Here's what we played: 

Frazey Ford - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Frazey Ford, best known as the co-founder of Canadian folk trio The Be Good Tanyas, grew up with soul music in her blood. In fact, before her days harmonizing with The Be Good Tanyas, she was in a soul band. Her first solo outing, Obadiah, started to reveal Frazey's romance with soul music, in particular, the Memphis sound. This was apparent to documentary filmmaker Robert Gordon who by chance heard a song from Obadiah on the radio. Following an inspired thought, he tracked down Frazey to suggest that she come to Memphis to record with Al Green’s legendary session band, The Hi Rhythm Section, at Royal Studios.

Question of the Day: Oh, Dear!

by Corny O'Connell

Oh, dear! It's the season of reindeer - Comet, Cupid, Rudolph and all the others. But before we dust off the Christmas music, let's play some other songs that are dear to us - songs with "dear" in the lyrics. Give us a song with that term of endearment in the comments below. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Dear John" - Aimee Mann

"Dear Mr. Fantasy" - Traffic

"Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.)" - Monsters of Folk

Temples - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

It's not often that the first recording of a young band perfectly conveys that group's promise and mission. Temples, then a duo, managed to do that very thing with their debut single, 2012's "Shelter Song." That delectable slice of woozy psychedelic pop (which got them signed to Heavenly Recordings) led to the eventual addition of two other bandmates and three strong 2013 singles: "Colours To Life," "Mesmerise" and "Keep In The Dark." Last winter, Temples released their handsome, self-produced debut album, Sun Structures. It's been a heady gallop for the band, spurred on by prestigious support slots, sold-out headlining gigs and major festival outings.
