Ruby Slippers February 10th Valentine Show 7-8 pm



Hey everybody,

In a few days it will be another year gone by and Valentine's Day will be upon us.

This is a day not only for acknowledging that special person (or persons) in our lives but also to remember that in the big picture, there is enough love for everybody.

I am lucky to have a special guest host tonight, Mark Tara, host of Rainbow Country here on CIUT.
He is a musician, radio celeb, all around lovely person and I suspect an incurable romantic.

The list here isn't necessarily in order as we will be winging it but I will endeavour to put it to rights after the show.

Mark's songs (with interview clips, bonus!):  *** Played all of these ***
Lorraine Segato...Rise Up *
Carole Pope ... High School Confidential *
Ashley MacIsaac ... Hubert's Story *
Roberta Flack ... The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Carol B's songs:
Sugar, Sugar ... The Archies (from Greg to Suzy) 
Infinite Love without Fulfillment ... Grimes* 
Lullaby Love ... Justin Timberlake vs. The Cure
What You Call Love Is A Lie ... The High Dials *
Love and a 45 ... Eve Hell and the Razors * Played
Tainted Love ... My Brightest Diamond Played
Love Myself ... parker Bombshell * Played
How Can I Ease The Pain ... Lisa Fischer
Torch Song ... Todd Rundgren (my heart song always) (hankie please

Remember to tell those who matter that you love them.
Thanks for listening.

Ruby Slippers January 13, 2016 7-8 pm

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.
