Stone Soup

Stone Soup

Catriona Vega’s first Cortes Radio program consisted of live performances into a single mic. She launched “Stone Soup” after returning to Cortes Island about 2012. It is:& “A cup of folk, a cup of world, a dash of Hip Hop, a splash of the jazz and blues with a healthy dose of Canadian artists.” April 11, 2021 March 21, 2021 March 15, 2021 March 7, 2021 Feb 28, 2021 - Stone Soup Stone Soup - Monday - Feb 22, 2021 Stone Soup - Monday, Feb 15, 2021 Stone Soup - Monday, JAN 25, 2021 Stone Soup: Monday January 11, 2021 Stone Soup: Monday, Dec 7, 2020 Stone Soup: Monday, Nov 30, 2020 Stone Soup: Monday Nov 9, 2020 Some of her global perspective may come from having taught English as a second language in both Eritrea and Ecuador. Catriona named her program Stone Soup because the ingredients are coming from many people. “At the beginning it was a jumble. Then I decided to separate it out: folk the first hour and world the second and I do throw in some jazz and some blues and some funk and whatever…” One of her favourite songs: Interview: How the world got into Stone Soup In The Podcast How Cortes Radio, CKTZ 89.5 FM has changed since she first became a DJ, around 2006, and what she misses from the station’s past.

Sometimes mellow, sometimes rockin’. Encorporating all styles of music through a lens that is rose coloured and full of positive energy. A weekly organic process, a playlist that evolves out of life every day. As a work with my headphones on or walk through scenes and stores and chat with friends, I have a little book where I take notes, write down songs, references and artists names. This is my treasurehunt for new music. These weekly playlists are constantly evolving, inside of my mind and heart and spirit. The Misty Morning Hop was born & created with babes in arms, special by me Sassparilla in the good ol daze of ’04ish.”  ? March 29, 2021 ?
