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.
