Coming up next weekend on Sunday April 17th, you’ll have to join me (Sarah Burke) for the Jack Richardson London Music Awards and it’s free! It’s a night dedicated to honouring local talent in tribute to the late Jack Richardson, famous for producing bands like The Guess Who, Bob Seger, and Alice Cooper just to name a few. His son, Garth Richardson, will be in attendance as well with his own impressive resume. Garth has produced music for Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Trapt and many more which we will explore in next weekend’s Top 10 “Produced by a Richardson.”
This weekend, we’re looking at ten bands with a LONDON story to share, whether it be a band member’s childhood or post-secondary education at a school here in LONDON, or a band’s connection behind the scenes. Producer Dan Brodbeck has a connection to at least half of this list, and joins me for the hour this weekend to tell stories from behind the board working with The Salads, The Gandarvas, The Standstills, Ivory Hours, and Delores O’Riordan. Listen live Saturday & Sunday April 9th / 10th 6-7pm http://player.fm96.com

#2 Cranberries - Zombie
Juno-Award Winning Engineer Dan Brodbeck won his Juno through Delores O’Riordan, the lead-singer of The Cranberries. Dan did some work helping her and her husband when they were up near their Peterborough home (her husband was a tour manager for Duran Duran), and they ended up working together for 13 years! The award-winning album is titled, ‘No Baggage’ and Dan even played some guitar parts on the record, see below.
