    • Radio What Wave Playlist November 17/2017


      1. Randall and the Rivieras….Heartbreak and Sorrow….from their recently released CD and the release party is coming up next Saturday at the St Regis. We’ve got singer/guitarist Pete Dekoker coming in next week to talk about the band, the CD release party and we’ll probably ask a few questions about his almost 40 year career in the London music scene! Any questions for Pete, just send them to the Radio WW facebook page.
      2. The Zellots….Let’s Play House….from their just released flexi disk of 1978/9 recordings. We had Jane Colligan, bass player on a few weeks back to talk about this release.
      3. The Demics….Factories…..1978 live recording from the Cedar Lounge. First set of this show was all combos that played the Cedar Lounge, London’s home of punk rock and was at the north west corner of King and Talbot.
      4. Forgotten Rebels….Save The Last Dance For Me…live recording from the Cedar Lounge 3/13/1982 and supplied by ace photog Reg Quinton. And the Forgotten Rebels play Call The Office tonight, Saturday November 25th.
      5. 63 Monroe….Hijack Victim…..from the LP of the same name that came out on Rave Up Records from Italy. Only band from London Ontario to have a release on the infamous Rave Up label so far….And next week’s guest is Pete Dekoker who still plays bass for 63 Monroe.
      6. Certain General….Hello My God…..from the Holiday Of Love EP from 1982 and the end of our bands that played the Cedar set. Certain General were from NYC (they do reunion shows every now and then, including one recently) and included London Ontario drummer Marcy Saddy, formerly of the B Girls and many London bands. They played a wedding party at the Cedar in August of 1981 and blew a lot of minds in the process!
      7. Jackie Mitto…..Henry The Great….from his brand new The Keyboard King At Studio One double LP on Universal Sound imprint.  Here’s a guy that was at the beginnings of reggae music, ska music, keyboard whiz kid and phenomenally talented. He left his home country of Jamaica and settled in Toronto in the late 60’s and was highly influential in the soul/reggae scene there. He died way too young in 1990.
      8. Louis Tillett….Buzzard Luck….from the brand new download called To Ride A Dead Pony.  Louis was in the influential early 80’s combo Wet Taxis from Australia and has produced a ton of work since! The downloads are somewhat of an overview of a musical career that has moved in many directions, always maintaining a high level of quality. This particular track is more soul/funk oriented and fit quite nicely in this little set.
      9. Mandala…..Mellow Carmello Palumbo….from their 1968 LP Soul Crusade and goes out to drummer Penti/Whitey Glan who passed away last week. Penti moved to Toronto from his homeland of Finland and started in bands from the early 60’s on. He’s recorded with Alice Cooper, Bette Midler, John Kay, Klaatu, David Wilcox and….
      10. Lou Reed… Sweet Jane…..from the Rock’n’Roll Animal Lp from 1974 and my initial introduction to Lou Reed all those years ago! Upon hearing this for the first time, I was blown away by this heavy mix of jazz, rock and pure NYC decadence that helped bring in the punk scene that was awakening under the mire. This live LP also features the guitar wrangler Dick Wagner and Toronto based bass wizard Prakash John amongst others!
      11. Suffer Machine…..Suffer Machine….from their 1986 LP Deprogram and from London Ontario.
      12. Sheep Look Up…..Civil Disobedience….from their self released cassette from about 1982 and re-released on the cassette that came with What Wave Zine 24. SLU were inducted into the Jack Richardson London Music Hall Of Fame last year and were one of many London Ontario combos that should have made it…
      13. Lollipop Shop…..You Must Be A Witch…from their only Lp from about 1967 and features a young Fred Cole on lead vocals. Fred passed away last week and this is the start of our trib to a man that kept his vision and played some amazing music in his career. Long time accomplice/wife Toody was with him for almost all his journey, being the only grandparents on the punk rock touring circuit.
      14. Dead Moon….Black September….from the 1989 7” on Tombstone Records (Fred and Toody’s label). Dead Moon released many many records over their career, many being released in Europe and North America. They played London only one time, at Call The Office many years back.
      15. The Rats….Defiance….from their 1981 Lp Intermittent Signals and features Toody on vocals. She was the featured vocalist on a few Dead Moon tracks as well as the long time bass player for many of Fred’s bands.
      16. The Sadies….Black Sheep….from their Tales Of The Rat Fink release and finishes our trib to Fred Cole.
      17. The Sadies….Another Year Again….from the Darker Circles Lp from 2010 and features the line ‘growing old is always hardest on the outcast’ which rings so true!
      18. The Sadies….Pretty Polly….from a CBC recording from 10/27/2001 and from there, we went to an interview done on the same show with our pal James Booth/Lord asking the vital questions.  We tried to work out a live interview with the band, but things didn’t work out, and with their permission, we aired this long ago interview. Things haven’t really changed that much for the band, as they are still staying true to their original version and pumping out some mighty fine music! They played live at Call The Office last night and we couldn’t make it….hopefully next time.
      19. The Sadies and Andre Williams…..America….from the 2012 Night and Day Lp on Yep Roc Records. First time I really got into The Sadies, was hearing them back Andre up on a bootleg record from Europe that has some crazy mind warping tunes!  When Andre finally played London about 15 or so years ago, it was a Toronto combo called The Strap backing him up. Andre put on a phenomenal show to a less than dismal turnout of diehards! We even got invited up to Andre’s ‘dressing room’, prior and after the show. A word of advice, it you’re going to get Andre to autograph something, do it before the show! Thanx to Kelly Mulvey for being Andre’s chaperon during that part of the tour.
      20. Underground Divas….This Train Is Running Out Of Faith…..recent demo from this Montreal collective and fits in near perfect with the Andre and Sadies tune.
      21. Jackie Shane…..Sticks and Stones…from the brand new Any Other Way double LP. This LP was long awaited here at WW HQ’s and collects the live LP from the mid 60’s along with many singles and a few unreleased tracks. There’s a huge LP sized booklet with the full story of Jackie written by Grammy winner Rob Bowman and it’s one of those reads you just can’t put down! So much that I had no idea about as I thought Jackie was just a Toronto based soul singer from the early to mid 60’s, but he/she released records across North America and did countless gigs both sides of the border, even playing right here in London Ontario!!!!  HUGE Thanx to Elaine Banks for getting the Jackie train rolling a few years back with her special on CBC about Jackie!
      22. Jackie Shane….Any Other Way….from the LP of the same name.
      23. Jackie Shane….New Way Of Lovin’….as above. Just couldn’t play a single track from this LP, had to play a few and you’ll be hearing lots more on future Radio WW’s.
      24. Mountain Of Wolves…..Poison….from the Poison Lp that came out quite recently and these guys are from right here in London and released the record on their own Forest City Records imprint.
      25. Wild Evel and the Trashbones…..Bugs On My Back….from the recent Digging My Grave release on Dirty Water Records and the band is from Austria.
      26. Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons…..Suneal….from the brand new Ain’t No Pussy release on Dirty Water Records and this band is from the UK.
      27. Untamed Youth…..Some Kinda Fun…..from the Some Kinda Fun Lp from 1988 on Norton Records. This features Deke Dickerson on guitar and we might be talking to him next week as he was the west coast hillbilly I referred to during the show.
      28. Empty Hours…..Primitive….from the recent It’s About Time Lp from this combo that comes to us from Brantford Ontario, just east of London.
      29. Pack AD….Because Of You……from the brand new Dollhouse CD and Pack AD were in town recently and put on another great show at Call The Office.



