The 2018 Junos

After catching a bit of the 2018 Junos I realized that a few people that I saw on TV have actually been in studio with me!

Anna Hill – Episode #63 – What does Anna have to do with the Junos? Nothing really. Except, I saw her on the TV broadcast! She was sitting beside Jim Creeggan of the Barenaked Ladies. (They’re partners!)

Jim Creeggan –  Episode #51 – Now in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Barenaked Ladies!

Maestro Fresh Wes – Episode #100 – Wes was nominated in the Rap category at this year’s Junos.

Mike Downie – Episode #88 – Mike Downie is, of course, the older brother of Gord Downie and accepted (at least once) the awards that Gord won. At this year’s Junos, Gord won Songwriter of the Year, Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Artist of the Year.

The Barenaked Ladies in Ottawa

The Barenaked Ladies | Karim Kanji

Finally. I finally saw everyone’s (in Canada, at least) favourite homegrown boy band: The Barenaked Ladies. I few of us hung out in Ottawa last weekend and found out that the Ladies were playing that Saturday night. There were no tickets available so I did the next best thing. I emailed Jim Creggan (name drop!) and asked him if he had any extra tickets to sell. He didn’t.

But he invited us to come to the show and hang out backstage! Yes!
