/ Miss Chatelaine / Music / This Way North – Show #132 (part 2), 1 December 2019


Leisha Jungalwalla and Cat Leahy, aka This Way North, have had a big year. Cat calls in to the show to chat to Katie about the duo’s recent Canadian tour in their trusty van, Vangelina Jolie; the new Chris Franklin ‘micro-documentary’ about their lives as travelling musicians; and their current tour with the hilarious Tuck Shop Ladies. You’ll also hear a new radio edit of Adam Lambert’s beautiful ‘Closer to You’; brand-new music by Fanny Lumsden, Green Pools and Liz Frencham; one of Katie’s favourite tracks of the year, by US artist Chadwick Stokes; a classic by the multi-award-winning Teskey Brothers; and the k.d. lang track of the week. Here is the playlist:

  • Joan of Arc – Chadwick Stokes
  • Release Me – Lyle Lovett with k.d. lang
  • Closer to You (radio edit) – Adam Lambert
  • Make It Work – This Way North
  • Euphemism – Tuck Shop Ladies
  • These Days – Fanny Lumsden
  • Mystery Charmer – Green Pools
  • The Cellar Door – Liz Frencham
  • Pain and Misery – The Teskey Brothers
