Theme: Polka, Polka, Polka
On Air: Frank and Michelle
I actually started off with almost a half hour of polka (or polka type) music for the Oktoberfest show, longer than usual, I've marked the songs from that set that I have never played before. After that it was sampling the new relases until we ended off with the Jonathan Richman spotlight to highlight the fact that me, Michelle and the Ambassador saw him play at Lee's Palace the week before.
The theme to the next show is being determined by outside forces, first off, although it will be almost a week before Halloween I think I'll have to play a few ghouly selections. But most of the show will feature Canadian artists as it SOCAN time at CKMS. To explain, SOCAN is the agency that distributes royalty money to artists, to judge how much each artist should get they survey stations at different times during the year to see what they are playing. In the case of a campus station like CKMS we get surveyed for 4 consecutive days every 3 months. I don't know exactly how much an artist gets each time I play them during a SOCAN period but I think (and hope) that it is betwen $0.50 and $1.00, although it also depends on the length of the song so it's not easy to say. I know a few people on the list have songs registered with SOCAN so they might be able to give me more details. The long and the short of it is... request a local artist who is registered with SOCAN then the next time you see them you can say "Hey I requested you during SOCAN week - you owe me a beer!".
We also might have a guest on the show, but I don't want to jinx it.
And I know that New Order released an album since the last show, but I didn't think a spotlight on them would fit in this upcoming show so I'll leave it until the first show of November.
I have also attached a list of the upcoming shows at the Jane Bond for the next while. I'm looking forward to both the Spookey Ruben and Joel Plaskett shows especially.
