Hey everybody!

This is our last show for January. Can't believe we got through this month in one piece and have had loads of interesting new music to boot!

Well, here it is, this week's playlist. There is a set from some very talented Canadian artists who will be in Toronto performing together in February. And of course there are some others who are new to me as well as the old favs.

There's even some, dare I say it, disco!


This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us ...Sparks (LOL the devil made me do it)
How to Look Important in Public ... Spectre Hearts *
Donnie the Disco Commie ... The Spandettes *
We Are See Thorough ... Jane Vain and the Dark Matter *

Looking at this list, I have no idea how it happened.

Hey everybody!

OMG it's Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious? I could do the obvious and play some Stevie Wonder tonight but really? Given all that has gone on in the world, who's afraid of a little old number. Just remember not to go under a ladder or let a black cat cross in front of you, and hey! it's all good.

So here is the decidedly non spooky playlist. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.

Goodbye ... Eddie Vedder
Ascending ... Jupiter Hollow *
Not Be Alright ... Mary Margaret O'Hara *
Monkeys Uptown ... Iron and Wine (won't lie, loved Kiss Each Other Clean LP)
Bird On a Ladder ... The Soles (also loved Anodos Kathodos) *
Just The Same  But Brand New ... St. Vincent
Coming On Strong ... Jane's Party *
Breaking It Up ... Lykke Li
Cabin Fever ... The Sulks *
Agent Zero ... Arkells *
Reindeer (cover of The Knife) ... Lily Fawn * (will play more by her and Hank Pine next week)
Needles In The Camel's Eye ... Brian Eno
More Than Friends ... Secret Broadcast *
X Ray Cat ... SkyBurnsRed

Ambitious? Hells ya.

Thanks for listening. Be safe out there.
