Ruby Slippers Playlist for August 30 7-8 pm

Hey everybody!

I am taking time out from grumbling about a certain coffee chain to post the playlist for this, the Labour Day weekend show.  The weekend doesn't promise to be much, weather wise, but that's all the more reason to support your community radio station on the go to inside activities or just chillaxing at home.

So without further ado, here it is, my friends.

(Theme from) WKRP in Cincinnati....Various artists
Alarm Clock (new remix by M. Valenz and Krystal Love B)...Septembryo
Miracle Drug...A.C. Newman
Hey Little Darling...Stark Naked and the Fleshtones
Letterbox...They Might Be Giants  (I had this album on cassette and it was always in the car)
They Say...Roman Candle (new)
Last Star...Two Hours Traffic
At War With The Sun...The Big Pink
None But Shining Hours...The Books
Does Anyone Love Me Now?...Blue Roses
Blow Away...Kate Bush
Delia and the Sculptor...Elise Epp

Faster...The Tourist Company
Pee-Wee's Playhouse...Cyndi Lauper  (OK so I have had a bit of an inner child moment)

Be careful on the holiday, want to see you next week.
And as always, thanks for listening.

Ruby Slippers for August 23 7-8 pm

Hey everybody,

I'm back, live and in person this week.  Mind you, with the spike in temperatures, there has been more time than usual spent in the dark cool recesses of the office listening to music and watching amazing DVDs.  For example, the concert film of Peter Gabriel's 2002-2003 "Growing Up" tour was nothing short of mezmerizing. If you have a chance, check it out.  I know you won't be disappointed.

In Toronto, it's available from the Toronto Public Library, but is, no doubt, in most quality DVD shops.

So on with this week's playlist

 Splash...Joy Classic
 Way Way Out...Spiral Beach
 Cherry...Will Black and Velvet Revolver 
 Take Me Back...Fast Romantics
 Ancient Kids...Bravestation
 I Don't Remember...Peter Gabriel
 Afraid of Heights...Waaves featuring Jenny Lewis
 Gonna Let My Soul Catch My Body...Over The Rhine
 Clap Hands...Tom Waits  (another good DVD "Tom Waits: Second Hand Stories")
 Dance Ghost...Helado Negro
 Red Lights...Thee Acquainted (from Moonstone, Ontario)
 Beaches...Young Empires
 Have You Seen In Your Dreams...Miracle Fortress
 Beach Dream...Jets Overhead
 New Constellation...Toad The Wet Sprocket

 That's it for this week. See you Friday, and as always, thanks for listening.

Back from a very busy weekend, you know the travel/music/work catch up stuff, so of course the way to relax is to kick back and listen to some tunage as soon as one hits the front door.

Well, one thing led to another...and before I knew it, the playlist just kind of happened.

So, here it is, in it's first draft glory.

A Pain That I'm Used To (Jacques Lu Cont Remix)....Depeche Mode (damn! this album has                
                                                                                      gotten under my skin)
