Here it is, the YouTube version of S01 E01 of Martin at the Crossroads!
The show is somewhat basic in production. In any case, the content is most important. Chelsea was a wonderful guest. Her story warmed my heart from the first time I heard it. I hope to spend more time at the tribal centre in future. The ‘Big House’ is a special place for me now. I’m happy that it is just minutes away from where I live.
For the production stsrting in September I hope to have a new intro and some graphics included in the show.
I write this Saturday morning and it is now day two of the VIMF which is, of couse, the acronym for the Vancouver Island MusicFest. Yesterday (Friday) was a wonderful experience as I wandered around looking at the food, the people, and the vendors. Of course the music was wonderful too! The venue is amazing! The mainstage area is massive and then there are stages all over the place. The Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds are expansive and both open fields and forests. Some of the stages are nestled into the forest and I look forward to checking them out today! Of couree I will have more to report to you here.
Today, we tape some segments for my show. They will all be aired at a later date on ShawTV!
Looks like I will be going to the Vancouver Island Music Festival this weekend. Since I’m back in the talk show host saddle, I have the means to go and do some interviews as a member of the media.
I am always looking for a personal story, so don’t expect a lot of celebrity news, expect more from the people that make it happen and the people who volunteer throughout the weekend to make this one of BC’s premier music events. This year the line up of talent is magnificent. From country to world music, there is something for everyone. Camping is sold out, so you might have to ask me nicely to set up your tent in my back yard. I have room, but I get first priority for the coffee in the morning and of course, first rights to the shower!
Have a look at the festival here. I will be on my own at times and also with the wonderful folks at ShawTV – North Island.
Watch for me. I’ll be the one with the microphone in my hand!
