      Here's an hour's worth of the best:



    • April 14, 2019 9:47 PM CDT
    • The Mott The Hoople '74 show did not disappoint , except that they did'nt do "Moon Upstairs" , and "Violence " was reduced to a blip on the radar (Just like on the live album). They sounded great , and that bitch , Ian Hunter , got NO damned business looking as good as he does at 80 !

    • Radio What Wave Playlist April 5/2019


      1. Mack MacKenzie….It’s Not Worth It….from the recent Cua Tro De Los Angeles EP and Mack is on tour across North America right now.
      2. Lowdown Dirty Mojos…Lifers….from the brand new Scramin’ Hoodoo R’n’B release and feature former Londoner Paul Wootton on vocals and guitars. You may remember Paul from The Sinners, Spiral Scratch and Crawling King Snakes and now he’s in Hamilton. First London show May 3 at the Richmond.
      3. Dashboard Rattle….Fla Blue….from their recent debut release and from London.
      4. DOA….Whatcha Gonna Do….from the Something Better Change LP from about 1980 and goes out to our pooch, Joey Shithead who turned 2.
      5. Ten Heads…..You Clean Me Up…from their Swimming and Singing release and they played the Richmond last night.
      6. 63 Monroe….Drums Beat In The Background….from their brand new Faded Glory LP and they are playing next Friday at the Richmond.
      7. Running From Daylight….Breathing Fyre….from their Elvis Ain’t Dead Yet release and they will be playing with 63 Monroe next Friday along with local stunt artist and all around crazy Fenyxfyre whom this song is about.
      8. Imelda May…..Love Tattoo….from the 2007 release of the same name.
      9. Frankie and the Blue Angels….Little Sister….from a live recording at the long gone Kiplings  5/15/1988 and a request from The Dice who were in the studio during last week’s show. The Dice, along with John Welton were The Blue Angels.
      10. Bachman Turner Overdrive….Blue Collar….from their first LP from 1973 and features Londoner John B Young on uncredited tambourine.  John was inducted into the London Music Hall Of Fame a couple weeks back, and mentioned this to me. John was a roadie for BTO as well as their precursor, Brave Belt.
      11. Brave Belt….Another Way Out….from a 7” record.
      12. Brad Marino….Broken Clocks…from the brand new Extra Credit release and some mighty fine powerpop!
      13. Coaching For Sara…..She Cums In Waves….brand new download and goes out to Shane Sawyer as it was his birthday when this aired.
      14. MG & The Escorts….Someday Fool….from Nightmares From The Underworld, a compilation of 60’s Canpunk. This goes out to singer Graham Power who passed away last week.
      15. The Bad Beats….What You’re Trying To Say….from their recent Off The Hook release on Sound Flat Records out of Germany, but these youngsters are from Vancouver. Mighty fine 60’s style garagepunk that kinda reminds me of The Woggles out of Atlanta. You’ll be hearing lots more from this one!
