I recall in the very early days of the program, my occasional co-host, Alanna, "discovered" a great Toronto-based band called the Local Rabbits, from whence came my guest on this week's Hop The Fence: Peter Elkas
Peter is also celebrating a 10th anniversary! His acclaimed solo debut, Party Of One, which featured session musicians, Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith) and Doug Friesen (Dave Bidini Band, John K Samson) was released in 2004. A limited vinyl pressing of the LP and a tour will mark the occasion. Peter will be in Ottawa on Saturday night at Mavericks. I'm looking forward to speaking with him to reminisce on a decade gone by in what feels like the bat of eye.
Tune in at 5 p.m this Friday (and every Friday) at 89.1 FM in Ottawa or online at CHUO.fm
