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.

EP 191 | Chief Clarence Louie ‘Rez Rules’


Here’s what you might know about Chief Clarence…

CLARENCE LOUIE has been chief of the Osoyoos Indian Band, in the south Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, for almost 40 years. In 2013, Maclean’s named him one of the “Top 50 Canadians to Watch.” In 2003, Louie was chosen by the U.S. Department of State as one of six First Nations leaders to review economic development in American Indian communities… He is a member of the Order of British Columbia, the Order of Canada, and in 2019, he was the 1st  First Nations person ever inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame.

And some info you may not know.

When you talk to  Chief Clarence, ask your question, and then Get Out of The Way.

He’s talking about Respect. Truth. Reconciliation. Healing. Wellness. Land. Justice. Economic Freedom.

He believes in Native names for Sports Teams. He believes in renaming mountains, parks, rivers and cities/towns after the original nations who called it home for 10,000 years.

“tribes have been hanging around the Funding Trough for far too long.  I was taught by the old-timers that there is no such thing as a free lunch – Indians gotta stop looking for that free lunch. I’ve learned we have to move from spending Grant money to making our own money.”

The Osoyoos Indian Band leases include Arterra (Jackson Triggs), Spirit Ridge Resort, Sonora Dunes Golf course, District Wine Village, a provincial prison, 1,100 acres of prime vineyards, etc.

OIB businesses include a 300-acre vineyard, Nk’mip Cellars, a culture center, campground RV park, daycare, gas stations, cannabis stores, etc.

“A raw and honest perspective on First Nations leadership.”

—Manley A. Begay, Jr., former co-director, The Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development.

“A common-sense blueprint for what the future of First Nations should look like as told through the fascinating life and legacy of a remarkable leader”  Google Books

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.

The Zoom recording can be seen on the Mulligan Stew YouTube Channel as well. Click the tab at the top of the page

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.

EP 189 | Rick Mercer ‘Talking To Canadians’


Canada is famous for its hockey and hockey stars.

Singers and Songwriters?  Yup!

Sometimes lost in the debate is one of our greatest resources,   “Funny”.

We do funny as well as anyone.

Dan Aykroyd. Martin Short. Andrea Martin,  John Candy. The people of Schitt’s Creek, Second City,  Kids in the Hall, Norm MacDonald, Samantha Bee, Jim Carrey, Lorne Michaels to name just a few. That’s not even counting the writers, directors, and producers who do funny,  under the radar.

They all went South to work and became stars in the US.  Go for “The Show”

Rick Mercer, our guest this week has created an astounding career and profile.  Rick achieved fame making Canadians laugh. At themselves! Rick stayed in Canada and mined comedy gold. He has released his very personal memoir, Rick Mercer.  Talking to Canadians.

It’s funny, clever, and revealing from cover to cover.

He first came to fame with Show Me the Button I’ll Push It, or Charles Lynch Must Die, a one-man show that toured across Canada. He co-created and was a resident performer on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and was the host of The Rick Mercer Report, CBC’s highest-rated comedy show, for fifteen seasons. Rick is co-chair of the Spread the Net campaign, dedicated to preventing the spread of Malaria in Africa, and has also campaigned for the Canadian AIDS Society’s The Walk for Life project. His many honours include 21 Geminis and the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award. He is from St. John’s and currently resides in Toronto.

He shaved and cleaned up for this interview.


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.

EP 188 | Joey Landreth ‘All That You Dream’


The very first time I heard The Bros Landreth my heart jumped “those boys were raised on Little Feat (One of the very best bands to ever step onto a stage. Anywhere)

They were led by the late Lowell George. Lead singer, primary writer, singular guitarist.

When I got to interview Joey and brother David, they spun a story of growing up in Winnipeg. Their father was a well-known working musician and the house was filled with Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Poco records but the most popular were the early 70’s albums by Little Feat. (Little Feat. Sailin’ Shoes. Dixie Chicken. Feats don’t fail me now)

It was a true musical education.

This all leads us to this Podcast featuring Joey Landreth and his new solo album All that you dream.

It’s a tribute to Lowell George and Little Feat. A “thank you” if you will.

Turns out, we’re the ones who should be saying thank you. It’s a beautiful table full of the Little Feat Dixie Chicken. One generation saluting another.

The Bros are headed back to Europe for tour dates (listed here)

Remarkably they are even bigger stars in Europe than here but that imbalance will surely change this year when this killer solo album is joined by the next Bros Landreth album, in the Spring!

Note:  check out Joey in episode #52

EP 187 | Benjamin Cleary Writer, Director ‘Swan Song’



In the recently released film Swan Song,  Oscar winner  Mahershala Ali plays Cameron, an illustrator involved in a happy marriage,   father of one with another on the way.  He’s also terminally ill. This being the future, a medical procedure exists which allows Cameron to be cloned and have his memories and DNA  implanted in the clone. The clone then returns to Cameron’s wife Naomie Harris and family, so that they don’t have to deal with the grief of losing him.

In his first leading role, Mahershala Ali takes on a demanding role. Playing both  Cameron and his clone. Taking the stereotypical double role, he shaped it with such an amazing level of sensitivity and genuine craft, that he matched his work in his Oscar-winning Moonlight and The Green Book roles. He’ll very likely be in the middle of the Critics Choice and Oscar races yet again.

Swan Song also stars Glenn Close, Adam Beach, Awkwafina and is written for the screen and directed by our guest this week  Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary
