MOST RECENT PROFILE OR PODCAST
“Welcome to the Homegrown Show, and I am your host, Hurricane Rena. The Homegrown show is a radio show played on CKTZ Cortes Island Community radio, 89.5 fm. It’s on from 1-3 Sunday afternoons and features local musicians from Quadra, Cortes, and Vancouver Island. A lot of Canadian music is played, songs that celebrate our unique lifestyle in the islands of the BC Coast and Western Canada in general. You can hear music on my show that you don’t often hear anywhere else, as well as poetry. The Homegrown show began celebrating our unique lifestyle in song during March of 2011, around the time of the super moon, closest the moon will be to the Earth in 27000 years.” – from Hurricane Rena’s websiteread more…