      16. The Mongrels….All Systems Go….Usual first Sunday of the month at the Richmond for the Rock’n’Roll Rent Party.
      17. B52s….Lava….from their debut full length from 1979. Played this as The B52s announced they will no longer be touring. Can’t recall them ever playing here in London.
      18. John Hammond Jr…..’Til The Money Runs Out….from his Wicked Grin release and the start of our Firehall tribute set. The Firehall was a long running blue grass, blues, Americana type club based here in London. Similar to what CBGB’s started out as, but waaaaaayyy cleaner and quite a bit smaller. All the acts in this set played The Firehall and some have been involved in the reunions over the years.
      19. Ellen McIlwaine….Regretting Blues….from the Everybody Needs It release which features Jack Bruce on bass. When we saw Ellen at the Firehall it was a solo show, just here and her amazing guitar skills.
      20. Mainline…..Dictator….from the No Substitute release and features Mendelson Joe on vocals and guitari.
      21. Cub Koda….Bo Diddley… recording from the Firehall 4/17/1986. My first time seeing the Legendary Cub and he delivered the goods and more for the small but overly appreciative crowd that night! A Great showman and he could back it up his encyclopedic knowledge of music! Used to love reading his Goldmine columns as he knew what records I needed!
      22. Shadows Of Knight….Gospel Zone….from the Edsel Gloria re-issue.  Lead guitarist Joe Kelley used to play The Firehall on a somewhat regular basis and I stupidly never went to see him. And this is the end of our Firehall tribute set.
      23. Chocolate Watchband….Take A Ride….from their recent This Is My Voice release on Dirty Water Records.
      24. April March….Chick Habit….from her self titled release on SFTRI and the start of our female artists on compilation set….for all our regular GBG listeners out there!
      25. Fabienne Delsol….I’m Gonna Haunt You….from the Damaged Goods Cheap Sampler Volume 3. Damaged Goods is another of my fave labels as they have been re-ishing some of the stuff I missed in the 80’s and 90’s.
      26. Ludella Black…Love Pours Out From My Heart….as above.
      27. Lost Patrol….My Soul…from the Electric Carnival compilation on the Kinetic Vibes zine label out of France. Lost Patrol were from Windsor and played many of the clubs here in London in the mid 80’s to early 90’s and were featured on several What Wave releases.
      28. Tenement 13….Underworld…from the London Crawling cassette that came with What Wave zine 22 from 1996. London based and were previously known as The Hippies, under which they released a 7” record.
      29. Holly Golightly….Run Cold….from the Girl Groups Volume 1 compilation on Spinout Records.


