    • Radio What Wave Playlist August 18/2017


      1. Crankin’ With Elvis….Supreme Bagg Team….from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood compilation from 1989 and the perfect way to start this show as Wednesday was the 40th anniversary of the death of The King.
      2. Elvis Presley….Heartbreak Hotel….live recording from 1956 and it gives you a bit of the idea of the craziness that surrounded any live performance by Elvis back then!
      3. Elvis Presley….Long Tall Sally…. As above.
      4. Elvis Presley….That’s All Right….Sun recording from January 1955. If it wasn’t for Elvis, Scotty Moore, Sam Phillips and Bill Black the world would have been a lot different musically and culturally! Teenagers flipped when they first heard Elvis!!
      5. Cowboy Project…. All Shook Up….local combo with Hayden Vialva (The Dice), Kevin Kardsley (The Kards) and others.
      6. Boy From Nowhere….King Creole….recorded live at Mortz’s according to the scrawl on the CD. Boy From Nowhere are still active and well worth checking out live if you ever get the chance! We’ve had them on Radio WW a couple of times for live to airs and each time has been a treat.
      7. Frank Ridsdale….Mystery Train….live recording from Radio WW 9/16/2010. Frank was a member of Uranus, the combo that was just inducted into the Jack Richardson London Music Hall of Fame this year! And he’s a member of The Stetson Brothers who gig around town quite a bit.
      8. Peter Singh….I’m on the Phone Elvis….1982 7” from the UK and the only Elvis tribute record by a Sikh I’ve ever seen! Lavender Sweep Records from the UK is currently working on a compilation of Peter Singh’s recordings and a possible documentary!
      9. Satan’s Cheerleaders with Vampira….Tribute To Elvis….1987 7” on the Living Eye Records imprint. Vampira is the actress who appeared in Plan 9 From Outer Space as well as some other flicks.
      10. Gun Club….For The Love Of Ivy…..from the Fire Of Love LP from 1981 with the classic refrain of “All dressed up like an Elvis from hell!!’  Remember reading about this record in NYRocker when it first came out and sounded like something that I would really dig!! Ran over to Records On Wheels (only record store in London that sold the punk/new wave records back then) and it’s been one of my fave records ever since! A few years later Gun Club played Mingles here in London, with Kid Congo on the git, Patricia Bagg on bass and not sure who drummed. It was packed, hot and sweaty and a fight broke out between some cat that does a show here on CHRW and Dougie Sinner that resulted in a bunch of people getting kicked out! Kid Congo was wearing a heavy black sweater with a huge skull on the front and someone from the crowd yelled, ‘Hey Kid, where’d you get the sweater?’ and Kid nonchalantly replied ‘my Mom knit if for me!’  There’s a coupla pics from this show in a long ago edition of What Wave zine. Jeffrey Lee Pierce came back to London a few years later to play at Bullwinkles, Deja Voodoo opened and this was the infamous wrestling on the dance floor show with some Legend Killers and others going at it. Jeffrey wasn’t very inspiring at this show, but Deja Voodoo sure got the wrestling going!
      11. Janice K….Teddy Bear….from Wave From The Grave, the cassette that came with What Wave zine #12 back in 1987. Janice became a famous Elvis interpreter, appearing on many television show, national magazines and even books!
      12. Pale Lips….Old Flame….from a brand new 7” from this all female combo outta Montreal.
      13. The Darts….Strange Days….from the soon to be released LP Me.ow, on Dirty Water Records out of the UK, but these gals are from LA and the west coast!
      14. Leadfoot Tea….Coronet Hemi….brand new 7” on Beluga Records out of Sweden and LT is a one man band.