      Big Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, facebook messages and Heys!!!   Back again next week with special guest Pete Dekoker and maybe another….

    • Radio What Wave Playlist November 10/2017 Coaching For Sara Live To Air


      The second in our CHRW Fundraising and live to air special as we play highlights of a few of the live to airs and special CHRW recordings made over the years. Thanks to all who donated to CHRW, but especially those who donated via Radio What Wave!!! Huge Thanx!!


      1. Roger Zuraw….Remembrance Day….appropriate as this show was on the eve of Remembrance Day and a big Thanx to Roger for sending along this special song!
      2. Frankenstein 5….Kill And Go Hide….January 1994 recording done here at CHRW and ended up on this combo’s cassette….and a What Wave cassette called Baloney Sandwich (although it was probably a different recording). Frankenstein Five were London Ontario’s only pure 60’s garage style combo during the 80’s garage rock resurgence
      3. Nasty Rashes….Psychobilly Frankenstein….from a live to air on Radio WW 5/1/2008 and came out on a CD they released.
      4. The Hook Up….Silver Kiss….from a live to air on Radio WW from 2/10/2011 and they drove all the way from Montreal to do this prior to some area gigs. Remember helping them load or unload and it was one of the coldest days that winter. The Hook Up sure warmed the airwaves that day!
      5. The Hook Up….Weatherly Mansions….as above. The Hook Up now reside in Saskatoon, so that cold night probably helped them get used to Saskatoon winters! They released a brand new CD on Transistor 66 Records recently and still play out once in awhile as they have an addition to the family now.
      6. Pink Cadillac Scat Cats….Joleena…from a live to air on Radio WW 7/21/2016 on the eve of drummer Nick’s big birthday bash.  We had these guys do another live to air about 10 years ago and they are always a fun band to catch live.
      7. Bucketseat….Miss Asteroid….from a live to air on Radio WW 3/10/2011. This was a 2 piece combo, drummer Marcus from Victoria BC and the guitar player originally came from London. This was the start of a cross Canada tour, as they were heading west to Victoria BC.
      8. Frank Ridsdale…I’m Ready….from a live to air on Radio WW10/13/2016 and a tribute to the recently passed Fats Domino. Frank and his fellow Uranus band members were inducted into the Jack Richardson London Music Hall of Fame this past spring.
      9. Excelsior….Black Top Pilot…..from a live to air on It’s Trash 10/2/2015. Local combo who released one excellent 7” and then broke up.
      10. Tuerto Loco…Robert Q Public….from a live to air 5/12/2011 on Radio What Wave. Tuerto Loco are back and playing with Jack Whiteside on bass. Jack was lead guitarist for Uranus, mentioned above.
      11. Adam West….don’t know the name of this song, but it was from a live to air on CHRW  11/26/1993. Not to be confused with the band of the same name from Washington DC, this is a local combo who release a couple of CD’s.
      12. Uranus….Ned The Killer Smelt….recorded live 3/22/1982 at the Embassy Hotel and broadcast over the airwaves by Simon Less whom we talked about last show. There’s a lot of local names tossed around in this song.
      13. Blue Peter….Same Old Place….live recording at Fryfogles Tavern 5/16/1981 and broadcast on CHRW by Simon Less. Fryfogles was located on Dundas St downtown, right around where the entrance to the public library presently is.
      14. Blue Peter….The World Stops Here….as above. Blue Peter were a powerpop combo from Toronto that deviated from the path and got some commercial radio play. These 2 songs go out to Reid Fleming, World’s Toughest Milkman who now resides here in London Ontario.
      15. Captain Bringdown and The Buzz Killers….Folsom Prison….from a live to air on CHRW 5/10/2013 from the Just Another Punk radio show.
      16. Heart Attack Kids….Platonic Love Bomb….from a live to air on CHRW from 3/10/2015 on the It’s Trash radio program.
      17. Black Frame Spectacle….Around The Block….from a live to air on CHRW on the Shakin’ Katz Radio Show 4/16/2011 and this was on a cassette which the player decided to eat while onair live! Shit happens on live radio. Coincidentally, this was right at the time we found out that Fred Cole of Dead Moon fame passed. Coincidence or ???   We’ll be playing some Dead Moon, The Rats, Lollipop Shoppe and some of Fred’s other combos on next week’s show.
      18. The Thing From Outer Space….Diamond Head….from a recording done by John Gardi (The Nitebat, long time host on CHRW) from The Dawghouse 11/26/2016 and recorded for airplay on CHRW.
      19. 63 Monroe….Hijack Victim…. As above and part of the Toys For Tots show, an annual event to raise money and toys for less fortunate kids. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday November 25th at The Dawghouse.
      20. Alarm Cat….Notches….from a live to air on CHRW 1/20/2017 on the It’s Trash radio show.
      21. The Stuntdoubles….no idea what the song is called, but another live to air on CHRW from 3/11/2011, probably from the Just Another Punk show, but not sure.
      22. Randall and The Rivieras…..All Work and No Play….another recording from The Dawghouse 11/26/2016 and we’ve got at least one of The Rivieras coming on air on November 24th show.

