An interview with Natalia from the Dears as the group is playing the NAC on Friday night (May27)

We start of with some instrumentals and wind our way towards an interview with Natalia Yanchak of the Montreal-based group The Dears. The group is appearing at the National Arts Centre on Friday night (May 27.) We talk about the themes that are explored in some of the songs on the group's latest album Times Infinity Volume One, the challenges of keeping a group like the Dears together for more than 20 years. We also talk about Nadine Gelineau as Natalia was a friend of Nadine's and Nadine helped the Dears throughout the group's career. Nadine was a great producer/programmer here at CKCU in the 1980s and was the program director of the station for several years in the 80s, before she moved on to Montreal, Toronto, New York and eventually Los Angeles ... always working in the music industry to advance the careers and music of great artists. Sadly Nadine died in early April of lung cancer and she is missed and fondly remembered by many of us here at CKCU.
