So, every Monday for a decade plus now, DJ Bald Boy and I have sat down and played the album tracks you know but rarely hear on regular commercial rock radio.
This used to bug me until someone, actually the late Waterloo Region Record Arts editor Phil Bast, suggested to me to, essentially, do something about it so I did and voila, a show at the then University of Waterloo station which through various incarnations has morphed into Sound FM CKMS 100.3 FM. We're soon to change our frequency to 102.7 but that's a matter for another day.
For today, I thought I would start blogging Bald Boy's shows. He looks a lot like me, actually. Might even be me.
So here's last night's show set list first printed and then displayed via YouTube videos of the songs I played. Included were a couple tracks from an outstanding Toronto band, Dream Aria, which contacted me and provided some CDs from which I played the tune you see below. Oh, and here's Bald Boy's Facebook page from where you can scan all set lists and check out our station at soundfm.ca
