OTTAWA. A new podcast featuring interviews with Music Insiders, Touring and Independent Bands is going live today. Called DARRYL TALKS TO BANDS, the new show sees host Darryl Spring, the well-known Canadian rock radio personality, sitting down with the artists who are performing in the Nation’s Capital and also travelling to talk to key figures in the Canadian Rock Scene .
The inaugural episode features a chat with legendary Broadcaster Alan Cross known for his syndicated radio series, “The Ongoing History of New Music”. Episode 1 also includes an in-depth interview with Ottawa hard rockers Cevilain who have a new EP “On Death & Dying” coming out on March 20th.
The new podcast’s host Darryl Spring is a 20-year rock radio veteran with a history at Toronto’s 102.1 The Edge, Hamilton’s Y108, 989 The Drive and Kingston’s K-Rock 1057. Most recently he was Program Director, Music Director and Afternoon Drive Host at Ottawa’s Rebel 1017 where he curated the stations playlist from his own music library.
His passion for music was clear to anyone that listened to his show. Darryl always made great efforts to elevate independent and emerging artists through his #RockLocal initiative, which the station continues to proudly tout to this day.
Darryl Spring says, “Artist interviews rarely happen on radio anymore, when they do its brief and offer little depth, and that means music fans are really missing out. The goal of my podcast is to provide people who are passionate about rock with a new and innovative connection to the Canadian Music Industry and the bands and artists they love and support.” Darryl Spring has a reputation as a knowledgeable interviewer among both bands and audiences. Past interviews include Hugh Dillon of The Headstones, Tobias Forge of Ghost, Mark Tremonti, Rival Sons, Ian Thornley, Palaye Royale, Sum 41, Buckcherry among others. Headstones frontman Hugh Dillon says, “Darryl has demonstrated a level of dedication to musicians that is above and beyond what is typically seen from someone in his position. We agreed to do an interview with him in front of a live audience on the release day of our new record PEOPLESKILLS for this reason”.
