“Our City” – With Vancouver Radio Host Kirk LaPointe: Cher’s Interview

Kirk Lapointe

Last Monday I had the absolute pleasure of talking with RoundHouse Radio’s (89.3 FM) “Our City” host Kirk LaPointe.  RoundHouse Radio is a Canadian radio station in Vancouver, British Columbia.  I was honored to be interviewed by Kirk; he has a segment on his show called, “ExPat CallOut”.  Former Vancouverites who live in all areas of the globe talk about their experiences living in their new locations.  From politics to local topics of interest, Kirk LaPointe’s show is a terrific way for people to hear about the experiences and influences expats have taken with them from Vancouver.  The show provides a unique perspective on what it’s like to be from this beautiful West Coast city, and how it is different (or similar) to where they now call home.

Despite the fact I am not from Vancouver, I was graciously invited to the show.  The time went by in a “New York”, I mean, “Chicago” minute!

The wonderfu
l folks from the show have kindly invited me back some time in the future so I can provide listeners with a Chicago major event (or two) that might capture their interest.  Who knows, maybe we’ll have some Vancouver travelers asking about that deep-dish pizza they’ve (now) heard about.  I think it’s safe to say that Chicago will no doubt be hosting some pretty interesting events this year.  Here’s a hint:  there’s a cup involved for the win, and there is also talk about a lot of water…………….Stay tuned!

Here is a link to the show; I sure hope you like it:

    I listened to all of it, well done Cher!! Sounds like you fit right in with those Americans although you may need to step up your pace a bit. The man who asked you straight up for ten bucks was a bit more than a little ballsy, wow! Glad you like being here. ❤️

      Hi John! Ah, thank you so much! I really, really appreciate your kind words. Yes, I sure am trying but indeed, I must pick up the pace “eh”! *LOL* Hahaha oh yes, I was shocked when I was asked for 10 bucks! And it wasn’t only the fact that he approached me for money IN A GROCERY STORE but it was specifically 10 bucks! My goodness! But yes, I do love it here, John! Cher xo
