The Vancouver-based king of the music interview, Nardwuar the Human Serviette has just been added to the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame.
Nardwuar has been blowing people’s minds with his extensive musical knowledge and research on his interview subjects for more than 30 years, skyrocketing in popularity after breaking through to an online audience with his YouTube channel.
While he’s travelled the world interviewing everyone from Cardi B to Jay Z, he’s always stayed true to his roots. He’s had his own show every Friday on UBC’s CITR radio since 1987 and regularly promotes Vancouver, often giving his interview subjects gifts representative of the city.
“I can’t even explain myself; So for the group of people who nominated me to explain ‘Nardwuar the Human Serviette’ to the The BC Entertainment Hall Of Fame is incredible,” he says of the honour.
Nardwuar dedicated the award to his mother, a high school teacher who he says “instilled in [him] a deep love of history.”
He will receive a star on Granville Street’s Walk of Fame at a ceremony this summer, alongside fellow 2019 inductees Colin James and Breaking Bad producer Moira Walley-Beckett.
