Who and What for Jan.3
Thursday January 1, 2009
Shaking the snow off authors, songs and books discussed on Jan. 3rd
Shelagh Rogers welcomes you to the Lions In Winter edition of The Next Chapter
featuring Farley Mowatt in a discussion of his memoir Otherwise.
You'll hear a selection from a tribute to the writer Alastair McLeod and his novel No Great Mischief.
Singer/songwriter Colm WIlkinson shares another kind of tribute with his son Aaron in the song Father and Son from his cd Some of My Best Friends Are Songs.
Austin Clarke's latest novel is More. We challenge him with The Next Chapter's questionnaire.
And finally writer, actor and painter Gordon Pinsent joins Shelagh onstage at Woody Point for a lively talk about his career and upcoming projects.

Just discovered & so enjoyed your show today!
What a marvellous after Christmas gift..
Thank you Shelagh!
As I sit here looking out across the strait listening to our Canadian lions this afternoon, I feel all is well with the world. Farley Mowat's moral compass reminds me of why I chose to become a Canadian way back in the 70's. Alistair McLeod's humility and Gordon Pinsent's humanity remind me that, even those with extraordinary talent and ability, still sound pretty much like the people I know and want to know (as opposed to, say, that huge celebrity machine in other parts of the world that seem to turn gifted people into monsters). Then to top it off as Colm and his son were singing their duet, a ferry from Nanaimo appeared to float towards Tswassen in time to the music.
Hello Shelagh....I'm one of those many Canadians who was sorry to see you go from Sounds Like Canada, but who is immensely happy to hear you back on The Next Chapter.
I've always found your voice and laughter to be most addictive and to hear you back talking to the likes of Gordon Pinsent, my favoutite actor,and playing Colm Wilkinson's (and son's) version of Cat Steven's 'Father and Son' made me happy once again.
All the best in your new spot.....I intend to listen whenever I can !
