First off, thank you for visiting the Homegrown show’s Website. I have found for you some interesting and unusal songs for the month of January. I am also trying to get more spoken word on the Homegrown show, which means, I will be reviewing submissions of poetry, short stories, essay/talks, or radio plays for future use. I would especially appreciate those created by people on the islands, the west coast of BC, which is the Homegrown area of the Homegrown show.

Some of the highlights from January are

Cold in Canada, a parody recorded by a couple of guys in Manatoba during -45 weather. Uses the song structure of Toto’s Africa.


The Arrogant Worms with Little Leach

The Arrogant Worms with the RCMP song

and Leaving the Lagoon, a song by Glen Foster written about Manson’s Lagoon on Cortes Island, a truly local original written by a visitor from Nanimo.

These are some of the highlights of songs played in January on the Homegrown show. Thanks for listening. Check out the past shows page for full podcasts.
