C.Ham you raised a topic that I'm still fuming about. And I remember Mike's little smile when I first met him and mentioned the name. I thought it was way to close to Mike's show and still do. However to look at it as you suggested I kind of like that idea because Mike's show is truly a great one. When we meet I will tell you what I wanted to call it and still do. It would have been in honor of someone. Much like the Stan Rogers Festival except this person is still alive. It could still happen as there will be a lot or reorganizing for next year.

I don't have MusicMatch Jukebox. The stream and the podcasts play perfectly for me in the Windows Media Player.

They should work just fine in any program that can play MP3 files.

Che Guevara claim your crown...

Friends: Bruce Murdoch on Mike Regenstrief's "Folk Roots/Folk Branches" on CKUT/Montreal is an event that
should not be missed. Those who understand the importance of "331/3 Revolutions per Minute" and the earlier Elektra compilation/recording know that this will be a little more than just a radio show...Embrace the technology, find a way to listen to this program. This is your opportunity to hear one of the great Singer/Songwriters of our time...

I hope as many Mudcatters as possible will tune in and listen to Bruce's quality songwriting and artistry. Good singer and guitarist too. It's time for Bruce to get his due as an artist and songwriter.

I'd really love to see other artist record his music as well.

"I'd really love to see other artist record his music as well."

A couple who have, that I know of, are; Bill Staines - "Rompin' Rovin' Days" on his album Journey Home and Penny Lang - "Can I Come Across To You" on her album Gather Honey. Richie Havens performs Bruce's song "Let's Lay Down Our Drums" in his live performances.

From: Mike Regenstreif
Date: 24 Jul 07 - 01:35 PM

In 1972 -- 35 Years ago -- I was a student at Dawson College and got a small budget from the student government to create a folk music concert series. Among the performers who played the Dawson series were such notables as Utah Phillips, Malvina Reynolds, John Allan Cameron, Jean Carignan, Michael Cooney, Jesse Winchester and many others.

But the very FIRST performer I invited to open the series was Bruce Murdoch.

Then, in 1974, when I took over running the Golem, the Montreal coffeehouse/folk club, the first performer I invited to play there, and the first performer who did play there in my tenure, was again Bruce Murdoch.

Shortly after I started doing the radio show -- almost 14 years ago now -- I told Bruce I wanted him to come on the show. I'm so glad it's finally happening.

I've really missed Bruce and his songs over the past too many years. I hope I can get a space near the front for his Ormstown concert.

I hope that as soon as that there new-fangled podcast thingamajig is available, somebody posts the directions in this thread. Every time I try to "embrace the new technology", I get slapped like a masher.

Mick, let me know if ya need any help with that draggin' stuff. I don't know if he is an Irish or a Scot Murdoch, but, either way, he could be trouble. He IS Canuck, eh? Best keep yer eyes peeled either way.

Hi Gnu, etc....
Some mudcatters might even have jobs (unlike myself) but FR/FB starring MR can be downloaded after it's archived...
Find the show you want here...
http://www.ckutfolk.com/listen.html
...and click the right button on the mouse. OR option-click the only button.
This should cause the show to be transferred to the computer.
Then you need to play the mp3; lots of options; it will work with quicktime and/or iTunes, both available free.
Is that all clear as mud?
I'm not sure how quickly they archive, though...
hope this helps
(By the way those of you in faraway lands, this show is the best I've found so far, globally...)
cheers
John

Friends: As the night slowly falls on Montreal as we await the arrival of Uncle Brucie, sometimes affectionately(not THAT affectionately) known as "Mudrock", I thought I would offer a little story to all you who are, well, a little "uncomfortable" with the new tekkieschmekkie podcasterblaster #@$%#$&computer stuff that surrounds us.
    The other day I decide it might be a good idea to contact SOCAN, the performing rights agency, since my new album just got released on all the download shops. And, as we all know, them thar royalties are a GOOD thing. So I call them up and tell them I was with BMI in 1969! and that I did one song on T.V. 6 minutes playing time = $400 in royalties in 1969 dollars. Booyeah! They ask, "What's your name?." I tell them and hear ferocious typing on the computer...They go, "Oh, yeah, you're right here, what's your new address and phone number?" So kids, that's 38 YEARS ago, and they STILL got me...
    Which means, if some guy is taking a wee wee in Taiwan and he's humming one of my songs, these guys will find him.
    So, Bruce on the radio with Mike VILL BE AVAILABLE! ZAT iss fer sure....
And, the tip for today is, don't put that white iPod your kid gave you for your birthday in the toaster, hoping it will turn a golden brown. It wants to be your friend, All's ya gots ta do is read them durn instructions!!!

