TV Broke My Brain! Show tracks for Sat. Nov. 29/14

Time flies when you're having fun and when the show is a third light. We were an hour shorter due to Lancer basketball programming. So we remove the Northern Soul & Mixtape segments for this week. They will both return next week as we start once again at 9PM.
We open the show with a couple of my RSD Black Friday purchases including New Order, David Bowie, Tears For Fears. I wanted the Husker Du release as well but just couldn't bring myself to spend any more money, which usually doesn't stop I just know if it's still there next week I'm going to cave and buy it. It's coloured vinyl after all!

Love Is A Chain Store! Show tracks for Sat. Nov. 22/14

The return of Ride and S*M*A*S*H but in very different ways. Ride announcing a reunion tour with stops in Toronto and New York in early June. Let's hope for a more expansive US/Canada tour a little later in the year. S*M*A*S*H releasing a new EP "Without Regret", their first new material in a few years as far as I can tell. See below.
Also, another themed Mixtape Memories as we delve into the 4AD back catalogue. I do love Sloppy Heart!
