Mulligan Stew Aug 28th 2021-Remembering Charlie Watts and The Last Waltz. Plus My Name is Suzie Ungerleider


We have three separate stories to tell this week.

The loss of Charlie Watts

Remembering The Last Waltz

And My Name is Suzie Ungerleider

Most Stews have found their shape by this time in the week…

But every week throws something unexpected at you. Like the death of legendary drummer Charlie Watts.

For some music fans, the name Charlie Watts is the last name mentioned in The Rolling Stones line-up.

“and on drums…Charlie Watts”

For me and MANY music fans Charlie Watts was The Stones.

While Keith and Mick and Ronnie were wanking about center stage Charlie was the engine that drove everything.

Keith has said many times, it’s Charlie that I follow. He tells me what and where to play. He gave us all the space to create in.

The  voices in this Stew will be

Colin Linden

Russell Broom

Barney Bentall.

Suzie Ungerleider

Colin and Barney are two of the performers in Remembering The Last Waltz.  A four-night celebration in Edmonton and Calgary of the 45th anniversary of one of the greatest nights in rock and roll.

Performers also  include Jimmy Rankin, Dustin Bentall, and  Michael Bernard Fitzgerald. Producer, arranger, writer, musician Russell Broom leads a great band.


Sept 2/3 Jubilee Calgary

Sept 9/10 Jubilee Edmonton

Barney, Colin, and Russell all have strong memories of Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts and what The Last Waltz meant to them.

(when it first came out Barney saw the film 6 nights in a row)


My Name Is  Suzie Ungerleider is the latest from an artist we all knew as Oh Suzanna.

10 albums into a career that started in Vancouver,  then many years in Toronto, and now back home in Vancouver.

The new album is really well written and performed in a voice we haven’t heard from Suzie before.  Feels very much like a turning point.

As for the rest of the show, we make room for

The Everly Brothers…The Wood Brothers…Bros. Landreth.

Bill Withers Live

Steely Dan Live


The Band


Los Lobos

Fretless/Nuela Charles

Masks ON?  Let’s go!


The Complete set on interviews  Suzie, Barney, Colin and Russell can be heard on The MulliganStew Podcast  (Posts Saturday night at 6Pacific/7 Mtn)

Mulligan Stew Dec 19th 2020- Christmas in the Round-The Home Cooked Sessions!


Christmas in the Round began in the late ’70s in an old CBC  radio studio – How Old? It was above the lobby of the Hotel Vancouver.

Back then it was called Christmas Jam.

Through the guidance of Producer Susan Englebert, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Terry Frewer, Claire Lawrence and myself told Christmas stories and sang Christmas songs. Guests over those years included Valdy, Colleen Peterson and many more.

We lost our dear friend Susan Englebert to Cancer and we dedicate these shows to her memory. Her best guidance on the day was to hide the wine between songs.)

The whole idea disappeared with losing Susan and getting on with our lives and careers.

When Don Shafer created Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver Shari and I started talking about bringing back the concept as  Christmas in the Round.  Here we are at Year 4.  Guests have included  Barney Bentall, Bill Henderson, Jim Byrnes, Roy Forbes, Craig Northey, Shawn Verreault, and more.

This year we gathered on Side Door Access to raise funds for Food Banks in Toronto, Salt Spring island, and Potluck Café Society – East End of Vancouver.

The music and stories you hear came from that Web Broadcast. We thank  Shari Ulrich Mark Busse and  all involved.

Plus  Duke Paetz at CKUA for the huge assist and Corey Wood for online creative and hand-holding.

EP 112 | Jim Cuddy and Barney Bentall on Fathers Day


Hello all.

I hope you are safe and well and happy.

Welcome to The Mulligan Stew Podcast. We’re over 100 shows now…

OK. Its Fathers Day weekend.

It’s also Summer Solstice

I always hear a phrase…. “I’m in the family business”

Now, that works if your family are Store Owners, or Office Workers, Doctors. Nurses. Teachers. Farmers etc.

We have two guests today who are friends and fathers.

Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo and The Jim Cuddy Band.

Barney Bentall. Leader of Cariboo Express. High Bar Gang. BYU and his own solo career.


How has the family dynamic changed when their sons and daughters follow them in the music business.

Share the stage. Maybe even write songs together. (maybe being the keyword)

And how do family members like being the subject of songs they hear on the radio?

I was excited to get these two pals together and exchange life experiences.

We connected on Zoom and you can find the complete conversation below:

Mulligan Stew June 20th 2020- Fathers day-Guests Barney Bentall and Jim Cuddy!



Saturday is June 20th, 2020

It’s a very special weekend.

First, it’s National Indigenous Peoples Day.

It’s also Summer Solstice

Its Fathers Day


It’s National “have you seen my keys” Day

To celebrate Father’s Day, I’ve asked two music dads to guest.

Barney Bentall, who has a son Dustin and daughter Jess in the music business. Both are working on expanding careers.

Jim Cuddy has two sons Devin and Sam well on their way to careers in our music business.

Jim and Barn are pals and we trade stories of trying to help your kids without being seen as helping.

The possibility of songwriting with your family. (Tricky)

Performing with kids.

And how families react to being the subject of songs.

There’s a lot to like here.

The complete conversation can be heard by subscribing to MulliganStew Podcast (Spotify. Google play. Apple podcasts)

Or go to my podcast for the Zoom video and Audio:

EP 112 | Jim Cuddy and Barney Bentall on Fathers Day

We also have a last 30-minute jazz feature to celebrate the online events this weekend of the Edmonton Jazz Festival.

We welcome Kent Sangster – Artistic Director and Producer

Andrew Glover and play you some tracks.

Bob Dylan’s 39th album Rough and Rowdy Ways comes out Friday.

