Roots Radio Thursday on RTDS – Dec 13

Guitar in Woods

Last week, we launched Roots Radio Thursday on Radio That Doesn’t Suck, three one-hour radio shows with a distinct Canadian folk/roots flavour. In addition, music played between airings of these shows is also be largely Canadian folk/roots music.

Coming up this week:

At 9:00 AM, 3:00 PM and 9:00 PM EST, The Andy Frank Show features a visit from singer/songwriters Nancy Dutra and Kirsten Jones, and Sue Peters takes a look back at Toronto’s famous Horseshoe Tavern’s 65 year history on Sue’s News. Plus you’ll hear a dozen mostly new Canadian folk/roots tracks, including selections from Trent Severn, Dustin Bentall and the Smokes, and John Wort Hannam.

At 11:00 AM, 5:00 PM and 10:00 PM EST, Bill Garrett presents The Open Chord. Bill Garrett draws upon his personal collection of recordings that spans some forty years, and covers music from the folk revival of the fifties and sixties to today’s contemporary songwriters. Today The Open Chord profiles Karine Polwart and guitarist Dave Clarke.


At 1:00 PM, 7:00 PM and 11:00 PM EST, Episode 2 of The Songwriter’s Workshop with David Newland features a conversation with Borealis recording artist Eve Goldberg. A writer of deceptively simple, accessible, singable songs in the true folk tradition, Eve brings a unique, personal perspective on North American song-craft, and a perhaps-surprising passion for the work of Paul Simon.
