FredPenner

My guest today is a household name to 2 generations of Canadians.  Fred Penner is a children’s entertainer who had a long running program on CBC television throughout the 80s and 90s called Fred Penner’s Place.  His music has been a strong influence upon me and many other children’s performers.  I sat down with Fred in my friend, luthier Ron Belanger’s booth at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  You can hear a quite a bit of the vibe from the festival and the other vendors in the background. It was an absolute thrill having Fred jam along to For the Sake of the Song.  You can find his music at fredpenner.com or at Casablanca Kids,

Canadian100club-500 px final

I’ve been working for a couple months to produce a webpage of Canadian podcasts which have produced over 100 episodes. In the podcasting world, the 100th episode is considered a milestone.   Click here to go to the Canadian Podcast 100 Club.

Congratulations to the great folks who created 100 or more episodes of the  following 21 Canadian Podcasts.

Congratulations to the great people who have brought you all this great programs.

I have compiled the list using the amazing Castroller website. Castroller is a site that allows you to easily find, manage and share collections of podcasts. Check it out.  You can find all the Canadian Century Club Podcasts at http://castroller.com/channels/centuryclub .

Please let me know if there are other Canadian podcasts with more than 100 episodes which I have failed to add to this list.  I would be happy to add them.

  • Update: Somehow, the amazing lovehatethings blog and podcast slipped under the radar of my awareness.  My loss.   Anthony Marco is a blogging and podcast machine.  In a little over a year, he has posted about 500 articles and 104 podcasts about, technology, pop culture, music, social media, the copyfight, a pinch of sarcasm and a pound of rant.  Congratulations Anthony on reaching the your 100th episode.  I’m late to the party listening to your podcast but I’m hooked.

Wow!  August 31 crept up on me.  It’s Blog Day 2009 already.  On Blog Day,  we are asked to list 5 blogs which may be of interest to our readers then link back to Blogday.org with your post.

  1. Frugal Tech points you to the best free and open source solutions to everyday tech problems.  I recently used one of their tutorials to set up a home server based on freeNAS.
  2. Michael Geist: Ottawa Law professor gives reasoned commentary on copyright, privacy and technology news.  (Looks like I picked him last year too.  Still the best source for a Canadian slant on the copyfight).
  3. GraphJam: Music and Pop Culture in Charts and Graphs. Let us explain them. OK, I’m a nerd.  And this is really funny stuff.
  4. Blaise Alleyne I thought I was the only Catholic, folk singing, songwriting, copyfighting, linux user in Canada.  Apparently there are at least two.
  5. hughmcguire.net Hugh McGuire, the co-founder of Book Oven and LibriVox blogs about writing and publishing in the Internet age.

Those  are my picks. Join the conversation and share some of your favorite blogs. You can write them on your own blog and tag it BlogDay2009 or send me some feedback on the blog at http://.ductapeguy.net by email at ductapeguy@gmail.com or by calling 206-337-0611.

Michelle Rumball

Michelle Rumball has been a fixture of the Toronto Music scene for almost 20 years.  In the early 90s she was lead singer for folk-rock legends, The Grevious Angels.  She now writes and performs as a solo singer-songwriter, as a member of the new trio Beauty Saloon, and in a number of bands around Toronto.  I caught up to her at the wonderful Rockin’ The Cradle series of concerts promoted by my sister as a venue for people who love music with babies and young children.
