Host, Jon Farmer, brings a musician’s ear and the heart of a fan to the airwaves with stories about performers and news about upcoming shows and releases. Tune in to hear some of your favourite acts and new bands that you didn’t know you loved.

This week we’re showcasing a few handfuls of local bands and musicians including acts from Summerfolk’s Youth Discovery series.

If you missed the live show, we will post the episode by 6pm ET.
