It's time for Liner Notes and this week our guest is Matthew Byrne.
Matthew is a member of the popular trad group The Dardanelles
but this week he's hear to talk about his first solo CD and how his family

As Brigus gets ready for the Rockwell Kent centennial celebrations, we'll talk to the man who made a documentary about Kent's life. Frederick Lewis is the director of that film. I reached him this week at his office at Ohio University. I began by asking what inspired him to make a film about the eventful life of Rockwell Kent.

WAM May 10-May 11 - Liner Notes - Dave Paddon

If you want to hear stories of extreme berry picking, cross-country turrs, bingo superstars,
beloved snowmobiles, and other such tales, Dave Paddon is your man.

Dave travels far and wide as an Air Canada pilot.

But when he's on the ground, he entertains crowds with his recitations at festivals and

story-telling sessions.

Now he's collected those recitations in a newly released CD.

It's called "Not a Word of a Lie," and it arrived in stores this week.

Dave is my guest today on Liner Notes. When he joined me in the studio, I began by asking

how he got started as a storyteller.

WAM May 10-May 11 - Women in Music

We all know the late night, rock n' roll club scene is traditionally
male-dominated territory.

So what's it like to be a woman playing the bars of St. John's these days?

We invited three young musicians to discuss that issue.

Kelly McMichael is from Ontario, and has lived in St. John's since
last fall. Her band is called Kelly McMichael and the Gloss.

Heather Nolan and Allie Duff are in a band called Lady Brett Ashley,
and they each do solo shows as well.

Jamie Fitzpatrick began the discussion by asking Kelly what kind of
issues she's encountered as a woman leading a band.
