Look What I Found!
24 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I call this show "Look what I found!" In the occasional process of cleaning off shelves, and distributing papers on a table, here are some of the items I've uncovered. Kind of like modern archaeology. Come-from-away fiddles, bluegrass harmonicas, French versions of Dylan, resurrections of old classics, impossible guitar licks, even a bit of Irish-Quebecois.
How a Farmer's Market Nurtures Community
23 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

On this episode, we explore the close relationship between food and community, and how they often rely upon the contributions of the other. We use the example of the St. John's Farmer's Market as an illustration of how this relationship works its magic. I talk to Chair of the Co-op Board that operates the market, Joshua Smee, Deputy Mayor of...
Easter and Beyond
17 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week the show is called "Easter and Beyond." But really, it should be called "the Rabbit and Chocolate Show." Indeed, I spend most of the time playing songs and tunes about these celebrated symbols of this time of year. But no songs about chocolate rabbits, alas. Music from Cape Breton, Scotland, Newfoundland & Labrador, Australia, Appalachia, Louisiana, and even...
New Stories in Food Entrepreneurship with Emily Bland
16 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today the show features a young entrepreneur and social activist, and a major supporter of building food production one kitchen or school or seniors' home at a time. Emily Bland is the CEO of SucSeed, an award-winning startup project that is building and distributing small hydroponic units throughout Atlantic Canada and beyond. She talks about her motivation to grow food...
Spring Cleaning on my CD Shelves
10 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today on Routes & Branches & Beyond I do some spring cleaning on my CD shelves. In the spirit of our culture's annual cleansing ritual, I look through some of my piles of CDs and play a few before they get filed. Some Central Ontario twangers, old-timey appalachian, Malian blues, Spanish bagpipes, classic Canadian 60s pop, and Toronto celtic rock.
Agritourism in the Dairy industry in Iceland
09 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we visit two agri-tourism operations in Iceland. Both of them are dairies that also have rooms for farm vacation stays, as well as restaurants. And the beauty is that you can eat your lunch, or lick your ice cream cone, while you watch the cattle being milked! We feature Vogafjós and Efstidalur, speaking with Olof Hallgrimsdottir and Solvi...
How Spite Can Feed Us All
02 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we chat with James Grace, gardener extraordinaire, chef of note, teacher, and deep thinker on all things related to rural Newfoundland and Labrador. I ask him about where he thinks we are heading as a province, and he explains why "spite" is such a fine source of inspiration for growing food. And all from...
New Releases for a New Season
02 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, it is "new releases for a new season." I play a batch of some recent releases from household names like Farsan, Cuig, Leyla McCalla, Le Vent du Nord and Mandolin Orange. Oh, and a few obscure musicians like Mark Knopfler and Johnny Clegg, just to give them a chance to enjoy the spotlight for a bit. And a...
Music from the Happiest Country on Eart
27 Mar, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke |

For today's show, we feature "Music from the Happiest Country on Earth." Yes, indeed, Finland has recently been announced as the happiest place to live once again, so let's find out if it is the music that makes them so joyous. Besides, I just got back from there, so I'm in the mood to explore more about Finnish culture. Polskas,...
Growing food in Labrador, past and present
26 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For this show, we head back to Labrador to pay a visit to Des Sellars, owner and operator of Nature's Best Farm. We chat about the great promise of agriculture in the sandy loam and rock-free soil of Central Labrador, as well as the challenges of farming a long way from the infrastructure that is needed. I also drop in...
The Emerald Isle, Part 2
20 Mar, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I devote one more show to focus on the music of Ireland, just in case you were distracted, or otherwise occupied, and missed the flurry of jigs and reels that overflowed in our mainstream culture over the past week or so. But I play more than just the fiddles and accordions. There's also a bit of Irish reggae, some Irish...
At the Wharf with Kimberly Orren
20 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time out, we look to the sea for food. I visit with Kimberly Orren of Fishing for Success (and other organizations). We meet up on a wharf in Petty Harbour and chat about giving youth an opportunity to "catch" the passion for fishing, about addressing the gender imbalances in the fishery, about opening up opportunities for self-provisioning with marine...
The Emerald Isle Part 1
16 Mar, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This is the first of two shows that celebrate the Emerald Isle, around the time of its annual celebration (which is marked worldwide by a rather dubious symbol - the selling of green beer). Some experimental gaelic poems set to music, some crossover celtic jazz, some heart-wrenching songs about a home never to be seen again and lots of diddley-diddley...
At the Greenhouse with Knutur
16 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For this show, we head to Iceland to visit a magical place, but it is almost the very opposite of the representations of magical places on the "Game of Thrones." This is a place of calm, of refuge, of the pungent smell of tomatoes. It is called Friðheimar, and is a greenhouse, restaurant and horse stables. I talk to owner...
Stayin' Home (Canadian tracks)
07 Mar, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time out, we stay in (if that makes any sense). The show is called "Stayin' Home," and I play a pile of Canadian releases from days gone by, as well as one that hasn't even been officially released yet. There's also a set of tracks from the Cape Breton Celtic Colours festival and a Lennie Gallant song that just...
At the Gardens with Todd Boland
07 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on Fit to Eat I chat with Todd Boland, author, radio personality and Research Horticulturist at the MUN Botanical Garden -- and a self-confessed gardening aficionado (or "fanatic," depending on your perspective). We talk about the challenges of growing plants in NL, some of the ways to work WITH nature to succeed, and changes that are taking place in...
Marches for March Month
28 Feb, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time out, we celebrate the only month that is also a popular time signature in music - March! I play a variety of marches, from nordic and morris and brass-influenced marches to Mancini-esque Scottish tracks and song about the march of prohibition. Just the average show...
Sheep Farming in Iceland
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat, we head to an area of the world that has many similarities to our own, but enough differences to make it intriguing - Iceland. I visit with a sheep farmer (and current Vice-Speaker of the Northeast Constituency of the Icelandic Parliament), þórarinn Ingi Pétursson. We talk about the challenges of marketing sheep in a...
A chat with the only commercial cheesemaker in NL
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

"Blessed are the Cheese-makers." This week on Fit to Eat, we meet up with the only commercial cheese-maker in NL. Yes. That's right. We're a province of about 530,000, and have only one commercial cheese-maker. But don't let that mislead you about the amount of cheese we actually eat! We just send the excess milk to other provinces and they...
Music for a stormy day... or week... or month
18 Feb, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, the show is called "Music for a stormy day... or week... or month." Some of you in this hemisphere have been coping with some weather lately, and occasionally you get a storm coming through. So, I'm playing a selection of tunes and songs that have "storm" in the title. That may sound like a weak justification for a...
