Whistler draws a unique collection of artists and local musicians and every so often Pique will spend some time catching up with who's out there.

 

This week's Q&A is with local DJ Fidel Ca$hflow (Phil Vienneau), which is either the most ridiculous or the most brilliant aliases of all time, depending on how you look at it.

 

Pique : So, who is Fidel Ca$hflow?

Fidel Ca$hflow : It's a name that actually (local DJ) Mike Grefner and I had come up with years ago and it just kind of stuck. It was a little bit of a joke and it just stuck.

 

Pique : Are you aware that there is another Fidel Cashflow?

 

FC : Yeah there is. I've heard that.

 

Pique : He's a rapper.

 

FC : Yeah, unfortunately. ( laughs)

 

Pique : Have you ever had any contact with him?

 

FC : No.

 

Pique : How would you resolve a dispute over names with this guy?

 

FC : (laughs) Um, jeez. That's a good question. I don't know. I'd have to battle him. To the death.

 

Pique : When did you decide to become a DJ?

 

FC : Um, that was about six years, seven years ago maybe?

 

Pique : And where'd this decision come from?

 

FC : We were just throwing shows back home and I just had the gear and it was sitting around collecting dust between shows basically so I just started doing a few (shows) and really enjoyed it.

 

Pique : Where's home?

 

FC : Red Deer, Alberta.

 

Pique : And how long have you been in Whistler?

 

FC : I've been here now, I think, it's my fourth season.
