Episode 2: Glory Days

This is the second episode of the LOVE LOCAL MUSIC podcast, part of the LOVE LOCAL MUSIC campaign of the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition. Co-hosts Nik Ives-Allison (OMIC General Manager) and Joel Elliott (Jumpin’ Joel Flash and the Magic Machine) are here to help you find your favourite Ottawa (area) band, talking you through the latest news and the hottest tracks to come out of our music scenes.

In this episode we catch up on all the happenings around February’s MEGAPHONO conference and showcase, the progress of the Ottawa Music Strategy (which is going to City Council for approval April 11th!) as well as non-traditional venues in the lead-up to cannabis legalisation and JUNO success for Ottawa artists!

In this month’s O-Town Time Travel segment Joel gives us some insight into the long and storied career of the Five Man Electrical Band while Nik introduces this month’s Capital Jazz playlist.
