Hey everybody I’m Stephanie Beaumont...

Welcome to SEA AND BE SCENE ... And HEARD!

For seven years now I’ve been celebrating all the people places and things that make the 4 Atlantic Provinces so very special – here on website at and on SEA AND BE SCENE TV too..

I’m ever so grateful to the folks at COVE FM in beautiful Hubbards, Nova Scotia for giving me the chance to expand our EAST COAST Celebration to the wonderful world of radio.

Now with each broadcast I want to bring you closer to some of the amazing personalities that make up this corner of the world – they might be native to Nova Scotia or New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland & Labrador – or they may be kindred spirits who simply adore living and working in Atlantic Canada . The only requirement here is that you raise your fun flag and wave it in salute of Canada’s Awesome East Coast.

Our chats will be just that – very conversational, not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable.

What follows are the downloadable podcasts along with show notes for your references.

AND... if by chance you're interested in sponsoring the show drop me a line [email protected] and we'll make it happen!!!

Ep.23 Dawn Chafe & Alan Doyle - Broadcast Date Jan. 17/18

I always love chatting with today’s guests – both natives of Newfoundland & Labrador – both award winning in their field. Coming up later in the show – I’ll share a quick catch up with the pride of Petty Harbour – Mr.Alan Doyle who's always on the go.  In fact the man just kicked off another North American tour this week – and  between promoting his new book and performing he’s been producing a ton to boot. He's never too busy for a chat though. Check out the links below for everything from one on one interviews to a very hilarious round of INsights IN 10 – from backstage to behind the scenes to the red carpet and the green carpet too! In fact that’s where we last crossed paths in Saskatoon just before the Canadian Country Music Awards. First we’ll connect to school mate of Mr.Doyle’s who I call Madame Editor – she is in fact the Executive Editor of Atlantic Business Magazine - the longest publishing regional business magazine in Atlantic Canada as well as the most award-winning and largest circulation business magazine in the region. As you might imagine it’s a massive endeavour and we’ll talk about her role with ABM and so much more - including her feelings on 'fake news' and her favourite to- dos when you’re in her home province, and her sage advice for upcoming journalists. Enjoy my conversation with the remarkable Dawn Chafe...

Ep.22 Jana Stackhouse & Kurt Stoodley - Broadcast Date Jan. 10/18

For today’s show we take to the phones for 2 great calls! First - a quick catch up call with award winning, New Brunswick born filmmaker Jana Stackhouse. I got word that her latest short AWAY HOME has been selected for a very cool film festival hosted by TIFF - Canada's Top Ten Film Festival. Jana’s been on the go with her work and busy these days so she promised to come back for the full hour another time – just enough time today to get the scoop on her movie and this weekend’s big festival.

Then another fun phone call with my dear friend and former co-host Kurt Stoodley. The award winning broadcaster is certainly a familiar face on Canada’s East Coast – a native of Newfoundland where he worked in radio and TV, but most remembered for the the 5 years during which Atlantic Canada woke up every morning with the man.  That's when he served as co-host on ATV’s BREAKFAST TELEVISION.  We’ll get the scoop on his 3 plus decade long career and so much more – from his love of live TV to his love of hockey – his advice to anyone hoping to follow in his footsteps to his tips for taking in the nation's capital - which is exactly where we reached him when we called.  Please enjoy my conversation with the one and only Kurt Stoodley.

Show Notes - For the purposes of links, omissions and clarifications

If you're in the Toronto area make plans to see AWAY HOME Saturday, January 13th at 2:30pm when it screens as part of TIFF's Canada's Top Ten Film Festival! Jana will be there to introduce her film and answer questions as well.  For tickets and additional information click here.

Ep.21 Lisa Brokop & John Dunsworth - Broadcast Date Jan.3,2018

With the New Year upon us – I wanted to take care of a few things undone things before we head full on into 2018.

First up - I want to share my chat with Award Winning Country Recording Artist Lisa Brokop – it was recorded back in September - out in Saskatoon at the tail end of Canadian Country Music Week. The BC born singer/songwriter first burst onto the scene as a teen a back in the 90’s and she’s been busy ever since. While our paths did crossed a lot back in the day – it’s been a while to say the least so it sure was lovely to sit and catch up over coffee just prior to her return to Nashville.

