Mid-Movember with Downchild, Gentleman Reg, Jack Pine

  • Today on the show: MEN! For mid-Movember we'll hear from one songwriter in Ottawa whose mustachional anthem was played as the Movember flag was raised at City Hall at the beginning of this month: JACK PINE + THE FIRE.
  • We'll also hear from a band that's achieved legendary status in the blues world, not just in Canada, but North America. DOWNCHILD has been rockin and swingin since 1969, and Donnie Walsh (who's had a mustache the entire time) has a pretty good sense of humour about it. Hear him rock a Sprinterview along with lead singer Chuck Jackson.
  • One Ontario songwriter strikes the perfect balance to the macho of mustaches permeating the month. GENTLEMAN REG is his singer-songwriter persona, but he's Regina the Gentle Lady when he fronts his new band LIGHT FIRES. Gent Reg races through a hilarious Sprinterview as well.
  • Plus a true tossed-salad of music including classical pianist REA BEAUMONT, world-fusionists JAFFA ROAD, old-school pop from MICHAEL RAULT, new-school pop from KELLY MCMICHAEL, folk from THE GREENBANK TRIO, and hip hop from THE JOYNT who is touring Ottawa for Bullying Awareness Week which starts Sunday.