I laugh with you...as I give my beloved computer a big hug and a kiss goodnight...
Baby, I really didn't mean all those things I said about computers in the first paragraph, oh come on now, download, download...aw %&$%*#$@!!!

I heard the show though the stream when down midway and I missed the start of the interview with Bruce.
Wasn't too keen on the first guest, Ron Hynes. He was OK but just reinforced my suspicion that all Canadians sound the same. Except Gilles Vigneault.

Hi Bruce,

Hope you receive this. This is Sean's sister, Mary...after nigh these many years. Often thought of your wonderful music and all the great laughs we had (tee hee hee, as Sean would have said!) before you were Alberta Bound.

Cool, you will be in Ormstown this weekend. I will try to make if if I can, and if I dont, please remember that somewhere `lost on the high range and Gonyea just showed me the door`is alive and well in our hearts. Both Sean and Kenny, my other brother and a good musician in his own right, are gone now but by no means forgotten.

My email address is mary_bourdon@yahoo.com.
Take care and maybe we'll see you in Ormstown!

Mary

So...iffen Bruce will come down, I'll get him on the air here. Heck, I'll even set it up so he can make some money while he's in town. I mean, what's Montreal got that Pocatello don't?

Bruce's songs and conversation gave voice to the interesting, insightful, humorous, creative, multifaceted person we have come to know on Mudcat.

Those songs!!! YES!!! Like George P., "Last Man Standing" with its line "write to me when life's not so demanding" was my personal favorite. But for different reasons, I felt all the songs are definite keepers.

If Mike R. has a show of best interviews with artists, I believe that the Bruce Murdoch interview should be included-because of the interview portion as well as the high quality of Bruce's songs. For instance, I found the remembrances Bruce shared about basket [night]clubs and of Richie Havens singing people outside of a back into the nightclub to be particularly interesting from a music/folk cultural standpoint. But it's each of those songs that especially moved me.

Thanks, Bruce for picking up that guitar again and thank you for letting the words and tunes come through you to us!

In that radio interview Bruce mentioned that he had composed other songs that were keepers. I look forward to Bruce having a CD of the four songs that he performed on Mike's show and those other songs too.

I also said that I didn't much like the first guest, a run-of-the-mill, typically Canadian snigger-snogger, after which it all droned on interminably in similar vein and I was quite glad when the stream went down and spent ages rebuffering.

Of the bits I heard of Mr Peace once the stream was restored, I found it quite an improvement on the rest. No doubt when Mr Peace calls Mr Beer (whoever that is) he will let him know that I have already said so to him offlist.

Who are the singer-songwriters heard on the broadcast that Dian Easby disparages so?

Cyril Tawney, Arlo Guthrie, Tom Russell, Bob Ryskiewicz, Jesse Winchester, Gretchen Peters and Leonard Cohen.

Other artists not doing their own songs were Jennifer Warnes (an Ian Tyson song), Johnny Cash (a Tom Russell song), The Bluegrass Gospel Project (a Jesse Winchester song) and Swift Years (an instrumental).

Almost every track, including the four by Ron Hynes, was A-list in my book.

I would think Miss Easby should have the eternal gratitude of Canadians for enlightening them and helping them to understand their status. Perhaps they can learn enough so that the next generation might develop some individuality.

maeve, the message that GUEST Rehab11 wrote on 01 Aug 07 - 07:14 PM probably was directed to GUEST,Mary Bourdon who posted to this thread on 26 Jul 07 - 03:20 PM.

I gather from Mary Bourdon's post that she and her brother Sean and their other brother were old friends of Bruce's and I gathered from Rehab11's last post that that she knew Mary Bourdon and her brothers {and perhaps knew Bruce also}. I also gather from Rehab11's post that Sean wrote a song which contained a line about having sky where his eyes should have been. She said she couldn't remember the rest of the lyrics. And though this was very much a private conversation directed to folks who haven't seen each other for a while, and it would be interesting to read the words to that sky song.

