A long over due episode, but an episode none the less. I take you with me on the road for this six song, a carefully crafted episode that I threw together in haste. Theme? My birthday was last month, so I play tracks that I’ve long wanted to play on RZ but never found the way or time to get them in.
Flying blind with a case of the Mondays I just wanted to crank out an episode and play some kickin’ tunes. On top of featuring artists who all have concerts in town this month, I prepared some Vancouver trivia for John in honor of his 2 year ‘Vancouver anniversary’, which is just around the corner.

I, Rebecca, join John for this late, but ‘better-late-than-never’, episode of RadioZoom as we dedicate #138 to entirely Can-Con.
What’s Can-Con you ask? Well tune right in while we educate the masses about how broadcasters in Canada are required by law to give Canadian artists and Canadian produced music 35% of their airplay. We one-up these regulations and churn out 100% Canadian content and share six awesome tracks.
Thanks so much to Matthew Good for allowing us to kick off with tunes from his newly-released album, and to the other artists linked below whose music we found on IODA Promonet and the Podsafe Music Network.
A very quick, turnaround episode that we recorded in the midst of Rebecca’s Blogathon efforts. She is blogging to raise money for the Surrey Food Bank for 24 hours straight, one post per every thirty minutes. A daunting task fore sure, so be sure to check in on her site to find out more!

Slightly late, but not by much. This is an all submission episode of the Six Song. I’ve let the emails pile up too high, but sorting through the back logs found a lot of cool stuff to play for you.
As I mention in this one, and this is meant for all submitters, be sure you give me mp3’s to play in the podcast. I love hearing about new bands, but having to dig for your music to play is not something I like spending a ton of time on. To the following bands, I am very grateful for leading me directly to your wonderful music. You are awesome.
Baseball in Vancouver? You bet, and we take our adventures to the one hundred year old ballpark of Nat Baily Stadium for opening day of the 2007 Vancouver Canadians baseball season. They’ve renovated since the last time we’ve been to a game, so we give you our thoughts and some sounds to the start of this year.
This episode, we’re all about covers. I’ve been amassing a nice collection of artists in terms of who has give their permission to play their music on the podcast. That has allowed us to pick from their collection of recordings and play some of the covers that they’ve done of other various bands from the past.
Hello. We’re back. Yes, we’re still here, and you’re along for another adventure into Stanley Park. We stop to give you some subtle updates of what has gone on since the last, “real” episode, and there are a handful of more artists that have granted permission to play their music on our podcast. Since we’re on the go in this entire episode, we don’t talk about the music as much as we explore the park. We even try to suck it up and actually walk out onto Lions Gate Bridge, the fear of heights being fairly strong for both of us. We end the day with some Vancouver Trivia back at home.
Also, if you dig the tracks by The Dandy Warhols, check out their show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver if you in the area on June 1st, 2007.
Straight and to the point, this month’s six song dives directly into submitted music to the podcast. Thanks to all of those who have sent in emails and mp3’s to have them played on the podcast. I’m late getting to some of them, but we take a listen to a lot of the tracks for the first time together.
Better late than never, here is the six song for this month. Life has been hectic and busy, but we’ll be back with more very soon. Also, I recalled incorrectly about the name of Matthew Good’s upcoming album, but you can read Rebecca’s blog post about it here to get more info. In the meantime, enjoy the tunes and rock out with me. Yeah!
