      25. MX80 Sound….Christmas With The Devil…..from the We’re An American Band CD from 2005. MX80 Sound were a protopunk combo that was grouped in with metal combos for some odd reason and recorded on the Gulcher label mentioned above.

They play Europe fairly often and have released several records in Germany….not bad for an Ontario band from a little hick town!!
      27. The Rooks…..Christmas….from a 1992 demo CD they sent us many years ago.
      28. Roger Zuraw…..I’m In Love and It’s Christmas….from his 2005 CD There’s Life Then There’s Song. Roger is from Etobicoke and a regular listener.

      Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, facebook messages and Heys!!!  Back again next week with a short special on drummer Marky Keigan (Purple Toads, El Speedo, Crummy Stuff, Boneyard Devils) who passed away last week.

      23. Bloodshot Bill and Shannon…..True….from a recent 7” on the Slovenly Label and just love the way both Shannon and Bill have that growl in their voices on this one! It’d be great to hear a full length release from this pair!
      24. Dion….The Wanderer….from a Greatest Hits compilation and originally from 1961.
      25. Gary US Bonds….I Wanna Holler….from a 1980’s 7”, but originally recorded back in the early 60’s and wasn’t released till this 7” came out.

      30. The Smithereens….Blood And Roses….from the Especially For You LP, but we played the 12” version for you as it has a better bass mix…..or it’s just that the wider grooves on 12” EP’s generally have better overall sound.
      31. The Smithereens….Wall Of Sleep…from the Especially For You LP and my absolute fave Smithereens tune with its vivid lyrical imagery!
      32. The Smithereens….Only A Memory…from the Green Thoughts LP from 1988.

    • December 8, 2017 8:10 PM CST
    • Radio What Wave Playlist December 8/2017. All Women’s Voices….Soul/R&B/Funk/Blues/Jazz


      All women led bands on today’s show as this week is the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, which happened Dec 6 1989. Every year CHRW does a full day of all women’s voices to commemorate and we do our special show the week of… And this year, with special permission of Pam, our Program Director here at CHRW, we went the soul/R&B/funk/Blues/jazz route and tried to high light a few of the many highly influential women led combos. So many more we shoulda played as we had so many requests for cool stuff that we didn’t bring in….next time!! And a HUGE thanx for all the requests, phone calls, emails and FB messages as we were overwhelmed and couldn’t get to some of the phone calls!


