Ruby Slippers for July 27th 2018 7-8 pm

Hey ho everybody!

End of another month.

Not a fan of the high heat and humidity, have to say, but for those who are I  hope you have had the summer to beat them all! The deal is I find it really hard to breathe and El Doggo, a long haired beastie, has spent the better part of the month in suspended animation.
However,  that just means we had a ton of time to listen to music and how great is that?
So here's a playlist with something for everyone. Enjoy.

Blood On The Frozen Sand ... Christian and the Sinners * New, recorded at CIUT895FM
Shine of Her Moon ... Basement Arms * (disbanded too soon)
She Sells Sanctuary ... The Cult (in town on the 25th!)
Throw It All Away ... In My Coma *
Float The Flood ... Ace Of Wands * (new, local, amazing)
Toward The Sun ... Dream Aria *
Automaton ... Cypher *
Light of Age ... Mad Ones *
Taking A Ride ... The Pink Elephants *
I Will Give You Everything ... Skydiggers * (at Crossing Point Festival July 27,28)
Good Little Girls ... Katey Morley * (one of our cohosts in the past)
A Rose For Emily ... The Zombies (yes, I know I have played this but really? Listen to it!)
Robot Boy ... The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger
Heavy Disguise ... The Strawbs

There you go. See you next month for the LOOOOONNNNNGGGG weekend show

Thanks for listening


Addendum: This is a doc about another community radio station and what it takes to keep it going.  Not an easy feat.

Hey everybody!

The weekend of the perfect festival is upon us! In case you don't know, I refer to Hillside in Guelph, three days of fun, music, food and love all wrapped up in a small conservation area about 20 minutes outside of the city. Went for many years but times have changed I'm afraid. Still, it has a special place in my heart.

So here is a sampler of diverse and awesome music from this year's Festival


(You Cant Stop) The Machine.....Cadence Weapon ft. Buck 65 *
Sisters (ft. Northern Voice) ... A Tribe Called Red *
Banger ... Walrus *
Misery ... Crown Lands *
Born Yesterday ... Hollerado *
Freedom for a Policeman ... Chad Van Gaalen *
Open ... Rhye *
Models Pt. 1 ... Busty and the Bass *
Endless Dive ... Anemone *
Velvet for Sale ... U.S. Girls *
Early In The Morning ... Plants and Animals *
Nobody Knows (produced by the Darcys) ... Iskwe *
Can't Be Saved ... Tamarack *
Uh Oh (ft. Serena Ryder) ... Jeremy Fisher *
An Actor's Revenge ... Destroyer *
Is There Anyone ... The Kents *
The Sad Skinhead ... Faust


Thanks for listening

This one was for Roger, my partner in crime at Hillside. I miss you.
