This week we reflected on the year that was 2020, and what a memorable year we had! We changed our format from a live radio broadcast / podcast to a Zoom meet pre-recorded podcast, but that also opened up our guests to join us from anywhere in the world, not just Toronto.
We talked about:
- This year’s songwriting challenge
- Our favorite albums from the year:
- Why did Bob Dylan sell off his entire catalogue?
- Our favourite episodes of Song Talk Radio from this year:
- Writing, recording, and releasing a song in 48 hours with The Sun Harmonic
- Creating a Concept Album with Gilbert Neal
- The Hosts Take on Their First Songwriting Challenge
- Songs for Self-Isolation with Frank Horvat
- Making complicated sound simple with Alex Cuba
- The Best Songs Have Only 3 chords
- Songwriting tips: Don’ts to not do as much and Do’s to do more often
- Keeping It Real with Blair Packham
- Neel’s helpful video on how to align a recording to the grid in Cakewalk
- Our musical plans for the holidays (while in lockdown)
