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.