That said, I also would like to welcome to Mudcat GUEST,Mary Bourdon GUEST,Rehab11, and any other guest posters on this thread.

But on second thought, perhaps Rehab11 can not get on pm here because that she {he?} didn't join so can't use Mudcat pm {private message} system.

In case guests aren't aware of this, joining Mudcat is easy. Just click on Membership near the top right hand corner and follow those instructions.

And if you do join, and have problems with your password, you can email Joe Offer, the moderator of this forum.

I'm just listening to the podcast now and want, no NEED, to add my thanks to Mike for all that great radio. The guests, the choice of music, the sequencing have all been the best.

And what a guest list with the likes of Bruce Murdoch, Tom Russell, Ian Tyson, Sylvia Tyson, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins, Anne Hills, Michael Smith, Wade Hemsworth, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Noel Paul Stookey, Utah Phillips, the Klezmatics, Rosalie Sorrels, Rick Fielding, Dave Van Ronk, and so many more.

I felt a great sense of sadness when Mike told me he'd be leaving the show. The first thing folks have to understand about Mike is that he's knowledgeable about folk music and sincere in his love for it. He's a great interviewer because to him it's about the person on the other side of the microphone and he checks the background of the people he has on, so he already knows the answers to many of the questions he asks. He has an exquisite sense of when to redirect, clarify or let his guest go on. That is rare in my experience with radio shows--and I've done many of them over the years. However, the quality of the man and his love for the music and people who make it shows in the transition. Gerry Goodfriend is up to speed on the way things are done, and while I know that Gerry will add his personal stamp, I also know the show will maintain its high quality standard, because Gerry is one good guy with a love for music that rivals Mike's. CKUT FM will continue to be in good hands.

As to a festival for next year: I truly hope there will be one, Adrien. Perhaps you don't know, and if you don't you should, that it is a wonderful event. It's well organized (and I won't embarrass you by singling you out for praise in that regard, but praise you deserve). It was a pleasure to meet many of the festival committee members and people who did so much of the dog work to ensure that the folks on stage were treated like some kind of visiting VIPs and the folks in the audience were treated to a well-run festival. You have done with a cast of tens what many other festivals with a cast of hundreds have failed to do: namely, you make the performers feel appreciated and valued. That ain't as common as it should be.

Thanks to your fire department, I was given a tour of two pieces of apparatus--their rescue vehicle and a rapid attack vehicle. They are a neat bunch of guys, and I was able to take away a good idea regarding motor vehicle stabilization for our department to consider.

The people who displayed and sold their crafts were so polite and friendly. In fact, there were no miserable people there at all. When Bob, Chris and I took 20 minutes to prepare for the set, we went to the barn to park it and practise. I never leave my guitar unattended anywhere, ever, at all, under any circumstance, period. I did there and wasn't the least worried. Parking was great, seating good, bathrooms available and camping area for people with trailers or tents were to hand.

Many people who'd stayed here and there at the festival made mention of the friendliness of the town's people and merchants.

The stage crew was something else. It was so good to hear and see them keeping track of the clock and ensuring that performers stuck to their times. It was so enjoyable, and I want to thank you for making it so. My one regret was not having enough time to sit and relax with my friends. Another 7,642 hours would have been nice. If you invite me again, I will be sure to get there and stay from Thursday night until Monday morning. However, I did get to meet some folks from the Mudcat and also re-meet some friends from 35 years ago. There were personal highlights for me, but right up there with that has to be seeing and hearing Noah Zacharin again, meeting his lovely partner who is also a fantastic singer/musician, and having the opportunity to sit with the two of them and write a song together from 1:00 - 4:30 AM, Sunday. Noah's guitar work was right on, and he wasn't at all bothered by syncopations. Laura Fernandez's voice is beautiful, and her harmonies were crucial to the song's development. Noah is a fine lyric writer and he knows when the rules should be ignored. It was an experience I will treasure, because egos got left at the door and we were able to put together a song that absolutely rocks. It is at once new and exciting, old and familiar. We still have to look again at the third stanza, but the rest is as good as anything I've heard in years, and like the man said, it does the job. Thanks to you both. More tomorrow about specific people.

