Hey everybody!

It's the Fall for reals now. Leaves, dropping temperatures, air we can breathe again...hip hip hurray!

What better way to celebrate being Canadian in this most glorious time of year than to listen to great music while sipping hot apple cider. Or maybe dancing a bit to keep the chill off!

On Bedford and Grand ... The Besnard Lakes *
Carpet of the Sun ... Renaissance
Beat and The Pulse ... Austra *
Excellent Birds ... Laurie Anderson
White Wedding (Billy Idol cover) ... Doll *

There's Hope Yet ... Raised by Swans *
Psychic Seasons ... Quest For Fire *
Montreal ... Kaki King
Young Galaxy ... Body *
Baby's On Fire (cover of Brian Eno) ... 801

Wow! Loads of Canuck goodness!

(Time for the campfire and S'Mores)

Ruby Slippers September 18 7-8 pm

Hey everybody

Another week, more summer/fall. This is a weird one this year.
Never sure if it's beach music time or maybe more into the cozy folkie vibe.
Hence, there is a little of both. Oh and other stuff too.
See what you think

This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us ...Sparks 
My Secret ... Cities and Dust *
We Found Each other ... City and Colour * (it's all about the city)
Criminals ... The Blue Stones * (more from this band in upcoming weeks)
Free man In Paris ... Big Faith *
An Eye for an Eye ... Silvergun and Spleen *
Fighter ... Sumo Cyco *
Round and Round ... Strawbs (indulge me, OK? )
Light Of Love ... Cat (from 100 Psychedelic Trips compilation)
Amulet ... Chloe Charles *
Sleep ... Austra *
Fishage .... Beaters (out of San Diego)
Post ... Hanging from the Rafters
Bread and Circuses ... Stalins of Sound
Sunday Nights To Infinity ... Amity Beach *

There you have it. The thing about Fall is, besides Thanksgiving, Halloween is coming up.
Also the membership drive. More on that later.

Never a dull moment.

Thanks for listening
