Mulligan Stew

Mulligan Stew Jan 29th 2022-Featured guest Joey Landreth


As you know,  I’ve had the honor and giddy pleasure of following Holger’s  2 hours of Natch’l Blues for 27 years.

The majesty of The Blues has a profound effect on The Stew. This week, for example, I started thinking about how new life was breathed into the blues by the British Invasion of the mid-’60s.  Blues artists who were ignored or taken for granted in America could find a new audience in Europe and especially the UK.

That new audience included teen-aged members of The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Led Zeppelin, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Jeff Beck., Rod Stewart, Steve Winwood, etc.  When those young Brits refashioned the blues into blues rock, the music world shifted into high gear and turned the volume up to 10.

America got its own music back.  It was reimagined and very exciting.

Back to Back Laverne Baker and The Animals doing See See Rider

Back to back Muddy Waters and The Stones.

Steve Winwood – Gimme Some Loving

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss – Bobby Moore’s Searching for my baby

Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart – Willie Dixon’s  I ain’t Superstitious

Throw in some donor-requested Fats Domino / Wilbert Harrison and we’re Off and  Running.

New music from Courtney Barnett, Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers, Corb Lund,  The Fretless, and Dan Mangan!

And we finish with

Tower of Power, Gerry Garcia Band doing The Temptations, Cat Stevens, William Prince, Dylan, etc.

And our feature interview guest is Joey Landreth from The Bros. Landreth.

Joey and brother David grew up in a house in Winnipeg where their musician Father played Little Feat, The Byrds, CSN  etc.

Joey’s new solo album is called All that you dream and is a tribute to Lowell George and Little Feat.

The whole two hours has the jam to lift your spirits.  You in?

Mulligan Stew Jan 15th 2022- Ronnie Spector Tribute


Ronnie Spector has left the stage. Gone but never forgotten.  Leaving Ronettes hits like…

  • Be my baby
  • (The best part of) Breakin’ Up
  • Baby, I love you
  • Timeless.

It’s where Brian Wilson went to cool school. Amy Winehouse was pure Ronnie. From the hair to the sound.

Huge, raw voice. With an attitude. But one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet.

We start The Stew with a track you may not have heard before.

It’s Ronnie Spector singing lead vocal on Billy Joel’s Say Goodbye to Hollywood with the E Street Band. The song and the singer helped to raise some cash so Bruce Springsteen could continue his climb to the top.

All the strings were pulled by Miami Steve van Zandt.  We start with the story than the song.

Mulligan Stew Jan 8th 2022- Happy Birthday Elvis and David Bowie! (Special Guest-David Bowie)


When you think about the history of popular music – especially Rock & Roll, the names of Elvis Presley and David Bowie are always at the top of the list. Amazingly, they were born on the same day Jan 8  – Elvis in 1935 and David Bowie 1947.

I thought it was time to have a listen to artists influenced by both.

Everyone has a little Elvis in them. From The Clash to Bruce Springsteen. Bowie’s influence wasn’t just with words and music. David showed that you could write and become a character.  Then change that character every several years. Elvis stayed Elvis right up to the end. Bowie was constantly changing and bringing his fans along with him.

The feature includes artists influenced by both.

For Elvis  – Paul Simon, Ry Cooder, Billy Cowsill, Clapton, Norah Jones (Little Willies), and  Bob Dylan.

For David Bowie – Queen, Mott the Hoople, Peter Gabriel, Natalie Merchant, Rickie Lee Jones.


And I found a small portion of a much longer interview I did with David Bowie many years ago. (Thanks to Duke for the audio save)

Bowie talks about leaving his characters behind, his first impressions of touring the USA, and whether his fans have followed him through his various personas.

The Mulligan Stew Podcast is Brent Butt…who has hit the stand-up road again.

Jan 20 in Canmore and the 21st at the Arden.

Mulligan Stew Dec 31st 2021- Goodbye 2021… Hello 2022


For me…2022 will be about trying to find “balance” in my life.

Between my love of what I do and the complete love of my growing family.

So, to start a brand new year, after two chaotic ones, you and I start with a playlist that’s balanced.

Between tracks and artists that made an impression on a lot of people and tracks that pull the heart.

Between music for meal prep and music to prime the New Years Pump.

I went back to the years playlists and the songs that jumped out at me made the list.