good to hear you again old friend.... even a week or so later.. I was in BC doing some session work while this was transpiring...the thought was there. Glad that Mike archives the shows for later listening. Brought back memories, esp. knockin' around with you and Gagnier. Keep working on the guitar, I've never stopped and always find something new when I play.... Willie Dunn and I hooked up about 10 years ago. Ended up touring and recording together for awhile. He remains one of my closest friends. We helped each other out of some personal doldrums. He's playing in Lunenburg this week-end, by the way. Migmaw country and the bluenose...so he still gets out there every now and then.. I once had supper at Vignault's house in Deux Montanges...nice man.. I used to knock around a lot on the other side of the linguistic/cultural scene of Quebec. Still do a bit. I was lucky. Still am. funny he married a blue-eyed blonde from TMR, tho.
The Gagnier song that was mentioned earlier was 'San Mescalito' written during the early Castenada period and enhanced by certain substances. I miss him... Hi Mary.... thanks Bruce.. much luv Ron

RON. I have thought of you for years, wondering where you were and whether you were still makin' music. Also, someone in Montreal was askin' after Willie and all I could say was he'd better be makin' music, too. I guess we've all come from "School days, school days, good old broken rule days." Hi back at you with warmest regards. When you're in touch with Willie tell him that, well, just tell him.

Bruce, I sure will, I expect to see him later this month in Ottawa. He was given an Aboriginal life-time achievement award in Toronto. also a film-makers award, 2yrs. ago in Edmonton. Better late than never. He looked okay in the tux, too. he's bow-tie sticking straight out like it was excited or something!! maybe he was just happy to see Tootoosis.... heh heh...
here's my email address, ron.bankley (at)gmail.com   I'd like to send you some of the recordings we've been doing, also some of mine. We've been out of touch far too long big brother.... lots of stories to tell.... you made my day....... much luv   Ron

Mary, it's your old Mtl. roomate, Cat. Ron (Rawn, of old)just sent me the link to Bruce's show with Mike, and I then told him that I'd been trying to google contact info for you with no success; he pointed me to this thread. I've thought of you soooo many times over the years - the memory of you always brings a smile. (I'll never forget your Lily Tomlin telephone operator impersonation!) I also can hear your voice still, singing Spanish Boots, or Let Me Be Your Woman.

And yeah, it was so great to hear Bruce again! I just tried the addy you gave Bruce on 26 July 07, and my ISP returned it as undeliverable. Hope I don't get spammed now, but here goes, using code, AT for @: fringy(AT)telus.net. (Bruce, or anybody remembering me from Mtl. days, bring it on!)

After 'the crash' I lost it. If you're still on that website, could you give the link again? 'Cause I think some of the folks in here would like it. A lot. I think it was a Nashvile site?

DENNIS LAKUSTA: 'Run With You'
DJL 001
Review by Barry Newman

Formerly a railway worker and a cab driver, Lakusta (now 50) bought his first guitar at a Vancouver pawnshop on an impulse when in his early twenties. His melodic songwriting reflects a vast wealth of experiences and inspirations - being on the road, his Metis roots, the late Lenny Breau, damage to the environment, a friend who succumbed to breast cancer - with very subtle & effective chord changes and beautiful lyrical phasing.
'Wonders' is Dennis' tribute to nature (in particular, BC's Nicola Valley) which features very sweet and haunting chants, as does 'Let The River Run', a lament about chemical contamination of our rivers & streams.
Musicians include Ron Bankley (lead guitar & harp), Tammy Fassaert (bass), Nancy Taylor (backup vocals), Doug Thornton (fiddle & viola). Produced by Dennis with Ron Bankley, recorded & mixed at Big Blue Fish Studios and mastered by Don Blegg at Pacific North Studios.
Dennis Lakusta's CD is a wonderfully warm and soothing delight... perfect medicine for the end of a hectic day. Contact:

I am moved back to Michigan, Bruce, and overcoming a ton of problems that come from leaving a house for 2 1/2 years. Add that to the fact that my current assignment involves Smithfield and organizing slaughter/packinghouse workers in South Dakota, northwestern Iowa, and northeastern Nebraska, which means I fly out on Monday, and fly home on Friday, and it makes it difficult to get it done. But we are managing. I am playing a bit of music out here, and coming to know some Mexicano musicians, which ought to have an interesting influence on my music. I am having to use my Spanish, which I haven't done on a daily basis in some years, but it is coming back nicely.

