Shannon Rose, Royal Wood, and... Amanda's back!

meg and amanda.JPGAmanda Putz is back in the host's chair this week, which means a special crossover week where Amanda (left) and I (Meg, right) worked on the show together! It's an auspicious occasion, the last time our paths crossed on Bandwidth was when I was an intern three years ago... If we look happy but tired in the photo, it's because we've been hard at work putting together a great show for you!


I stopped by for a quick studio chat with Amanda, and brough along one last treat for the show: a 90-second egg from Dave Merritt of the Golden Seals... find out about the first song he ever wrote (though he won't divulge the story behind it!)


shannon rose.jpgThis week, you'll also meet Ottawa singer-songwriter Shannon Rose (right). Her album, Seasons, is inspired by just that -- so it only made sense for Amanda to chat with Shannon outside in the infamous Ottawa cold (but don't worry, you can listen to from the comfort of your living room!)


You'll also hear a live session from singer-songwriter Royal Wood, who's gracing the National Arts Centre in Ottawa tonight -- if you can't make the show, this is the next best thing! You can also hear the full session online at CBC Music by clicking here.


And that's about it for this week -- I'm continuing on to my new CBC assignment (details coming later) but willl pop in to Bandwidth every now and then! Amanda will be back on the blog next week.