      Out of time but certainly never out of tunes to play! This edition was dedicated to The Big Dog who would have been 89 on the day this was aired!


      Back again next week with more stuff!!

      12. Dick Dale….Miserlou….from a Greatest Hits comp and RIP to Dick, one of the originators of the surf guitar sound and certainly one that raised the bar for that genre. Touring was the only thing keeping Dick alive the last couple of years and he got to do it right up till the end.
      13. Dick Dale….Mr Eliminator…. As above.
      14. Dick Dale….The Wedge…. As above.

      11. The Monkees….She…from their More Of The Monkees release.
      12. The Monkees….Sweet Young Thing….from their first LP and this one was always a fave of mine when I bought this record over 50 years ago! The Monkees were a HUGE influence on myself and many of the same age group as we saw them on television every week and being a rock star sure looked like the life!
      13. The Monkees….Steppin’ Stone….from the More Of The Monkees release and way before this song became a staple of garage and punk combos.
      14. Catl….Baby You All Wrong…from the Bide My Time Till I Die release and they are coming to town Sunday March 10th at Call The Office with Bloodshot Bill. And then again Friday March 15th with 63 Monroe at the Richmond.
      15. Snakerattlers…Lose My Mind…from their recent Heads Will Roll release on Dirty Water Records and a 2 piece with the same arrangement as catl.
      16. A Bunch Of Jerks….70’s Euro Minge….from the brand new Rum Bar compilation release out of Boston. Proving once again, Boston has a major music scene and always has. We’ll be playing many more tracks from this release in upcoming shows.
      17. Frankie and the WitchFingers….Pleasure….from the recent ZAM release we received at the station.
      18. Corpse Grinders….Mental Moron…..from a Fan Club release back in the mid 80’s and this features Rick Rivetts, who passed last week. Rick was in the combo Actress before it became the New York Dolls and then played in a very early version of the band.
      19. The Brats….First Rock Star On The Moon….from the Max’s Kansas City release from 1977 and this was another of Rick Rivetts combos. Killer powerpop and easily my fave song on this compilation.
      20. Andy Butler….Gonna Be Your Man…from the recent Garage Heartbreak release. Andy goes garagepunk for a release…who knows what Andy has up his sleeve for his next release!
      21. UIC….You Drive Me Mad….from the recent re-ish of Our Garage and UIC have a live show coming up March 23rd in Toronto.
      22. Jackie Shane….Standup Straight and Tall….from the double LP release from last year, and Jackie passed away a little over a week ago. Elaine Banks (who did the Jackie Shane documentary on CBC Radio several years back) was finally able to interview Jackie for the first and only time a couple weeks ago. That interview is archived on the CBC site.
      23. Jackie Shane…Shot Gun….as above. And Jackie’s double LP did not win a Grammy unfortunately.
      24. Jackie Shane….New Way Of Love….as above.
      25. Washington Squares…..D Train….from their debut LP from 1987 and this goes out to Tom Goodkind who passed away this week. We got to see them twice here in London, once at Kiplings and then later at Call The Office.
      26. Washington Squares….You Can’t Kill Me… as above. This first release got a TON of airplay at WW HQ’s when it first came out and is still a fave to this day!
      27. Tina Peel…Knocking Down Guard Rails….from the 30 Seconds Over DC compilation from 1977. This set goes out to Skip Groff, one of the early pioneers getting the  Washington DC area up and going musically with the punk/new wave explosion. Skip had a record label (Limp, which is what this release is), did college radios, took pics, ran a record store for decades and kickstarted the scene. Huge Thanx to guys like Skip who work tirelessly behind the scenes!
      28. Jeff Dahl….Get Up And Dance….from the same release as above and it appears Jeff spend some time on the east coast prior to going west.
      29. Slickee Boys….Put A Bullet Through The Jukebox….from their compilation on Line Records out of Germany and another band that benefitted from Skip Groff’s hard work behind the scenes.
      30. Slickee Boys….When I Go To The Beach….from their Cybernetic Dreams Of Pi release and a fave song as well as band. Slickees were one of the first to embrace the 60’s garage/pop ethics way back in the late 60’s and paved the way for many. Found my Slickee Boys Fan Club card hidden in this record….I was number 199.
      31. Bob Bryden and Long Day Journey….What’s Your Bag….from the recent Abandoned Songs and Living Room Jams release. Bob was in Reign Ghost back in the late 60’s and also ran Star Records in Hamilton for many years.  Bob was the guy that helped get the Forgotten Rebels on Star Records and was producer (and aural genius behind the scenes) for their first long player.
      32. Long Day Journey…Balloon Ride…from the recent Music From A Bubble release and from Hamilton.
      33. Long Day Journey….Suburban Family Bein….as above.


      Ran out of time but never tunes! Big Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, facebook messages, Heys etc!!!

      Guess we had some signal issues toward the end of the show…as far as we could tell, there were no issues with the board and the issue may have been at the transmitter tower. Thanx to everyone for letting us know!

      Next week it’s International Women’s Day so an all female show next week.

    • February 24, 2019 7:42 PM CST
    • Radio What Wave Playlist February 22/2019. All Black Show as this is Black History Month


