I like it, but it's too early in the morning to be snapping your fingers...the neighbours might complain about the noise...

Yeah... toe tapping and finger snapping... so wrong! :)

Hi Phelonius, Listing in from work today. Funny you should play Paul Anka's jazzy version of that Soundgarden song. We played Smells like Teen Spirit on Welcome To My World/Mar's Local connection shows yesterday as part of our Ottawa Musical Dads tribute. I'm liking this swing music!!! Really enjoying your show!

Hi Shelley, glad you're enjoying the show, thanks! Have you heard Tory Amos' version of Smells Like Teen Spirit?

*Tori ... sigh.

10:23 AM, June 17th, 2015
Not yet, but on your recommendation I will definitely check it out. Thank you.

I had heard that played to me by my dad. It was with mixed feelings I listened to it. My dad knew Paul Anka, he lived a couple of streets over from my dad when he was growing up on Bayswater.

Yeah, mixed feelings definitely expected under the circumstances. I don't know anyone who would not have a mixed reaction to it, heh. The station manager came in and said, wow, Glenn Miller, no knowing where my show is going to end up, "but that Paul Anka song was pretty weird"". My work here is done!

This weekend is Glowfair...Marie Bilodeau is performing at it this year: Back for its second year, Glowfair is a huge festival that takes over Bank Street in Ottawa over the course of two days. This year, I'm extremely happy to announce that I'll be telling some stories on both days! Kids Storytelling, Friday, June 19 7 pm - 7:30 pm Lisgar and Cooper, Kids Zone I'll be telling stories for children, so fun stuff with singing and rhymes and probably a fluffy animal or two. And definiely space spiders, because space spiders. Family Storytelling in the Enchanted Forest, Saturday, June 20 11:00 am- 11:45 am 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm 5:00 pm- 5:45 pm MacLaren to Gilmour I'm telling stories in an Enchanted Forest! That's definitely a first, and I'm very excited. These will be family appropriate, so I won't be killing anyone off. We're definitely going to have fairy stories and maybe more space spiders, because space spiders.

Hi S.A.M. ... sorry for the late reply, but I really like that Esthero song too. I'm a bit meh about the album overall, but that song has kind of grown on me.
