That’s Show Buzz

That’s Show Buzz
by Sean McQuaid

Reviews

Fond as I am of poking fun at my advancing years, I don’t quite date back to the very beginning of The Buzz. Like Captain America in the old Avengers comics, I’m an odd historical footnote—the longtime fixture who was around nearly from the start, but not quite.

When Peter Richards and Derek Martin first joined forces to produce a newspaper that chronicled the PEI arts

Have Car, Will Write

Talking Bands
Reviews

When I was 18 years old, a friend who worked at UPEI’s student newspaper helped me and another friend sneak into The Wave in order to see our number one music crush Joel Plaskett perform. This resourceful friend also helped us get backstage after the concert in order to interview Plaskett. While my friend had a legitimate reason to spend over an hour chatting

Summerside Scene

As the Buzz reporter for Prince County, I cover happenings in my hometown of Summerside and the western region. A few years ago during a time when I was making some changes in my professional life, writing for The Buzz seemed like a good way to exercise my creative side.

I knew ‘Buzz man’ Peter Richards through advertising I’d booked for work projects. One day Peter

Eastenders
Creative Spark

I started writing for The Buzz back around the turn of the century, when I inherited the “Eastenders” column from my sister-in-law, Nancy Malcolm Sharratt. My next Buzz beat was “The Creative Spark.” Each month I interviewed a visual artist about what inspired them and drove them, what was behind their particular mode of expression.

Stay with the Program

by Derek Martin

City Cinema

Congratulations to The Buzz on 20 years of terrific coverage of Arts & Culture on P.E.I.! I’m usually too busy planning future programmes to spend much time looking back, but anniversaries inevitably inspire a trip to the memory bank.

I’ve written here before about being a fan of Peter’s Sunday Cinema, volunteering at his offshoot Off The Wall Video, and our startup

Country Beat

by “Rattler” (Paul Meyers)

Republished from June 1994

The Bud Country Talent Search has come and gone for another year and, alas, we have the same result (a last place finish). I attended some of the functions—the talent was good and we had a winner. And that of course is what talent contests are all about—winners, and where they will go and what they will do after winning. I spoke with some of