Thank you and be safe and enjoy your 2022.

Mulligan Stew Dec 25th 2021-The Christmas Stew/Christmas in the Round Rediscovered!


The DAY has arrived.

That one day, when most of The World pauses for Christmas and the Holidays!

For many, it’s a religious time. For others, it’s a gathering of “the clan”. Family and dear friends. Unfortunately for some, it’s the loneliest day of the year.

So. How to create two hours of music that becomes a warm backdrop to all those listeners.  That was the assignment I gave myself.

The first hour features songs that give a sense of time and place. Some aren’t even Christmas songs but they speak to the feelings of the season.

HOUR TWO features a  lost episode of Christmas in the Round.

Its from the first Christmas at Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver’s East Side.

It’s a tribute to Christmas specials that Roy Forbes, Shari Ulrich and I did way back in our CBC Radio days.

The “gathering” included road warriors Barney Bentall, Craig Northey (Odds), Jim Byrnes, Shaun Verreault (Wide Mouth Mason) plus originals Roy Forbes and Shari Ulrich.

Trading songs and stories for an entire second hour of this Christmas Stew.

I hope you like this Christmas Day Christmas Stew. I was moved just putting it together.

Now, I’m going to see the one person I know who is alone and let him know he’s loved and surrounded by friends.

Maybe leave him a dram or two.

Is there someone you know is alone this Christmas?  I can only hope this music will lift your soul the way it did me.

Have a warm and wonderful  Christmas.  We will meet again on New Years Day.

It’s that seasonal fulcrum when we all start counting the days until Christmas Day.

7-6-5-4-3-2-1..  Comes The Day.

For a child, it’s pure magic!

These two hours are intended for the child in all of us. Embrace the season, remind those you love that you love them. Reconnect with family and friends.

A week from today Christmas Day arrives like an old friend.

This Saturday – the 18th – is two hours of music. Songs and artists were chosen for their passion and honesty.

We start with Ben Harper and the Soweto Gospel Choir singing Coldplay’s Fix You.

Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Fleet Foxes, Calexico, John Prine, Joni, Emmylou, Alan Doyle, Blue Rodeo, Tom Petty, Aretha, Darlene Love, The Reverend Shawn Amos and the wonderful piano of Bill Sample and many more.

And on Christmas Day to get you through meal prep and the first-ever replay of a 2015 Christmas in the Round. Sharing songs and stories are Barney Bentall, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Craig Northey, Jim Byrnes, and Shaun Verreault from Wide Mouth Mason. All together in the same room. Singing, playing and remembering past Christmas’.

Mulligan Stew Dec 4th 2021-Guest, Eric Wright/The Fretless


Welcome to the first Stew of December 2021!

Eric Wright, a founding member of the Juno winning The Fretless,  is the guest.  Their album Open House is #1 on the CKUA Top 30.

That means it got the most plays last week. Every one of the hosts can play anything they like,  so to get the most plays of ANY album is a triumph.

Eric says the Fretless are modern folk. To the ear, they sound like a rock band with violins, violas, and Eric on cello.  They happily share their creative space with other artists.

I’ve chosen four to talk about and play

Dan Mangan – Troubled Mind

Celeigh Cardinal – Earthly Days

Nuela Charles  – Stay

The Bros Landreth – Let it lie

This is one fine album.  Eric Wright ends The Stew in the second hour.

Also in that second hour

  • Blood Sweat and Tears
  • Robert Plant and Alison Krauss
  • Jon Batiste
  • Willy Nelson
  • The Band and Steely Dan (both live)

Hour One includes New tracks from

  • Joey Landreth
  • Darlene Love
  • Kenny Roby and Amy Helm
  • The Hip
  • Nathaniel Rateliff
  • Brandi Carlile


  • Ray Charles
  • Tom Petty
  • 2 from the Rolling Stones
  • Randy Newman
  • CoCo Love Alcorn
  • Los Lobos
  • Carole King
  • Darlene Love

Enjoy and stay safe.

Steve kicks things off with an extended jam on The Big Bang

Steve and many music fans believe it was Feb 9, 1964, when The Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show but Steve also riffs on the Summer of 1965 when Bob Dylan released Subterranean Homesick Blues and he’ll tell you WHY that was the Real Big Bang.
