Soul Boys Of The Western World! Show tracks for Sat. Oct. 18/14

Make sure to join us next week as Cowboys & Indies will be "Keeping It Peel"! As part of the tribute to the late, great John Peel and a celebration of his life and career at Radio 1, we will be featuring Peel Sessions from your favourite bands. Some will be famous and some not so famous. He is an idol of ours and a certain influence on this program. There will also be a ticket giveaway for Peter Hook & The Light performing at The Magic Bag Theater. Don't miss it!

Tonight we partied like it was 1994. Opening tracks and the Mixtape Memories segment were all albums that were released 20 years ago. In three weeks time we will continue this as we celebrate the electronic artists in the Mixtape Memories segment. No cheating, let the selections be a surprise.

Women Respond To Bass! Show tracks for Sat. Sept. 13/14

It's with a sad heart that I say goodbye to my friend Julian Belanger. RIP my friend. My condolences to his family and friends. We met years ago when I worked at Dr Disc and found we had mutual tastes in some bands like Ozric Tentacles, Porcupine Tree, Rush, Deep Purple, King Crimson etc. He turned me on to new music and I did the same for him. That friendship and love of music carried on through our mutual work at CJAM. Your memory was dedicated on the show tonight with some special tracks I know you would have liked. I pray your at peace my friend. You will be missed.
