This week's episode featured plenty of new and newly-rereleased jazz that leans to the more "out there" side of the genre plus a variety o'stuff from other types of music. Highlights for me included the two MOI tunes from We're Only In It For The Money (one of my top 10 albums), the Soft Machine tune, "Happy for you" by Polar Bear, and the Frantics (boot to the head!).

Another highlight was the interview I conducted with singer-songwriter-musician Elizabeth Shepherd. She called from a phone booth in Lake Superior Provincial Park and filled us in on aspects of her music and talked about her latest tour (which will bring her to Calgary and Bragg Creek later this week). Many thanks to Elizabeth for taking time out of her travels to talk with us.
