25 for 25: episode 2004

Gloria McCluskey reflects on her storied political career and Condon MacLeod talks about the golden days of Halifax's all-ages music scene.


It's 2004 and The Pavilion is finally reopening. Historic music promoter Condon MacLeod is with us in studio talking about the birth, death, rebirth (and death again?) of Halifax's all-ages music scene.

Then, Dartmouth icon Gloria McCluskey tells us what made her come back to municipal politics 14 years ago and offers her unfiltered assessment of HRM's current crop councillors.

All this plus White Juan covers the city in snow, Tara gets a phone call from Belinda Stronach's office, Jacob meets G-Unit at TGI Fridays, we try to deduce the identity of the real Scott Pilgrim and Ikea is definitely, 100-percent coming back to Halifax.
