Interview with Rose Henry, Interview with Peter Foldy Pt 1, Trevor Gordon and The Bee Gees, Interview with Peter Foldy Pt 2, The Bee Gees and more.
Two of our favourite guests re-visit the show today - First Nations activist Rose Henry and film maker/musician Peter Foldy. Rose has caught the ferry from Victoria, BC, to attend a meeting with the British Columbia Public Interest Research Centre. As alway, she passionately brings us up to date with the struggle for social justice in this part of the world, and today she reminds us of the issue of voter ID requirements in the lead-up to the next federal election.
Peter Foldy returns to play some tunes from his long awaited new record 'Nine Lives.' First up we revisit his fascinating early story growing up in Australia where he was friends with the Bee Gees when they were first starting out. We air a couple of early Bee Gees compositions, as well as two tracks by another childhood friend Trevor Gordon who is actually backed by the youthful Bee Gees. I highly recommend listening to these tunes as a reminder of the sophistication of the early Bee Gees' songwriting.
