EP 242 | WHITEHORSE-Tales from New Album ‘Im not Crying You’re Crying’


Jimmy would be so proud!

His Mom and Dad are guesting on the  Mulligan Stew Podcast.

Jimmy is the 10-year-old son of Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet of Whitehorse. Jimmy likes the music his Mom and Dad make so much that he’s sitting in on drums during house rehearsals.

Luke and Melissa have just released their 8th album I’m not crying You’re crying.

What started as a possible lockdown country covers project quickly turned into writing their own songs, as though they were writing and singing in the 70s. In Nashville.

What’s best about this album is they sound like they’ve been writing and singing country all their musical life. Which is what they did.

When they met and started Whitehorse it was as a country band. So, they’ve come full circle. Through the blues and back into country.

This podcast tells the tales of those years and their relationship.

It’s a winner and so are Jimmy’s parental unit.

Mulligan Stew Jan 28th 2023-Special Guests Whitehorse


Special guests on the Saturdays Stew – By the time they hit the air on The Stew, Whitehorse will be proclaimed #1 on the CKUA Top 30.   I believe they’ll be there for a while.

Their new album I’m not crying You’re crying is getting rave reviews – everywhere.

And Next week they’ll be showcasing in London at AmericanaUK. 

In this Saturday interview, they drop some word bombs that will linger including Luke proclaiming that they will now be a working  Country band. 

They’re gifted singers, songwriters, and musicians. But best of all they’re fine people and an absolute joy to interview.

The Jimmy they mention is their 10-year-old son. He is home-schooled by his parents, joins them on tour, started playing piano during the lockdown, and insists on playing his drum kit when they practice.

Best of all, the complete interview – all 40 minutes, will be on the Mulligan Stew Podcast and the Terry David Mulligan YouTube Channel…

EP 241 | Jann Arden from the Archives-We Revisit Calgary Junos and Feeding My Mother


Two Words – Jann Arden.

Long time friend. A completely singular artist.

In concert she’ll have you laughing so hard it will be through tears.

Then she sings – man does she sing – and you’ll find yourself freely flowing more tears.

I have been blessed to have had a close-up focus on Jann’s  career and her very full life.

(including early on, busking in a doorway in cold and wet Gastown, Vancouver and getting sucker punched by a pedestrian for singing Christmas Carols. Years later,  she’s creating her next hit album and looking down from The Warehouse studios, she can see that exact doorway.)

For over 35 years Jann and I have crossed paths and occasionally stopped to talk with a microphone or camera between us.

While I was busy telling music and film stories Jann was nominated for 19 Junos ,  winning 8.  She won MuchMusic awards and now is on Canada’s Walk of Fame.

Jann’s  been acting, hosting, judging, recording, and touring with her small group and with orchestras large and small.

Basically, with the support and guidance of manager Bruce Allen, Jann Arden has become a Canadian Super Star.

These two interviews are from our archives.

The first is from April 2016 – at the Junos in Calgary where she was co-hosting.

I attended a press conference and she was completely surrounded by the media I went off to the corner and found the only two chairs in the room, with a small table.

I set up my field recorder and waited.

When she was done, Bruce walked Jann over and we had a chat. Here’s the exchange of ideas and thoughts.

Juno Interview-Terry David Mulligan, Corey Wood, and Jann Arden

The second interview is from Dec 2017…Jann’s on tour and I wanted to talk to her about her book Feeding My Mother: Comfort and laughter in the kitchen as my Mom lives with memory loss. 

Together, Jann  and her Mom were  a force. Her Mom was losing a battle to memory loss and Jann was doing her best to comfort, feed  and love her best friend.

This interview has stayed with me for the last 5 years. Heartbreaking and revealing,

Thank You Jann.


NEXT WEEK – Whitehorse

EP 239 | The Family Curse and Early James – a 2023 TwoFer



Welcome to the first Podcast of 2023.

Two guests  – From the Gulf Islands of BC The Family Curse and from the US deep south Early James.


You may not have heard of A Family Curse but you’ve certainly heard of the Family Father – Neil Osborne. Founder, singer, songwriter, and vocalist for 54.40.

He’s joined by his daughter Kandle.  I love the fact that they imply that their music is “found material”.  That’s where some of the best music lives.

Kandle has been making music and finding herself in Montreal but at heart, Kandle and Neil are west coast islanders.

Check out their self-titled album and crazy videos.

FYI – 54.40 play The Grand Prairie North Winter Festival  next Saturday, Jan 14th

March 3 at Midway in Edmonton

March 4 Deerfoot Inn in Calgary

The second guest is Early James from Birmingham, Alabama.


Early got a guitar in his hands at a  very young age and started writing songs and gigging with friends.

He came to the attention of Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who offered to produce his first album What a strange time to be alive!

His songs are strong but his voice is very unique. Like a young/old  Tom Waits.

I just looked at his tour dates…he’s crazy busy

All over Europe, then Australia, and mid-year everywhere in the  USA.

Please welcome Early James to the Mulligan Stew Podcast

NEXT WEEK – Doug and the Slugs Documentary

Ep 238 | A Q&A with Q&A



My pal Jason Priestley and I have stepped into the world of wine. The difference is, we’re not consumers,  we’re partners with winemaker Michael Mosny at Winemakers Cut in Oliver, BC.

Jason for several years had been an investor in Black Hills Winery, the maker of the iconic Nota Bene.

After the sale of Black Hills, I continued to search for exceptional terroir capable of producing a peerless Bordeaux-style blend. Throughout this journey, I merged paths with Terry and then Michal. Together, we questioned what we already know, over and over again,” said Priestley“After looking everywhere, all roads lead to one answer and the answer is once again in the Okanagan. This time, the difference is in the details, with a focus on elegance and finesse.”

Q&A “I heard about Canadian wine for the first time from Terry and Jason’s international television show, Hollywood and Vines TV, and it quickly became my passion  They are the reason why I decided to move here with my wife in 2012 and make wines in the Okanagan Valley.”   Slovakian-Canadian Michal Mosny is the proprietor of Winemaker’s CUT, an acclaimed winery based in the District Wine Village in Oliver, BC.

Q&A started rolling out in November of 2022. It’s just now beginning to show up on select wine store shelves and restaurant wine lists. Check out for more information

It’s a Bordeaux-inspired blend ..

45% Cabernet Sauvignon

38% Merlot

13% Cabernet Franc

4% Petit Verdot

100% Yummy!

Here’s the first Q&A gabfest on The Mulligan Stew Podcast
