In one week, the Twisted Pines Music in Movies Festival kicks off in Midland and Penetanguishene.  From May 9-22 there will be nightly presentations of movies about music followed by great live performances, lectures and more.  During the daytime, festival performers will be going to local schools.

In this special podcast I play the trailer for Amazing Journey, the Story of The Who, (May 9, North Simcoe Recreation Centre with a performance by the Wholigans). Paul Northcott gives an overview of the events festival. I play a trailer for Song Sung Blue, a documentary about a couple who have a Neil Diamond and Reba McIntire Tribute act (Sunday, May 11, 2008 at the Inn at Bay Moorings followed with perfomances by the Great Lake Swimmers and the Metis Fiddler Quartet). .  I close the podcast with the trailer for All Hat which can be seen on May 12, 2008 at the Inn at Bay Moorings followed with a perfomance by theLive Performance of The United Steel Workers of Montreal.

Information and tickets for the festival can be found at

I’m having some trouble with an overzealous indexing bot repeatedly scraping the media files on my site thousands of times.  I’ve temporarily restricted access to all the podcast files of For the Sake of the Song while I straighten this out.  I should have things back up tomorrow or Saturday.  Thanks for your patience.

UPDATE: May 2.  It turns out it was an overzealous indexing bot but there was no significant impact to the site.  I’ve turned all the podcast episodes back on and everything should be working properly.  Sorry for the one day break in the availability of my podcast.
