On Out of the Fog, this October

What a tyyyyme I’ve had over the last month! If you’ve been tuning in to Out of the Fog, you’ve seen it all! The music. The movie makers. The St. John’s movers and shakers. And if you haven’t, lemmie tell you about it.

The lineup

This month saw big names in the St. John’s film scene, like Jenn Brown from the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival and Roger Maunder from Up Sky Down Films, founder of the Nickel Film Festival. These two and their organizations are doing wicked work in the province, showcasing our people’s knack for storytelling and the resiliency and profitability of this industry.

Keepin’ with this trend of bringing biz and arts together, we had our A1C neighbour Bryhanna Greenough from Business & Arts NLDave Lane, our favourite civic son (hello!) and lead hand in a special project with Common Ground; Andrew Boyd of both Waterfront Fire fame and now, for his media mag, Rock Eden; and VOCM’s own Paddy Daly, who talked about his own history with Out of the Fog!

In the entrepreneur world, we saw Todd Perrin from Mallard Cottage and Josh Taylor from the Newfoundland Trading Company. The boys killed it!

This month’s all-star crew also included Tony and Rebekah from MusicNL, and with all the Awards Show goodness from October, we had lots to discuss!

Music and friends

And speaking of music … we had Chris KirbyJanet Cull and Mike HanrahanDana Parsons and Wade Tarling, and Rough Hands all rock the Masonic this month. Talk about “instrumental connections.” A big shout out to these deadly musical guests.


Don’t forget to tune in every Thursday on Channel 9 for new episodes! BTW: We’re always down to have people swing by the Masonic Theatre to sit in on a taping of the show. If you wanna check it out, drop me a line:


Looking forward,
