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 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.

Follow Luca on Twitter and/or Facebook to keep up to date with all things The Night Shift.

On this episode of The Night Shift, I was honoured to chat with Canadian music legend, Jay Crocker, about his project JOYFULTALK! We talked about manifesting the energy of new album Plurality Trip, modifying and manipulating instruments to search for new soundscapes, channeling the collaborative powers of Shawn Dicey and the musical ethos of not being trapped, and instead, controlling time, melody and pitch, if the situation requires it, old school avant-jazz projects like Taksi and NOmoreShapes and the spirit of jazz and it’s many interpretations used as a palette for musical ideas, which Calgary jazz club kicked out Jay’s band during a performance for getting awkward with experimentation, the connection with Alice Cooper and old school Newfoundland psych-rock, how the Godfathers of the Calgary underground music scene, Chris Dadge and Bug Incision, were able to comfortably marry together experimental and pop-centric music communities, how Upstream and the OBEY Convention are holding it down in Nova Scotia for music fans of all ages & MANY MORE TALES FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN MUSIC, CROSS-CANADA ADVENTURES, AND SUSHI!
