We get lots of telemarketing calls to the station. I got caught a little off guard when the telemarketer asked for a specific woman. Well, I decided to be a woman, sort of. Listen:

Checking in With My Mom

My mom left a voicemail for me last Sunday, and I didn’t return the call right away, so on Friday, I received a second voicemail from my mom wondering why I hadn’t called her:

Mom’s voicemail

I called her in the afternoon, and we had a long chat. I’ve broken it down into two parts, and keep in mind that Bonnie and Clyde are a pair of Shi Zhu dogs.

Just when you think it can’t get stranger with my “biggest fan” this call comes in. She’s babysitting again, and feeding the baby…and it goes weirdly downhill from there. Listen:

Cornell in Banff just for X92.9 Listeners

Audio, Cool, Interview, Rock Report 1 Comment »

We just announced today that Chris Cornell would be joining us (and Matt Good) for our One Weekend Only adventure in Banff this November. Friday night it’s Matt Good, then Saturday night at Wild Bill’s, Chris Cornell and his band will take the stage. Small venue, legend of new rock. Pretty amazing. If you were at Cornell’s sold out show at Mac Hall when he was here last, you’d know he plays his solo stuff, Soundgarden, Audioslave, and even some Temple of the Dog.  When he was through town recently, I went by his hotel for a chat. He’s a down-to-earth, thoughtful, well-spoken guy, which made the interview pretty smooth-sailing. Here’s the audio:

P.S. If you wanna join us in Banff for this once-in-a-lifetime event, be the 9th caller through at 403-238-X929 when you hear Matt Good, or any of Cornell’s bands. Easy peasy.

This time around they offered me a vacation. At the end, the woman says something strange which sounds a bit like a foreign language. Other’s have suggested it might be english. What do you think? Listen:

MSTRKRFT put on a killer show when they were in town recently at Flames Central. They’re headed back out on a big tour to promote a new EP called Fist of God. The closest they come to Calgary is Winnipeg and Vancouver. Boo! The first single is bounce, and it has a bit of a party theme to it. Listen:
