Tell The Band To Go Home

Tell The Band To Go Home is a weekly celebration of great songs and the people who bring them to life. I play songs from some of the greatest songwriters of all time, including John Prine, Lyle Lovett, Fred Eaglesmith, Willie P. Bennett, and many more. Along with the legends, I also focus on the the hottest new writers of today. Every week, I try to have a different musical guest who can give us some insight into their songs and their personality. Previous guests include: David Francey, Gurf Morlix, James McMurtry, Eliza Gilkyson, John Mayer, and many more. Also, I'm often joined by local singer/songwriters in the studio for a talk and some live music. Local favourites like Del Barber, JP Hoe, Nathan, The Wailin' Jennys, Scott Nolan, and many more have all stopped by. If you're interested in great music on a Sunday afternoon, check out Tell The Band To Go Home every week.
