Q Podcasts: Paul Anka and Ray Davies on Songwriting

Here in Canada, we have our public radio broadcaster, the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), and the CBC has a weekday radio program, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, called Q.

Visit the Q website for its podcasts and you won't be disappointed. The program from Friday, March 21, has Jian interviewing Ray Davies discussing his epic rock career as one of the best singer-songwriters of our time.

Paul Anka, who was recently feted by the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame earlier this month, is featured from the program aired Monday, March 24, 2008 (which I happened to hear in its entirety yesterday). From the show site: "The Ottawa-boy Paul Anka cut his first single when he was just 14 years old. He went on to became a legendary singer and songwriter in a remarkable career that has spanned 50 years."

These podcasts are well worth a listen for those interested in how these legends approached songwriting, or if your interest is in these legends as artists... In either case, you won't be disappointed...
