To celebrate this move we’ve got a some fantastic programmes with special guests to stimulate your brains and ears, plus the regular quality programming. Here’s what the schedule is looking like thus far, with the guesstimated timeline.
“Let’s Talk Radio” (live) ~ 1:00 – 1:45
The name says it all, this programme will be about radio—community radio specifically—and why it’s a good thing. Featuring CJLY host Randy Morse, Kaslo Jazz Fest’s executive director Paul Hinrichs, myself (Neil Timothy Johnson) and Rooted Radio’s very own Robin Mercy, this’ll be sure to be made of enlivening and engaging conversation.
“Long Distance” ~ 1:45 – 2:30
Robin Mercy has got a fresh show in the works, covering new territory in this globe trotting, country hopping, quick witted, multi-cultural music series.
“Kaslo’s Vinyl Renaissance” (live) ~ 2:30 – 3:45
Part of a bigger vision held by local legend, DJ and birthday boy, Collin Sleuth Knight, this show will feature a handful of Kaslo area vinyl slingers (Joshua Laboucane, Stefan Weaver and Jan Van Gold plus myself) who know something many of you may not… Records are not dead. Join us as we share gems from our collections, and thoughts around the mystique and magic of these music flat black discs. (Any vinyl junkies up for future shows? Dallas Breakfluid, Davide Luchetta, Jake Dub and Braden Early?)
“Three Chords and The Truth” – 3:45 – 4:30
This long time running show is a classic in the Kootenays after its years on CJLY. It’s host and Kaslo’s very experienced community member, Jim Van Horn, will be bringing you yet another episode sharing old-time music through the online channels opened by Kaslo’s Rooted Radio.
“Kaslo Feeding Kaslo” (live) ~ 4:30 – 5:15
Featuring Dustin Murray East, Swen Birch and Robin Mercy. These three local folk from the area—each working to see that we are feed and each unique in their approach to doing so—will be sharing on their efforts and individual perspectives for our local food situation, its present and future.
So make a big pot of coffee or tea, stock up the food, lay back and have your internet device at the ready. We look forward to sharing another Kaslo’s Rooted Radio Day with you all!
