They all talk about their relationship to wine but also food.     Colin is a huge wine fan..knows his stuff. Sharon has just released a new LP “Giver the people what they want” but the music had to wait until Sharon battled Cancer. We talk about how she changed her diet during ther battle. Matt Anderson met me at Memphis Blues on Commercial in Vancouver. The room smelled of smoky ribs etc.. To my surprise Matt is not so much a wine guy but a Scotch fan. I think I heard him say he had 200 bottles??

 And we finish with  hockey fan Daenna van Mulligen recommending wines for the NFL Super Bowl weekend.
