Facebag

The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour is a one-hour anything-goes festival of sound-good. Every Wednesday morning for 10 years, CHLY 101.7FM listeners in over 40 coastal communities have been subject to the audiocratic whims of local weirdo, Ashta. From 8-9am, she privately relishes the technical reality that terrestrial radio waves saturate a portion of the Earth’s surface with frequencies of her choosing.

This week is no different. Only she’s asking you to follow the @ssvhradio account on Instagram

Independent Woman About the World

CHLY 101.7FM is like your badass next-door neighbour who unabashedly plays their music too loud and who you refer to in times of crises for advice. You switch to it when the overbearing snarky commercials of the other radio stations become too much to handle. It is at times your sonic refuge, and at other times a quaint slice of your community you can tip your head to.

The truth of the matter is that CHLY doesn’t suckle at the commercial radio teat to bolster its survival. It’s an independent woman about the world, making the ends meet where she can! Unsullied and raw, she tells it like it is, because she answers to No Man. Her health and survival depend on donations and meager levies.

In all seriousness: we cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independent, critical-thinking views and reporting through a financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY. Only you can prevent an extinction, by ponying up a tiny bit every month. Spend the 5 minutes to sign up for an automatic monthly donation here.

Good as Gold

I posted a few weeks ago about how I create the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour. I said “I spend thousands of hours making this radio show for you ungrateful plebs, and the least you could do is give the radio station some money!” or something. Maybe my recollection is not so kind, but that was the gist. This week (like every week) the music is good, and I dont feel the need to explain myself.

This is the file which aired on CHLY 101.7FM on Wednesday September 22nd 2021.

Trillions of living beings were awash in the invisible radio waves of these songs. I’m not over exaggerating. It’s literally how terrestrial radio works. The invisible frequency waves were riding along on the ferry. They were in your hair. They were mingling with the dust under your bed. The radio waves slid along the skins of the J Pod orcas as they swam in the cold sea. This was the vibe:

  • Wood Goss & Secret Bad Boy, Black Winged Stilt
  • Nico – These Days
  • Daniel Johnston – True Love Will Find You in the End
  • The Concretes – Miss You
  • Jaakko Eino Kalevi – Hush Down
