Tell the Band to Go Home

Canada

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. Often, I have a different musical guest who can give us some insight into their songs and their personality. Previous guests include: David Francey, Eliza Gilkyson, Brandi Carlile, Paul Kelly, 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 The Wailin' Jennys, JP Hoe, Scott Nolan, and many more have all stopped by. If you're interested in great music, check out Tell The Band To Go Home every week.

January 9th would have been Billy Cowsill’s 67th birthday, and there are few singers that we love more than old Billy "Bud," so I felt like listening to a bunch of his work, which somehow led into a solid set of 70s am radio classics. Strange things happen on Tell the Band to Go Home. We also have a stellar new record from Paul Kelly to share, as well as new songs from Shannon Lyon and other favourites!

The new year has brought some great new music, some brand new and some new to me. One of the more interesting finds is a song about ME that’s been on iTunes for 3 years, and I had no idea! We’ve also got a great list of some of the greatest cover versions of 2014.

We’re ringing in the new year with a 5 hour marathon, including a look back at 2014, with more of the best of the year, plus lengthy tributes to two of the most important and amazing songwriters of all time, Townes Van Zandt and Hank Williams, who share an anniversary of their deaths. The men may be gone, but the music will last forever. Even with 5 hours, there was still plenty of great music left over for weeks to come!

Tell the Band to Go Home  -  December 28, 2014 - part 5  

Christmas has come and gone, but there are still some great holiday-related songs that we haven’t played yet, so just like the turkey taking up space in your fridge, it’s time to clear out these leftovers and do something with them! This is also one of our annual holiday marathon episodes, where everyone sensible stays home and takes a break from radio, but I’ve never been accused of being sensible, so instead of the usual 2 hours, this show runs for 5! That gives us plenty of time to look back at the year that was, and play a whole bunch of the best music, concerts, and live guests of 2014!

It’s just about Christmas, and although I try to resist the temptation to play a bunch of Christmas music, there’s one show where I just give in and go with it, and this is it. Here are some songs about and for the holiday season, and they won’t even give you heart burn! The worst music in the world is bad Christmas music, but there is plenty of great stuff out there, and here are some of the good ones. Merry Christmas, everyone!
