It's a radio version of a macaroni heart for Mom...
This week on the show, we chat with Ottawa musician/composer/actress/mom extraordinaire Sacha Gabriel (left, with son Shea and daughter Tate) about her many projects -- including her band My Tiny Circus -- and Shea and Tate weigh in on some on them, too. Sacha just finished composing the music for kids' e-book for iPad called Flora's Forest. It comes out at the end of the month -- you can check out the Facebook page here.
You'll also hear from Lucas Haneman and Kid Koala about how their moms influenced their musical careers... and hear a story from Emm Gryner about when she gave birth to her son, Ronan (you can find her awesome blog here).
This weekend might be special, but next weekend is MAY LONG -- and we'll be getting in the long weekend spirit with a mix of tunes perfect for the dock -- or the patio. Feel free to send me your favourite summer/long weekend tunes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll also see I'm now adding stings in the playlist (that's radio-speak for those quick musical bridges between segments on the show) in case there's a track you want to hear more of -- thanks to listener Angelina for that suggestion!
See you next week,