      1. Screaming Jay Hawkins….I Put A Spell On You….started with Screaming Jay’s best known song to get things rolling. From 1954!
      2. Rance Allen….Lying On The Truth….from a Stax Profiles release which came out in 1982, but this track is live and probably from the Wattstax Concert 1973.
      3. Rufus Thomas….Memphis Train….1967 release and from a Best Of Stax compilation.
      4. Sam And Dave….I Take What I Want….from the Stax Years compilation.
      5. Otis Redding….Shake….from 1965 and on the double LP of Otis’ Greatest Hits that came out in the early 70’s.
      6. Eddie Floyd…Raise Your Hand….a 1967 release and this and the above 4 songs were all released on Stax Records out of Memphis.
      7. Titus Turner….Build A Bridge Not A Wall….1961 recording and on his Sound Off release and should be played during these times.
      8. Nina Simone….Mississippi Goddam….from 1964 and on a Greatest Hits compilation.
      9. John Lee Hooker….Motor City Is Burning….1967 recording and on a Chess Greatest Hits compilation.
      10. Stevie Wonder….Living In The City….from the Innervisions release from 1973 and we played the full album length version.
      11. Last Poets….New York New York….from their 1970 self titled release and one of the first rap releases.
      12. Curtis Mayfield….If There’s A Hell Below….from a Curtis Greatest Hits and the album full length version.
      13. Bell Rays….Hole In The World…from their Let It Blast release from 1998.
      14. Gil Scott-Heron….The Revolution Will Not Be Televised….from the release of the same name and from 1971.
      15. The Impressions….Choice Of Colors…..from the Young Mods Forgotten Story from 1969.
      16. Marvin Gaye….What’s Going On?...from his Anthology release and from 1971.
      17. Cleo Page…..California Prison Farm….from a compilation called Going To California on JSP and this song was released in 1979.  Searching for more Cleo Page if anyone can help.
      18. Blind Willie Johnson….Dark Was The Night….from a release of the same name and from 1928. This song, along with many others were launched into space several years back. The idea being that if aliens find this and can listen to this they will get an idea what our music is like….
      19. Sister Rosetta Tharpe….I Shall Know Him….from her 1956 Gospel Train release and wasn’t the song I intended to play….if there were no screwups, it wouldn’t be a Radio WW!
      20. Phillips Specials….I’m A Soldier….a 1976 release on the compilation Fire In My Bones, an excellent compilation of gospel from 1944-2007. It’s on the Tompkins Square label and came out in 2009.
      21. Reverend Charlie Jackson….God’s Got It….from the Crypt release of the same name and recorded back in 1973.
      22. Muddy Waters….Tomcat….from Muddy’s least favourite release, 1968’s Electric Mud. Way different than any of Muddy’s other work, but a fave of mine.
      23. The Temptations….Psychedelic Shack…..from the Psychedelic Soul compilation and this is the album length version of the track from 1969.
      24. Bo Diddley….Elephant Man….1970 recording on the Drive By release.

      26. Tarig Abubakar and the Afro Nubians….Hobey Laik….from the release of the same name from 1997 and these guys used to play Sunfest fairly regularly. Their live shows here were incredible and none of their releases have captured that intensity. Tarig went home to Sudan and ended up dying in a traffic accident.
      27. Andre Williams….Psycho….from his 1999 Red Dirt release featuring The Sadies as his backup band.
      28. Pat Hare….I’m Gonna Murder My Baby….Sun recording from the early 50’s but what makes it scary is that Pat went out and did just that. He ended up spending the rest of his life in prison. Alcohol and Pat did not mix well.
      29. Howlin’ Wolf….Highway Man….another early Sun recording and it might be Pat Hare playing the guitar on this track.


      Out of time, certainly not tunes. Back again next week with tribs to Rick Rivets, Peter Tork and Jackie Shane and a ton of new releases!


      It’s always a load of fun doing these specials and if you have anything you’d like to hear a special on, don’t hesitated to drop a line.

      Thanx Tons for all the phone calls, emails, messages and Heys!!

    • Radio What Wave Playlist February 8/2019

      1. Chain and the Gang….Why Not…from the Best Of Crime Rock from a couple years ago. This wasn’t the track I had intended to start the show with, but it’s a good one anyways.
      2. The Rizdales….Honky Tonk Honeymoon….from their recent Lucky Enough release and has a mention of the Richmond, which is where they are playing today.
      3. 3 O’Clock Train….Bluer Than You….from the recent Cua Tro De Los Angeles release and the Train is scheduled at Fitzrays on March 6th.
      4. Flamin’ Groovies….City Lights….from their 1971 Teenage Head release and keeps us in a kind of country vibe for this set. As most of you know, this release was where Hamilton’s Teenage Head got their name.
      5. Sheesham and Lotus and Son…..Ida Red….from their 2018 Clear The Table Release. Sheesham is scheduled to play the Cuckoo’s Nest on Sunday, here in London.