      25. Coaching For Sara….Little Lady….as above.
      26. Coaching For Sara….Receive….as above.
      27. Coaching For Sara….She Comes In Waves…. As above.
      28. Boy From Nowhere…..Wild In The Street…. Yet another recording from the above Dawghouse show and we’re working on getting the Boy From Nowhere in to the studios for a live to air.

      Right around this time, Shane Sawyer came into the onair to talk about the live to air that just happened and plug the big show Coaching For Sara was about to do. The rest of the band came in and then we ran out of time…



      Huge Thanx to Coaching For Sara (and our CHRW sound crew) for playing live to air and sounding so good!! Had a couple phone calls saying how good the band sounded out in radio land as it’s so hard to tell in the studio with a band blasting away, amps placed in various places and microphones all over the place!!! The fun was all worth it!!


      Back again next week, big thanx for all the donations we received during Radio What Wave as fundraising continues for a few more days here at CHRW, so it’s not too late to donate either via the CHRW website or call the onair host.


      The archived show should be here, but we’re currently working on the website so it could be delayed…

    • Radio What Wave Playlist November 3/2017   Live to Air Fundraising Show


      This is our first of 2 fundraising shows here at CHRW. This show is highlights of a very few of the countless live to airs that CHRW has broadcast since 1979. Back in the early days of CHRW, there wasn’t a lot of difference between it, and local rival CIXX out of Fanshawe College. Both stations were playing this new fangled punk/new wave whatever music. Fanshawe had a one up as they had been broadcasting to the public for about a year prior to CHRW, and already had me hook, line and sinker!

      Then the game changed….CHRW was only available to part of the city via cable…meaning you had to hook up your FM receiver up to television cable to catch the sounds. Luckily, we lived in the right area, and the sound quality of CHRW pretty much beat their rival. And they had this DJ by the name of Simon Less (say that to yourself a few times and it’ll become evident) who used to go out to the clubs, record bands and then play the tapes over the airwaves. And he wasn’t recording the shit radio cover bands that played everywhere, he was down at places like The Cedar Lounge, then later The Embassy and Fryfogles. In the trenches recording the bands that I would go to see regularly. It was pretty evident when Simon was in the house, you’d see this white Styrofoam head with wires on it, in the middle of the club. That was his weapon of choice and supposedly his own invention….binaural recording!! Many a fine recording was played over the airwaves of CHRW back then! And Simon went on to win a Grammy last year, so obviously he knew what he was doing back then.

      Another reason CHRW was my favourite, is they would sometimes broadcast live from the Spoke And Rim Tavern, bands that I couldn’t get into see. You had to be a student at the University Of Western Ontario, or a guest to get into the shows at the Spoke back then. I was neither, so if the timing was right (ie these live to airs were obviously late at night when I’d be downtown at the clubs) I’d be able to hear and sometimes tape these shows on my trusty cassette deck. Some of these shows would be laced with profanity and would be censored today, but these were live and not Memorex. The Teenage Head and Rough Trade shows were both prime examples of this.

      Another reason I stayed with CHRW was this show called Young Fast And Scientific, which came on around 8 or so on most Saturday nights….right around the time I was getting primed to go out, so I didn’t always get to hear it. A guy by the name of Al Cole did this show and introduced me to a ton of crazy rock’n’roll combos that had eluded my conservative London Ontario upbringing. Bands like The Zantees. Real Kids, The Customs, Panther Burns, Weirdos, Fleshtones and so many more that I’ve not only become life long fans of these bands, but met most of them over the years!! And Al had started this little fanzine called What Wave…..but that’s a whole nother story for another time! And right after Young Fast And Scientific was Rock’n’Roll Dance Party hosted by local artist Dave Clarke! We rarely got to hear this, as the clubs and bands were beckoning our arrival for an eve of dancing, drinking and having way too much fun! The good old days!

      And that’s a couple of the influences of Radio What Wave. You’ve got to look to the past to create the future and we try to do that each episode. This particular show, is all live recordings that have been broadcast over the airwaves of CHRW! Enjoy the archived show and feel free to help support this radio station and keep the artform of cool music going in this city!!


