I’ve been working on digitizing the stuff in these boxes I’ve been carrying around for years. Check back often for updates. : )

I received an audio file from an old friend Nelson Becker recently. This is a real blast from the past, an hour-long interview on CFRO Co-Op Radio from 1975 with my rock and roll band Foxfire a little while after we got together. It’s filled in a few blanks in the memory banks about gigs and events from my earliest days playing music in Vancouver. I was 22 when this was recorded, and life was good! Enjoy these installments, and rest assured that no substances were abused during this interview…

Back in 1973 I was in a cycle of working odd jobs, busking, and collecting unemployment. The insurance scheme was started by the Canadian government in 1940 as a panacea for the dreadful depression years. Everyone I knew back then was well-versed in the ‘no-no-yes-no-yes-no’ checkboxes on the biweekly forms you had to mail in, and we all lived with the existential dread of that cut-off letter. Of course what was a girl to do but write a tune about it?

Back in 2002 I had a radio show as part of my work in the Applied Communication Program at Camosun College and I got to interview just about every folk/roots artist who came through town that year. Click on the titles below for a few slices of Canadian music history. Enjoy!
