Hidden Gems

We got Dutch, we got German, we got French, we got Cascadian. This week on The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour we hear stuff that sounds industrial, experimental, instrumental, sentimental and all other manner of mentals. Like a potent little garlic clove, I’ve planted my favourite song from KMVP’s new record On The Cusp. If you get your grubby paws on a copy of this limited release, you are sure to garner hella cool points (which is the nourishment of every vinyl collector, let’s be honest).

Please dont forget that CHLY is listener-funded and the hosts are volunteers. Listener-funded means that since we don’t take major media conglomerate money, we aren’t beholden to supporting a consumer-capitalist narrative like all the other radio stations in this area are.

Every now and then, we ask you to pitch in some dollars so we can keep bringing you the independent content a well-informed public deserves.

We cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independent music, critical-thought, and unbiased reporting. This arrives to you for free through financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY! Please consider setting up a small monthly gift at chly.ca/donate

Apples, Mulch, and Wood Smoke
