In the first hour of the program today it is all music from the early sixties, the likes of the Beatles, Elvis, Booker T etc.
In the second hour I have as a guest Steven Zoravor Sarkissian who is an instructor in the ways of Kenjutsu the art of Katana. Steven comes wearing the traditional gear and with a number of bokken which is a Japanese wooden sword used for training. It is usually the size and shape of a katana, but is sometimes shaped like other swords, such as the wakizashi and tantō. Some ornamental bokken are decorated with mother-of-pearl work and elaborate carvings.
And lastly today Yoly joins us with Sara Gremont from Solomon’s Deli. Perhaps Yoly is not too well today as we are talking about comfort food for example the Poutine, chips with curd cheese and gravy, and delicious sandwiches with hand made sliced meat flown in from Canada… Will we be able to turn Yoly in to a carnivore?
