Kevin Hearn

Sunday night is the night of the vampire, to honour our loss of Roky Erickson.

We endeavour to provide stacks of records to connect you to that thing, that magical thing that is music and your relationship with music.

We welcome one of the greatest artists in Canadian history, Kevin Hearn. The multi-instrumentalist of Barenaked Ladies visits to bring songs from his latest project: The Superhero Suite, which features his friends Ron Sexsmith, Michael Ray of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Carole Pope, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Alan Doyle, The Persuasions and more. He’ll unpack his work on the new documentary, There Are No Fakes, exploring artistic integrity and identity politics around an incredibly massive art fraud scam. In the midst of it all, he opens up about his creative collaborations with The Rheostatics, Gord Downie, Lou Reed and his own health survival stories.

Tell your friends that the Spirit Of Radio lives on.
