Oct. 26th show rundown (that re-aired this past week!)

While round two of an unfortunate cold took away any remaining voice I had to record a new show, re-airing the Oct. 26th show at least allowed us to re-air some more awesome music again. And if nothing else? We’ve got some sweet, sweet shows coming up over the next few weeks… read on for more info!

What we (double-)spun:

The Coppertone – Last Goodbyes
Belgrave – Distance
Paper Lions – Lost The War
Dan Mangan – Starts With Them, Ends With Us
Grey Kingdom – Haunted
Inlet Sound – The Peculiar Disappearance of Marion Bojangles
Right By Midnight – Hey Rialto (don’t forget: you can help these guys fundraise for their new album here)
Kathryn Calder – Who Are You?
The Darcys – Shaking Down The Old Bones
Dave Norris and Local Ivan – Alma Mater
Arkells – Bloodlines
Hey Rosetta! – Seventeen

Coming up this week: great friends of the show hotshotcasino were in town this weekend and graciously gave me a hand in co-hosting the show. No, really – they picked out songs and everything. Tune in this Wednesday at 1pm, CHUO 89.1 FM in Ottawa or online at chuo.fm. And keep your eyes peeled for yet another exciting announcement, about next week’s show…

Backlog #2! “There’s a shoutout if I ever heard one” – our [also overdue] July 6th show rundown

As our June 29th show was yet another repeat show (but a good one, hey?), we were psyched to put together a lovely show for July 6th featuring fantastic Toronto folk-pop group Little City, who – you may remember – joined us live in studio last summer for an awesome live performance (you can relive that magic over on our “Live at CHUO” page). These guys were back with another fantastic track from their debut EP and took some time off from spending Canada Day in the capital to chat about Twitter, “Web 3.0” and what they’ve been up to over the last year.

Little City – Bright Glow

Interview with Little City

And of course, the tracks we spun:

Wildlife – Move to the City
The Deep Dark Woods – Westside Street
The Express – Nobody Knows
Belgrave – Six Minutes
The Details – Weightless in the Dark
Graham Wright – Leftovers
Little City – Bright Glow (Live at CHUO)
Matt Pond PA – Spring Fawn [WEEKLY IMPORT]
Rival Boys – No Selfish Love

Many thanks again to Little City – and if you happen to be in Toronto, make sure to check ’em out at the El Mocambo on July 22nd!
