Wednesday Special Blend
Wednesday May 26th, 2021 with Jeff Larocque (filling in)
Local band/artist updates, a Lung Story and a new place to eat.

Evil Creek have a new album about to drop so they took some time to fill us in. John Allaire brings us two #WorldRadioPremiers from his John Allaire and the Fi-Delities upcoming album, "Paint It All in Blue" Hélène Campbell, who is Canada's first double lung transplant recipient joins me to tell us how she's doing with her second pair of lungs... yes, she has had two surgeries to replace both lungs. Now she calls herself a "double double" and the photo on today's playlist shows Helene enjoying time outside with her favourite buddy Théo. JW Jones joins me in hour 2.5 to fill us in on HoRoJo Trio's debut album kickstarter, and we finish off with a feature on "Charcoal Boys" a new eatery set to open their doors in Orleans.

Sorry about the first 5 minutes of the show. Forgot to fade out the Steely Dan tune for the on air upload. If you check back On Demand you'll hear what I was saying at the beginning lol. Just a bit #rusty there...

Hi Jeff, Listening 'on demand.' Good to hear you back on the air! What a coup to have Canada's first double double, Helene Campbell as a guest. All the musical guests are great, too.
