Tonight you going to heard some of my more redneck music. Endless banjo and foot tapping classics from deep down in my music vault. I have been getting into Southern Gothic recently as well as a bunch of bluegrass and blues. This episode was outlined by the artist spotlight being The Dead South. A band from Canada with many banjo tunes in their library. This band is more well known than our other spotlights. They can be quite the cheeky fellows, especially in one of their sons called ‘The Manly Way’. I advise everyone to tune in if you still have the chance, I’m on until 10pm playing some more banjo tunes from independent artists.
Today is a mellow show. I have the feels for some killer folk music! So, in honor of the folk vibes that I’ve been loving the artist spotlight will be a folk artist that has some bluesy sounds as well! This artist is so new that he hasn’t even released an EP yet! Our artist spotlight is Harry Pane https://www.youtube.com/user/Hpane1 that’s his YouTube channel, you should check him out! On my ‘Take it or leave it’ segment I will be focusing on both Canadian here’s a link for the Canadian article http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/yukon-native-language-revitalization-yukon-first-nations-1.4014519 I will also be focusing on American issues, tune in for some original insight on politics and culture! I look forward to having your ears for the full two hours! Tune in at 8pm and stay until 10pm!
This week during my segment ‘This is that’ I discussed the idea of alternative facts. Next week on ‘This is that’ I will be discussing the confirmation of Jeff Sessions and the silencing of Elizabeth Warren in the Senate. For this week’s spotlight it was another British band for your ears. ‘The Holloways’ were our special, I advise everyone to check out their songs, ‘Jukebox Sunshine’ and my personal favorite, ‘Alcohol’. ‘The Holloways’ have an incredibly upbeat style and they kill indie rock in the unique way that only bands from Britain can. Regrettably, one of the founding members died of a heroin overdose in 2014. Too many musicians die too young. Hopefully I have your ears next week at 8pm!
Tonight’s show was all about the indie rock. I played some killer tunes and spoke about the shooting in Quebec and hatred in general. Tonight I spotlighted a band from the U.K. called ‘The Pigeon Detectives’ they have a very cool rock sound, combined with some killer lyrics that are very original to say the least. I recommend that everyone check out the video for ‘Romantic Type’ by The Pigeon Detectives, it is a classic. I also discovered and played a song that has become my anthem, it’s ‘Alcohol’ by ‘Holloways’. I for sure recommend that song to anyone! I hope you were able to tune in tonight and hear some of the awesome indie rock I was able to put out there!
Tonight’s artist spotlight will be Rolla Olak! He is another Canadian artist, and you guys know how much I love playing Canadian music. Rolla Olak has a very interesting sound, lots of guitar and some really stellar lyrics. Today on ‘Take It or Leave It’ I am going to be discussing the idea of pipelines and their relation to our government, DAPL Protesters, and conflicts of interest. I have had a crazy cold so my voice may be a bit scratchy. I think that you will enjoy my vibes of the day today, they have some funky new songs in them and one of my favorite new songs. If you want to check out some of Rolla Olak’s music, here is some links to his media! His website: http://rollaolak.com/ Bandcamp page: https://rollaolak.bandcamp.com Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/rollaolak/ and finally his Twitter: https://twitter.com/rollaolak?lang=en I really like the fact that the idea that some of his videos for his songs on YouTube is just a Lava Lamp doing its thing. Check me out at 8pm and stay until ten! If you’re doing some late night studying for the approaching midterms stay until 11pm for After Class!
Tonight The Darcy’s will be my Artist spotlight! Last week we had Marlon Chaplin on doing a debut of his two new singles, Fossils and Annabelle + Someone. In keeping with the theme of last weeks interview, The Darcy’s are Canadian! The Darcy’s are from Toronto, which is incredibly cool that I am able to do another artist from our backyard this week! The Darcy’s have a very interesting sound, very similar to popular Indie bands. I have no doubt that these guys will be on the billboard charts in no time. Tune in at our regular time to learn a little bit more about these guys from Toronto! I am continuing with our two new segments, the ‘Now Playing’ function on Twitter and the ‘Take It Or Leave It’ section where I comment on a current political subject. Tune in at 8pm and stay until 10pm for the whole show!
