I know that it’s been a long time, but here is another episode of RadioZoom. In the spirit of Earth Hour, I used some rare down time to record a Six Song for the first time in a long time. Without getting into more detail, I hope you enjoy it.
*This episode contains some explicit language, listener discretion is advised*
This afternoon I headed out to the Commodore (with Raul in tow) to interview one of my all-time favourite bands. Chris Demakes of Less Than Jake was great to talk to and we’re really looking forward to the show tonight.

Tickets are still on sale but they’re going fast. As this is a quick episode, you have time to listen to the conversation, the tunes, and still make your way down to the Commodore for the show as Less Than Jake takes the stage around 11:15pm.
Special thanks go to Tris for lending me his audio recorder for this episode (although my mic levels are all over the place). Our mobile podcasting gear is still missing/nowhere to be found so we’re making due right now and getting by thanks to the generous social media community in Vancouver.
I sat down in a local coffee shop, opened up my MacBook (since our mobile gear is missing), and had a chat with Mark Latham of Voter Media and the Vancouver Election Blog Contest.
Mark explains a bit about his background, his passion, and his motivation for initiating Voter Media.
Here are all of the blogs currently listed in the weekly contest:

I (Rebecca) take the helm of Episode #144 as I capture, edit and publish the audio I recorded with Keira-Anne a few weeks ago during a weekend jaunt to Vancouver Island. We put the call out on our blogs for questions – any questions and were very pleased with the overwhelming response. [Keira-Anne][Miss604]

This is actually part one and we’re uncertain when the raw, uncut “part two” will be released. So for now, enjoy the sounds of a BC Ferry, and two girls who are super excited to hit the powder up on Mt. Washington.
Tunes played with permission from the artists:
This is some audio that we recorded last August after spending a weekend in Osoyoos, B.C. This audio has been sitting around for nearly six months, and I finally got around to editing it. There’s more where this came from, so look for more in the future.
There is still music in this one, as does every episode of RZ.
- Less Than Jake – rest of my life
- Aberdeen City – this is our problem tonight
- Sparta – untreatable disease
- Local H – hey, rita
- Dick Prall – bye, bye, bye

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.
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.
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.
Man do we ever love a good rock show. When I heard Sparta was coming back into town I immediately arranged another interview. Not only are we huge fans, but the guys in the band are so talented and down to earth. A couple of weeks later, the band rolled through town and played none other than the Fabulous Commodore Ballroom here in Vancouver. Jim Ward, subject of our last interview, was under the weather but when we went back stage and saw Keeley and were not disappointed. It was great to talk to the latest member of the band, contributor on their new album Threes, hear about his side projects and impressions of our fair city.
