Tuesday night is 45 rpm night

Ken Stower, CIUT’s terrific program director, has invited me back to the Vinyl From the CIUT Crypt show this Tuesday.

The University of Toronto radio station has lovely new headquarters in Hart House, occupying several rooms of the old Prefect’s Office. The only problem is that The Crypt, a vast library of records formerly stored in the old CIUT building’s basement, is only partially unpacked. So instead of playing records from The Crypt, I will be spinning a bunch of my own singles.

There are a lot of teenage kicks planned: The first records I bought at Music World, jukebox discards my Mom (who grew up in Alberta hotels) passed along to me, and a few New Wave records my wife Christine tracked down while as a small town Alberta teenager herself. I’m also going to spin some vintage punk and some weird children’s records. It will be a fun night, with a lot of hooks and maybe a bit too much vocoder.

Tuesday, December 14, 8 to 10 p.m.
89.5 in Toronto

I attended the rambunctious opening on Thursday and wholesale mlb jerseys thought it was the event of cheap jerseys the season (so far). Plenty of Stone’s interesting Escort creative people to chat with, and a bar featuring Toronto’s beer of the moment, the now-bottled Duggan’s No. 9.

Thanks to organizer Steve Wilson for allowing me to for submit a late entry into the show. It Right is skating a treat to share wholesale nfl jerseys the walls Варикоцеле with such a talented group Things of artists. Shown above is my contribution, Suburban Krampus (Krampus in Brampton).
