Radio Free GAK Episode July 6, 2009

rfg #73 - "Just the saviour on the Skytrain" (2009 July 06)

7:28am - 9:01am

Peter Gabriel's soundtracks to Birdy and The Last Temptation of Christ form the crux of this episode. Chamber pop, nostalgic hip hop and what I guess is world music constitute part of the ceremony. The Calgary airport wifi bewilders me. Most of this episode was sorted in the guesthouse of a cottage along Copps Lake somewhere in Southern Ontario, amongst the loons and fireflies.