As well - just this past October we lost a legend here on Canada’s EAST Coast – and although his talents were celebrated around the world we proudly claim Mr.John Dunsworth as an incredible Nova Scotian. Ask anyone and they’ll tell ya - the Award Winning actor was a life force – winning over audiences on the big and small screens and on stage as well – always on the go – always up for a chat so in the second half of the show – I’d like to share a very lovely conversation I had with Mr.Dunsworth back in 2013 – when his series HAVEN was shooting right here in Hubbards. By the time the ON SET SPECIAL aired and I included my interviews with the rest of the cast only about 4 minutes of that my time with John made it to the broadcast – so today as a tribute I’ll let you hear all the fun we had – so please stay tuned for that.

Ep.20 Jonathan Torrens - Broadcast Date Dec.20,2017

What a treat it was catching up to today’s guest – he is hands down the best! Ask anyone and they’ll tell ya PEI born, Nova Scotia based award winning actor Jonathan Torrens is the finest kind of fella and these days he’s certainly one of the busiest. Having just added author to his ever growing list of accomplishments – he was in the midst of a cross country book tour with his CANADIANITY co-author and Taggart and Torrens Podcast co-host former Our lady Peace drummer Jeremy Taggart. Lucky for me Jonathan was off the road for the weekend and so we met at a not so quiet coffee shop in Truro, Nova Scotia. The hub of Nova Scotia, the home of his long time gig TRAILER PARK BOYS and not too far from his country home. Hard to cover it all of in an hour but we’ll chat about everything from his work on TV, to his best selling book, his lovely family to his growing legions of bahds – we’ll talk Christmas and about his plans for the future and so much more – here’s my conversation with the remarkable Jonathan Torrens.

Ep.19 Susan Kent - Broadcast Date Dec. 13, 2017

(Bonus guests: Shaun Majumder & Jonny Harris)

Today’s show comes complete with a cornucopia of comedy – 3 funny folks who not only hail from the province of Newfoundland & Labrador but who also star in the HATCHING, MATCHING AND DISPATCHING Holiday Special A CHRISTMAS FURY.

Just a few days before the December 3rd premier I popped by the Dartmouth home of Susan Kent to get the full scoop on this amazing reunion of the Fury family – from the top shelf team of talent to first call from the show’s creator Mary Walsh and all kinds of wonderful stuff in between – of course Susan plays Mary’s daughter Darlene in A CHRISTMAS FURY and we’ll have that conversation coming up later in the show.

We’ll also dive into our SEA AND BE SCENE TV archives for a special road trip edition of Insights IN 10 with Corner Brook Comedian Jonny Harris who stars as the always in some type of trouble Troy Fury, and we’ll flashback for our visit to the Halifax, Nova Scotia set of THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES for an interview with Burlington Newfoundland native Shaun Majumder – Shawn just resumed his role as the dim- witted grave digger Cyril in A CHRISTMAS FURY - we talked to him about everything from his hilarious homeland to his mega award winning show so stay tuned for that.

But we'll kick off the show with that time we caught up to Ms. Susan Kent - on the 22 MINUTES set – the show had just received the truly prestigious Icon Award from the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television for 23 years of delivering that laughs week after week. We’ll discuss that honour and how she came to be a part of this stellar team.

Ep.17 - KOUMBIE Airdate Nov.29, 2017

I was so happy when the award winning and wonderful young filmmaker and actress Koumbie popped into the cove fm studios for a chat. The Nova Scotia born phenom has provided a ton stellar stuff to feature on SEA AND BE SCENE over the years.  From her work on screen the small screen in award winning productions like Mr. D and STUDIO BLACK!, to her recent big screen role in BLACK COP to her efforts behind the scenes with both WIFT (Women in film and television) and the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (AFCOOP), to even writing and directing her own films - Koumbie is a force! And at the moment that force is focused on the theatre -  directing a new play about the Halifax Explosion called "Lullaby" and in rehearsals for a role in another called “At this Hour” which will open December 16th. We’ll talk about all of that and so much more including auditions, busy schedules, candy canes and car rides – here’s my conversation with Koumbie...

