homeOn today’s show, we decided to take a step back and play songs from movies we watched (read: forced to watch) when we were kids. Tune in for songs from 1942 Love Story, Bombay, Baazigar, Lagaan, Rangeela, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, and more! from 8am to 10am to stream it. Or download the mp3 later!

Today’s show also features an interview with Bageshree Vaze is a versatile and multi-talented Indo-Canadian artist. As a dancer and choreographer, she strives to create and present work that reflects her cultural influences. She was initially trained in the style of Bharatha Natyam in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and also trained in Hindustani (North Indian) classical vocal music with her father, Dr. Damodar Vaze. After completing her Arangetram (graduation) in Bharatha Natyam, Bageshree received a fellowship from the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute to further her studies in India with the late Guru T.K. Mahalingam Pillai. After moving to Ontario in 1996, Bageshree began to create dance works which combined her knowledge of South Indian dance and North Indian music, and she explored collaborations between Indian dance and Western forms, such as ballet, modern and West African dance.
