Track List – November 16th (The Royal Oui Live)

It’s super late, but here’s the track list for this past weekend’s show. I was humbled and intimidated and so, so honoured to be able to have The Royal Oui come perform on my show and hang out for a conversation; Ari Shine and Adrienne Pierce are both just incredible musicians and generally fantastic people.

In a lot of ways, radio is a little like shouting into a void; you don’t get a lot of feedback that anyone is listening, so it’s easy to assume you’re just talking to the wind. But every so often you get to interview some guests who are genuinely thrilled to be on the air, and make you feel like you’re actually accomplishing something each week. Ari and Adrienne made me feel like I was really becoming part of the music community here on the island, and that my dinky little weekly playlist of songs I love may be something people would listen to and perform on. Needless to say I was thrilled at this show; I think it’s one of the best ones I’ve ever done. I hope to do more like this in the future.
