Radio Wunderbar #021 – broadcast 12 June 2011 on Indie Love Radio, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Achtung! For episode 21 of Radio Wunderbar, I was joined by special guests Bella Clava, a fine young band from Toronto. The playlist for this show features music from artists at North By North East music festival (NXNE) 2011, together with some fantastic live-to-air performances by Bella Clava.

Bella Clava played seven songs during the show, including brand new material from their forthcoming LP Holy Crow, expected for release this September. Bella Clava were excellent. Thanks as always, to sound engineer Jeremy Konings for making sure everything sound golden over the airwaves. This was one of my favourite episodes of Radio Wunderbar yet. Bella Clava, it was a huge honour to have you as guests and thanks for playing “Didn’t Come Here To Love You” at my spontaneous request, that was great!

Some time markers are listed below for anyone in a hurry and wanting to fast-forward to the Bella Clava songs. Feedback welcome. Be sure to check out Bella Clava. Enjoy the podcast!
