CKUA Interview with Holger Petersen

It was pretty cool for me to finally get a chance to chat with Holger. I’ve listened to him for a long time so to be on the other end of the program was a little surreal. We had a great chat. We spoke at great length about the recording of Redemption as well as the life and times of the great Jim Dickinson and his amazing family. Interview is broken into two parts. I hope you enjoy listening.

On Tour: Tattoo Night.

So last Friday at Blues On Whyte we met a lady named Dixie. Dixie is a friend of my best friend Jim. Dixie owns a Tattoo Shop with a dude named Kris Schule. The Shop is called Zen Custom Tattooing. After some chatting about it, I told Dixie we’d stop in to see what’s what on Monday.

Well Today is Monday. We stopped by the shop this afternoon but the young apprentice we spoke with said they were booked until Wednesday. Of course we had to leave town on Wednesday so that wouldn’t work. After a few moments, Kris, the aforementioned owner came by to say hi. After some chit chat Kris suggested we come back at 10pm and he would stay late and tattoo us.

After a brief foray to the Mall and Hudsons, we hit the internet to gather tattoo ideas. Around 9pm we gathered ourselves to head on over to the shop. All went well. Shawn and I got in for some work, unfortunately for our pal Jim we used up all the time so Jim had to reschedule (as he is from Edmontown and could come back later). Sorry Jim!!!! We’d like to say a big thanks to Kris Schule for working late and squeezing us in. This is a great shop folks. If you are in Edmonton hit ’em up…..

Hi all

We re in Kamloops now. Left the Kelowna compound for the last time on this tour. What a great place. Just wanted to make a quick post to say thanks to Art and Dee Gans for their over the top hospitality. They, and a few others like them, make this and all our tours possible. Thank you for your kindness.
