Radio - Sunday, January 29th, 2017

Mary Tyler Moore passed away this past week. Although she’s not a punk she did represent a modern independent woman in the work world. The show took place in Minneapolis and Husker Du covered the theme song on their “Makes No Sense At All” ep in the mid-80’s. The song was like an unofficial anthem for Minneapolis, which is why it was so appropriate for a band from them to cover the song. With all the tributes to Mary Tyler Moore this week I found myself thinking about this cover.

HUSKER DU - Love is All Around (SST)

This coming Sunday at the Garrison is a benefit for Freddie Pompeii, a guy we are trying to keep alive. Freddie has been diagnosed with cancer and we all know that medical bills are more expensive in the States. So a bunch of his friends who make up the first wave of the Toronto punk scene are getting together to play a show and we are going to start off with a few of them, starting off with Freddie’s first punk band the VILETONES. This is “Danger Boy”.

Alex Kress is a photographer from Toronto by way of Edmonton who put out a great new photo book on the Toronto punk scene called “Feeding Time: Split Seconds in Toronto Punk – 2015-2016”. We spoke with Alex a few weeks back about the book. We start off with the namesake for the book.