      1. Teenage Head….Kissin’ The Carpet….recorded live at The Spoke and aired 2/18/1981. Many a choice comment at the outset by certain members of the band, but they do get the call letters correct. It’s not Gordie Lewis on stun guitar as he was recovering from the recent car accident, just north of London. And it wasn’t David Bendeth on guitar, it was Frankie Huff according to a trusted source. Parts of this recording have shown up on Teenage Head bootleg records.
      2. 63 Monroe….Johnny B Goode….recorded live at The Cedar Lounge Easter weekend 1981 and broadcast later by Simon Less. This was prime 63 Monroe/NFG and if I remember correctly, was the name change from the notorious NFG (Not For Girls or was it Non Functioning Gear or maybe something else?) to 63 Monroe as it is mentioned on the recording. This was also the show that Steve R Stunning had a huge bucket of NFG pins that he was throwing into the crowd. Wish I had grabbed more than a couple as these still look mighty fine on a faded denim jacket! Burnaway was on the guitar, DeRoux on bass and Lamborghini (with his little tiny…) on the kit!! Mayhem ensued and we went back the next night and did it all again!
      3. 63 Monroe…..Roadrunner… above and this combo introduced me to this song and many others that I still love to this day! Think Skyhooks ‘Good In Bed’ as a prime example! Think I may have returned the favour with Mental Moron by a certain NYDoll….back in the days when I went by the nickname of Dave Tape….LOL…
      4. Lonesome Ghost….Haunted By God….recorded live to air 12/17/2009 by Aylmer’s finest combo ever!! A 2 piece noise and mouth of marbles combo that played around town, even opening for John Schooley’s first ever appearance in Canada!! There’s even an ultra rare cassette put out by What Wave Records of this combo, which gives you an idea of how cool we thought they were!
      5. Bloodshot Bill…..Honky Tonk Angels….live to air on Less Talk More Rock on 12/17/2009 and host Paul gets to interview BB here and get the origins of his name! Think I was BB’s chauffer that night and got him up to CHRW and back down to Call The Office for that night’s show. And BTW, Bill is back in town at Call The Office on Friday December 1 and he says he’s gonna drop by Radio WW that day, so you’ve been warned.
      6. Bloodshot Bill….16 Chicks… as above and a mainstay of BB’s live repertoire and a mighty fine tune that always gets the crowd yelling and screaming!
      7. Frank Ridsdale…..Little Red Riding Hood….live to air on 9/16/2010. This was recorded right across the desk from me in the onair and Frank was sweatin’ up a storm and giving the wolf call like a maniac!! Frank as some may know, was a member of Uranus, the little London band that was inducted into the Jack Richardson London Music Hall Of Fame this spring. He’s currently in The Stetson Brothers amongst others and plays out a fair bit around our city. And he’s a real nice guy!
      8. Rockin’ Bobby Harris…..Boppin’ The Blues….recorded live on Fred Smith’s Hardcore Country 12/12/2007 and mighta had Jeffy B as part of the backup combo. Bobby was from Simcoe and probably the last of the surviving rockabilly guys from this area. Remember seeing him at the Victoria Tavern right around this time and he used his walker to get to the ‘stage’ and then proceeded to turn into a rockabilly maniac! Anyone know if Bobby is still alive?
      9. Mack MacKenzie….The Devil Likes Me….recorded live on Radio WW 6/16/2017 and Mack was in Montreal based 3 O’Clock Train, one of the first of the punk/country combos from that era. He’s scheduled to be back in London on November 29th at Fitzrays with the band.
      10. Frankie and Jimmy…..Smokestack Lightning…..recorded live on Radio WW 7/0/2015. Demented blues duo from Hamilton Ontario who are scheduled back in London at Call The Office on Friday December 1st. They’ve warned me that they’re heading to Radio WW prior to their evening show that night!!
      11. Rough Trade….Baptism Of Fire….recorded live at The Spoke and Rim on campus and aired over CHRW….probably around 1980 or so as I didn’t put a date on this tape. Carole let the university students know what was on her mind that night.
      12. Cordcalling….Wicked Desires….live to air on Radio WW 3/26/2009. Local duo who are still together and recently released a vinyl record!
      13. The Zellots…..Love Will Survive…..Simon Less recording from 1980/81 which is labelled as being at the Kent Hotel, but was told by Jane Zellot that they didn’t have a sax player the night they played The Kent. Judging by audience reaction on this recording, it could have been right here in London at some local venue.
      14. Bloody Diamonds…..Bright Lights Darling…..recorded here on Radio WW 9/27/2012 right before they did a show at a venue called Black Shire Pub. They are from Halifax and believe it is the only live to air on Radio WW that has featured a keyboard!
      15. Oily Birds….Yesterday’s Numbers…recorded live in the onair studio 4/29/2010 and just featured Jon Traut and Bryan Mcdonald from the band. Previously known as Boy From Nowhere, then B5 Blue, then Oily Birds and finally back to Boy From Nowhere. Easily one of London’s longest running combos as they’ve been around since about 1984. And one of London’s finest!!!
      16. Oily Birds….Second Cousin….like above and also a Flamin’ Groovies cover!
      17. Rackula….Up The Chicks….from a live to air 5/8/2010 and were an all female combo from Hamilton, with a former Londoner in the band….Lucy Fur
      18. Hiroshima Hearts….The Well…recorded live on the previous show that aired in this time slot on Fridays. And we had HH’s on a year or so ago to do another live to air which was a lot of fun!
      19. Jim Ashby….Speed City….from Radio WW from 9/14/2006 and back in the days when Mike Todd and I alternated weeks on this show. Jim explains where the song came from and how it made the charts here in London. My fave record to come out of London!
      20. The Hypnotics….New Wave Monday….from our most recent live to air 9/22/2017 and this trio is from Windsor. They did a show later that day down at the Richmond Hotel and Dave from the band, hosts Revolution Rock, one of our sister shows, on CJAM out of Windsor Ontario.
      21. 905s…..Under a Spell….not a live to air, but what was called the Radio WW Sessions, where several bands did recordings exclusively for this show. This track was recorded in 2013 and The 905s are playing the International Pop Overthrow in Hamilton at This Ain’t Hollywood towards the end of the month….details to follow soon.
      22. Dynamite Pussy Club…..Under The Grooove….from Bath UK and another session recorded exclusively for Radio What Wave!
      23. Dynamite Pussy Club….Boogie Shoes…. As above and these guys must be killer live as they’ve certainly got the groove!
      24. The Mongrels….Piece Of Crap…..yet another session recorded for Radio WW and these guys are playing tonight at Fitzrays and their usual Sunday residency at the Richmond Hotel….Rock’n’Roll Rent Party!
      25. Frankenstein Five….Writing On The Wall….recorded at CHRW  1/1994 and became a cassette the band released. This one goes out to Rob Munro, who was the bass player for the combo!


      Big Thanx for all the emails, texts, facebook messages, phone calls and Heys!!!!Back again next week with more of these live to airs and an actual live, live to air with local combo Coaching For Sara! They are also playing at the Eastside that night for their CD release party!! Lots more details on that next week!!

    • October 28, 2017 9:48 AM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist October 27/2017