      15. Bath Salts….Cool Like The Music….from their recent Mardi Gras CD and by request.
      16. Peter and the Wolves….Let Me See You Growl….from a live recording from this Calgary based rockabilly combo. They are scheduled for September 7th at the Richmond Hotel here in London.
      17. Pat Todd and the Rank Outsiders…Failure Is My Name….from a 7” on Beluga Records. Around this time I dedicated a set to Steve Bannon.
      18. 3 O’Clock Train….Stupid Little Angel….from the mid 80’s Wig Wam Beach LP. Singer Mack MacKenzie is scheduled for a live to air on next week’s edition of Radio WW. He will also be appearing locally at Fitzrays on Wednesday August 30th.
      19. Dave Rave…..Sweet American Music….from his latest LP, A Little Messed Up In Rock’n’Roll.
      20. Dany Laj and the Looks….Mr Screaming Attitude….from their latest release, Alive and Kicking and we sent this out to our pal Kerry Piper.
      21. The Judys….Genda Benda….from their self titled debut and from Vancouver.
      22. The Dahlmanns…..The Last Time….from their latest single on the Next Big Thing label out of Scotland and as they say on their website, ‘the best powerpop band on the planet’ and couldn’t agree more. This particular song was penned by Andy Shernoff and that’s  him  playing on it as well.
      23. Jill Porter….Just Ask….from her self titled CD and from 2005 and from Newfoundland.
      24. Scott Biram…..Judgement Day…..from the Something’s Wrong/We’re Lost CD and the start of a set to help me forget about the shit that’s going on in the world right now! Listen to the lyrics on this one and you’ll get where I’m coming from!  Scott is appearing at This Ain’t Hollywood on Monday night.
      25. Noble Savages….I Don’t Wanna Be a Boy No More….from the recent Trouble Brewing CD and from Hamilton Ontario. This CD was released by Transistor 66 Records out of Winnipeg.
      26. The Subhumans….Mindless Tough Guy Act….from the New Dark Age Parade from a few years back and this little ska number sums up a lot of the shit that is going on now. The Subhumans played London back in 1981 and it was one of their best shows on their first and only cross Canada tour back then. Years later they reformed and played at Call The Office, energy intact and politically astute as ever!
      27. Cardboard Brains….Babys Run My World….from the Last Pogo Lp that was recorded at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto for the last day of punk/new wave combos. The show was documented in a movie, and then later in a full blown doc on the Toronto/Hamilton punk scene in The Last Pogo Jumps Again. Recommended if you have any interest in the early punk scene from this area. We had Colin Brunton Director/producer as a guest on Radio WW a few years back.
      28. Drastic Measures…Big Town Boy….from their self titled Lp from 1980 and they also played at the above mentioned Last Pogo. Art rock, but the message is still there!
      29. Last Poets…..This Is Madness….from the LP of the same name and one of the first rap records to be released, circa 1970. Sums up a lot of the shit going down today.
      30. Last Poets….When The Revolution Comes….from their self titled LP and a double shot of the Last Poets that probably lost us a few listeners. For those that kept listening, hope you could decipher some of these lyrics and relate them to our situation.
      31. Fela Kuti….Zombie….from the Lp of the same name and from 1975. One of my fave Fela Kuti songs and again, the lyrics say it all in so few words! Fela’s son Seun made an appearance at Sun Fest here in London a few years back and absolutely killed it!! Dancing for over an  hour on solid concrete takes its toll on the body but worth every second!
      32. The Subhumans….I Got Religion….from the New Dark Age Parade Lp and had to play this as the next DJ was late arriving. Again, timely.


      Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, facebook messages and Heys!!!


      Back again next week with a live to air with Mack MacKenzie of 3 O’Clock Train fame!

    • Radio What Wave Playlist August 11/2017


      We started a new feature with this edition of Radio What Wave, Meet Your Local Band. We met 2 local bands, Running From Daylight, a fairly recent addition to the London music scene, and Hiroshima Hearts, a well established band who are just about to release their first 7’ record. In fact, we did the world premiere of this about to be released record on the show!


      1. Twin Fin….Jungle Room….from their brand new just released vinyl  LP Whiskey Wine and Venom Love. The record release party was last weekend at the Richmond Hotel, and it was to a packed and enthusiastic crowd!
      2. Running From Daylight….Elvis Ain’t Dead….live recording from Call The Office. Right about this time, Andrew Bellini-Rutledge (vocals and guitar) from Running From Daylight came onair to talk about the band’s big show happening on the eve of this radio show and all things Running From Daylight. This was our first attempt at Meet Your Local Band and it seemed to go over well.
      3. Running From Daylight….Folsom Prison Blues….as above.
      4. Running From Daylight…Coffin For 2….from a recent demo that you can download from Bandcamp.
      5. Running From Daylight…Devil’s Night….as above.  Big Thanx to Andrew for coming onair to talk and be the inaugural (guinea pig) for our new Meet Your Local Band feature!
      6. The Zantees….Please Give Me Something….from their 1980 LP Out For Kicks on Bomp Records and played this as Andrew sounds a bit like the young Billy Miller on this track. And that ain’t anything to be taken lightly!
      7. The Thing From Outer Space…..Too Drunk To Surf….their latest demo and they are playing with Running From Daylight at the Richmond on the eve of this show.
      8. The Thing From Outer Space….The Thing From Outer Space….from their recent CD of the same name.
      9. Roger Zuraw….Homeless Man….brand new and from an upcoming release by Etobicoke resident.
      10. 3 O’Clock Train….Train Of Dreams….from the 1985 LP Wig Wam Beach. Features Mack MacKenzie on vocals and guitar and we’ll be featuring Mack on a live to air in 2 weeks time here on Radio WW (August 25th).
      11. Fireball Grant….Alright Now….from his latest recordings and we had Fireball on a couple weeks back.
      12. The Bandits….Bandito….from The Electric 12 LP from the mid 60’s and this features Glen Campbell on the 12 string Rick. RIP to Glen Campbell.
      13. The Heck….Waiting In Line…from a brand new 7” on Dirty Water Records from the UK.
      14. Steppenwolf….Born To Be Wild…from a Greatest Hits LP and goes out to Goldy McJohn who played the big keyboards on this one. RIP to Goldy. For those that don’t know, Steppenwolf started out in Toronto as The Sparrow, then moved out to California, renamed themselves and took off from there.
      15. Hiroshima Hearts…..Spend Your Money….from the Bone Music EP and right about here, Jenn Marino and Michael DV joined me for the second Meet Your Local Band feature on this show.
      16. Hiroshima Hearts….Reach Out….from the about to be released 7” on Hiroshima Hearts Records. This was the official world premiere over the airwaves! The official release party is September 16th at Aeolian Hall along with their good pals Pacanomad. For those that have never been, Aeolian Hall has Amazing acoustics and is an old style music hall.
      17. Hiroshima Hearts….Got Me Moving….the B side of the single. The covers aren’t finished yet, but the artwork is by local (soon to be legendary) artist Jeremy Bruneel!
      18. Hiroshima Hearts….Pistol….also from the Bone Music EP.
      19. 63 Monroe….Punk Rock Goalie…from the recent Jeff LP and they will be playing Saturday night at SOHO along with 44i and Running From Daylight and former Terminal Dave Clark’s band.
      20. B Girls….B Side….from their Who Says Girls Can’t Rock CD on OPM Records. B Girls have just released a vinyl LP on Bomp Records which features many of the songs from this CD. There is a London connection as Marcy Saddy was the drummer for most of the B Girls recordings.


      Big Thanx to Andrew of Running From Daylight and Hiroshima Hearts, Jenn and Michael for coming live onair here on Radio WW!! Hope you listeners had as much fun as I did!

      And a big thanx for all the phone calls, emails and facebook messages while onair!! Much appreciated!!


      Here’s a link to what could be the archived show:



    • August 5, 2017 7:29 AM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist August 4/2017. Jason Dickson as Special Guest


      We had Jason Dickson (Co-author, along with Vanessa Brown of London 150 Cultural Moments) on as a special guest to talk about the book and London Ontario history. We had a delightful conversation, bringing up a few of the moments caught in the book as well as a few that weren’t in the book. Talked about the musical history of London Ontario, start of the punk rock scene and loads more!! It was a total blast and hope you listeners had as much fun as we did!


      1. Mongrels….Nice Tits….didn’t mean to play this song and hopefully no one was offended. Meant to play All Systems Go. The Mongrels are celebrating the 3rd anniversary of their monthly Rock’n’Roll Rent Party at the Richmond on Sunday from 4 till 7 PM.
      2. Nihilist Spasm Band….Stop And Think  Shitheads….an early 70’s recording of London’s longest lasting band?!? Well covered in the book, as are its participants as they were a key part of an art/cultural movement here in London. This band has toured a good part of the world and are legends in many places, yet almost unknown in their home town. Which says a lot about London Ontario.
      3. The Demics….New York City….from their 1979 EP, Talk’s Cheap on Ready Records. London’s most known punk combo and their most popular tune and it’s all about leaving London! Forgot to mention that Ready Records formed right here in London as its main participants were students in Fanshawe College Music Industry Arts. A program founded by former UK Pirate DJ Tom Lodge….and was later joined by famed Guess Who producer Jack Richardson (hence the Jack Richardson Music Awards here in London).
      4. The Demics….Heart Of The City….live recording from the Cedar Lounge 1978, London’s infamous punk/new wave/whatever club that was at the north west corner of King and Talbot. Ironically, there are large balls located there now! This particular song sums up going down town to see the bands at the clubs in the 70’s/80’s.
      5. Uranus….You’re So Square….from a live recording broadcast on CHRW 3/22/1982 from the Embassy Hotel. You’re So Square was the top 10 single that put Uranus on the Canadian musical map and even allowed them to travel to Vancouver to be on CBC television.  The Embassy was a hot spot form the mid 80’s onwards until closing and mysteriously burning to the ground not long after. London has an issue with former hot spots burning to the ground…ie The Brunswick Hotel.
      6. Uranus….Shake Some Action….from a live radio broadcast on CFNY 5/1980. CFNY was the first commercial radio station in Canada to play the punk/new wave thing when it started. Unfortunately you couldn’t receive their signal here in London. In the summer of 1978, 6X, the Fanshawe Radio station hoped on the bandwagon and started playing punk/new wave music!! That was a godsend for many of us! A year or so later CHRW started broadcasting over the TV cable network for part of London. I was lucky enough to live in the area that received CHRW! Many live shows were aired over CHRW, with DJ Simon Less (Peter J Moore who won a Grammy last year!) recording many of these live shows. You’d be at a show and see a white styrofoam head in the crowd with wires coming out of the ears. This is what Simon used to record the band.
      7. Jim Ashby….Speed City….from a 1970 7” that was re-released by Speed City Records a couple years back. In 1970 London was referred to as the speed capital of Canada, hence this amazing song by CJOE DJ Jim Ashby. You can grab a copy of this 7” from Speed City Records on Springbank Drive here in London.
      8. The Blackholes…..Superfreak….from a live recording at the Brunswick Hotel. The Brunswick was a hot spot from the late 80’s onwards and many a young combo was fermented here. Closed down a few years back and mysteriously burned to the ground right after closing. The Blackholes have been around for years, starting as Viv Sun and The Blackholes and show up at art openings every now and then. Guitarist Tom Hilborn is a well known visual artist.
      9. Osterberg…..London Eats Its Own….from a 10” record they released in 1993. This one is a who’s who collection of punk musicians and misfits.
      10. The Stoves….Just My Style….live recording from the Cedar Lounge circa 1979 and one of the bands that shoulda gone on to big things. Just listen to those harmony vocals. Drummer Greg Moore went on to play in…
      11. Sheep Look Up…..Burning….from their 1982 cassette and another London combo that should have and almost did make it. They did get play on Much Music, released an EP and were on the cusp of greatness….
      12. 63 Monroe….At The Boot….from a live recording aired on CHRW around 1980. The Boot refers to the Blue Boot, the previous name of The Cedar Lounge. 63 Monroe featured (and still does to this day) Steven R Stunning on lead vocals, a one time mayoral candidate and he even had a weekly music column in the London Free Press, our only daily rag.
      13. NFG…..Weekend Punx….from a live recording from the York Hotel. NFG stood for non-functioning gear or some reference to not that great. Steven R Stunning was vocalist for this combo and they morphed into 63 Monroe (there may have been a First Date along the way). The York Hotel is now known as Call The Office (with a stop at The Promised Land along the way) and is one of the best known rock’n’roll clubs in North America!! Some of the shows I’ve seen there include; The Cynics. Monomen, Das Furlines (probably the best show ever!!), Subhumans, DOA, Link Wray, The Sadies, Andre Williams, Dictators, Teenage Head, Forgotten Rebels, Paul Collins Beat and soooo many more! My fave club here in London!
      14. The Zellots….Soldiers…from a 1980 recording and our first punk/new wave combo to feature 3 females in the band! Another one of those band that coulda and shoulda but didn’t quite make the next step. They opened for John Cale (Velvet Underground) at Fryfogles here in London and he asked them to come to the UK to open a tour for him. The band couldn’t muster up the airfare and had to cancel.  But, The Zellots are about to release their first record next month! Some late 70’s recordings they did in Vancouver when they lived there for a year or so. More details on that real soon!
      15. Thundermug…..Africa…..1972 single that got radio airplay across Canada and helped put us on the musical map. The members of Thundermug are still active on the local music scene to this day!
      16. Larry Lea….Odd Man Out….from his mid 60’s LP on  Canatal Records. This is rockabilly music released when the Beatles are the second coming! Timing is everything in music luckily we have the Black Holes to cover this one! The song title surmises my life and should have been covered by The Cramps.
      17. Terminal Wallys….City Saviour….. from their New Old School CD from a few years back. Again, screwed up and played the wrong song, meant to play The East End, a tune about living east of Adelaide St but this song means just as much to London.


      Ran out of time, but certainly not things to talk about with Jason Dickson, nor London songs to play. One of the fastest 2 hours of my life and a pure joy to talk about London.

      You can pick up Jason Dickson and Vanessa Brown’s book. London 150 Cultural Moments at their bookstore, Brown and Dickson on Richmond St, at Chapters and most other cool book stores around! It’s a fun read for the reading room and brings out all kinds of trivia that you probably didn’t know.


      Back next week with Andrew from Running From Daylight (new local rockabilly combo) and some of the members of Hiroshima Hearts as we do the world premiere of their brand new 7” record!!! And they have a record release party set up for September 16th at the Aeolian Hall!