Ep.15 - JANICE LANDRY Airdate Nov.8, 2017

I so enjoyed meeting today’s guest way back when SEA AND BE SCENE had just launched and we were both booked to be a part of the broadcast team for the Christmas Daddies telethon in Cape Breton.  Of course Janice Landry was familiar face to CTV viewers long before then – as reporter and anchor who would go on to helm her own production company and author three books with a fourth set for release this month. Ask anyone who’s lucky enough to cross her path and they’ll tell you she is a force – excelling at all that she sets her mind to do and that as you’ll soon hear that's a tremendous amount. Here’s my conversation with the remarkable Janice Landry.

Ep.13 - MALLORY JOHNSON Airdate Oct.25,2017

Well back in early September I was in SASKATOON for Canadian Country Music Week to shoot a special at the CCMA Awards, catch up with old friends and meet new country artists. One of those fresh faces - from the province of Newfoundland and Labrador was Mallory Johnson. Who arrived at the annual gathering after winning the association’s nation wide competition - the 2017 CCMA Spotlight.

Ep.12 - DAN SWINIMER Airdate Oct.18,2017

It’s always a great time hanging out with today’s guest - I should know - I’ve been doing it for the past 4 plus decades or so.  You see not only is he an incredibly talented songwriter, producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and artist manager – I’m proud to say Dan Swinimer is my cousin. My father Jack and Dan’s dad Bill grew up in Gold River, Nova Scotia, so even though he’s based on the west coast now - his EAST Coast roots run deep. There’s no denying his impact on the Canadian Country Music Scene has gone nation wide – and his work and touring schedule is full-tilt busy. Fortunately for me, a radio tour for his artist JoJo Mason has brought him to Halifax allowing for a quick trip down the shore to see the family and pop by my kitchen for a coffee - creaky chairs and all. We’ll talk about his award winning roster, his hit songwriting and how the industry has changed over the years since he started in the biz, we’ll talk about destiny and moonshine and so much more... here’s my conversation with Manicdown Music founder, president and chief creative officer Dan Swinimer.

ps - Just to be clear (before you judge me unfairly) I have nothing against subtitled movies - it's just so rarely I actually sit and only watch a movie - usually my viewing happens at 3am on Netflix while I'm folding laundry etc. so I don't often have the screen focus required for subtitles... I do however look forward to such a luxury before too long.

Ep. 9 - JASON BARRY Airdate Sept.27,2017

Just a few weeks ago I was in Saskatoon for Canadian Country Music Week, to shoot a special at the CCMA Awards, and to catch up with old colleagues and new country artists. Lucky for me I had a chance to sit down for a chat with a great friend who just happens to be a mega award winning musician, producer, songwriter and studio owner.  He’s also a native of Newcastle, New Brunswick and one of the sweetest guys I know. Now, I should tell you quiet spots during CCMA week are few and far between – so you just might hear some hustle and bustle in the background and a hiccup or two in my portable studio system but you’re guaranteed to be amazed at what this guy's got on the go!  Here’s my conversation with Jason Barry....

EP. 8 - MEAGHAN SMITH Airdate Sept.20,2017

You know how I always warn "our chats will be very conversational, not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable."

Well enjoyable may not go far enough for today’s guest. All I know is the hour sure flew by when Juno award winning singer/songwriter Meaghan Smith dropped by the station. The Ontario born, Nova Scotia based artist is in the midst of a wonderful new project – called OUR SONG. We talked about that and so much more like all the lovely twists and turns her career path has taken – we talked about juggling life and whether or not there are ghosts, we played "INsights IN 10" and of course we played some of her incredible music too. Here is my conversation with Meaghan Smith...

The version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE that Meaghan loves with Colin Firth as Mr.Darcy was actually a 6 part mini-series back in 1995.  The lead actress in the role of Elizabeth Bennet was Jennifer Ehle - and it turns out she's not British at all just really great at the accent.  Ms.Ehle hails from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
