It's the May Long Weekend...
And to celebrate that extra glorious day of freedom, Bandwidth brings you the May Long Mixdown -- an awesome, all-Ontario playlist of tunes to get your summer started.
We've got an interview with Maylee Todd -- her mix of disco, funk and soul is the perfect addition to any May Long mix. Next month, she'll be doing a month-long residency on Toronto Island, which is a pretty cool way to start the summer. And if you're wondering about that lion dress I mentioned in the interview, you can find it here in Maylee's video for Aerobics in Space.
Ottawa alt-rock band Loon Choir has a new album, Fire Poems, out June 2nd -- we chatted with Derek, Kathleen and Brad (L to R) for a preview. If you're in the Ottawa area, you can hear a preview of the new album on Sunday, May 20th at the Arrow and the Loon Pub. It all starts at 7 pm, and I heard there will be free corn on the cob... delicious. They've also got their CD release party at the Rainbow Bistro in Ottawa on June 2nd -- for more info, check out their CBC Music page.
!!! FREE STUFF ALERT!!!
You can win an AWESOME BANDWIDTH GRAB BAG (a mix of CDs and something crafty by yours truly) just by writing into the show this week by midnight on Wednesday, May 23rd. Tweet or Facebook or email whatever pleases you -- your thoughts on this week's show, a request, even a haiku... and you could have some sweet new music coming yer way.
