Radio - Sunday, December 25th,2016

There is a tradition on EXD started with Pete Genest from Hits and Misses. When Pete left the city Dave Stevenson stepped up with his love for punk Christmas songs. Dave works throughout the year finding new songs and pairing songs in sets and giving everything thorough listens.I come across Christmas songs and send them to Dave but Dave curates and programs and ingests these songs.  This year is no exception to the no duplicates code we live by and there are a lot of great unheard of punk songs to show listeners. But the explanations behind the songs like Electric Umbrella. You need to listen to the show on the player above or download the show here.

Radio - Sunday, December 12th, 2016

Last night, I watched Toronto FC lose to the Seattle Sounders in the MLS Cup Final. Toronto played better and came closest to winning but the game was decided by penalty kicks, however a significant contributor to the lose was a past Toronto FC player by the name of Stefan Frei. Frei was a starting keeper and in the end he was treated terribly by MLSE. Frei made the save of the game that kept Toronto FC from winning and I wish I could say this is the first time that a former Toronto FC player has lead to this team's undoing but it is more often the norm. People in Toronto who follow pro sports teams from this city refer to a curse on the city's team. However we thought this team we could beat the curse. In our lose, I kept singing the line "This is as good as it ever gets", a line from Problem Children's "On the Air". So we started tonight's show with that very song. I participated in a podcast for Red Nation On-line called East Side Stand up where you can hear a more through analysis of the lose. Listen to tonight's radio show on the player below of download an MP3 file here.

Interestingly, Trump is voted "Person of the Year" by Time Magazine. In the cover of the piece the sub title is "President of the Divided States of America" which makes the Mood of Defiance song appropo. There is a good article on the cover by Haaretz.
