About our Headliner Larke Miller.

Larke Miller is a Vancouver-based stand-up comedian. As a teenager, she began acting in film and television. Her love of comedy and writing led her to Los Angeles where she was accepted into the Groundlings program. It was in Los Angeles that she began performing stand-up comedy.
Early on in Larke’s stand-up career, she was selected as a Los Angeles finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. This led to an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

She has won a number of comedy contests, including the Shifting Baselines contest, which was judged by Larry David, Bill Mahr, Tom Arnold and Julia Louis Dreyfus. Larke had the honor of performing at one of Richard Pryor’s last birthday celebrations. Perhaps the biggest highlight of Larke’s stand-up career, was being asked to perform on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Larke recently filmed a stand-up special which airs regularly on CTV/Comedy Network.

On October 5th. 2013 Larke will be seen in the Hallmark Network (W Network in Canada) movie of the week “Dead Letters,” and in 2014 in the feature film “Sitting On The Edge of Marlene.”

Subject Line: J Peachy retires from Sound Therapy Radio
Today marks the official day that I formally retire from Sound Therapy Radio.  Over the past few months a new group of radio programmers, Lauren, June and Megan have been successfully taking over the daily production of the show.  While this community radio program is owned by no-one in particular, the radio crew will be responsible for producing the weekly magazine program, which broadcasts on CJSF 90.1 FM Burnaby . Over the past three years the program has grown organically through many different contributors, hosts, guests and listeners.  The program has won many awards including a National Radio Award, CJSF Station awards and recognition from the Canadian Mental Health Association – Simon Fraser Branch.
I will be continuing with other work in the same spirit that developed the radio program.  We hope you keep listening and supporting the program.
