Special Variety: PFR & TV Buff Radio

Last week all the programmers down at CHLY tried their darndest to raise $20,000. Unfortunately, we’ve still got $5000 to go before meeting the minimum it will take to ensure community access radio continues to grow in Nanaimo. Every Thursday at noon, I co-host a show with Kevin M. called People First Radio (you can find the MP3’s if you click on the radio tab along the top of this page)

Here is a conversation between Kevin and I about media consolidation. Otherwise known as “The Reason CHLY Needs That Money”


Here is the MP3

Fast forward a week, and you’ll get to todays episode of the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour. This first part is a short piece of music followed by some events coming up presented by Jerry (12 mins)

SSVH October 10th 2012

For a show I didn’t plan whatsoever, this one turned out to be pretty darn okay! That is, except for the technical glitches. And I got free juice outta the deal compliments of DJ All Good who incidentally brought his D-cell battery-powered turntable and industrial grade juicer! Life is good. Pardon me, it’s All Good.

I started off the show today with a longish classical composition. One of my favourite pieces of music ever! Piano Concerto no. 2 composed by Shostakovich in 1957 for his son. After that, Jerry fills us in on some happnins and we take a call-in from someone who loves Elvis.(17 mins)

The second part of the show got a little wylie with tons of music all over the place! (25 mins)

DJ All Good brings me juice and plays you some dusty 45’s! It was a great time! (15 mins)

Thanks, Spike. I quite appreciate your use of “fuck”. For the remainder of this post, we’re going to honour the F word in thanks to my vulgar fan.

Our first segment starts and ends with some flavourful music items, with some weather and event updates in between. If you’re reading this, and the date is September 26th, 2012 the following clip is relevant as fuck.

 

Next segment features an interview from two of four parts The Jezabels! Beautiful ladies, beautiful talent, polite conversation, a good fucking time.

 

“Ashta here” again with another interview in this clip. This time from Vancouver local Dan Magnana man um. The man with a tounge twister of a name. MANGAN!!  Maingin? MAN gun. I botched it. Fuck.

 

This last segment features some chunes ripped off The Oracle of Reggie Watts fucking killing it. Then me and him cuddled up to an air conditoner in his trailer and talked about stuff. The whole shit ends with a couple yummy instro tracks

 

TUNE IN NEXT WEEK!  Who knows that kind of mish mash will happen! AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
