The Homegrown Show Fall 2018

The Homegrown Show Fall 2018

Homegrown Show with Hurricane Rena - Sun: 1:00-3:00 PM The Homegrown show has been playing on Cortes Radio since 2012. It features local and Canadian music, especially artists from the west coast. The genres are open, but it tends to feature folk music, country, rock and blues, particularly with a west coast theme, or subjects that celebrate our lives on the BC coast. However, I like to play a few songs from Atlantic Canada as well in each show. I try to include a humorous or novelty song each show as well. These can be from anywhere. Spoken word also gets played on the show, and I would welcome more recorded poetry to include, as well as short stories, taking a bit of a literary direction as well as the music. The well respected works of Stewart MacLean and Wade Davis are two examples of Canadian literary work that I would like to include more of, as well as local radio plays. It would be awesome to revive the lost art of the radio play on the Homegrown show and showcase local creativity.
