Rush are playing in Vancouver tonight, and I've found the other Rush tune I could play for this time of the morning on the b-side of "Closer to the Heart".

I would highly recommend getting a copy of Rosanne Cash's Essential collection if you don't have of her albums, and even for those that have everything because she chose all the cuts, and you already follow her twitter feed... you need everything, right?

Joe Jackson did the unthinkable by releasing his Jumpin' Jive album 30 years ago today, and we salute the end of our Accordion Awareness Month with a signature tune by Edith Piaf.

As the weather is warming up, I can't escape the heat but I can at least enjoy summer-sounding tunes... and Nick Drake is wonderful for that.

Then, a brand new track from Vancouver's Laurie Biagini, and since Kiss are playing in Prince George tonight and Dawson Creek tomorrow, Pastel Vespa (aka Fiona Thorn) has a soothing rendition of one of their tunes for the morning.

And it's Camera Day, so we wrap things up with Camera Obscura from Scotland.

If you've got a particular request for summer tune, send me an email and I'll do my best to get it on.

Congrat's to Helen Austin, the songwriting machine, who picked up 2 awards at the recent Vancouver Island Music Fest... Female Songwriter of the Year, and Artist of the Year!

I have a track for you from Catherine MacLellan's latest album Silhouette which comes out next week on July 5th, and today the saxophone turns 165, celebrating with a fluke hit-single for Cannonball Adderley.

And with all the trouble in the world, Karma in Nakusp would like to hear a lullaby for the news-weary soul from Bob Marley.
