I had a few sources of inspiration for this morning's show.
Some was sparked by lingering/permanent nostalgia for the vast community that was established at CBC Radio 3. Some dedicated writers and music enthusiasts from that blogging collective have since come together to create their own online indie music blog. A pal from Mexico had posted her playlist, and I had actually already had a few in common! And -- full disclosure, I borrowed a couple more other great ones too -- thanks Reg. ♥
I also wanted to express my sheer adoration for some wonderful local bands -- We Were Lovers and the Karpinka Brothers! Definitely two of my favourites. And the lovely wife of Shawn Karpinka, Alyssa, tipped me off about the enthralling voice of Margo Price. Lots of serendipitous musical occurrences happening this week, I must say.
Otherwise, I just wanted to share a fun flurry of wake-up goodness. I have some sweet links below for you to check out as well - please do!