      1. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings….What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes….from a compilation called Soul Cellar on the Metra Doubles label assimilated by noted soul DJ Peter Young.
      2. Betty Harris….Ride Your Pony...also from the above comp, and an Allen Toussaint production, this one’s also been covered by RWW faves The Fleshtones, a band that truly understands this music!
      3. Bonnie and Sheila….You Keep Me Hangin’ On….from the compilation New Orleans Funk Volume 2 on the Soul Jazz Records label. Not to be confused with The Supremes tune of the same name, this is some mighty fine New Orleans funk/soul. The Soul Jazz label has put out many fine re-ishes and compilations of not only soul and funk, but some of the finest reggae and rock steady tunes as well!
      4. Jean Knight….Mr Big Stuff….from the Stax Soul Sisters compilation LP and this song is from 1971, near the end of life for Stax Records. Stax released/recorded some of the finest soul and R&B from the late 50’s to early 70’s and were responsible for beginning the careers of such legends as Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Booker T and The MG’s, Carla Thomas and so many more!
      5. Jackie Shane….Sticks and Stones….from the recent Any Other Way double LP compilation of most of Jackie’s recorded legacy. This one came out quite recently and is among my fave records of 2017 and has a superb booklet written by Grammy winner Rob Bowman that details Jackie’s legacy in more depth than ever! This one’s worth it for the liner notes alone!
      6. Jackie Shane….Any Other Way… as above, and this was the most played song on CHUM AM for many years, starting in the early 60’s. Jackie even played Campbells here in London as detailed in the liner notes.
      7. Shirley Matthews….Big Town Boy….from the Made In Canada Volume 1 compilation and this was a big AM hit for Shirley back in 1965.
      8. Condition….Fever….from their Red Hot and Blue LP from 1986 on AMOK Records out of Montreal. Condition appeared on a couple of OG Records compilations and we remember going to see them at Call The Office here in London back when the record came out. Where the dance floor is had tables and chairs with people sitting on them, finger snaps, berrets, long cigarettes and a typical jazz crowd, way different than the rock crowd we were part of!
      9. Aretha Franklin…..I Never Loved A  Man….1966 demo recording that was recorded by here then husband, to try and convince Atlantic Records to sign her. Jerry Wexler would have been a fool to not, as this demo gives me goosebumps listening to it as Aretha takes it way past another level! Truly fucking amazing and this is from a Rhino double CD compilation called Rare and Unreleased Recordings From The Golden Reign Of The Queen Of Soul. The title is absolutely correct!
      10. Nina Simone…..Mississippi Goddam….from the Definitive Collection CD and this song is from 1964. Nina was recently on the list of possible inductees into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame and didn’t make it….neither did Link Wray.  What the fuck is a Jovi Bon????
      11. Koko Taylor…Wang Dang Doodle…from the compilation LP called Chess Sisters Of Soul Volume 1 and the song that Koko is best known for. 1965 recording.
      12. Ruth Brown….Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean….from the Charly Records compilation called Rockin’ With Ruth. 1952 recording from the Atlantic Records label.
      13. Fontella Bass…..Rescue Me….from the above Chess Sisters Of Soul Volume 1 and goes out to our pal Roger Zuraw. This is a 1965 recording and this song has been covered by many.
      14. Gloria Jones….Tainted Love….1965 recording of the song that Soft Cell made into a huge hit many years later. Written by Ed Cobb who was heavily involved with The Standells and Chocolate Watch band among others, this song was a big dance number on the Northern Soul circuit.
      15. Yvonne Fair…. I Found You….1962 recording from the compilation You Heard It Hear First on the Ace label. Produced by James Brown, and on King Records (same label as JB) this song later surfaced with the changed lyrics and title of I Got You and was a HUGE hit for JB.
      16. The Aristocrats….Don’t Go….1974 recording on a compilation called Sister Funk. This whole comp has some amazing 60’s/70’s funk and if you’re a fan, is well worth searching out.
      17. Big Ella….Too Hot To Hold….from the above compilation and a 1969 recording….sent this one out to Hiroshima Heart Jenn Marino!
      18. Big Maybelle….One Monkey Don’t Stop The Show….from the double OKEH Sessions LP on Epic Records. 1954 recording featuring one of my fave guitar players, Mickey Baker! We’ll be hearing more of Mickey’s licks a little later on the show!
      19. Sister Rosetta Tharpe…..Up Above My Head There’s Music In The Air….from the Gospel Train LP on Wing Records. Another artist that was on the list of possible inductees into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame and didn’t make it….so just what the fuck is a Jovi Bon? Check out any of Sister Rosetta’s videos on Youtube and watch those fingers fly on the fretboard.
      20. Margie Day….Take Out Your False Teeth Daddy….from the Jumpin’ The Blues Volume 2 compilation on Ace Records. 1953 recording on Decca Records and was probably considered fairly risqué back then.
      21. Tiny Davis…..How About That Jive….from the Jumpin’ The Blues Volume 1 compilation on Ace Records. 1949 recording and Tiny lead an all female big band and she opened a club in Chicago called Tiny and Ruby’s Gay Spot with her partner and trumpet player Ruby. The club was in Chicago from the early to late 50’s when it was torn down to make way for a freeway.
      22. Etta James….Tough Lover…..from a Greatest Hits CD and a 1956 recording.
      23. Etta James….Something’s Got A Hold Of Me…..1961 recording from the same CD and on Chess Records.
      24. Mickey and Sylvia….No Good Lover…..1956 recording from the Do It Again LP and Mickey is Mickey Baker. Mickey got tired of the racism in America and moved to France where he lived out the rest of his life.
      25. Ike And Tina…..It’s Gonna Work Out Fine…..1961 recording on the Best Of Sue Records compilation.
      26. Loading Zone….I Can’t Please You….from the 1968 budget compilation called Groupquake on RCA Records. In 1968 I couldn’t afford many records, so this one at either .99 or .49 was a bargain that I still own to this day. This track has always been a fave of mine with it’s tough as nails vocals and horn section.
      27. Linda Lyndell….What A Man….from a Stax Records compilation for the 50th Anniversary of Stax Records.
      28. Betty LaVette….It Ain’t Easy….from the 1972 LP, Child Of The Seventies. Betty is still touring a putting out records since she was a teenager in the early 60’s.
      29. Ikettes….I’m Blue….1962 recording on the Atlantic Rhythm And Blues Compilation Volume 4.
      30. Annette Peacock….My Mama Never Taught Me How To Cook….from the 1979 LP X-Dreams. And this is the very first white woman singer on this edition of Radio WW.
      31. Julie Driscoll….Season Of The Witch….from the Genesis LP with Brian Auger from 1974 and we had to fade this out as time ran out….


      Huge Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, FB messages and Heys as we had so many on this show….back again next week with lots of new stuff.
