Radio - Sunday, November 18th, 2018

This week was our bi-annual fundraising show. Thanks to everyone who pitched in with coming in to the station, answering phone, donating prizes and donating cash to CIUT. You can still donate on-line and thanks to so many who have been doing that after the fact through We start out the last few drives with a game of name that tune of punk bands doing ska-ish covers. James St. Bass knew it and stayed mum, but James Brown got stumped again. Download the show here or listen on the player above.


So the next song is for Steve Kurzell who passed away last week. Steve Milo from Sudden Impact wrote us about Steve's passing and asked for us to play "Guns and Children" because the song sticks in your head and is super relevant with the gun climate in the U.S. Sadly still relevant. 

THE YOUNG LIONS – Guns and Children (Schizophrenic)
URBAN WASTE - Wasted Life 
ADOLESCENTS - Word Attack (Frontier)

Lots of people from the golden generation of hardcore are passing away. And recently a book about our first wave of Toronto hardcore came out called “Tomorrow is Too Late”. Derek Emerson and Fran Grasso came in to talk to us about the book and how it came together? Here is a set of bands that are in the book.

MICROEDGE - United We Skate (Self-Released)
YOUITH YOUTH YOUTH - Civil Disobedience (Self-Released)
DIRECT ACTION - 19 A.D. 4 (Self-Released)

So a good friend of mine, Spencer Mack, made these Fratricide shirts and he gave me a whack of them to give away for fundraising. Spencer used to do a radio show up at CHRY called Apocalypse Now so he knows what it is like for fundraising. Here is what Fratricide sound like starting with the song that inspired the shirt design.

FRATRICIDE – Rip Wide the Sky (Schizophrenic / Ugly Pop)
HONG KONG BLONDE - Blind Faith (Self-Released)
CHRIST AIR – Faceplant (Self-Released)

JIMMY VAPID, a long time listener and all round great dude who is known for playing in a load of bands principally the VAPIDS and has recorded countless bands and sent many of them our way to do things for the station (from the ROCKET REDUCERS to TV FREAKS to FLESH RAG, he has pledged and ponied up two copies of his latest release called “Night Moves”.

Shawna and Jamie from Artificial Dissemination came in to help answer phones, but we're not going to leave them out there so we had them come in and talk about what has been happening with the band and to give away copies of their latest ep "Big Brother and the Dick Heads".

ARTIFICIAL DISSEMINATION - U.R.R. Superheroes (Self-Released)
