Monday April 17th, 2017 with Joe Reilly
Tonight we feature and in-depth interview with David Gedge of the Wedding Present.

The Wedding Present, under the leadership of David Gedge has been making music since the mid-1980s and released a new album called Going Going... last September. The group is on tour supporting the new album and brings its music to Zaphod Beeblebrox here in Ottawa tomorrow (Tuesday, April 18.) Tonight we talk to David Gedge just before hitting the stage in Montreal and we talk about things like what makes a good cover song, why the new album starts with four introspective instrumental pieces, what it's like to revisit old songs and play old albums in their entirety, the personal nature of many of the songs on the new album and why The Wedding Present does NOT do encores. A great conversation with a veteran rock'n'roller! Then we spin a lengthy piece from Max Richter's 8 CD set Sleep as well as some new music by Canadian singer-songwriters Leif Vollebekk and Beyries. Then it's time for a bit of Jesus Christ Superstar... I cannot resist at Easter!
