EP 105 | Ron Sexsmith

hello

Our Podcast guest is one of the best songwriters that Canada has ever given The World.

Wait a minute. Better than Cohen. Joni. Neil. Lightfoot etc?

They are all peers. The originals who paved the way.

RON SEXSMITH has just released his new album Hermitage.

Ron triggers emotions and memories.

I love talking to Ron.  We have the same sense of humor and history.

And we both love our coffee in the morning,  wine at night and the music of Richard Manuel, Kinks, Zevon, The Who et al.

Enjoy the conversation and the Zoom video that comes with it.

Mulligan Stew May 2nd 2020- Ron Sexsmith Interview

hello

#Sing for Spring is behind us

The historic CKUA Spring Fundraiser is behind us.

And so is Winter.

ONWARD MY FRIENDS.

Into that bright light that appears to be The Sun.

Our guest Saturday just happens to be one of the best songwriters that this country has ever produced.

RON SEXSMITH has just released his new album Hermitage, implying I suppose,  that by moving from Toronto to Stratford Ontario he has become a hermit.

I’ve discovered that trying to find the meaning behind Ron’s songs is a Fools Game. 

What he does best is enter your heart and your mind with words and textures that trigger emotions and memories.

I love talking to Ron.  We have the same sense of humor and history.

We like the same artists

Ray Davies and The Kinks

Randy Newman

Warren Zevon

The Who

John Lennon

McCartney

Harry Nilsson

And best of all, he sits on a bench near his house (Chateau Mermaid).

He constructs ideas for songs there.

The bench is dedicated in the memory of the great Richard Manuel, from The Band.

What goes around comes around.

FYI – The complete interview can be heard following The Stew on the MulliganStew Podcast

Saturday from 5-7 Mtn we celebrate the amazing success of the Spring Fundraiser..by playing a bag full of music.

And read some of the donor dedications that we didn’t get to last weekend.

Little Feat Live

Frazey Ford

Bob Marley

Elvis

Mulligan Stew April 25th 2020-LIVE- Spring Fundraiser from my home week 2

hello

Everyone at CKUA Radio wishes all of our music fans a safe Spring, the cleanest hands you’ve ever had, and a peaceful Spring.

It’s the Spring Fundraiser for donor-supported CKUA.
We’ll be in our home studios with David Ward at the controls in Calgary.
In the last 30 minutes of the show, we’ll also go live on the CKUA Facebook page. 
This year, because of the pandemic, there are no volunteers to take calls and pass on your comments, dedications, and feedback.
So we both need to hear from you. Let’s get this job done. Like dinner.

Throughout AprilMulligan Stew and everyone else at CKUA have been saluting the doctors, nurses, caregivers, first responders, and in-store teams keeping us fed and protected with Saturday Beatles song sing-a-longs! People from all over the province have been participating from their balconies, porches, backyards, garages, cavern clubs, and more!

At 5 PM MT this Saturday April 25, we conclude this series with one final Beatles song. But what song will it be?

Please tell us what Beatles song you want us to close with on social media using #singforspring and tag @ckuaradio and @tdmulligan and we’ll run a twitter poll on Friday to determine the winning entry! We’ll play it on Saturday at 5 PM MT.

 

Thank you

EP 104 | SOSIMA OLIVERA – OAXACA MESCAL MASTER

hello

photo credit: Kate  Siobhan Mulligan

“they do not adapt to the market needs but rather feel it is the market that needs to adapt to the needs of the agave”

For fans, the search for real mescal/mezcal  starts in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico

The tasting session with Sosima in Oaxaca was a Christmas present from my daughter Kate.

Her husband Pete was along for the tasting, to take some photos and make sure I found my way home.

Sosima is a  third-generation mezcal master from San Miguel Suchixtepec.  Olivera’s grandfather and her father brought Sosima and her six brothers into the world of making mezcal from a young age. She was taught the art by her Grandmother and Aunt.

She’s proud of her chontal ancestry—the indigenous people of Oaxaca—and explains that her people are a peaceful and united group that continues to make mezcal in the traditional approach: not only for drinking but to sustainably cultivate the plant for future generations to come.

There’s a saying in Mexico about Mescal

“When something is bad..the answer is mezcal

When something is good..the answer is mezcal”

photo  credit: Kate Siobhan Mulligan

Her primary label is FANEKANTSINI MEZCAL COOPERATIVE.

They are the Maestro Chontales Tres Colibris (Three Hummingbirds) from Sola de Vega in Oaxaca.

Eight families with a long tradition of Mezcal making.

We welcome to Mulligan Stew Podcast The Mezcalistas

EP 103 | Quibi CEO Meg Whitman

hello

Quibi is a subscription-based streaming platform designed to deliver short-form scripted and unscripted content to your cell phone. The name is a mash-up of the words “quick” and “bites,” a nod to the fact that episodes of Quibi shows will run roughly seven to ten minutes in length.

Meg Whitman is the CEO of Quibi.   Prior to Quibi, she served as CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and President/CEO for the Hewlett-Packard Company.

Also senior executive at Disney. Ran for Governor of California. A key part of Mitt Romney’s Presidential bids of 2008 and 2012!

Quibi could be the future of entertainment. We’ll see.

