Pool time

Happy Canada Day to you, happy America Day to my American friends finding the blog. Back from holiday in Kelowna. I DJ’d a wedding at the Hotel El Dorado. Oh man it was hot, but a great adventure. Coral and I brought the kids and visited with her Dad, brother and Roberta. They have a beautiful house up on the hill over looking Okanagan Lake. The weather was closer to what you’d expect in Las Vegas. Scortcher, but Grandpa Rob and Roberta put in a pool, so it was all good.

Now I am at the radio factory for a couple days and listening to some new music.

LibertinesBritish rockers The Libertines are putting out a record called Anthems for Doomed Youth on September 4th. Their third album will be their first in 11 years! The single “Gunga Din” was premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC show.

The band is currently playing festivals in the UK and recent;y took the stage at Glastonbury.

“The Libertines will always be the band that defined a generation. Their return is one that matters.” — NME

That is bold…but I will say my wife Coral always loved these guys.



The Fratellis are another UK (Scottish) band with new music. Their record, Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied is out at the end of August on the 21st.

The Fratellis will also be in Vancouver on September 30th at The Commodore. Here is the first single, “Baby Don’t You Lie to Me.”

Sure is a punchy song. You’ll be singing along by the end of the first listen.

Go with yourself.
