Video interviews have been a big part of the The GATE practically from the beginning, and I love some of the memories I’ve uncovered from the early days while I’ve been working on The GATE’s 20th anniversary.
Happy Canada Day! This year the country is celebrating Canada’s 146th birthday, and I thought it was worth putting together a little video playlist to celebrate the holiday with some of the best home grown music.
South of the border, down America way, you folks may not have heard of k-os, and I think that’s a bleeding shame.

Like I said back in 2009, k-os’ “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman” is hands down one of my favorite songs from last year, and his album Yes! was one of the best albums too.
As I type this post I’m listening to the song for 2009. It’s insanely addictive, and even though you don’t know it yet, when this track hits you’re going to wonder why you don’t own this guy’s CD.
The song is “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman,” the artist is k-os, and it’s really that good. Bring on all the other big releases of the year – this is going to be the song to beat in ’09.

Toronto’s Edge 102 took over the Kool Haus for the 2006 CASBY Awards (as in, Canadian Artists Selected By You), which were hosted by Dean Blundell and a string of other DJs from the station.
Tonight was an interesting little change from the rest of November’s movie barrage – it was Edge 102‘s CASBY Awards over at the Kool Haus – an event I’ve missed since Edge started doing it, but finally had a chance to check out this year.
