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.

We also pay tribute to Robert “Throb” Young, guitarist for Primal Scream. He passed away earlier this week. The first set is dedicated to him.

Happy 24th Anniversary! Show tracks for Sat. Aug. 30/14

Here's to another 24 years! Umm, now way you people would put up with us for another quarter century!! lol Jeesh, a quarter century, now I officially feel old.
It's been a pleasure, a privilege and an honour to have been your Saturday night musical friends for the last 24 years.
We consider ourselves very lucky to have had this time to bring you the music we love. We hope you have loved it too.
We couldn't have done it without you, the listeners. Thank you for your time, support and dare I say love.
And as a thank you be the first one to comment on this post and win this CD!
It was a double theme night as we featured 2 things that were direct influences on us starting this show in the first place.
C86 and John Peel.
Today would have been John Peel's 75th birthday. It's not an exaggeration to call John an idol of ours. From listening on the shortwave to being able to listen online it was quite a ride with him. He certainly influenced this show and it's hosts.
The first part of the show is the C86 release in it's entirety. The rest of the show features tracks from the movement.
Congratulations to Kenny (Windsor) and Christine (Windsor) on winning the Paul Weller concert tickets.
Remember to comment on this post to win the Inspiral Carpets CD.
