ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Battle!

In the podcast we explore the origins of this ALS Ice bucket phenomena that is sweeping across social media. In addition to that we look at the rules and rock some great tracks.

I realize I was a few days late with completing the challenge. I wanted to look into this a bit further to make sure that it was a good cause. What I was worried about was that the time limit forced people to just mindlessly follow the pyramid scheme social media experiment without looking further into what it was about.

Check out our facebook page for my video!

I was nominated by DJ Jeff E Jeff. I nominated Brad Merritt, Lyle Bell and Parker Bossley.

YouthCanSlam! – Fight and Flourish Radio (formerly The Hump) Aug 20 2014 Podcast

Hello hello!

This is Janice Lee, reporting back from YouthCanSlam in Ottawa, the national festival for young spoken word poets. I was there all week reppin KW, and I facilitated a Safer Spaces and Anti-Oppression in Slam workshop at the festival. Youth poets ages 14-22 from across Turtle Island came together to participate in workshops, see feature performers and compete in the Canadian National Youth Poetry Slam Championships. For this show I interviewed a handful of youth poets, as well as some organizers from the national spoken word scene. It’s quite a patchwork of short interviews. Be sure to check out the podcast below, on air we only heard up to track 10.

The Royal Streets visit Sound FM

 

Hailing from Waterloo, Ontario, The Royal Streets  featuring Sam Keating, drums, Eric Stirtzinger, guitar, Algeron Friolet, Guitar/Vocals, Jillian Dowding, vocals, and Michael Demsey, guitar, have already begun to make their mark on the Canadian folk-rock music scene. Following a year and half of consisting Eastern Canada touring, The Royal Streets released their debut studio effort, Kings & Queen, on March 6th 2014 with the help of Catherine North Studios and producer Dan Hosh whose credits include Canadian acts like City & Colour, Whitehorse, and Rose Cousins.

The Royal Streets play Oshaga!
The Royal Streets play Oshaga!

Although the four of us have gone to school and been friends with each other for the majority of our lives, it was not until recently that we decided combine our efforts musically. The Royal Streets is our way of demonstrating hours and hours of hard work mixed with a variety of musical influences and our own life experiences. We are based out of Waterloo, Ontario and hope to share these sounds with all of you. Have a listen and join the riot, we are The Royal Streets.

They are now on the verge of their first Western tour and I am sure it will not be their last.

**This is strange mix for this podcast – part of it is phone chat, and part of it is in studio. The reason for this – my recorder did not properly record the live broadcast, (with Jillian, Michael, and Al who also sang a new song Sour Diesel) so I salvaged what I could of it and then mixed in the phone chat that I did with Jillian and Michael the day before. And then I mixed in some of the great tunes from their latest CD Kings and Queen. Ah, technology… ain’t it great when it works? – Coral.**

Catch The Royal Streets at The Wax (beside Bobby O’Brien’s in downtown Kitchener) with special guests Amberwood and very special guests 1951 featuring their good pal / producer Dan Hosh from Hamilton’s Catherine North Studios.