EP 102 | Roy Forbes

hello

As much as Canada loves Roy Forbes’ songs I think it’s his voice that goes straight through your heart.

No fooling around. This voice is memorable. There’s only one like it.

The high lonesome sound of Canada.

He’s been at it for almost 50 years.

Sunday he celebrates his 14th year of hosting Roy’s Record Room on CKUA Radio, province-wide in Alberta.  Name me another show that plays

Vinyl, 45’s and 78’s. Sexy slick tracks from the 20’s through to the 50’s.

A tower of those 78’s fell on top of Roy in his studio and his retina was so damaged he lost his sight. Roy has driven himself to just carry on.

Roy’s Room  IS the history of modern music. It’s how we got to where we are.

Roy has also just released his 11th album Edge of Blue.  It’s a  soul album by a skinny white kid.

It’s very good…

Here’s the complete interview with tracks…

Let’s Rock with Roy

 

MulliganStew April 11th 2020-We say hello to The Beatles and Goodbye to Barry Allen, Bill Withers and John Prine

hello

YOU SAY YES

I SAY NO….

The first 6 words of a classic Lennon/McCartney composition called Hello Goodbye.

The NEXT Saturday 5PM #SingforSpring Song.

Province-wide, we sing a “Thank You” to all the health care workers, first responders, drivers, shopkeepers, essential services and more.

Step outside (sunny -2) open a window, step out onto the balcony, hit the front or back porch..roll down the car window.  If you can turn on the phone video.  Sing for all those heroes out there and post your video to

#singforspring.  On Instagram or Facebook

Thank you ALL

cred-Riley-Forbes

Our guest this week is one of our own..Rockin’ Roy Forbes. Host of  Roy’s Record Room.

He’s celebrating the 14th year of “The Room” on CKUA and he’s just launched his latest and greatest album Edge of Blue.  (The complete interview can be found at www.mulliganstew.ca on Our Podcast)

 

NOTE:  This show was recorded on Tuesday because of the short week. I was more than halfway through the show when I discovered that John Prine had died.

I decided to just keep on going and let the Stew play out in real-time.

If it sounds like I got a tad choked up at times…I did. Like many, John and I shared a lot of years, a lot of songs together.

 

I decided to play a farewell song to John..and the natural choice was the last track on The Tree of Forgiveness.  When I get to Heaven is the song.

Some of the artists we’ve surrounded John with are

A new song from Mavis

Two from Colin James

Lyle Lovett

Two artists we lost this week.  Bill Withers and  a long time friend..who I loved dearly

Barry Allen

Barry Allen.

 

Roxy Music-Supertramp-John Hiatt-Patti Smith-Linda Ronstadt and The Stew ends with over 12 minutes of the classic Boz Scaggs track Loan me A Dime. With the Muscle Shoals stars and Duane Allman on guitar.

 

Bill Withers

The playlist is below…

Please remember

@singforspring

You are not alone

CKUA Spring Fundraiser is launched…

Be Safe

Be Kind

Thanks

-Terry

EP 101 | The Wood Brothers

hello

Nobody sounds like The Wood Brothers.

The Wood Brothers are blessed by dedicated fans who love their singular style that fuses gospel, blues, jazz, folk, country, and rock.

The band consists of Oliver Wood on guitar, younger brother Chris Wood on bass, and multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, who brings percussion to the band with his guitar, drums, keyboards…

Jano Rix..plays a guitar that’s modified to also be a percussive element.

The harmonies are sublime..the songwriting solid.

I love this band and these guys.

One of the keys is Chris Wood who brings jazz chops from his years with Medeski, Martin, and Wood.

What a band…

Best of all, they’re honest. No grandstanding..just outstanding music.

The boys talk about their time with Levon Helm, Drummer& Vocalist for The Band.

The Bands influence on their music.

This interview took place backstage at The Imperial Room, Vancouver BC.

Mulligan Stew April 4th 2020-#SingforSpring

hello

The first song Saturday is perhaps the most important one.

I decided to start all four shows in April with a Beatles Song, so we could ALL sing to and for the first responders, health care heroes and store staff who are risking their health to feed us and make sure we have the medicines we need.

The STEW starts with All you need is Love.

Throw open a window or step outside on your balcony, porch, deck or roll down the car window and sing the song.

Please shoot a short video of you or the people around you and post it to either Instagram Stories or Facebook. Most important Hashtag  #SingforSpring

 

 

Let’s make some noise for those who are putting their lives on the line.

Next Week it’s  Hello Goodbye

April 18 its Hey Jude

April 25 – the Beatle song is whatever you guys say it is.

 

My thinking on these two hours was to keep the singing going..to there’s some

Ben E King

Stones

Tom Petty.

They All follow The Beatles.

Then it’s handpicked music for a Saturday Night

Mercy Now – Mike Ferris

Buckle Up – New Pearl Jam

Sooner or Later – Eliza Gilkison

Hip Huh Her – Booker T

Can’t find my way home -Steve Winwood Live

One – U2

Plus

Linda Ronstadt

Robert Plant – Allison Krauss

The Wood Brothers

Elton John

Sarah Harmer

Billy Cowsill and The Co-Dependants

Lots of music to move to..

OR just lay there and think about Spring.

Take CARE of each other and #SINGFORSPRING
