The Split Peas are twenty years young. We'll hear from the band and their latest album on this week's edition of Liner Notes. I spoke with Gerry Poirier and Ada Piercey Jenkins of the Split Peas. My first question was for Gerry. I asked if they thought about packing it in any time in the last twenty years.

WAM Mar 29-Mar 30 - Liner Notes - Gramercy Riffs

The Gramercy Riffs had a sizeable following for their catchy rock and roll tunes when they left the island and moved to Toronto about five years ago. That was not long after they made a debut CD called "It's Heartbreak." Time to find out what the new album sounds like.

As Riffster Lee Hanlon told Angela Antle in this week's Liner Notes, the sound of the band has mellowed somewhat since the move to the mainland.

And in case your're wondering if this is another RPM album - the answer is no but that doesn't mean Heather Nolan didn't find time to do that too...

WAM Feb 22-Feb 23 - Louis Elphage Wynn Jones Bernard

The arts community in Newfoundland and Labrador is grieving the loss of Louis Elphage Wynn Jones Bernard. Louis was the much beloved son of Andy Jones and Mary Lynn Bernard and the brother of Marthe Bernard. All well known and well loved members of the theatre community and Marthe is one of the stars of the Republic of Doyle - she plays Tinny. Louis struggled with mental health issues and his obituary clearly stated that he died of his own hand.  The families openness and lack of shame around Louis' suicide was noted by many people who attended the funeral. Mary Walsh - a colleague of Andy Jones' from their days performing in CODCO gave the eulogy. The speech was funny, heartwaming and a call to action.