      1. The Famines…..The First World War….from the recently re-ished single collection on Pentagon Black out of Montreal. The Famines, Raymond Biesinger and Garrett Heath Kruger (at the time) used to play London fairly frequently and even played a CHRW benefit at the long gone Moon Over Marin venue here in London. And speaking of which, we’re now officially in  fund raising mode here at CHRW, so help us maintain our high level of eccentricity and fine musical taste for your hopefully receptive listening devices!!
      2. The Routes….All I Find….from the about to be released Dirty Needles and Pins on Greenway Records. The Routes, one of Japan’s finest (if not the finest!) ongoing examples of the best of 60’s garage rock sounds!! And this is their second long player of 2017!! Check out their latest promo pics, looks like they’ve absconded with my old Vox Constellation IV bass and are putting it to great use!
      3. The Brogues….Ain’t No Miracle Worker….from Mindrocker Volume 1, collection of mighty fine 60’s garage/psych sounds. And on vinyl as are many of today’s treats as the London Record Show is happening on Sunday October 29th here in London and you can catch us at our table selling records, zines, CD’s posters and other ephemera. And I’m still looking for any of those 60’s garage rock compilations that I don’t yet have.
      4. Baronen and Satan….Lady Creature….brand new from Sweden on the ultra suave Dirty Water Records label outta the UK.  Dirty Water, which now has a US division is pumping out literally tons of cool vinyl from some of the finest modern garage, soul and rock’n’roll combos out there!
      5. Excelsior….Pornos….local 7” from a band that didn’t last long enough! Ran into vocalist Chris the other day and he gave me the rundown on why the band broke up. Really unique sounds as far as local punk combos go!
      6. Mountain Of Wolves…Don’t Call My Name….from their brand new Poison LP released on the brand new Forest City Records imprint.
      7. Hiroshima Hearts….Reach Out….another brand new local release, this a 7” from this band that seems to be getting some very interesting opening slots for some of the bigger touring combos that come here. And we had them on the air a few weeks back!
      8. DT’s…..Wrap It Up…..from a 7” on the Groovie Records label outta France, this is Estrus head honcho Dave Crider’s rock’n’soul combo with Madame X on the vocals!
      9. Downbeat 5….Radiates The Charm…from their self titled debut release on SFTRI from 2003. Former Lyre/DMZ JJ Rassler hands the guitar duties, so you know this is gonna be good!! And ya, that’s the Arthur Alexander tune that Teenage Head covered about 30 years ago with Dave Rave on the vocals.
      10. Dead Moon….Don’t Burn The Fires….from a 7” on Tombstone Records from 1988 and goes out to singer/guitarist Fred Cole who is in the hospital and hoping for a full recovery. Fred has been active since about 1965 with The Lollipop Shop (You Must Be A  Witch),  The Weeds, The Rats, Zipper, Western Front, Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows and so many more!! Dead Moon played Call The Office many moons ago and put on a primal set of rock’n’roll tunes that is still talked about!
      11. The Zellots…On The Dole….from their brand new flexi and recorded in the late 70’s. We had Jane Zellot onair to talk about this last week and the record will be available at the London Record Show from me.
      12. Mean Motor Scooter….Sam The Homosapien…..from their brand new Hindu Flying Machine release on Dirty Water Records and they are from Austin Texas and about to tour with The Darts.
      13. Kid Mojo…..Looking For A Change….UK based combo who just released this and sent us some tunes to play!
      14. Empty Hours….Radio….from their brand new It’s About Time LP and they are from Brantford Ontario, just east of London. We’ve been bugging them to come to London to play and hopefully soon!
      15. Coaching For Sara…..Look Around…from their recent remaster of their debut CD. We’ve got them scheduled for a live to air on November 10th right here on Radio WW!     Right about this time, Mike Todd from Speed City Records, here in town, called us up to give all the details on the London Record Show happening on Sunday April 29th here at Centennial Hall. Lots of new dealers this time, come drop by, put a coupla extra bucks in the CHRW fund raising jar at the front door and check out the show.  We’ll be at the Radio WW table at the show….
      16. Jim Ashby…..Speed City…..7” on the record label of the same name and Mike promises to have some copies of this at the show! Easily my fave record to come out of London Ontario and this one for some reason, generates more phone calls than anything else we’ve played over the years….and this show was no different with 2 calls about the record!
      17. Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants….Only Game In Town….from their brand new Half Wits LP on Speed City records and again, available at the show!
      18. Fats Domino….My Real Name….from a greatest hits LP and goes out to Fats who passed away earlier this week! Highly influential in the New Orleans sound and early rock’n’roll and locals, Slugfest and The Stetsons both cover his songs.
      19. The Easybeats….Friday On My Mind…..this song may be 50 years old, but almost every Monday morning it still goes through my brain!! Possibly the greatest 60’s tune to bring the working week to weekend escape into focus! This goes out to guitarist/writer/producer George Young who passed away this week. His younger brothers formed AC/DC whom George went on to produce, write songs and mentor.
      20. The Easybeats….For My Woman….second single from 1965 and the R&B noise of this one still sounds fucking amazing well over 50 years past!
      21. The Easybeats….Gonna Have A Good Time….another classic, The Purple Toads covered this one about 30 years ago !
      22. The Minstrels….Rhythm In Her Head….from the Come Out To Play EP from 1989 on What Wave Records. Since there’s a record show on Sunday, thought we’d spin a few of the records we put out many years back. This combo was form Quebec City, saw them at Call The Office doing 3 sets and we thought we gotta put something out by these guys. Hence this EP, which was their first release and they went on to release several CD’s and a single or 2. Check the runout grooves on this one for a little addition of mine….
      23. 10 Commandments…..New Trip…..from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood, a compilation album we curated for OG Records back in 1989. This was one of the last OG releases and did remarkably well across Canada. Cover art was done by David Clarke and we put the whole thing together at future Juno Award winner Dan Brodbeck’s studio, that was in his parent’s basement. 10 Commandments were from Toronto and released many LP’s and singles, with singer James Booth going on to a career with CBC.
      24. The Gruesomes….I Try….from Thee Cave Comes Alive, an LP on the Action Records label out of Greece from 2004. This was a compilation LP of a very few of the songs that we released on cassette and came with What Wave zines in the 80’s and early 90’s. Action Records put up the money (thanx to George Rigas), did all the piecing together of the songs and we helped track down bands….this was way before facebook and a lot more difficult than you could imagine. There’s a real nice insert with band pics, bios and pics of some of the covers of What Wave zines. You see this record around at local stores now and again and was what propelled me to get on the air at CHRW and do Radio What Wave (along with Mike Todd from Speed City).
      25. Legend Killers….You’ll Get Yours….from the Better Than Hammerin’ 7” that came out in 1989 on What Wave Records. This one allowed the band to tour Canada and find those pockets of appreciative fans spread across Canada! Legend Killers managed to be the only band to appear on every What Wave compilation (cassette, vinyl and CD!) and they have their own Facebook page with lots of old pics!
      26. The Mongrols….Plastic Girl….from the 7” EP, 4 Whom The Bell Tolls that came with What Wave zine 15 back in 1988. This was our first vinyl release and we learned a lot from this one and got exposure for 4 talented bands from London….The Mongrols (not to be confused with the The Mongrels of today), Flying Squad, Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons and The Legend Killers. Sorry for the little bit of self indulgence....but you might be able to find these records at the record show. It won't happen again...the self indulgence that is as this show is ONLY about the music, the times and the fun!
      27. Dirty Fences….Blue Screen…..from the about to be released Goodbye Love LP on Greenway Records. Some amazing powerpop sounds from this NYC area combo and they even have Tina of Sheer Mag on a song or two!
      28. Blue Peter….Radio Silence…..from the 1980 LP Radio Silence and the beginning of their shift into mainstream music. First time we ever saw Blue Peter at the Cedar Lounge was fucking incredible!! The singer would jump onto the dance floor and dance up a storm with these power pop guitar chords just blasting away!! Such fun times and later on, they became the combo that did a Black Label beer commercial!
      29. Jackie Shane….Sticks And Stones….from the just released Any Other Way double LP that collects the singles, the live LP from about 1963 and some unreleased songs. Huge booklet inside that covers the story (Elaine Banks did an excellent CBC bio on Jackie Shane a number of years back, and her work helped inspire this release) in great detail, all written by Rob Bowman (he did the Stax re-issue notes a few years back) and with so many pictures I’d never seen before!! This was long awaited by me as Jackie Shane was such a unique performer and amazing soul singer!!!


