Halifax Is Burning :: S03E41

Well the Halifax Pop Explosion has come and gone for another year, and I am officially zonked. Saw some great music - over 30 bands in five days! - and I truly believe this was the best HPX yet.

This week's episode of Halifax revisited some of the best moments from the festival. Music journalist, rock n' roll singer and all around fun person Alison Lang stopped by the station and together we reveled in our Pop Explosion hang overs.

Have yourself a little listen!

Halifax Is Burning :: S03E39

I hope you had your fill of turkey over the Thanksgiving long weekend. I prefer to think of this holiday as the most delicious of holidays. I was lucky enough to have THREE turkey dinners in as many days.

Coming back to the show after such a delicious break, I may have been a little slower due to an absurd amount of tryptophan and definitely a little fatter, but I was still able to bring you a cornucopia of great local music.

Check it out!
