NCRA Awards “Documentary” Submission, March 2017 Nick Russell, Folkway Music Hero (Music Teacher Feature)

About The Producer
Logue has assumed many volunteer and contract roles at CFRU including a polylingual/syndication and mobile studio assistant (per New Horizons Radio segments submitted in prior years). She also has experience as programming committee member, spoken word coordinator, workshop presenter, fill-in show host, merch table minder, station tours/event host, groundwire host, and more.

But Logue is best known as the host and producer of a longtime, sometimes syndicated, occasionally award winning, totally volunteer driven, all age, all access, horse talk radio show, now in its 10th season at CFRU. Logue has mentored many, many hoofbeats radio contributors over this time, allowing the show to evolve to incorporate the interests and preferences of all participants/volunteers,. This is particularly evident in terms of the music programming - at one time it was 100% spoken word for 2 hours, at one time with a 1/2 hour local focus for the playlist… and at other times with a jazz focus etc. Recent efforts and developments include a “Riding With The Stars” Segment featuring musicians disclosing horse experiences. As well as her own original fiction, and other story segments from novice to expert contributors. p.s. Many of these columns and feature segments are easily available on the Community Radio Exchange, as is her new project, Conversations Worth Having.

Length 8:36; CFRU Broadcast Jan 3, 2016

Written Description of the Work:

This entry is an excerpt of “A Music Teacher Feature,” produced by Kim Logue as part of a series of shows for CFRU for the holiday season. With an aim to promote the idea of music lessons as a gift? Or to encourage listeners to set resolutions for themselves? Certainly to discuss the benefits of playing and studying music! Logue ultimately explores why music matters, in this rebroadcast-able group of 8 programs, started Dec 2015. Other guests so far have included: Rob Gellner, Brent Rowan, Joni Nehrita, Shannon Kingsbury and Eleanor Hart.

This particular full hour episode stars Nicholas Russell, as live-to-air (accidental) cohost ~ playing tunes off his laptop to help out, and also playing acoustic guitar! Logue, a Holiday Helper at CFRU at the time, said “I’d told my guest we'd be pre-taping, but the equipment malfunctions were beyond me, so we ended up live-to-air instead. Happy New Year!” Addng “I love how the live music starts abruptly again because I had to take a call on the on-air line. The beautiful sounds 11:57 - 12:21 includes more doors slamming along the hallway as I let people in and out of the building and various studios.” (as posted in her column for blogguelph )
