    •  What Wave Playlist May 4/2018. A show dedicated to the Victoria Tavern/SoHo/Bucket Of Blood which has a sign that says “Closed Until Further Notice” which is what we’ll call this episode. We’re playing only bands/artists that graced the ‘stage’ of the Victoria Tavern over the last 35 or so years.


      1. Uranus…..Around And Around….recorded at Kelly’s Boogie Parlour, another long gone London venue. Uranus played several times at the Victoria, with Ralph Dame on bass if I remember correctly.
      2. Uranus….Under My Thumb…. As above.
      3. Sci-Phonics….Play That Truck Drivin’ Tune….or something like that. Live recording from a long gone venue called The Road Apple, NE corner of York and Wellington 1/12/1986. The Sci-Phonics played the Victoria as a 3 piece and morphed into the long running 4 piece once John Charlton joined on the drums. Prior, stand up bass player Dave Zdryliuk banged on his bass a lot.
      4. Spiral Scratch….No Familiar Faces….from the Zulu Syndrome LP, and another band who morphed through a couple of lineup changes whilst doing gigs at The Victoria.
      5. The Hippies….Rock’n’Roll….live recording (1/16/1984) from another long gone venue, Fryfogles, which was on Dundas St right about where the library presently is. One of the posters for their gigs at the Victoria, had a show listed as a death date, presumably their final show.
      6. The Hippies….Neat Neat Neat… as above.
      7. Napalm Babys….Gun Control….from a live CD they released recorded in Ottawa. Lead singer Dave was supposedly involved in the alleged golden girl incident which actually made the local newspapers here…musta been a slow day and someone had a really good lawyer. If you were there, you know the truth.
      8. Dead Rabbits….I Don’t Care….from a live recording at the Cedar Lounge 2/9/1982, another venue that is long gone….we’ll be doing a special on The Cedar Lounge in August as it will be 40 years ago for the transformation from the Blue Boot Hotel, to the classier Cedar Lounge with its tacky cedar shingles on the walls.
      9. October Crisis…..Everyday….from a self titled CD from 1985 and these guys reform every now and again.
      10. 63 Monroe….Party Like A Rock Star…..from the Stunning CD and this band played the Victoria quite recently.
      11. Flying Squad….Fahrenheit 451….from their Come And Play cassette release and these guys played many a gig at the Victoria. I was informed that is not a cowbell on this recording, but a firebell and the drummer actually had 2 of them….firebells that is.
      12. Boy From Nowhere…Rack My Mind….from a live recording at the Town And Country (now 765 east) 10/5/2013. Boy From Nowhere did their first public appearance at the Victoria, after morphing from Blood Brothers and The Hippies.
      13. Ten Heads….Fading Out….from the Swimming and Singing CD and they played recently at the Victoria.
      14. The Mongrels….All Systems Go…..from a demo and the first time we saw this combo was at the Victoria many years ago.
      15. The Corndogs…..Lemon Head….from the Cliffhanger LP from 1987.
      16. Nosmo King Jr…..City Of Faith….from the CHRW London Underground compilation and according to bass player Lionel Lodge, the band was booked to play the Victoria and no showed!
      17. The Others….Ostrich Trick….from a split 7” with Dumb from 1995
      18. Deja Voodoo…. Big Scary Daddy….from a live recording at Key West, yet another long gone venue, from 10/22/1987. Deja Voodoo played downstairs at the Victoria twice. The first time 3 different parties (unbeknownst to each other) created posters for this gig. It worked, and people came out to see this band from Montreal. The second time through, they were staying at our place when we were offered What Wave zine from Al Cole and had to make the decision on whether to take it over or not. Tony and Gerard said to do it, and we did! There’s pics on FB of the band playing at the Victoria from that show and other pics outside our old apartment on Elmwood, with the band and the Edsel.
      19. Deja Voodoo….Swamp Of Love… as above. There are pics on FB of this gig at the Key West as well.
      20. Rockin’ Bobby Harris…..Yup Yup Boogie…..from the 2 Dollar Bill and The Pennies CD and Rockin’ Bobby is the real deal, an actualy late 50’s rockabilly guy who could still do it.
      21. Pink Cadillac Scat Cats…Half Way To Memphis….from the Rip It Up CD and one of the bands that  played one of our 5 Rockabilly Massacre Shows at the Victoria. Those were fun action packed nights in which we set some records at the bar.
      22. Duke Sedan and the Hi Tones……Real Cool Daddy….from their self titled and released CD.
      23. Nasty Rashes….Hot Rod Hearse….from a live to air recorded during a Radio WW many years ago.
      24. Bloodshot Bill….. Shick Shack….from the Git High Tonite CD on Transistor 66 Records.
      25. The Greasemarks….Greasemark Boogie….from a demo CD they sent us.
      26. Evil Farm Children…..Border Blaster….from the Evilling CD and from Ottawa.
      27. Running From Daylight…..Deadman’s Crossing….from the brand new Elvis Ain’t Dead Yet CD and they played the Victoria recently.
      28. Lonesome Ghost…..Haunted By God…..from a demo and they were part of my fave show ever at the Victoria….Along with Speaking Tongues and John Schooley, this was a triple bill that shoulda packed the joint. Unfortunately, it was raining like a son of a bitch that eve, and only the fortunate few ventured out to catch this killer bill. It was Schooley’s first ever show in Canada, and happened right here!
      29. Speaking Tongues….Run To My Door….from their self titled debut CD.
      30. John Schooley…..Drive You Faster….from his self titled LP on Voodoo Rhythm Records.
      31. Sheesham, Lotus and Son…..Darling Cora……from their Clear The Table CD. This was the last show we caught at the Victoria, earlier this year, and was the best show we’ve seen so far this year. 3 piece old timey band from the Kingston, Ontario area and they’ve got their act down just perfect, with lots of crowd interaction and fun times!


      There were lots more songs to play, some might get played next week. Huge thanx for the texts, emails, facebook messages, phone calls and Heys on this one!!! Another local venue bites the dust and we’ve all gotta get out there and support live bands and venues in this town!!


      Back again next week with more noise and loads of new material.


      You might be able to find an archived show here….I keep bugging management about the archives:

    • Radio What Wave Playlist April 27/2018


      1. Sugar Brown…..Looking For 2 O’Clock….new CD called Calling All Blues from this Toronto based blues combo that just came into CHRW. Way cool authentic sounding blues from this scholar of the blues whom we hope to get to London at some point.
      2. The Jack Cades…..Big Fish…from the brand new Freakbeat Fraternity release on Dirty Water Records from the UK. On the tubs is our pal Mole, long time drummer for such elite outfits as The Higher State, Embrooks and so many more in his long and dedicated career. Another new arrival at CHRW!
      3. Lawn….My Boy….from the Blood On The Tracks release from this New Orleans pop combo. Yet another new arrival here at CHRW!
      4. The Lawn….Reconsider Baby…from the Debussy Fields CD from 1992 and from Toronto. Had to play this due to the same names of the bands. This combo has Lonnie James on the tubs, a vet of so many cool Toronto outfits; Living Proof, Naugahyde 5 and lots more.
      5. Tuerto Loco….Nancy Sinatra….recorded live here on Radio WW back 5/12/2011. And these wackos are at the St Regis tonite!
      6. Fiends….Vacation….from the recent Easy Does It release, and from London Ontario.
      7. Vypers….Deep Save….from the Champion 100 10” that is about to be released and we yammered a quick one over the phone, as Vypers were in town last night at Call The Office. Any band with psych sounds that mentions 13th Floor Elevators and Spaceman 3 has their roots firmly planted on solid ground!
      8. Vypers….Reaper… as above. They mentioned working on a new full length with slightly slower but more ominous sounds.
      9. Dong Vegan….Bugs….from the He Job Sessions and they opened (and share gigs) with Vypers.
      10. No Pussyfooting…..Fake Wood and Chrome….from the brand new Pentagon Black 4 compilation and from Peterborough.
      11. Occasional Angels….Be There….from Ottawa and found this fine soul combo via the recent CBC awards thing.
      12. Ronnie Lee…..Dare To Be Different….from the Permanent New Wave comp and this goes out to our pal Sue who is not doing well. Rena and Sue were best friends through university and teacher’s college and both went out to the local clubs to catch the punk/new wave thing that was happening in the late 70’s/80’s. Sue was with Rena when I asked her out for the first time (at a Shakin’ Pyramids show at Fryfogles) and when I told Sue what I did (fix computers) she replied, ‘you don’t look Asian’ my introduction to her dry sarcastic humour. Well Rena and I have been together since, and found out recently, it was us that introduced Sue to her longtime hubby Paul….again at a punk rock show, and this time, at our usual hangout back then, The Cedar Lounge. This song sums up everything about those punk/new wave days and is from 1978.
      13. The Alleycats….Black Haired Girl…from the Sharp Cuts compilation. From about 1978 and Sue was into cats (still is) and has black hair…
      14. Ronnie Lee….Some Like It Hot….from the Permanent New Wave comp….
      15. The Fast….Kids Just Wanna Dance….from the Sharp Cuts comp and from about 1979. We did a lot of dancing back in those days and had a lotta fun. This one not only sums it up, but these guys played the Cedar Lounge back in about 1979. A pictures exists of the band on stage from the area of the entrance to the club….I’m trying to get my hands on this pic as it’s a rare full stage shot from the Cedar Lounge.
      16. Raunch Hands…Stomp It…from their 1984 debut 7” and the one that made me a fan. Remember writing to the address on the back of the single and getting a response from Michael Tchang and finally meeting the band at the Star Club back in 1985.  This RH set goes out to singer Michael Chandler.
      17. Raunch Hands….Spit It On The Floor….from the El Rauncho Grande EP from 1985 and there’s a lesson in this song.
      18. Raunch Hands….Ford…as above. Pictures are up on FB for Chandler and we’ve put lots from the Star Club shows and the band’s one appearance here in London Ontario at Bullwinkles from 1986.
      19. Hook Up….Greyhound To Graceland…from the Cruel Sounds CD on Transistor 66 Records.
      20. The Zellots….On The Dole…from the flexi and from about 1979.
      21. Teenage Head….Teenage Beer Drinkin’ Party….from the recent Fun Comes Fast CD and TH were in town recently at Call The Office.
      22. The Judys…..Sex and The Single Malt….from their debut CD and from Vancouver with our pal Pete Feend on the bass.
      23. Gus Cordovox…..Trashpickin’….from the You’re Soaking In It compilation from 1988 and features Philly and area bands. This track features Ben Vaughn on the telecaster. This show was going to feature a bunch of compilations, but life gets in the way and we have to respect the past to build a better future.
      24. Harry Manx….Foxy Lady…from the Wise and Otherwise CD and he is at the Aeolian Hall on Thursday night.
      25. Soul Jazz Orchestra….Holla Holla…from the Under Burning Skies CD and from Ottawa.
      26. Tuxedomoon….Dark Companion….from the Ralph compilation Frank Johnsons Favorites on Ralph Records and from 1981. Bought this when I was obsessed with the crazy sounds of The Residents and everything they were associated with. Lost interest in The Residents, but still like a lot of what Tuxedomoon did.
      27. Chrome….Anti Fade….from the Subterranean Underground compilation from 1979 on Ralph Records. First heard about Chrome via Greg Shaw’s ground shattering zine, Who Put The Bomp? as Chrome ran adverts for their releases in it. I correctly assumed that anything that was in Who Put The Bomp had to be in my collection as that zine really opened doors for me! Got to see Helios Creed from Chrome at Call The Office 4/15/1992 and he autographed some of my records back then. Live audio of that one exists according to my files.
      28. Sheesham and Lotus and Son….Ida Red…from their Clear The Table CD and from Kingston. Coincidentally, they are now in the other London.


      Ran outta time before tunes as per usual. Big Thanx to the Vypers for giving us a call on the road to London. And Thanx for all the messages, texts, phone calls and Heys!!


      There might be an archived show here:

      Back again next week and it looks like we’re going to be doing a special on the SOHO (for decades known as The Victoria Tavern) as it appears it has closed down. TONS of local and out of town bands have played that place over the years and we’ve put on many shows there as well.

      Another all London playlist as we’re deep into the week of celebrations/shows/events of The Jack Richardson Music Week here in London Ontario. We come to the climax on Sunday night at the awards ceremony at London Music Hall. Hope to see some of you there!

      But we started this week with a non-London interview, Son Of Dave, infamous one man blues band, who just happened to be playing at the London Music Club that eve.

      5. Larry Lee and the Leesures….Odd Man Out….from their self titled LP from around 1965. Rockabilly in 1965 was a step out of time as was this song. Coulda and maybe shoulda been covered by The Cramps, instead, the Black Holes covered it at live shows.

      8. Frankenstein 5….It’s A Cryin’ Shame….from the London Underground Dig Deeper CD from 1994. F5 were the only exclusive 60’s garage combo to come out of London. They appeared on a couple of WW cassettes and also released their own cassette, recorded right here at CHRW.
      9. Salmon Blaster….Chomalungma…from the London Underground 3 CD from 1995. Salmon Blaster are re-uniting for one show at Call The Office tonite as part of the Jack Richardson London Music week.

      15. UIC….How Deep Is Your Love….recorded live at Bullwinkles 2/14/1986 and goes out to bass player Dan Preszcator who passed away 2 weeks ago. Bullwinkles was also called Kellys Boogie Parlour, Hard Times, Salt Lounge and probably a couple other names. The building is still standing (with external support) so grab a picture while you can.
      16. The Hippies….How You Gonna Live….from the early 80’s. The picture sleeve for this one, as well as a TON of other London 7” records is on display at the Jack Richardson London Music Museum at 182 Dundas St, the old Nash Jewellers store front.

      Thanx to Son Of Dave for taking the time to call in. Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, FB messages and texts!! And all the kind words!! That’s what keeps us going!!!

      You can often find me at the Jack Richardson Music Musuem on Saturday afternoons, helping the curator, Rena get things done. There’s a few displays that will be of special interest to listeners of Radio WW and we just received some new stuff yesterday from the big band era. Johnny Downs was a HUGE influence to the local big band and jazz scene through his restaurant, The Latin Quarter.


      Back again next week with a bit more local stuff from the past and lots of new stuff!

    • March 30, 2018 8:03 PM CDT
    • Radio What Wave March 30/2018.  Dedicated to Dan Preszcator UIC Bass Guitarist


      This one goes out to long long time UIC bass player Dan Preszcator who passed away yesterday, way too young!! Dan was the quiet one and let his bass playing do his talking.  UIC had done a few reunion shows in the past 2 years, wowing long time and new fans alike and equaling if not bettering the band in its prime!! For Dan!


      1. UIC….2 + 2….from an It Came From Canada compilation and Dan really shines on this one!
      2. UIC….Blade In The Back….from Disgraceland , a cassette compilation that came with WW zine #15
      3. UIC….Who’ll Start The End….from Garunge, a cassette compilation that came with WW zine #14
      4. UIC….Honest Can’t Survive….from a demo supplied by Dave Dysart, he’s the guitarist who filled in for Ted in the reunion shows and has kept the band in line. We had Dave live on Radio WW sometime around when UIC did their only London reunion show in 2017. A show that many still talk about to this day.


      Right around this time Randall Pee Coltrane called in to talk about the Really Good Friday happening in Exeter (UIC’s hometown) and how the gathered crowd was shocked to hear about Dan. And then we got to talking a bit about how so many Exeter people were involved in the very early days of the London punk/new wave scene at the Cedar Lounge. Then we yammered about the big show at the St Regis, where Randall and The Rivieras, Boy From Nowhere, Myrtle Earle and a Gigi band were going to be playing on Saturday night.


      1. Boy From Nowhere….Wild In The Street….from a live recording from the Toys For Tots show from 2016. Recorded by The Nite Bat who has a show early every Monday morning here on CHRW.
      2. Randall and the Rivieras….All Work And No Play….from their self titled debut CD….2 members of The Verge and a Hippy.
      3. Randall Pee Coltrane….Let Your Freak Flag Fly….from his self titled debut CD.
      4. UIC…..Telephone….from a live recording the band supplied us from 3/16/1985 at Call The Office. Recorded by Wayne Fisher (former Napalm Baby). There is video of this show out there somewhere…..if anyone can track it down, please let me know as I’m the jackass up front by the stage dancing like a fool!  And the guy yelling really loudly on all of these tracks is Brian the Math Teacher, a regular at many cool events back then.
      5. UIC….Instro….some free form jazz and as above.
      6. UIC….No Fun… above.
      7. UIC….New Rose… as above.
      8. UIC….Let’s Dance On…. As above. And this one appeared on the Live In London cassette that came with WW zine #13.
      9. UIC….What I Want… as above. I sorta remember UIC doing another Victims song….Annette. Or was it 63 Monroe that did that one? Definitely a song we could not play on the radio.
      10. UIC….Crop Dusting…. As above.
      11. UIC….Shamrock Bang…. As above.
      12. UIC….I Got Nerve….as above and that ends our live from Call The Office 3/16/1985 portion of the show.
      13. UIC…..Anything At All….from the Wiseman Sessions CD…..recorded in 1988 with Bobby Wiseman, and didn’t see the light of day until 2001 when it was released in an extremely limited edition CD. Thanks to Yeah Right? Records for releasing this on vinyl last year! Pick it up at your fave local record shop.
      14. UIC….Lite It And Fly….. as above.
      15. UIC….Heartache….as above.
      16. UIC…..Pushed In To The Hole…. As above.
      17. UIC….Lock Jaw Bay…. As above and that completes our little tour of the Wiseman Sessions….remastered by Peter Moore (who won a Grammy last year, so he must know what he’s doing) who was a DJ here on CHRW back in 1981 and went under the name Simon Less.
      18. UIC….I’m Alive….from the Witches In Credible CD from 1993 and a big change for the sound of the band. Drummer Murray and guitarist Ted had exited to form the country rock combo, Positively Stompin’, who unfortunately were a step out of time or they could have been big.
      19. UIC….Parkdale…. as above and this one has the more psychedelic soul type of sound the band was moving in. This one has held up really well over the years.
      20. The Chickens…..Chicken Ride….This is basically UIC without Ted and with Ken Mikalauskas on guitar. This came out in 2000 and was a much more powerpop sound that UIC. Live they were totally amazing and so much fun to dance to! They went down to the states to compete in Little Steven’s Battle Of the Bands, finishing second, just behind Muck and The Mires.
      21. The Chickens….White Squirrel Town…. As above and about the legendary white squirrels that supposedly live in Exeter.
      22. The Chickens….Room On Fire….from the Bring It On CD from 2003 and the last release by The Chickens.
      23. The Chickens….Heart That Bleeds…. As above.
      24. UIC…..Our Garage…..from their first LP, Our Garage that came out in 1986 on Fringe Records.


      So many great memories with Dan and UIC over the 37 years or so that we saw them! From the first time we saw them in Centralia opening up for 63 Monroe to the last reunion show we saw them at here in London, they Always put on a great show!! And Dan was a key part of that sound! RIP Dan, we’re going to miss you!!!


      Thanx for all the phone calls, FB messages, emails and shout outs and hope you had as much fun as I did playing and listening to all the sounds of UIC over the years!

      Next week, we’re live to air at the Jack Richardson London Music Hall Of Fame in downtown London. It’s located in the old Nash Jewelers store at 182 Dundas St. Radio WW and Media Frenzy (the show right before us) will both be broadcasting live from the Museum and you are more than welcome to drop by and yammer live on the airwaves or just stand around and stare….or maybe dance if the mood strikes. Both shows are playing London combos exclusively as this is the start of our HUGE week of the Jack Richardson London Music Awards here in London! Check the Jack Richardson London Music Awards web site for all the details and I’ll be plugging many of the events during next week’s broadcast.

    • February 24, 2018 8:19 AM CST
    • Radio What Wave Playlist February 23/2018  All Black Show and Live to Air with After Funk


      This was an all Black show as February is Black History Month and CHRW has a full day of Black music coming up on Tuesday. We also had a surprise live to air with After Funk, as they were in the studio taping a live performance for the Top 30 Countdown Show that airs the next day, and they were playing live at Call The Office on the eve of this show.


      1. 6th Infantry Brigade of the Nigerian Army….Black And Proud….from a compilation CD called Black Man’s Cry, The Inspiration of Fela Kuti on Now Again Records.
      2. Wayne McGhie….Fire….from the Jamaica To Toronto compilation and from 1969. This was the start of our quick look at the late 60’s/early 70’s Toronto/Jamaican musical era. There were 4 key musicians, Wayne being one, the others The Mighty Pope, Jackie Mittoo (came from Jamaica in 1968 and had been a key player in the Jamaican reggae scene, being musical director and keyboard player for Sir Coxsone Dodd) and Leroy Sibbles (came from Jamaica in 1973 and was bass player for Sir Coxsone Dodd). These 4 upped the musical levels of the Toronto scene and put out some amazing music in that era!  There were many record shops in Toronto in this era that specialized in reggae, soul and Jamaican music. Walking into these shops was like going into another world!
      3. The Hitchikers….Mr Fortune….also from the Jamaica to Toronto compilation and features The Mighty Pope on the vocals.
      4. Leroy Sibbles….Express Yourself…from the Studio One Soul compilation CD on Soul Jazz Records. Again, prior to Leroy immigrating to Toronto and on the excellent Soul Jazz Records label that has put out TONS of cool soul, jazz, reggae and world music and is based in the UK.
      5. Jackie Mittoo…Get Up and Get It….from The Keyboard King Of Studio One double LP compilation that has been re-ished many times. This was prior to Jackie immigrating up to Toronto.
      6. Shirley Matthews….Big Town Boy….from the Made In Canada compilation and this song was a hit on Toronto’s CHUM AM back in 1963. Shirley was from the Windsor area and recorded another single or 2 before retiring to motherhood and adulthood.
      7. The Majestics….Medley…..from the ARC LP Instrumental R&B. Toronto soul group from 1967 and had a young Shawne Jackson in the band, long before her 1974 top 10 Just As Bad As You. The Majestics released a couple of LP’s, all on the ARC label, the same label that released the 60’s punk records around the same time.
      8. Jackie Shane….Shotgun….from the recent double LP with the booklet by Rob Bowman and recorded live in Toronto around 1967.
      9. Tarig Abubakar and the Afro Nubaians…..Hobey Laik….from the LP of the same name and came out in 1987. These guys used to play Sunfest quite regularly and had the crowds up and dancing a storm. They were never able to capture that live energy on any of their recordings and sadly, Tarig passed away in Sudan after a car accident many years ago.
      10. The Soul Motivators….Love Thing….from their 2015 CD Free To Believe and from Toronto. They’ve yet to come to London and I tried to convince them a couple years back as the closest they’ve been is This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton.
      11. Marcellus Wallace…Movin’ On Up…..from their self titled debut CD and our first London combo today. The band has moved to Toronto and is presently on hiatus while searching for new members.
      12. Danko Jones….Sexual Interlude….from the Garage Rock! A Collection of Lost Songs from 1996-1998.
      13. The Dice….Typical Lies….from their 12” EP from the late 70’s/early 80’s. At the time, they were a Toronto combo grouped in with the punk movement as they played The Cedar Lounge a couple of times here in London. Vocalist/guitarist Gary Lima was in charge of the MIA Program here at Fanshawe College and drummer Hayden Vialva has served time in many a London combo, current being blues based Double Clutch Band. Hayden and Gary are getting back together for a combo called Memphis Jam who are playing next weekend at Aeolian Hall and cover rock’n’roll standards and say they do a Dice song or 2.
      14. Bo Diddley…..Black Soul….from the Drive By CD which collects Bo’s funk recordings from 1970 to 1973 and a far cry from his hair cut and a shave two bits era.
      15. Muddy Waters…Tom Cat….from his Electric Mud LP from 1968 and produced by Marshall Chess. Not your regular Muddy blues sounds and Muddy’s least favourite recording.
      16. Rufus Thomas….The Dog…from a greatest hits compilation and from 1963 when Rufus was on Stax Records.
      17. After Funk…..Freak a Little Bit and live to air as After Funk just happened to be in the studio and it took no persuasion for the band to do a couple of songs live to air. Some lively funk goings on that hopefully had some listeners up and dancing! They played that eve at Call The Office along with London’s Mountain Of Wolves.
      18. After Funk…. As above, but don’t know the name of the song. When the show was over, the band was busy doing an interview that is supposed to air today.
      19. Andre Williams and The Sadies….Psycho….from the Red Dirt LP from 1999 and this song in its original incarnation used to get airplay on CHUM AM when I was a kid. Andre Williams played Call The Office about 15 or more years ago to about a dozen very appreciative fans.
      20. Black Joe Lewis….I Don’t Mind….from a 2005 7” on Shake Your Ass Records out of Italy.
      21. Magic Sam…..21 Days In Jail….from the compilation CD Devil’s Blues……Magic Sam was based in Chicago and passed away way too young.
      22. Barrence Whitfield and the Savages….Bloody Mary….from their Live Emulsified CD on Rounder Records. BW was at Call The Office a couple years back and put on a Killer show!
      23. Etta James….Tough Lover…..from a Greatest Hits compilation and originally came out in 1956.
      24. Louis Jordan….Caledonia….from the Rock’n’Roll Cd and originally recorded back in 1956. Features one of my fave guitar players, Mickey Baker who played countless sessions and appeared on many jazz records. He grew tired of the racial intolerance in the US and moved to France to carry on his career, passing away just a couple years back.
      25. Garland Jeffries….Wild In The Steets…from his 1977 LP Ghost Writer and released prior as a single. This was played on many FM stations back in the day. Garland worked with Lou Reed prior to the Velvet Underground and with John Cale after he left the VU.
      26. The Equals….Baby Come Back….from a 1968 7” and these guys were HUGE in the UK and did very little this side of the ocean.
      27. Jimmy Cliff….The Harder They Come….from the CD and movie of the same name and from 1972.
      28. James Brown…..I Don’t Mind….from his Live at the Apollo CD from 1962 and one of the best live LP’s ever!
      29. Peter Tosh…..Steppin’ Razor….from a Greatest Hits CD and from 1977.



      Out of time, but certainly not out of music. Huge Thanx to After Funk for playing an impromptu live to air session……had no idea they were going to be in the studio! And a Huge thanx for all the phone calls as the phone was ringing off the hook for a good part of the show and missed several calls. And Thanx for all the texts, emails, FB messages and Heys!!! Had an absolute Blast doing this show and hopefully we had some listeners up and dancing for this one.

      Back again next week and already have a few requests lined up.

    • Hello. We're new to these forums, but have a video that just came out today. Hope you enjoy!

    • April 4, 2018 1:47 PM CDT
    • So I've added a Links page to the Radio Mutation website. Put up a bunch of links to labels/stores, music blogs/webzines, and radio shows/podcasts. I honestly do NOT want to put up links to band sites, so please don't ask... that's a can of worms I'd really rather not open. I also don't want to link to Facebook pages or Twitter accounts. If you've got a Bandcamp store for your label, that's fine. So take a look at what's there and if you notice something glaringly missing, let me know and I'll try to include a link. There's also an email contact link on the page that I'd recommend using since I might not check back on this forum for responses to this discussion anytime soon. Thanks!
