) on this episode and talk about the upcoming interview with Sparta. We also cover another edition of ‘Vancouver Trivia’ – testing John’s knowledge of the city. The site’s been redesigned slightly and some new features have been added to keep everyone informed and to make searching for old episodes an easy task.
I took the helm this time around and we were missin’ Dave-O somethin’ fierce. We giggled a lot, I think he keeps us in line.
We go â€˜Dave-lessâ€™ this episode as Alanah, JJ, John and Rebecca bring you this weekâ€™s discussion. The Ovechkins Capitals were in town on Friday and JJ shares his experience being at the game. From the awe-inspiring young Russians of the league, goalie showdowns, to shootouts.
Murmurs about the crazy schedules, that only bring players by once every election year, who weâ€™d like to see more of and who we could really do without.
Nashville handed us a ghoulish defeat last night while weâ€™re still getting used to the lines, players and Coach Viggyâ€™s words of wisdom.
