Ruby Slippers May 19 7-8 pm

Hey everybody!

Thanks so much for your support during the membership week and the show.
I find it hard to reach out for help. It means a lot to have you step forward and keep this place and this show on the air.

I am sorry to say that Bestival has pulled out of Toronto this year as well as a number of other music festivals simply because of funding. HOWEVER, we here at the station will continue to fly the music flag each and every week. Toronto IS a music city and we will never forget that.

Never, ever.

So here goes.

Electric Avenue (Eddie Grant cover) ... Woodhands * (never gets old)
You Get What You Give ... New Radicals (a thank you to our supporters)
Wicket Youth ... Sego
Golden Years ... The Russian Futurists *
Empty Room ... Arcade Fire *
Under The Knife ... The Rural Alberta Advantage *
Noah ... Katey Morley * (NEW)
The Magician ... Secession
Grand Mal Seizure ... Shattervox *
Change My Ways ... Headstones *
Jumpin Jack ... Aretha Franklin (comfort for the soul)
Bedroom Music (Basement Love remix) ... Bloody Five *
Love Song ... The Cure
Years Slip Away ... Dream Aria *
Hijacked ... Run With the Kittens *

Notice all the Cancon (*) We got it going on, baby!

Thanks for listening
