Part 2 of the spirited conversation with a true legend is here! The hang that Curtis and I had couldn’t be contained in one episode. I can’t WAIT to get to part 2 of the live chat w/Curtis. Join us to be a part of it!
Curtis got in late, so you can skip ahead if you don’t need my long introduction, but man…. once he got in, we had a HOOT. This legend has more stories of iconic experiences than pretty much anyone you’ll meet. And this is just Part 1! Stay tuned for Part 2…
A native of Toronto Canada, Juno Award winner Suzie McNeil was born into a musical family. She was practically raised singing with her mother and sister, learning to collaborate from a very early age.
Suzie is a musical Jack-of-all-trades. These have ranged from live shows beside some of North America’s top artists, to becoming a multi-instrumentalist in her own Nashville based country / rock band, to consummate professionalism in the studio, to Broadway level musical theatre, to commercial jingles, to performing in front of crowds of up to 200,000 people.
Originally from Niagara Falls, NY. — Vocalist, multi-ethnic drummer / percussionist and founder of Brothers of the Baladi (1976), Arabesque (1994 – traditional Middle Eastern music band) and Radio Remedy (2018). Based in Portland, Oregon, Brothers of the Baladi performed both traditional and original Middle Eastern World Music featuring vocals in seven languages [Arabic, Turkish, Armenian, Farsi, Spanish, French & English] with instruments & songs from around the world.
The inimitable radio personality Porkchop (Noah) and I have some interesting parallels, and together, I think we can solve the developing crises in America. Beyond that, exchanging stories of ridiculous experiences and an appreciation of abstract expressionists (of which Noah is one) are all fair game.
New music, new stories and new outlook by the remarkable band you fell in love with in the 80s. Cutting Crew’s Nick Van Eede, Gareth Moulton and Josh Thompson return to All Access Live to share some light with you.

Men Without Hats formed in 1977 amid the Montreal punk scene. They became pioneers of electro-pop in Canada after adopting a New Wave sound that made extensive use of keyboard and drum synthesizers. Their sound is characterized by infectiously simple melodies, socially and politically idealistic lyrics, and the distinctive baritone voice of lead singer, principle songwriter and chief member Ivan Doroschuk. Ivan’s in the studio recording new material, and will take some time to join us for an update on Men Without Hats!
