June 15: Rich Elwood
Happy Father's Day, dads. I'm getting a great gift tonight, and forwarding it to all of you: Rich Elwood is coming on the show after years and years of my pleading. Persistence pays off. I first saw Elwood back in the early '80s at his Gastown club Punchlines. Since getting out of the club business, Rich has been an in-demand corporate comic and producer. I also remember seeing him open for Ray Charles at the Royal Theatre in Victoria. We'll find out if that's a false memory and all about his other exploits plus hear tales from the formative years of comedy in Vancouver tonight at 11.
And to top it all off, Elwood is our very first guest in our new studio! Hope we don't screw it up.
Tune in at 11 pm PST to CFRO, 100.5 FM, in Vancouver. If radios aren't your thing, and computers are, you can always livestream us at coopradio.org or wait for the podcast to drop.
