Back in the golden age of radio, I was interviewed by CBC Radio One's David Gray on "The Homestretch," to finally settle who or what a "Lethbian" is. They've since taken down the post, but being crafty I saved a MP3 of the interview!
Yesterday, Jessica deMello from CBC Radio One’s “The Homestretch” called me for my expert opinion on the term “Lethbian.” There was some discussion about what people from Lethbridge are called, but myself and host David Gray finally settled it up.
Initially I questioned how they even made the list, but the reality is that competition for live music in Lethbridge has been sorely lacking. But when opportunity arose, they successfully filled the void that the Tongue ‘n Groove had left behind. So I must congratulate the owners of The Slice, Jesse and Tyler Freed (brothers, not husbands), for making top 50 in CBC Radio 3’s Searchlight for “Best Live Music Club in Canada!”
In case you were wondering, the winner is Phog Lounge in Windsor, Ontario. They are the smallest venue on the entire list! They must have mirrors in their washrooms…I’m sure that’s their edge.
