~~~~~~~~Spooky Night Vibes!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Titles and sounds tonight inspired by the darkening skies, leading listeners down a path toward All Hallow's Eve. It's a perfect time for gruesome garage and bone rattling Rock n Roll, and tonight's guest Sean was ideal with pics from the 50s, 60s and beyond! Pack in some classic horror punk, top with a dollop of death rock, and you're well on your way to a week full of ritual sacrifice to the undead.

Rock Aganist Racism
Special guest Magnus hung out on air with me, we talked about punky reggae, Rock Against Racism, and the ongoing effort to dismantle colonialism in Canadian radio.

Unfortunately, due to a technical problem with the broadcast, the sound quality is poor.

Guest selector: Rob from Neptoon! 

This show was scaffholded loosely around the selections put forth by my guest, Rob from Neptoon Records! Among Rob's pick were a few Canadian garage artists whose music he re-released on the Neptoon house label (Tom Northcott Trio, as well as The Northwest Company). We had a good chat about record shops, labels, and the special roles they play in the proliferation of this thing we love called music...

This show was broadcast live from my new place in Strathcona and happened after a solid week of moving that included a drive through the mountains from Alberta and the wrangling of stuff, schedules, and people.

I might sound a little cracked.

First dispatch from Isolation 

This set was put together, recorded and edited with limited technology, but gets the job done!

Really steep learning curve making this happen, but hopefully that means smooth cruising from here.

Songs about strange days, isolation, resistance, acceptance, getting antsy and staying cool.

Teenage Wasteland

Set tonight was inspired by teenage love, passion, and angst. A reminder that the fire still burns inside and it's an authoritarian goal to extinguish it. Safeguard that fire with rock and roll; stoke the flames with action. Shout out to the youth who occupied the Ministry of Energy in protest of Coastal Gas Link's incursion into Wet'suwet'en territory. Gotta keep them fires burning baby (Should have played Suicide "Dream Baby Dream"...)

Inspired by a good book

Viv Albertine was a young music freak kinda like me. She puzzled over the words "Safe As Milk" taped onto the guitar case of a fellow student, then bought the record when she saw it in a store. I have been led by a similar adventurous curiosity in music discovery. The playlist tonight reflects this and is peppered with gems gleaned over past explorations along with new unearthings.

Slow tide roll waves play faves

The waves tonight bounced us on a long and slow build from lo-fi Appalachian mountain crooning through various saturations of power pop, a nugget of garage rock, then breaking in a jazz freakout, swelling back up through anarcho, noise, darkwave and post-punk, and finally spilling out onto a phosphorescent matrix of synth.

Replayed on July 11, 2020

This was Wavestation's inaugural show! (or the first time I called the show by name)

You can tell I am still getting my sea- legs! Doing my best to represent a music scene that I was largely unfamiliar with having just emerged from my Master's.
