Michael Heffernan researched the local music scene as only someone passionately curious could. The result is his rich collection of interviews and monologues about the independent music culture you sort of know only a little something about. Mike speaks with well-known CBC host and author Jamie Fitzpatrick about Let It All Fall: Underground Music and the Culture of Rebellion in Newfoundland, 1977-95 and all that stuff.

MIKE HEFFERNAN was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He is the author of the national bestseller Rig: An Oral History of the Ocean Ranger Disaster and The Other Side of Midnight: Taxicab Stories. Rig was originally adapted to the stage by Rising Tide Theatre and the following year had a sold-out run at the Arts and Culture Centre. In 2023, Rig was presented by RCA Theatre at the LSPU Hall. Let It All Fall: Underground Music and the Culture of Rebellion in Newfoundland, 1977-95 is his latest book. Mike’s essays have appeared in Riddle Fence, This Magazine, Geist, The Newfoundland Quarterly, Our Times and have been performed on CBC Radio. He’s currently working on a book about the Dana Bradley murder investigation, which will be adapted to the stage.

JAMIE FITZPATRICK is a writer and broadcaster in St. John’s and a member of the Port Authority writing group. He is the author of the novels The End of Music and You Could Believe in Nothing which won the Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers in Newfoundland and Labrador.