I have the true pleasure of playing an epic song – Murder Most Foul. Its 16:57 of heartfelt history based on the Kennedy Assassination.

It appears Bob has given the World another musical turning point.

Also played False Prophet..a truly great blues classic.

Got some Little Feat Live..Santana…Kinks..kd lang, and Black Pumas week our guest is Corb Lund and his just-released album Agricultural Tragic

And in two weeks Eric Burton, songwriter and lead singer of Black Pumas.

Mulligan Stew October14th 2017-Barney Bentall–The Preacher and The Drifter



As  Chevy Chase told Dan Aykroyd and  Gilda Radner  on SNL years ago..”New Shimmer is  a floor wax AND a desert topping”
Today’s Mulligan Stew is New Shimmer in music form.
Yes its 2 hours of boogie, soul, rock, and blues
BUT it’s also an interview stage…I get to interview Barney Bentall under an apple tree at this summer’s Filberg Festival in Courtney/Comox.

On Friday Barney released The Drifter and The Preacher,  his first solo album in 5 years and it’s a beauty. Strong songs with appearances by son Dustin, by pal Jim Cuddy and a song for a dear friend John Mann from Spirit of the West.  There’s also news about a John Mann night at the Commodore Nov 19 with a true all-star cast.
We also hope to find Terra Lightfoot in a car on her way to The Winspear in Edmonton. She’s opening for WhiteHorse tonight and all across the country.

Wednesday in Mission BC and Thursday at The Vogue in Vancouver.
In between all of this chat we’re also doing a guitar special.  Not your wanking,  string bending, watch my fingers guitar playing but people who actually changed music and were copied by all who followed.
Such as Clapton, Jimi, SRV, BB, Ry, Steve Cropper, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and all the guys who backed up James Brown.
Lots of pickers on this show.
Let me leave you with a thought for the day…

New Shimmer ”for the greatest shine you ever tasted”

Cheers, TDM

Bentall, Byrnes, Forbes, Mulligan, Northey, Ulrich, and Verreault (Image: supplied)

Many years ago on a CBC Radio show called Goldrush we used to celebrate Christmas by gathering in a studio and asking artists to share Christmas stories and songs.
The producer was the late Susan Englebert. This show is dedicated to her memory.
Two of the artists back then were Roy Forbes and Shari Ulrich.
Over the years we’ve always talked about how much fun it was and that we should do it again.
I never considered the possibilities UNTIL Roundhouse Radio signed on air in Vancouver and I was asked to do a one hour – 12-1PM arts and culture show.
Essentially singer/songwriters and bands playing live in studio.
As they came through I started to realize that it was possible to revive a tradition.
As Barney Bentall, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Shaun Verreault, Jim Byrnes and Craig Northey passed through the studios I asked each if they would like to do Christmas in the Round.
They all said yes.
And it is.
Recorded in the boardroom because we didn’t want to disturb the on air hosts and guests..we pushed back the furniture, dimmed the lights, opened some wines, spread out some food and had at it.
Jim Byrnes was up first because he was on stage  2 hours later  as Scrooge in a production of Bah Humbug!
Shari’s daughter Julia Graff was our audio about coming full circle.
With Thanks to our production group Monique McQueen and Cory Price. and our friends at Haywire/Okanagan Crush Pad
(Please excuse the Roundhouse Radio references..FYI..when I use Stew interviews in Vancouver I always try and leave the CKUA references in)
Here’s the line – up
Jim Byrnes – Please come home for Christmas
Craig Northey – Christmas, baby please come home
Shari Ulrich – Hear the bells ring
Barney Bentall – Christmas must be Tonight
Shaun Verreault – Rockin around the Christmas Tree
Roy Forbes – Mincemeat Tart
Group Encore
The Huron Carole (Shari lead)

Mulligan Stew Feb 9th


bentallIn hour one of this Saturdays’ show its Dustin Bentall, on the road on tour somewhere between Cleveland and Chicago.
He talks about that life and his music and of course his family.
Currrent release is the Orion EP.
Plays Calgary with Lindi Ortega Feb 16 The Palomino
Edmonton Feb 17 Avenue Theatre
Jasper Legion Feb 18
“There’s no question I’ve learned more from him than anyone else in the business. He never pushed the guitar on me but was always there to answer any questions I had, and left the actual learning up to me. I spent a few years wishing he had cracked the whip a little more but I have come to realize that the style I have developed has been a product of my own chosen influences. The old man proved over and over that he can rock with the best of them. I’ve always been really proud of that and hoped that it’s written in my DNA”
In Hour Two it’s a his Father Barney Bentall, himself on the road in the Okanagan.
Barney’s latest release is the sublime Flesh and Bone.
In addition to the theme of renewal, Flesh & Bone represents a full circle journey for Barney Bentall.
“When I started my career, we had no industry experience. We did everything ourselves – often poorly. Then came the record label and the record label dollars. For Flesh & Bone, we just went into the studio free of judgement and recorded songs the way we used to, but with a few more years under our belts, a different perspective and hopefully a little more wisdom,”
Barney Bentall has also established a sense of community within the music industry through The Grand Cariboo Opry, a one of a kind event that harkens back to a simpler time. Consisting of two generations of some of Canada’s finest roots and country musicians, The Grand Cariboo Opry is about laughter, storytelling, and the timeless sound of contemporary songwriters steeped in tradition. Regular guests include Ridley Bent, Leeroy Stagger, Barney’s son Dustin Bentall, Kendel Carson, Matt Masters, Wendy Bird, Steve Dawson, and The High Bar Gang to name a few.
With the release of Flesh & Bone Barney Bentall is set to continue his journey and share his stories with audiences coast to coast.
