Original Air Date: December 9, 2011

We've got 3 interviews for you in this one, some music debuts, and a lot of great stuff in our From The MailBox artist features as well!

First up, Marcus has a chat with Dave Journeaux, lead vocalist for Ottawa progressive metal-heads Today I Caught The Plague to discuss what it takes to keep the passion afire as a band, importance of having a vision, expanding to international markets, as well as not writing towards a certain musical genre. They're also joining up with the Bearded and Bald Tour with the legendary Devin Townsend project for dates in Ontario and Montreal.
