Mulligan Stew June 12th 2021- Taking it to the Streets


Terry Wickham joins us in Hour Two of The Stew with background on Taking it to the Streets.

It’s a re-think from the Edmonton Folk Music Festival team.

Local music fans, who have space for artists to play in (Backyard, cul-de-sac,  your street,  patio etc.) can apply to host local artists with controlled audience numbers.

Terry Festival Producer of EFMF  says the response has been really good.

They’re looking forward to taking the music out of the festival setting and onto the streets. Best of all it’s featuring  Edmonton artists.

Terry tells us how to apply if you want to host an artist and what size audiences may be in play.

Applications are open for Edmonton-area residents to host a street concert and enjoy the sounds of the folk fest with their neighbors from the comfort of their own front yards. Artist fees, programming, and production are covered by the festival – hosts just need to step forward to organize their street with neighbors. Information, guidelines, and forms can be found at The deadline to apply is June 30.

Playlist highlights include New Music From

Joey Landreth

Tedeschi Trucks Band

The Tragically Hip


Norah Jones Live

Pink Floyd Live


Bob Dylan – Murder Most Fowl


The Doobies


And at the end of the first hour a demo single from my pal Jim Foster.  It’s an instrumental called “What?” 

Next week we start The Stew half an hour later as the Festival Radio Specials kick at 430-5-30pm. MST

Mulligan Stew June 5th 2021- Juno Weekend Special Guest-Bruce Cockburn


It’s June AND  the Juno Weekend.

We welcome back Bruce Cockburn.

Order of Canada. Songwriters Hall of Fame. Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Winner of 13 Junos.

He won the first-ever folksinger of the year Juno (Joni was nominated) and 50 years later is nominated this year for best instrumental album Crowing Ignites.

Bruce and I cover some of those 50 years. See what’s changed along the way. For him, the music and the Junos.

He allows us to play – for the first time anywhere – a new Demo called On a Roll.

Bruce comments on the sad state of what passes for today’s radio, how he stays engaged with folk music (he doesn’t), and a compelling comment on the tragic events taking place at The Indian Residential School  in Kamloops, BC.

The complete interview can be heard  right after The Stew Radio on Mulligan Stew Podcast (Subscribe to Spotify. Google play. Apple Podcasts)

Mulligan Stew May 22nd 2021- Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!


Bob Dylan turns 80 years on Monday.

For the many who have lived their lives inside his songs, that, in itself, is a flag they carry high.

Bob Dylan defies description. Always has.

One way to get a clearer picture of the man and his many songs, thoughts, words, and music is to talk to the artists who have played with him or were his peers or followed Bob into a life of music.

This week’s guests on Mulligan Stew include:

David Bowie – on the judgement of Bob’s generation

Robbie Robertson – what did the Band learn from Bob and Bob from them.

Colin Linden – toured in Bob’s band.

The Avett Brothers – playing The Grammys with Bob and Chimes of Freedom LP

Barney Bentall/Steve Dawson – all about Blood on the Tracks

Susan Tedeschi- Derek Trucks – on their two heroes,  Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan.

Plus great tracks from Bob.  Thank You for a memorable 80 years, Bob!

Hour ONE has

  • Sly and The Family Stone
  • Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions
  • Steely Dan
  • new Amy Helm
  • The Wood Bros
  • Jon Batiste/Leon Bridges/Gary Clark Jr
  • Etta James
  • Steve Cropper

Mulligan Stew May 8th 2021- Over I Million raised for CKUA. We celebrate with 2 hours of your music!


The CKUA spring fundraiser was a huge success. Met and matched  the 1 Million Mark Sunday dinner time.
Everyone – donor audience and staff – took several days to reset and here we are, back in  our places and spaces.
After two weeks of talking, I am seriously committed to numbing the mouth and playing all the songs and artists you wanted to hear and I wanted to play.

Many Thanks to all you donors  from myself and Allison Brock ( Wide Cut Country)  for taking us to the top.

FYI – Last Sunday between 3-6 pm you raised almost $100,000.  Yowza.


So here’s two hours of almost non-stop music that you asked for in your donation and several that I  wanted to play for you and ran out of time. As we said on the Sunday

Mulligan Stew April 17th 2021- Special Guest Greg Keelor


Mulligan Stew April 17, 2021 – in the middle of a pandemic.

The very special guest on this week’s Stew is Greg Keelor!!

