Our host, GOBS, spent the past week doing a lot of thinking about the recent act of TERRORISM committed in our home city, LONDON, CANADA, along with the PANDEMIC, and came to the studio with something to say that he felt is different and worth while. Tonight, he uses the power of voice and great music to hopefully inspire HOPE. Gobs shares his perspective with the help of a gorgeous Egyptian folk song by JERUSALEM IN MY HEART, a mi...

PRIDE MONTH continues and how the hell do we match the inertia of LAST WEEK? By reaching out to our official POP CULTURE correspondent, NIKKI SIN, from THENIKKISIN.COM. This’ll be Nikki’s fourth appearance on the show and we love it when she comes through, because Nikki is a riot always. And it ain't no Zoom meeting tonight. Nikki’s with us inside our PLAYDEAD CULT Studio Space. Socially distanced of course, but still, how scan...

Tonight, we kick off PRIDE MONTH proper and we do it with YOU. Our host, GOBS, opens up the REQUEST LINE and plays your favourite PRIDE PARTY JAMS.  We wish we could just focus on the party, but things are not well here in Canada. Our INDIGENOUS FRIENDS AND FAM ARE HURTING. Anyone with a heart is hurting. And we’re still gonna be celebrating life tonight because at times like this, coming together as a community and celebrating is ...

Splatter Art Zombie Portrait that Scott made for Gobs This week is an important week. It’s PARAMEDIC WEEK here in Canada and you might not have known that because, for some reason, it’s not a week that we really celebrate, but we want to change that, because paramedics are true heroes of our society. They’re at almost every call. Every accident. Every bad thing that happens, paramedics are there. WHEN EVERYONE ELSE IS RUNNING AWAY ...

Tonight, we spend a full 90 minutes paying tribute to our host’s real life hero, TEVA HARRISON, on the anniversary of her passing. Every song that you’re going to hear was suggested by someone who loved Teva and all of these songs remind them of her. Teva was an acclaimed author, poet, illustrator, and cancer activist. She was also a Riot Grrrl, a rave DJ, specializing in the BREAKCORE genre, and maybe most importantly, Teva was tr...

We have officially unlocked the next phase of this program. Tonight, for the first time, we’re together for a full 90 minutes instead of the 1 hr program that you will find if you dive into the archive. To celebrate, we have such an amazing artist gracing us with her virtual presence. C...

Tonight we’re celebrating an anniversary. 10 years ago, our host, GOBS, published an article that he wrote for Toronto’s seminal harm reduction org, TRIP (Toronto Raver Info Project). The article was on THE RISE AND FALL OF THE TORONTO RAVE SCENE, which was one of the biggest rave scenes in the world during the 90s. It’s an amazing story but one that few people have ever put in the time to tell properly which is why this particular...

We have an amazing guest joining us tonight, via Zoom, from his home in Montreal. YVES JARVIS is on the show! If we had to describe his sound, we would say he makes “AVANTE-PSYCHEDELIC-FOLK-POP” but even that doesn’t quite describe it. He’s doing his own thing and it’s amazing and we love that. Yves writes, records, and mixes his music almost completely alone. He records predominantly outdoors, and each of his albums has a differen...

We broadcast from the province of Ontario, Canada, and only in Ontario we have a February holiday called FAMILY DAY. To celebrate, we’re breaking new ground by inviting an entire family on as guests. Two parents and 3 young kids who vlog their adventures on Youtube. They call themselves PERFECTLY NORMAL HUMANS and we think the content they’re creating is just phenomenal! So we invited them all on to chat over Zoom from their home s...

After last weeks monumental DRUMMER SPECIAL, our host, GOBS, is excited to take it easy and just drop some tunes. We’re only a month into 2021 and so much great music has already come out, so Gobs packs this episode with BRAND NEW TRACKS. For the first half, since last month was so heavy on Rock and Urban sounds, we get our groove on to some ELECTRONIC DANCE VIBES. In the second half, we get RANDOM together when we open the REQUEST...

So this is what 40 feels like. Tonight is the 40th episode of our weekly JOURNEY-BY-DJ FOR ADVENTUROUS LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS, and we think that calls for something SPECIAL. We’ve invited back the DRUMMERS from every band that has appeared on this show so far, and over the coarse of this episode, our host, GOBS, chats with 6 of them. Together, we celebrate the often under appreciated backbone of every band. We call this special “C...

Tonight, we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of this this weekly JOURNEY-BY-DJ FOR LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS, and we couldn’t have a more fitting person to spend this anniversary with because she’s such an important part of the show. ZAHRA HABIB is the Program Director at RADIO WESTERN. She’s also the LONDON MUSIC AWARDS 2020 DJ OF THE YEAR, and tonight, she showcases those award winning skills with an MF DOOM TRIBUTE SET, foc...

Our POP CULTURE correspondent is back on the show. NIKKI SIN from THENIKKISIN.COM. She’s got a NEW PODCAST to tell us about and a playlist of fresh jams to drop. Expect some raunchy HIP HOP and dirty ELECTRO in the first half, but then we’ve asked Nikki to have so...

Happy New Year! On our PREVIOUS EPISODE, our host, GOBS, got to say his piece on the music of 2020, so tonight, we wanted to open up the REQUEST LINE and play YOUR favourite tunes. The resulting JOURNEY-BY-DJ is one wildly eclectic set of songs. The only things they all share in common is that they were released in the past 365 and someone thought they were phenomenal. Considering the randomness of the selecting, it's amazing h...

Tonight, we run down the TOP 22 SONGS OF 2020. Why "22"? It just so happens that on this show, we pretty much always play 22 songs per episode and that formula has worked quite well for this first year on air. So after much deliberation, the thing to do became obvious. Our regular 22 song episode, but assembled into a COUNTDOWN of the most important tracks released in this past year. What makes a song important? Our host, G...
