So, an admission: whenever someone mentions Timeraiser, the annual art auction that took place this past weekend at the National Gallery of Canada, I immediately think of this horrifying guy. And then I end up mildly terrified. 

But! The good news is that none of the Timeraiser-related guests who descended upon our studios in the basement of the University of Ottawa for this episode of Apartment613 Live are in the business of harvesting human souls, as far as I know. We chat with Paul Sharp, one of the many artists whose work was available to be purchased with a handy donation of volunteer hours. We speak with Amanda Munday, one of the organizers of the event—now in its fifth year here in the capital. And we get in touch with Tessa Mintz of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation—one of the groups that will benefit from those art-loving volunteers—to discuss global entrepreneurship week.

And of course, we play a whole schwack of good music, while also mangling the name of one album at the start of the show (sorry, guys in the Mohawk Lodge, your new album is not self-titled but rather called Damaged Goods) and playing the wrong Jenn Grant song at the end. Volunteer-powered radio, everyone!

Playlist:

  • The Mohawk Lodge, "Using Your Love"
  • Rah Rah, "I'm a Killer"
  • Dave Norris and Local Ivan, "There's Lonely, There's Lonelier"
  • Cuff the Duke, "The Ballad of Poor John Henry"
  • Jenn Grant, "All Year"
  • Jenn Grant, "You'll Go Far"

Hola, Apartment613 Live listeners! This week, we air a fantastic two-part interview we originally recorded during the Ottawa International Writers Festival with the multi-talented Jian Ghomeshi,  host of CBC Radio One arts and culture talk show and—more recently—author of the coming-of-age autobiography 1982. (And also a purveyor of fine granola, in case you didn't know.) 

But if turning the microphone on one of Canada's most notable radio personalities isn't enough reason to tune in, we also catch up with the folks behind new Ottawa "underground" restaurant Revelry House. Plus, there's your weekly dose of new Canadian music—including tunes from The Luyas, A.C. Newman, and the Hilotrons. So are you going to give us a listen? Of course you are.

Playlist:

  • The Luyas, "Traces"
  • Foam Lake, "True Hearts"
  • A.C. Newman, "Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns"
  • The Darcys, "Peg"
  • Hilotrons, "Emergency"

It’s the Halloween episode of Apartment613 Live, everyone! So brace yourself for a chilling hour of terrifying, bloodcurdling—er, actually, to be honest, we didn’t include too much in the way of traditional frights. Unless you count the shrieking pumpkin toy I couldn’t resist using on-air a few times.

Then again, maybe you’re terrified by the idea of dozens of plaid-wearing cyclists taking over the city's streets, gnawing on the flesh of any drivers or pedestrians they encounter! If that's the case, commence trembling, because we got Chris Sheppard of local microbrewery Kichesippi to tell us all about the city’s first ever Plaid Parade—a big part of Support Local Month here in the capital. We also chatted with Urban Craft coordinator and co-founder Krista Leben about the city’s demonic late fall/early winter craft show scene. And we spun eeeeeeeevil tracks from the likes of Zeus, Esmerine, Aidan Knight and Death From Above 1979.

So download away, avid listeners! Download—if you dare.

Playlist:

  • Zeus, "Anything You Want Dear"
  • Aidan Knight, "A Mirror"
  • Esmerine, "A Dog River"
  • Lindi Ortega, "Murder of Crows"
  • Fellow, "Sold Your Soul to a Landfill"
  • Evening Hymns, "Dead Deer"
  • Death From Above 1979, "Romantic Rights"
