S2, E8: Miss America by Mary Margaret O’Hara

March 26, 2017

In the sphere of "one-and-done" artists, few approach the mastery and mystique of Toronto's Mary Margaret O'Hara. Her sole studio full-length, 1988's Miss America, is the subject of this episode as Cam and Sammy dissect this enigmatic classic. They talk about late 1980s CanCon (again), why artists like MMO are far rarer in the digital age and the career arch of the Cowboy Junkies. The episode ends in a super namedrop-y fashion with mentions of This Mortal Coil, Tim Buckley and the Cocteau Twins. Note: Apologies on the audio. It improves within the first 10 minutes.
