It’s a bitter sweet Apartment613 Live this week. We devote the entire show to Ottawa’s weekly arts and culture paper, the Xpress. This week’s issue of the Xpress is the final print edition and, we learned this evening that the Xpress website will also soon be shutting down. It’s the end of an Ottawa institution and we devoted an hour of radio to a feature-length chat with Guillaume Moffet, Editor in Chief of the Xpress; Ben Welland, Xpress photographer; and Fateema Sayanti, former Xpress Editor in Chief and culture columnist and contributing editor at Ottawa Magazine.
It’s a not-to-miss tribute to our favourite weekly. Thanks to all the writers, photographers and editors that made the Xpress great. You’ll be missed.
For this week’s show we plan music from both Fevers and the Sound of Lions, who are playing a tribute show to the Xpress this coming Friday at Mavericks. The show will also feature some favourite photos from Ben Welland’s years of shooting the local Ottawa cultural scene.
