Theme: Soundtrack of my life, Part 1
|As this show coincided with my 40th birthday I thought it was allowable to have a show (or a couple of shows) that are self indulgent. A few years ago I heard about someone doing "the soundtrack of their life" for a school project on the CBC and I thought this sounded like a cool idea and this seemed like a good time to try it.|
As I explain in the intro to the show it isn't just a list of my 25 favourite songs of all time, rather they are songs that have for various reasons been significant in my life.
As each song was special there is unfortunately a lot of talking during this show, but I felt each one needed its own introduction.
I decided to split the entire concept into two shows (I figure nobody is actually going to listen to a show about me, but even less than that would listen to a 3 hour show about me). So part one goes from my early years up till my time on my first radio station of CHRW. I will leave my time at university and CKMS for part two.
Here is a link to the video I mentioned during the show:
(as it happens I own the exact same outfit that Bobby Sherman is wearing during this video)

Theme: Cue the Zombies
|All the sets had 5 songs this show, don't know just worked out that way. Also interesting is that even without the time restriction of being on the radio, my shows are still about 2 hours long, guess that just the natural way they should be. |
I haven't done it in a while but this show I did play a set of people who either just had or were just going to play the area. The highlight was the Awkward Stage whom I saw in Waterloo last week, they put on a great show and they are playing across Canada so look for them in your town. Also in the set were Shout Out Out Out Out coming to the Starlight and The Bicycles coming to Trepid House.
