Back in 2015, we partnered up with the great Toronto radio host/encyclopedia of music/maker of a mean lasagna (from what I hear), Luca Capone and hosted some episodes of his weekly radio program the Night Shift. We recently reached out to Luca to see if he would be interested in teaming up with us again and he was! So keep your eyes and ears open for more great content from Luca.
Tune into The Night Shift every Wednesday from 9-11 PM on CJRU 1280 AM.
On this episode of The Night Shift, I chatted with amazing Alanna Stuart and Ian ‘Pho’ Swain of the fantastically brilliant duo known as Bonjay!
We talked about the experimental and electronic soulful prog-dancehall sounds of their new LP, Lush Life, which is out TODAY, as well as the stories of the way we live in cities today and the people searching for their place and finding themselves in these cities and communities, the soundtrack to Ottawa’s legendary shawarma scene, taking in the serendipitous sounds from the likes of Hamilton, Virginia Beach, Bristol & Kingston, Jamaica, which Canadian indie rock God provided a particularly poor radio interview experience for one half of Bonjay, the deep intercontinental connection between Ace Of Base and ABBA, touching on the sounds for the future of Bonjay, finding affinity with the deeply imbedded Caribbean culture of London, analyzing the fusion flavours behind the PER-ROTI, AND MORE SENSATIONAL STORIES FOR SERIOUS MUSIC NERDS!