      Big thanx to Mike Todd from Speed City Records for taking the time to talk about the London Record Show happening on Sunday October 29th at Centennial Hall.

      And a Huge thanx to all the crazy phone calls, emails, FB messages and Heys!!! Next week is fund raising here at CHRW and we’re doing a special and playing only highlights of Live To Airs from CHRW going all the way back to about 1980…’ll be quite surprised at some of the bands we might be playing next week!!

    • October 21, 2017 9:10 AM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist October 20/2017   Jane Zellot Colligan as guest


      1. Tuerto Loco….Nancy Sinatra….recorded live on Radio WW 5/12/2011 as a live to air. Nancy Sinatra was originally done by Hank’n’Frank and released on a cassette called Garunge that came with WW zine #14 December 1987. One of my all time fave tunes to come out of London Ontario and Tuerto Loco just happens to be playing at the St Regis on Saturday October 21st.  They may even play this song if you ask nice.
      2. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings….Something’s On My Mind…..from the 2007 Let’s Frolic CD. This song was originally done by Teenage Head, and coincidentally, this week is the anniversary of Frankie Venom’s passing. Frankie, was the original singer for Teenage Head.  And Blackie and The Rodeo Kings are doing a double show on Thursday night at the Aeolian Hall here in London.
      3. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings….Stoned….from the BARK CD from 2003 and sung by Tom Wilson.
      4. Mountain Of Wolves….Poison….from the brand new LP of the same name. Released on the brand new record label Forest City Records and obviously from London Ontario. They’ve got a live to air scheduled for Saturday April 28th here on CHRW to start our annual fund raising event.
      5. Tragically Hip….Suzy Q…recorded live at Call The Office 3/3/1988 as they played that venue many times. Goes out to their singer Gord who passed away this week.
      6. Mean Motor Scooter….Intro and Wave Spotting….from their brand new release on Dirty Water Records called Hindu Flying Machine and they are from Austin Texas.
      7. Expanda Fuzz…..Last Of The Who Heads….from the Last Of The Who Heads release that just came out. From Ottawa Ontario.

      11. The Dahlmanns….Connie Converse….from their brand new split 7” on Beluga Records out of Sweden and the are from Norway. Reputable sources call this the best powerpop combo on the planet!
      12. Escobar….Terrible Man….from their brand new The Biggest Sound release on Dirty Water Records USA and they are from France. They will be on tour with The Darts on their US tour for the next month or so.
      13. Stunning….Party Like a Rock Star….from their Punk Rock Soldier release and are playing at the Eastside tonight.
      14. The Saints….Follow The Leader….from the Casablanca LP from 1982 and goes out to drummer Iain Sheddon who passed away earlier this week. Iain picked up the sticks for The Saints when they moved to the UK and appeared on several albums. He was also a well respected music writer in Australia and had authored several books. He was not in The Saints when they played here in London a dozen or so years ago.
      15. Randall and the Rivieras….Drinkin’ From The Well….from their recent self titled CD and composed of long time vets of the London scene….2 of them were in The Verge, one is in 63 Monroe and one was in The Hippies and Boy From Nowhere….all respected bands in London’s musical history. Check WW zine 24 for more details, available at Brown and Dickson on Richmond St.
      16. Dirty Fences….One More Step….from their soon to be released Goodbye Love LP and this particular track features Tina Halladay of Sheer Mag. Dirty Fences are a NYC combo who started as more of a punk rock type thing, switching gears into one of my fave genres, powerpop. This whole new album comes highly recommended!!
      17. NYDolls….Don’t Mess With Cupid…from the Rock’n’Roll CD on Polygram from 1994. Thought you’d heard it all by The NYDolls and here’s this little blistering number to make your ears smile….couple of other unreleased tunes on this one as well, all from 1974.
      18. Empty Hours….Frankie and Delilah….from the It’s About Time LP and these guys are from Brantford Ontario. They were around 30 years ago, had a coupla tunes released on WW tapes and resurfaced a few years back. Gotta get these guys to come to London Ontario real soon.
      19. Heather Haley…..3 Blocks West Of Wonderland….from a few years back and Heather was the original singer for The Zellots, when they started in Vancouver back in about 1978.
      20. The Zellots…..On The Dole….from the brand new 7” of unreleased demos of The Zellots in their Vancouver days with Heather on vocals. You can pick this record up at Speed City Record here in town or at the London Record Show on the 29th from me.
      21. The Zellots….Vampyre Love…as above. These demos came from a cassette tape that someone found as the original reel tapes are long gone.
      22. The Zellots….Let’s Play House….as above….and coincidentally Jane Colligan, who played bass on these tracks and was the only bass player for The Zellots, came into the studio to talk Zellots. Originally Chrissy DeVeber and Jane were scheduled to come in, but Chrissy couldn’t make it and we were going  to re-schedule… radio, so you go with whatever happens!!
      23. The Zellots….1 Way Street….1980 recording done by Peter Moore from the Kent Hotel in the Kitchener area. This and the next 2 songs were broadcast on CHRW by Peter Moore (ya, the guy that won a Grammy last year and went under the alias Simon Less back in those days) and I taped them on my trusty cassette player.
      24. The Zellots….Fire In Cairo… as above. Jane talked about the Kent, as it was a strip bar in the daytime and then band in the evening. The Zellots were on stage getting ready and were hassled a fair bit by the patrons as the 3 front members are all female.
      25. The Zellots…I Love My Dog….as above and described as a fuck song by Jane as it was just something they made up…
      26. The Zellots….One Or The Other….recorded live at The York Hotel (no known as Call The Office) probably by Mike Niederman on his little trusty cassette deck. Probably from 1980 or there abouts.
      27. The Zellots…Blades….from a 1981 demo recorded at EMAC Studios in London. Coincidentally, this song was played the previous night on a TV show called Supernatural on the Space Channel. It was used in the background when a tattoo artist was at work! The things you learn on the fly from your guests!!!
      28. The Zellots….Social Elite….from the above demo and a request by Jane. These demos have been released by the band in small quantities and were sold at the Graphic Underground show back in 2012, the last time the band played.
      29. The Zellots….Let’s Play House….from August 1981 at the Cedar Lounge, and this was Doug and Rose’s wedding bash show…..also appearing that night were Certain General from NYC (with Marcy Saddy on the kit), Sheep Look Up (or were they Radio 4 that night) and the debut of Spiral Scratch. This was recorded by Dead Rabbit Kerry Piper on his trusty cassette deck and Doug is one of our regular listeners here on Radio WW as we played a couple of his requests a few weeks back.


