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.

Cirque du Soleil Interview

The Cirque is in town! Cirque Du Soleil’s travelling show Corteo is in Calgary for a stop until September 7. I was there opening night, and it’s an amazing show. If you haven’t seen a Cirque show before, go see it. And if you have, you already know how engrossing the Cirque experience is. Two of the Corteo performers stopped by my show for a chat about the show, and what the cirque lifestyle is all about. David Figlioli plays the white clown in the show, and Christina Campolongo does some pretty amazing acrobatics and some fun improv as part of her character’s role. Listen:

Re-donk-ulousDeva Dave stopped in to explain the “frosted tips” on guys in Calgary phenomenon. Is it a conspiracy by Calgary hairdressers to make extra buck selling hair dying to dudes here, or is Calgary stuck in a fashion trend that peaked 15 years ago? Listen:
