Episode 22 – Broadcast Date January 10, 2017
With Bonus Guest JANA STACKHOUSE
For today’s show we take to the phones for 2 great calls! First – a quick catch up call with award winning, New Brunswick born filmmaker Jana Stackhouse. I got word that her latest short AWAY HOME has been selected for a very cool film festival hosted by TIFF – Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival. Jana’s been on the go with her work and busy these days so she promised to come back for the full hour another time – just enough time today to get the scoop on her movie and this weekend’s big festival.
Then another fun phone call with my dear friend and former co-host Kurt Stoodley. The award winning broadcaster is certainly a familiar face on Canada’s East Coast – a native of Newfoundland where he worked in radio and TV, but most remembered for the the 5 years during which Atlantic Canada woke up every morning with the man. That’s when he served as co-host on ATV’s BREAKFAST TELEVISION. We’ll get the scoop on his 3 plus decade long career and so much more – from his love of live TV to his love of hockey – his advice to anyone hoping to follow in his footsteps to his tips for taking in the nation’s capital – which is exactly where we reached him when we called. Please enjoy my conversation with the one and only Kurt Stoodley!
If you’re in the Toronto area make plans to see AWAY HOME Saturday, January 13th at 2:30pm when it screens as part of TIFF’s Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival! Jana will be there to introduce her film and answer questions as well. For tickets and additional information click here.

As we mentioned in the episode – before we co-hosted Breakfast At the New RO and A-Channel Morning, (now CTV Morning Live Ottawa) Kurt woke up Atlantic Canada alongside Liz Rigney and Scott Boyd on Breakfast Television in Halifax . And for the record – I actually performed as a musical guest on that very show – way, way, way back in the day! Watch that here video.
