Radio - Sunday, November 15th, 2015

This show was our fundraising show. Kind of an all hands on deck position. With help from Candy who videotapes the studio 3 sessions and Chloe who organizes SHEXD and Mark who organized the phone room. There was muffins and cookies and stories about the last six months of EXD programming with association to how lucky we are to have a radio station like CIUT that is supportive of such nerding out on puck rock. By the way if you haven't donated to CIUT you can do so here

We started out with a game of name that tune. Mr brown of the Prophesy got his start as a rude boy DJ and so we try and find some punk or hardcore covers of a ska song and get hie to figure out who did the original. We played the Restarts cover of the Selector's "Everyday" recorded at the old studio on St. George. 

THE SELECTOR - Everyday (Times Hard) (Two Tone)

The campaign theme is "Love Your Radio" which works well in social media with the hashtag. We looked around for some punk rock radio songs that we haven;t played yet and here are a few we came up with starting out with a brand new 63 Monroe song.

63 MONROE - Fukk the Radio
HARD ONS – Radio (Bad Taste)
RENNY WILSON - Radio Receiver (Mint)

THE RAMONES - Do You Remember Rock n Roll Radio (Sire)
RADIO BIRDMAN - Do The Pop (Trafalgar)
J CHURCH - Fascist Radio (Jade Tree)
NEW BOMB TURKS – Radiobeat (Head Dip)
ANTISEEN - Radio Ruined Groove (Rebel)
GOOD THROB - Tube Disaster

Chloe has been a key organizer behind the SHEXD programming and has really started to become a part of the hosting team on the show. We talked about some past shows and upoming plans for the next installment which should be before the holidays in December. 

X-RAY SPEX - I am a Cliché (EMI)
SANG - Tres Dents
SADICOS – Control (Silenzio Statico)
FIREWALKER - Don't Cross Me (Failure)

We also did a ton of special themed programming around current events, punk rock launches, song structures and so this set represents material from the Alone and Gone book feature, the Paris shootings, and the "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie" sound alike set we did in the past few months. But we listed off all kinds of scene report sets and current events sets and punk fest sets programmed over the last little while. 

UGLY MOTELS - Not For Me (Smash)
RIXE - Coups & Blessures (La Vida Es Un Mus)
BLACK FLAG - Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie (SST)

Some things we are working on include an interview with Tony Rettman who wrote "Why Be Something That You're Not" and "NYHC", an interview with Strangled from Edmonton, and an interview with Kathryn Martin the filmaker of "Piss On You" a film about the early Winnipeg punk scene. 

NEGATIVE APPROACH - Why Be Something That You’re Not (Touch ‘n Go)
STRANGLED – White Noise (Crude City)

We are very proud of the Notes Behind the Iron Curtain so we played some of the first punk bands from Serbia, Hungary and Cuba. 

PEKINSKA PATKA - Bela Sljiva (Jugton)
WYX - Lie Lie Lie (SPS)
ESKORIA - Asquerosa Cancion de Amor (Metadona)

We also played a ton of demos in the last six months so we featured two songs from two of those demos. 

HOWITZER - Concealed Violence (Self-Released)
GRUMP - Culture in Decline (Self-Released)
