ghostbusters-810x433

One of Vancouver’s most haunted properties was recently sold and will be redeveloped into condos!

The house sits at Cambie Street and King Edward Avenue, right in the vortex of densification, and is haunted!

Daily Hive points out these legends of terror!

It sits on a First Nations burial ground: Legend has it that the original settlers of these lands don’t want you disturbing their final resting place.

The couple, the baby, and the crib: The new occupants of the house put their baby in its crib one night. They went back to their rooms, and soon after they heard the baby screaming and crying. The couple ran into the nursery to find the baby at the edge of the window sill.
The family that just moved in: A new family that finished their big move into the house went out for dinner. But when they returned, they found all of their luggage and clothes folded and packed neatly, and they took it as an ominous sign warning them to leave.

The family on the lawn: A new family had just moved in and went to sleep in their new home. The next day, they woke up on the lawn with all their boxes and suitcases next to them.

The woman in the window: A passerby on a bike saw a “For Sale” sign on the front lawn. The realtor had just finished an open house, locked up, and was leaving for the day. The passerby asked if the house had been sold, she replied, “no, not yet. Not much interest in this place, if you know what I mean.” Moments later, the passerby saw a lady-like figure passing by the second storey window.

CFOX Vancouver imaging producer Jamie Ellard wanted to use a child’s voice to freshen up the “rock poetry” imaging that airs before some recurrent songs.

My 9-year-old daughter Madelyn came into the studio and put down her voice with Jamie.

Kaleo is in town for two sold out shows at The Orpheum tomorrow and Wednesday.

We talk about moving from Iceland to the United States. What he loves about living in the US and how the two cultures aren’t as different as we might think. He talks about what he misses most Iceland, his inspiration for music and how he crafts a song. We yap a little about the album A/B and specifically the song “Broken Bones.”  We also talk about his travelling bar on the tour bus and his love of a classic craft cocktail. He ways the guitar tech mixes up a choice whiskey sour. Also the dude is friends with UFC fighter Gunnar Nelson. Huh.

And here’s the video…you gotta scroll to the 8:38 mark because there is a title screen for awhile.

Wild Cub principle Keegan DeWitt took a pause in the rock & roll tour schedule to call into The Zone. Here are a couple clips from that chit-chat.

Keegan shares the origin story for their much mega hit, “Thunder Clatter.”  Keegan says the idea for the song happened the week he met the woman who would eventually become his wife!

Then I asked Keegan about the song “Colour” which also touches on relationships. But this song talks about those tumultuous partnerships we enjoy in our 20s.

We’ll get a chance to see Wild Cub when their tour with Bleachers rolls through Vancouver on November 8th. The concert will be at The Rio Theatre.

I had the chance to yap with Mark Foster of Foster The People last week.  We chatted about a bunch of stuff including some world travel the man got up to.  He talked about going to India, and how that changed the way the man will operate his life!  Sounded like quite the spiritual journey.  Back in LA, the man decides to call the new Foster The People record Supermodel…why is that?

Foster The People will be at Squamish… hit it up.

Interesting story out of NPR the other day.  Imagine Dragons’ “radioactive” has sat on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a record 77 weeks.  Why is that?  According to NPR…. religion.  NPR Pop Critic Ann Powers says, “It taps into one of rock’s favorite subject areas, and that is religious or spiritual imagery.  It’s like an apocalyptic theme. It’s end times. It’s straight out of Revelation.”

And she says its not the only  mainstream song on the charts borrowing from God.  Check out OneRepublic’s new Much Megahit “Counting Stars.”  Powers says, “That’s the power of pop music in America.  It can absorb all of the most important influences in our lives. And certainly, for many, many people, spirituality [and] religion, specifically connected to Christian traditions, are important. It’s hardly a new thing, but we always seem to crave it again.”

Madelyn
My daughter Madelyn goes to preschool…and to help raise some money we’re selling coupon books.  So much savings!  And just $25.  If you are into saving money as much as I am… throw me an email at jeremy@thezone.fm and we can sort out how you too can get your very own coupon book, and join the legions of people who are already saving.

Working in radio… I understand the power of a well produced audio commercial to move some units.  I asked Zach on the creative team to produce the commercial and he was so kind to make some time.  Thank you Zach!  You’ll also hear Caleb and Chelsea from Creative on the commercial.