      10. King Khan and the Shrines….On A Brass Bed….from their 2004 Mr Supernatural release. Around the time of this release, they played here at Call The Office and there were almost as many people on stage as in the sparse crowd. It was their first date of a North American tour and they absolutely floored me that night and made a fan for life!
      11. Jackie Shane…..Sticks and Stones….from her Any Other Way release from last year. This release is nominated for a Grammy in the historical release category. Also there’s an interview with Jackie on the CBC website, first interview in probably 50 years as Jackie went into seclusion after her star days in the Toronto soul scene. Similar to the Betty Page story in which she’s finally found after many decades of hiding.
      12. Jackie Shane….Any Other Way…. As above.
      13. Deadly Snakes….So Young And So Cruel….from their Porcella release from 2005. The only time I ever saw this combo, was at Call The Office and Greg Cartwright was in the band as he appeared on their 2001 release, I’m Not Your Soldier Anymore.
      14. Stance….Sweet Tooth….from their I Left Love Behind A Long Time Ago release from 2009. The band is from Halifax and did play a couple of shows here in London and we even had them as guests right here on Radio WW many years back.
      15. Andy Butler….Oh Heartbreak….from Andy’s brand new Garage Heartbreak release and a bit of a change from his usual guitar powerpop sounds. But as always, great sounding material and you’ll be hearing more of this one on Radio WW.
      16. Coaching For Sara….Receive….from their brand new download and from right here in London via Walkerton.
      17. Paris Street Rebels….I Don’t Wanna Die Young….brand new release at the station from this Scottish combo.

      19. TVD….I’d Kiss You Honey But You’re Standing On My Bottom Lip….from their Salvation Through Distraction release from 2016 and they were playing the evening this show aired.
      20. Bloodshot Bill and Shannon….True….from a recent 7” and Bloodshot Bill plays Call The Office on March 10th with usual headliners catl opening up. This one’s gonna be amazing!!
      21. Nina Simone….Buck….from her Sings The Blues release from 1967.
      22. Dashboard Rattle…Fla Blues….from their brand new self titled release and from right here in London Ontario. They sold out the London Music Club at their CD release party last weekend and the CD will be in stores momentarily.
      23. Evan Johns and the H Bombs….Vacation….from their 1982 Rollin’ Through The Night release on Alternative Tentacles as label head Jello Biafra was a big fan of this combo. We got to see them a few times, Oshawa and Hamilton, but they never did get here to play.
      24. Randall Pee Coltrane….Fort Likkerdale….from their recent Fort Likkerdale release.
      25. Headless Horsemen…..Bitter Heart….from their 1987 Can’t Help But Shake release and they played here in London at Key West prior to the release of this one.

      26. The Midways….Little GT…from their 2003 Pay More and Get A Good Seat release and they were from Toronto.
      27. Thee Headcoatees…..Louis Riel…from their Have Love Will Travel and it’s always cool when a UK combo sings about a significant historical event that happened here in Canada.
      28. The Minstrels….Rock’n’Roll Star….from their 1997 West Coast Time Trippers release. Originally from Quebec City, this combo moved around a fair bit and had their first release on What Wave Records back in 1989.
      29. The Bell Rays….Blues For Godzilla….from their 1993  Let It Blast release.
      30. American Flamewhip….Gasoline….from their Fingertight release from 2006 and features J-Rod on vocals and guitar. She went on to the Angry Dragons, one of the best garage combos to ever come out of Winnipeg.
      31. Karen Monster….Kill…from the Necessary Evil release from 1993 and a disciple of the Johnny Thunders school of cool.
      32. Etta James…..Tough Lover….from a Greatest Hits comp and originally released back in 1956.


      Out of time, but certainly not tunes! Big Thanx for all the emails, messages, texts, phone calls and Heys!!! That’s what makes it all worthwhile!

      Hi all! I'm doing a blog called Rocking The Garage - It's primarily for raw music such as garage punk, punk, garage rock, surf rock, psych, rockabilly, and R&B. There you will find different styles of punk, lots of hardcore (not much pop-punk) and of course garage punk. The blog is supplemented with surf rock, rockabilly and to a lesser extent even a bit of wild R&B/blues. I post a lot of new music/artists (both from YouTube & Bandcamp). You can check out the Rocking The Garage blog from this link:
