streetz 104.7 FM who claim to be the ONLY Aboriginal Hip Hop station in the world. They are from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Right wing talk radio.

Yea? Care to back up that claim?

What, Polunatic isn't listening to talk radio?

OK, I misunderstood. This high falutin' techknarlogy really messes with my head.

I had a request for Butcher Pete by Roy Brown during the last show.

I'd never heard of the guy before, but he sounds like a lot of jump blues guys from the late 40s and early 50s, and recorded some purty famous tunes.  I went wild today and downloaded bit torrent technology to be able to listen to Good Rocking Tonight: the Best of Roy Brown, which I've been listening to since.

Hmm, so I downloaded the Vibrators' first record as well as "Punk's Not Dead" and "Troops of Tomorrow" by the Exploited today.

I just heard Peter Tosh and the Wailers singing "Get Up Stand Up" on nostalgie.fr.  Johnny Depp's missus is on the wire now, singing about Marylin and Johnny.

The internet is great.  I just thought of a line from a song from about 40 years ago, googled it, and up popped this:

 

Billy Joe Royal Cherry Hill Park.

I used to listen to this all the time on my transistor radio when I was supposed to be sleeping, but I haven't heard it since about 1969.

Here are some more from those days:

Marmalade Reflections of My Life

Shocking Blue Venus (This one's still well-known)

Edison Lighthouse Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes

The Flying Machine Smile a Little Smile For Me

The last two are kinda bubble-gummy, but what the heck, I was only 9 at the time.

Here's one from a couple of years later.  It still sounds great.

you maybe heard me other morning when i told oakley 'if Toronto's is, as youse guys say-  sold liberal red-  then 'WHY can't we lefty/liberals listen to a liberal talk radio show!' and oakley, well he laffed like it was silliest thing he ever hear before cutting me off! The WHOLE MEDIA IS liberal, he and the reactionarky callers claim! I later called about something else and mentioned the statistic that 36000 american police officers UNDER 40 years of age retire every year at full pension- in Canada that's 3600/year, and the 'dead weight' (an old british term for military officers who retired while still young) then spend all the tax funded free time calling rightwing talk radio complaining about HIGH TAXES! Boy did oakley and his screener yell at me for that one!

I listen to nostalgie.fr quite a bit.  Bonnie and Clyde is played fairly frequently there these days.

Boom Boom - I saw Mike McKenna and friends play the blues tonite, at a little bar on the Danforth called the Black Swan. They played several Mainline tunes along with the standards.

Thought you might get a kick of of knowing he's still at it, and still got it.

Now that is amazing - I first saw McKenna Mendelssohn Mainline in 1968 or so - that is, 42 years ago!  They were my favourite Canadian band - although I also liked King Biscuit Boy with Crowbar.Cool

I'm listening to duos over on Youtube (they take forever to download) by John Prine and Nanci Griffith - especially "Speed at the sound of loneliness".  Two of my favourite singers, ever, after Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.
