Radio Centre-Ville Interview

I was featured this past Saturday in a 25 minute interview on Radio Centre-Ville (102.3FM) in Montreal. The interview was conducted by Leslie Lutsky for his show Jewish Digest.

The interview is about my documentary films and my most recent one, Posthumous Pickle Party about Simcha's Grocery on St-Laurent.

Download the full interview as a podcast here.

Stay tuned for a Posthumous Pickle Party TV date and the official DVD release announcement...

New Josh Ritter Pre-Release Single!

This was WAY too good to keep to myself.

Courtesy of the discerning ears here at Ez Sez, enjoy a free streaming sample of a brand new track from the soon-to-be-released and soon-to-be-raved-about CD by Josh Ritter called The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter (Sony/BMG, coming Aug. 21st).

Click here to hear the exhilarating new classic he whipped up called "To The Dogs Or Whoever".

Read Amazon's glowing review of the upcoming CD here. Serious raves for Josh to whom I bring hot Montreal bagels to backstage every time he plays in Montreal. Hopefully he'll be back in town soon... there's a fresh batch ready on St-Viateur according to my sources.

Bon weekend! Bon 2-post-EzSez-kinda-day too! (See the EzQuote below for today's earlier post).

OK, go enjoy the Josh Ritter song already... No sense putting this off any longer...


UPDATE: Here's a live music video for the song!

Kim Beggs - A Taste of Yukon in Montreal

(Kim Beggs "Singing With Dog", by Karen Loeb)

The sweet-voiced wonder named Kim Beggs pulled in to Shaika Café in NDG last night to play a country-folk set that pretty much melted my heart with northern twang and near-arctic soul.

Kim's from Whitehorse, Yukon, and I first heard her on Michael Enright's The Sunday Edition CBC radio show. He raved about her and then played a song called "Lips Stained Red With Wine" (listen) that captivated me something fierce. So, when the song ended I wrote the Quebec-born, Toronto-raised, Yukon-fortified Beggs an email and told her how great her song was. Later in the day she wrote back thanking me and telling me she'd love to someday play Montreal...

So I hooked her up with a gig at Shaika (thanks to booker and friend Jenny M.) and the day arrived yesterday.

(Kim and Ez, by Alexandra Yanofsky, 8/1/07)

Thanks to all who attended the show! Thanks to Kim who thanked me on stage for hooking her up with Shaika Café. Glad you were able to spend time with us here in Montreal, Kim. A total treat.
