Episode 34 – Emily Jane White
SnapSessions! presents Episode 34, featuring an interview with our artist of the show, folk singer/songwriter Emily Jane White, as well as a salute to the storied 1980s Canadian comedy troupe SCTV–”The Power of Silly, a Tribute to SCTV”.
Emily Jane White talks about growing up on the Mendocino Coast in the 1980s and 90s, the daughter of a school teacher and a sailor in the merchant marine, her further education at UC Santa Cruz and her beginnings in the music scene, her move to San Francisco and her early work as a singer/songwriter, her developing career in both the US and Europe, and her stories of touring across Europe both pre-pandemic and in the early days of Covid.
In addition, SnapSessions Episode 34 begins with a salute to SCTV, Canada’s hilarious comedy troupe from the 1980s, which had a multi year run with a slew of great talents like John Candy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Rick Moranis, Martin Short, Joe Flaherty, Dave Thomas, and Andrea Martin. With this talented cast, SCTV skewered celebrities, parodied TV shows, and mocked “the powers that were” across North America over a decade. Our tribute features highlights from The Shmenges “Last Polka”, from “The Great White North”, and from the famed “takeover” of SCTV by Soviet television.
Episode 34 is 74 minutes long and includes an intro, the article ”The Power of Silly, a Tribute to SCTV” (starts at 1:15), and our interview with folk singer/songwriter Emily Jane White (starts at 22:20).
SnapSessions! includes original music by Marshall Brown, production by Marshall Brown and Ken Krauss, voiceovers by Ken Krauss and Doug Nunn, and articles and interviews by Doug Nunn. Our SnapSessions! artist and logo maker is caricaturist, Daniel Stieglitz.