Ah ..... the life of a union organizer/folksinger. It ain't fer everyone, but it is who I am. Hope we get the chance to sing together one day. I wanted to make the Canadian gathering so badly, but I just couldn't squeeze it in with the move.

All the best,

Mick

hey Cat, I'll get you a copy of 'Run with You' as soon as I unpack a few more boxes. Maybe next month. His new one should be out early next year. I've left trax all over it...

To Aziz and DeeDee, I remember the words to San Mescalito, played it many times with the 'Ghost Rider' himself.... also, 'Bird's Eye View', ' Circle Harbour Parable' and of course 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind'.... the lyrics are sparse to Mescalito, a lot of repetition, but the music is haunting...Spanish/Mexican feel.. Tom Russell would have fun.. I could sit down and record a version for y'all, I pack a small digital studio around, just in case.. easier that a 750 lb., 2 in. Studer. So get in touch, and I'll see what I can do.... Ron

            

San Mescalito pray for me now por favor
I'm lost on the high range and feeling so strange
and I can't find the door
Lost in the strange way out on the range
Never been here before

I'm free as the dogs and I fly with the crows, na na na na na
I climb on the wind and talk to my friend
And I don't need my clothes

I raised up my head and looked at his face na na na na na
I felt I would die there were pieces of sky
where his eyes should have been.....         Sean Gagnier

well, Aziz, you got to hear it, but you're right.... there's a haunting minor key chorus... but it resolves now and then, which gives some hope to the listener... due to recent interest, perhaps i'll record it one of these days along with a couple of other songs by Sean. Sketches for the archives..I wouldn't want to see it all forgotten.
there was a funny episode of the Simpsons where Homer ate a bunch of 'magic' jalepeno peppers, and ended up 'lost on the high range', but was befriended by a talking coyote whose voice was done by Johnny Cash... brillant..... i'll let you know when it's recorded, in a few weeks i reckon.... Ron

I always thought Sean, read the book before or after a trip that had opened a window for him, and that he experienced similiar to what writer had. Those strange states of conciousness that one can be in. Even Wayne Dyer on new pbs show quoted old man saying One day woke up and knew I had no need of a personal history. being like dogs and birds   free no need for clothes or diff public selfs true to his soul the pieces of sky meaning spirit or soul too high to get caught up down here.   That is what it meant for me..

the Blue Lantern on Stanley St. Dylan played there too, early on. It changed names and owners a few times. The Seven Steps, The Rainbow. There was a room downstairs called the Totem Pole, used to play there occasionally with a band "The Urge", first saw Bruce, Sean, Van Ronk and many others up close and personal.It's now a 'Subways'...

"The Blue Lantern" AKA "Le PotPourri"

June 28 , 1962: An unknown folksinger by the name of Bob Dylan plays Montréal for the first time at the back of a small club right around the corner from radio station CKGM, then situated at 1455 Drummond. The club is known at this time as "Le PotPourri" (later The Seven Steps), located at 1432 Stanley Street. Dylan is booked for 4 evenings and is payed $125.00 for his total stint, playing in front of only a handful of nightly patrons. Dylan extends this first Montréal visit by performing an additional one-nighter on July 2nd at The Finjan Club on Victoria Street.

I think the Dylan tape from the Finjan was actually recorded by Jack Nissenson and that Michael Nerenberg eventually ended up with it. It's become a fairly common Dylan bootleg and is quite easy to come by in CD form on the Dylan bootleg sites.

I was just listening to Mike Regenstreif interviewing Noah Zacharin on yesterday's Folk Roots/Folk Branches and Mike and Noah were talking about David Bromberg. Noah said something about Bromberg touring again after many years and Mike responded by saying something along the lines of (I'm paraphrasing) sometimes an artist needs to go away from music for a period of years before coming back better than ever. I thought of Bruce Murdoch when he said that.
