The featured album was LE PELEGRIN by TRI YANN  (Marzelle) www.tri-yann.com   This offers a somewhat different slant on the theme of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella in Galicia.  Tri Yann is a folk rock band, formed in the early '70s in eastern Brittany, and this 2001 album features lyrics sung in Scots Gaelic, Occitan and Breton, as well as French.  It is the contemporary story of Ian Angus, who leaves his home on the Hebridean island of Lewis and travels through Scotland, Ireland, "le Pays des Saxons", specific regions of France and northern Spain.  This particular pilgrimage in honour of Saint Jacques includes very secular references to BMWs, Kawasaki 500s, shooting up and buying junk advertised on TV.  Intriguing album.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:

I RIM BO RO;  JE M'EN VAS;  LE CHASSEUR DE TEMPS;  KEENAN'S PUB; FRANSOZIG;  BUVONS VIN DE CLISSON;  A MATINE A LA TELE;  L'ARRIVEE A COMPOSTELLE

This program included an extended interview with Australian singer songwriter, PAT DRUMMOND, who recently performed in town.  We thought we would talk for a half hour or so, but things got out of hand and this entire program is all Pat and some of his music.  His latest recording is a fascinating double CD project, THE CHESS SET, presenting alternate moods of rage and serenity on albums titled THE AGE OF DISSENT and THE DESCENT OF AGE  (Shoestring).  Features include an extensive browser based interactive section, and encouragement is given to continue the relationship by logging on to www.patdrummond.net   Pat Drummond presents contemporary Australian songwriting at its best, with passion and intensity.  The new release is highly recommended.  (All tracks played are * Australian content.)