      Huge Thanx to Jane Colligan for showing up to talk about the brand new record and all things Zellots. You can pick the record up locally at Speed City Records, or at the London Record Show on Sunday October 29th, Centennial Hall.

      And speaking of the London Record Show, Mike Todd will be talking next week about it on this show!

Mr Haney’s Revenge….Justine….1991 7” from this Windsor combo that featured our pal Paul Langan, who was just inducted into the Windsor Music Hall Of Fame (or whatever they call it) for his long and tireless work in the Windsor music scene. This song was also featured on a WW cassette called The 8Th Wonder back in 1991.
      7. Lost Patrol….Second Time Around….from a 7” from this Windsor combo that Paul Langan commandeered. Probably late 80’s/early 90’s this band played London many times, were one of the first  bands produced/recorded by Juno Award winner Dan Brodbeck (when his studio was in his parent’s basement) and one of the few (if only) English Canadian bands to have an LP released in France, but not in Canada! And they played many WW benefits and shows for us and were featured on several WW cassettes and Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood.

And speaking of Dirty Water Records, there is now a US outlet/division of the label that will be releasing some different records as well as distro for the UK division. The US part of the label is run by a member of one of our fave Dirty Water Records bands, The Darts!
      12. Dirty Fences….Dance….from their brand new Goodbye Love release on Dirty Water Records. This is an NYC based combo that have moved in a more powerpop direction for this release.

      16. Death Drive….Death Drive….from their self titled demo and from Montreal.
      17. Smithereens….Mr Eliminator….from a 12” EP and we posted a bunch of pics of The Smithereens on the Radio WW FB page, right before the band took off for the big time. And it goes out to Pat DiNizio, who had a fall in his home and had to cancel a couple of shows for recovery time. All the best to Pat!!
      18. The Smithereens…..Wall Of Sleep….from the 1986 LP Especially For You. One of my fave Smithereen tunes and I still vividly remember hearing the band play this long before the record came out and thinking this song should be a hit!
      19. Buddy Holly….Rave On…..from 1958 and goes out to Brian Logie who passed away this week. Brian name the London Knights, designed their uniforms, and was a HUGE hockey fan/collector whose specialty was hockey sticks. His collection went to the Hockey Hall Of Fame in Toronto where he dedicated much of his time and expertise.
      20. B Girls….Who Says Girls Can’t Rock….from the brand new B Girls LP on Bomp Records and there is a B Girls reunion set for Toronto in November. Local drummer Marcy Saddy was a part of that band for several years.

      22. Charles Bradley…..God Bless America….from the Changes LP and goes out to Charles who passed away earlier this week. One of the greatest soul singers who could bring a packed house to tears and he’s gonna be missed big time!
      23. Charles Bradley….Good To Be Back Home… as above.
      24. Charles Bradley…..Changes….as above and Charles brings a whole new approach to this Black Sabbath song….so much emotion!!!
      25. King Khan and his Shrines….Land Of The Freak….from the Supreme Genius Of CD on Vice Records and goes out to Princess Sam who was in the studio with us last week.
      26. Barrence Whitfield and The Savages….Bloody Mary….from the 1985 LP Dig Yourself and goes out to Ryan In The Red, who does a show every couple of weeks on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 right here on CHRW. Introduced Ryan to Barrence Whitfield and many other soul records when he dropped by a couple weeks back. BW was in town a couple years back, and this combo opened up for them…..
      27. Marcellus Wallace….Take It Higher….from their self titled CD and from right here in London Ontario.
      28. Kumonga….Here Come The Spiders….from their self titled CD from 2012 and from Oshawa Ontario. Lead singer/keyboard Dan Walters was in The Brown Hornets, who used to play here a fair bit.
      29. Quik…..Bert’s Apple Crumble…..from 1967 and a mod/soul dance floor filler! Taken from a Kent compilation called Rhythm and Blue-Eyed Soul and has some great Chris Farlowe tracks on it!
      30. Small Faces….Afterglow….from the Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake LP from 1968.
      31. The Artwoods…..Can You Hear Me…from the CD Art Gallery that collects some unreleased Artwood tracks and this song is from 1966. Art is the older brother of that Ron Wood guy, who’s presently in a little combo called The Rolling Stones. But getting back to The Artwoods, they were one of my fave mod/soul combos from the early to mid 60’s from the UK and profiled in detail in Ugly Things a couple years back.


