Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

Rich Terfry joins me now. Better known to most as Buck 65, the acclaimed musician and broadcaster has a new book out, Wicked and Weird: The Amazing Tales of Buck 65. In the book he talks about his life growing up on Canada’s east coast, in a town called Mount Uniacke in Nova Scotia. Like his music, this book has a unique voice, blending a gift of storytelling and narrative, with thoughtful introspection and remembrance. It’s a compelling and engaging book. I’ll get Mr. Terfry to tell us about the stories in this book, about growing up poor, about an obsession with baseball, and the talent for music that’s garnered him a great following in this country and beyond. It’s a witty book, and often perceptive. I guess that’s what you get when the author grows up shy and observant. The book is published by Doubleday. The website for more is at www.buck65.com. The Twitter handle is @buck65. The radio program, Drive is on CBC Radio Two, weekdays at 3.30pm. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, in Toronto one day in mid-August, Rich Terfry; Mr. Terfry, good morning.