  Co-Founder, co-Singer, co-Writer of one of Canada’s premier bands Blue Rodeo. Share the Love is his 6th solo album.

When asked did he know how many he has done and what the names are the answer was No.

And that was the first question. I had another 45 minutes of questions. Now what?

Greg spun his first story about he and Jimmy Bowskill sitting around, in a hash haze throwing lines and guitar licks back and forth and all of a sudden there’s an album taking shape.

They recorded it and went to a small community center at a lake to play the songs again while video cameras shot the songs for promo.

THAT recording was so good, they scrapped the studio record and went with the community hall by the lake session.

That was Greg’s answer to the second question…and we were off and running.

We cover a lot of ground with Greg and downs.  Losses both human and personal.

The album is very good. His best work yet. We both agreed that the feel of the record was much like the late ’60s in LA with Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds.

He’s a good man that Greg Keelor.

And hello Jimmy Bowskill!

If you’re interested – the complete ramble can be heard on the Mulligan Stew Podcast.  You’ve subscribed, right?

Mulligan Stew April 10th 2021-Special Guest – Sook-Yin Lee and new album jooj two for the Spring Smile


The music this week almost picked itself. In celebration of warmth on our shoulders and shots in our arms.

In normal years, we would see more smiles around us but not this year.

So please consider this April 10  Mulligan Stew your official Spring Smile.

Vancouver’s Mint Records yesterday released Soon-Yin Lee and Adam Litovitz jooj two albums 

Behind the release, there’s a very personal story – the love and loss between Sook and Adam.

“When we were making the song ‘Wrecking Heart’, Adam and I looked at each other, blown away by this song that was like nothing we’d ever written. It began with a supercharged sonic fragment he made that became the foundation of an unapologetic banger of a song that possessed and moved through us. We blasted it on the stereo, danced and air-guitared to it. Unconsciously, our lyrics seemed to telegraph our separation. “It sounds like a break up song,” he said, much to our disbelief at a time when we were very much together. But life challenges ended up pushing us in different directions. Though separated, we remained best friends, holding out hope that we would make our way back to each other. Adam landed a job scoring a TV series and I worked on our album, incorporating his notes. He said that he looked forward to playing cathartic meltdown live shows with me.
But that was not to be. Adam is no longer here. I believe he exists on other planes, in those who love him, and in our music, in his music, drawings, and writing. With this album, ‘jooj two’, I pick up the pieces of this Wrecking Heart, honoured to share our music.”

– Sook-Yin Lee


Adam took his own life. Sook-Yin patiently takes us through what happened and how it shaped the songs and her life. And yes, even though all this, we share smiles and laughs.

I’ve known Sook-Yin a  long time… I think it shows in the discussion.

The complete and very engaged conversation can be heard on the Mulligan Stew Podcast EP 151

On Spotify. Apple Podcasts and Google Play.

Mulligan Stew April 3rd 2021- We made it through Winter! Let’s CELEBRATE today. Music and Nomads 5Mtn/4Pacific


Welcome to The Stew – Year 26.  Hope you’re having a  memorable Easter weekend.

It’s another one of those “a donor sent me off in a new direction” emails.  They’re always welcome.

Donor Hour One just said – “Do what you do”

So…it’s a mix of JJ Cale, Leo Kottke, Kinks, G Love and Keb Mo, Walk off the Earth, Lake Street Dive, Ron Sexsmith, John Hiatt, Colin James, Ariel Posen and Mick Jagger with the Red Devils.

The Donor of Hour Two suggests…

“In light of so many racial divides and intolerances  to cultural differences, perhaps a focus on cultural musical influences would be a way to open the mind””

With that in mind the mix of Saturday night music includes…

Sting and Shirazee, Wyclef Jean, Taj Mahal, and Los Lobos, Toots and Keith Richards, Paul Simon and Ladysmith Black Mombasa, Los Lobos. 


New tracks from Paul McCartney/Beck and Van Morrison.

Blue Rodeo, Feist, and The Stones Midnight Rambler finish off the first Saturday of Spring.


The Mulligan Stew Podcast is very special – First it’s EP 150.

Nomadland may very well win the Oscar for Best Film. It’s been winning lots of other awards including @CriticsChoice.

We have interviews with the actual Nomads who the story, book, and screenplay were written about and who play themselves in the film.

Swankie, Linda May, Bob Wells plus the author of the book Jessica Bruder.

Happy Easter weekend all!
