The leaves are dropping and boy oh boy so is the new music, with plenty of great stuff coming out weekly; we have lots to go through once again. We’ve also got a couple of great shows coming up this week to preview and a listen back to a moment from our very first program as we approach our birthday. Tell the Band to Go Home officially started on September 29, 2002 and we’re still going strong! Here’s to many more!
Lots of new music to enjoy tonight as well as a look ahead to a show going on in Winnipeg tonight featuring an interesting new artist.
Jeremy’s along to co-host today and make things more interesting. We played some great new music, chatted about some concerts past and future, and dove into some classic recordings that I recently picked up in Toronto.
Tonight the university is being overrun by classic rock lovin' loogans stumbling around pretending that AC/DC is still cool, so we're prerecorded so I can keep my distance. We will, however, hear a few people who can actually sing do some AC/DC songs, as well as some other "classic" covers. There are other, far more deserving shows going on, so a chat about some past and future worth caring about. As if that weren't enough, we've got some great new music!
Today a whole pile of new music that’s come in over the past while, as well as some of the new-to-me classics that I recently picked up on my trip to Toronto. Coming up this week is the 2 night CD release party for JP Hoe’s new one, so a preview/retrospective is in order!
On the eve of the historic Rheostatics reunion shows going on this weekend in Toronto, a listen back to a show that was produced for their last (aborted) reunion. This show originally aired on December 6, 2012.
Tonight, a show I’ve been thinking about doing since I started at UMFM, a beginners’ guide to Rheostatics. One of my favourite bands of all time, and a band that changed my life forever, Rheostatics albums don’t always jump out at new listeners – sometimes they’re a bit hard to get into. Tonight’s show culls some of the most amazing and accessible songs by one of Canada’s most legendary and respected bands.