      Big Thanx for all the phone calls, emails and facebook messages!!! And congrats to Dan Holstead for winning The Hypnotics prize package! We’ve got another to give away next week.

      And speaking of next week’s show, Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants have their record release show the day after, and a couple of those guys will be dropping by to yammer about the show. And it’s gonna be a big one, as it’s also the 20th Anniversary Party for local record shop Speed City! If you haven’t been already, check out the selection at Speed City on Springbank Drive here in London.

    • Radio What Wave Playlist Sept 22/2017 The Hypnotics Live To Air


      Some shows I feel like a duck on the water….all looks calm on the surface, but below, the feet are going insane! But it’s all for fun and we even had rock’n’roll royalty in the onair booth as a young student dropped by, and asked if she could watch the band play! Turns out the young student, Sam, is the cousin of King Khan!!! Told her about the time King Khan played Call The Office to all of about 12 people and still put on an absolute Stunner of a show! Shoulda taken pics at that show.


      And we had Windsor’s The Hypnotics doing a live to air during the show…had a few tech issues, but Adam and our Excellent sound crew here at CHRW were able to iron everything out and the boys blasted out the rock’n’roll for all you crazy listeners!!   And they sounded great later in the eve at the Richmond, playing with Running From Daylight (finally got to see these guys and they didn’t disappoint!!) and Space Slave played as well but had to leave.


      1. Oh! Gunquit……Fireballs….from their about to be released LP, Lightning Likes Me, on the Dirty Water Records label outta the UK.
      2. Dirty Fences….All You Need Is A Number….from the about to be released LP, Goodbye Love on the Dirty Water label. These guys are outta NYC.
      3. B Girls….B Side…from the just released LP on Bomp Records and recorded back in about 1978. B Girls have a reunion show set up for November in Toronto.
      4. Dave Rave….Anne Marie….from the recent A Little Messed Up In Rock’n’Roll LP. Dave, and our good pal Mack MacKenzie were playing a show together in California the day this show aired. And coincidentally, both have done live to airs here on Radio What Wave.
      5. Hiroshima Hearts…..Get Me Movin’….from their brand new 7” and we had a blast at their record release party on Saturday night. First time ever, we’ve had to wear earplugs at the Aeolian Hall!
      6. Underground Divas…..Devil With A Matchstick….demo from this Montreal combo. They record and we play on the air….
      7. Hurricane and Able….Suddenly….from a demo, couple years back and features Shawn MacDonald who is in Space Slave. Was trying to play some Space Slave to hype the show that night and oddly, it wouldn’t play.
      8. The Fine Print….Tonight….from their self titled CD from about 5 years ago and also features Shawn MacDonald.
      9. Running From Daylight….Coffin For 2….from their debut download and they were the opening band that night at the Richmond. They are well worth checking out if you dig thick, fast rockabilly sounds.
      10. Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants…..Dougall Drop….from their brand new 12” on Speed City Records. Record release party is in a couple of weeks and details closer to the show.
      11. Noble Savages….I Don’t Wanna Be A Boy No More….from their recent Trouble Brewing CD on Transistor 66 Records.
      12. The Nervousmen…..Stride Adjustment….from their recent download and from London Ontario.
      13. The Judys….Human Fly…..demo that isn’t on their recent CD and from Vancouver.
      14. Flamin’ Groovies….Let Me Rock….from their brand new Fantastic Plastic CD that we actually have in the CHRW library!!! You’ll be hearing lots more from this release!
      15. The Undertones….When Saturday Comes….from their Positive Touch LP from 1981. Over the years, I’ve really grown to appreciate this LP and now understand the movement towards a soul sound by the band.
      16. The Spectors….In My Grave…..from a 1992 7” on Prospective Records from Minneapolis…been going through some of my Prospective 7”’s and there was a lot of cool and forgotten music on that label.
      17. The Sherbs….Time Is Waiting….from the compilation Lost In The Haze #19 from the Not Lame Powerpop label. The Sherbs were from Australia, and had a couple of their LP’s released in Canada in the early 80’s.
      18. The Skyhooks….Living In the 70’s….from the above compilation and released in Australia in the mid 70’s. The Skyhooks released several LP’s, most were released here In Canada and many in London may know the song You Just Like Me Cause I’m Good In Bed as 63 Monroe used to cover that one.
      19. Shaun Cassidy and Utopia….So Said About Us….from the above compilation and the first time we’ve ever played former teen heart throb Shaun Cassidy on this show! Expect the unexpected!
      20. The Hypnotics…..New Wave Monday….live to air, the first 30s or so of this one didn’t go over the airwaves as you gotta press that red button too!! If there wasn’t a screw up of some sort, it wouldn’t be a Radio What Wave!!
      21. The Hypnotics…..You Know You Got It Right….as above.
      22. The Hypnotics….All Yesterday’s Parties….as above.
      23. The Hypnotics…..Isn’t It Fun…. As above.  Then the band took a quick break so that Dave and Mike could swap guitar/bass for the second part of the live to air.
      24. Angry Dragons….Girlfriend….from their self titled CD from 2009.
      25. The Hypnotics….Can’t Stand It Any More….live to air.
      26. The Hypnotics…..Don’t Cry No Tears…. As above.
      27. 905s….Direction….from their 2015 CD Shake Down and from Brampton Ontario. Right after this one, The Hypnotics came on to talk and hype the show that happened that evening at the Richmond Hotel. Big Thanx to the band for taking the time to come and play live to air.
      28. Popular Mechanix….Ice Box City….from their 1981 debut LP and from Winnipeg. Still remember being blown away by these guys when they played The Cedar Lounge here in London right after this record came out!
      29. Pop Rivets……Fun In The UK….from their Fun In the UK LP from 1985, originally recorded back in about 1979. This is a Childish band, prior to The Milkshakes and all the following bands.
      30. Pop Rivets….Lambrettavespascoota….as above and part of a series of connected tunes….
      31. Pop Rivets…..Beatle Boots…as above.


      Big Thanx to The Hypnotics, Adam and the CHRW sound crew and all the crazies that phoned in, emailed and sent facebook messages! As always a blast!  Back next week with lots more ear candy and noise to annoy.
