dignity

I was meowing on the radio about the lack of Family Day festivities and traditions so Meredith wrote me a traditional Family Day hymn to sing with my Family on Monday.

me-and-rick

My radio best friend Rick Lee has a vlog called Off-Air and the other day he invited me over to the Jack FM studios for an 8-Bit Rick segment. We played Blades of Steel and Rick won.

ghost-06

I remember listening to Coast-to-Coast AM with Art Bell years ago and he was talking about EVPs or electronic voice phenomenon. People picking up the voices of the dead on their recordings. It has always fascinated me, and so today on the show I tried to contacts the spirits and voices from beyond!

Jason texted in to the show to say: “Dude, that EVP ghost call was the best worst thing ever.” Um, thanks?

producer: Jamie Ellard

Happy Halloween! Go with yourself.

Meredith was reading about the Cosmo Car (a car just for women!) the other day. Horrendous. So she made a car commercial for it.

beach-slang-b-and-w

I knew it would be a good day when I woke up and threw on my JAPANDROIDS t-shirt. Trolling twitter and this tweet came down the feed.

Well hey now. Beach Slang covering one of my favourite band’s bestest songs! Alright.

The song is part of a compilation record from Polyvinyl Records called Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl. The 20th anniversary record features bands on their roster covering other bands on the roster.  Beach Slang plugging in and turning up JAPANDROIDS “Younger us” is pretty much a layup.

We’re getting close to Beach Slang’s sophomore album, A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings, out on September 24th.

JAPANDROIDS begin their four night home stand at The Cobalt in Vancouver on October 5th.

Said "fuck it" and got up to drink with me instead. #JAPANDROIDS TIX ARRIVED! @polyvinylrecords @thecobalt_van

Well intrepid music blog reader….I don’t just share soundcloud streams on Hype Machine, I am also a commercial radio DJ. I’ve been working in alternative or modern rock radio since 2003 (and five years before that on college radio). I have a big ole space in my heart for radio songs and wanted a place to collect a few songs that “I used to play on the radio all thew time.” But now they rarely come up. So here’s my new music podcast, Maximum Warp, Engage. The show is gunna be songs from Y2K to 2009. I’ll likely focus on modern rock radio hits, but you’ll be subjected to some CanCon forgotten wonders and the occasional Thursday cut. I was on the radio in Victoria and now Vancouver….so it’ll be my take based on recollections of West Coast Canadian Radio. If you have any feedback or requests for a song to dig up…don’t be shy. Comment or tweet or email me. It’s all good.

And depending on how I feel and where my energy is at… Alternative to What?…my meditations on new/charting modern rock might come back for an new episode.

Go with yourself.
