Post Countdown Blues! Show tracks for Sat. Oct. 27/12

What to do after a big weeks show with a countdown? Well, forget
several things at home like glasses, music, my head if it wasn't attached.
So alter up a couple sets and save the forgotten tracks for next

So excited to see new material from an ole favourite of ours
The Wolfhounds. They will be releasing a new single in November
on Odd Box Records. But you'll have to settle for listening to it here
because if I aired it, it might offend some people's delicate sensibilities!

Sons Of The Stage! Show tracks for Sat. Oct. 20/12

The 30 Best British Albums Of The Last 25 Years (1987 - 2012)

You sent in your favourite albums and we compiled them into a snazzy
countdown. Thanks to all who participated and sent in their lists.
The winner received the most votes overall and the most #1 placings from those who numbered their lists. A few artists fell a few places because they received votes for multiple albums. I was only allowing one entry per band because I didn't want duplicate bands in the countdown. So the album with the most votes won out.

We opened the show with a theme song to get you in the countdown mood.
Hope you enjoyed the show.

Sunlight Bathed The Golden Glow! Show tracks for Sat. Oct. 6/12

Coincidences & Covers may have well been the name of the show tonight. We featured lots of covers, some planned some not. Then there's the coincidences, like running out of printer ink the day after I run across The Grammatics cd for the first time in a long while. That cd has a track called Inkjet Lakes. Could have used a lake of ink this morning I tell you.
Another coincidence is the new Mojo featuring a free cd with indie tracks from 1982-1987 while this show is collecting peoples best album choices for the last 25 years. Submissions for that show will close Wednesday Oct.10 by the way, with the show airing Saturday Oct. 20.
