      Radio What Wave Playlist April 13/2018


      Another all London playlist as we’re deep into the week of celebrations/shows/events of The Jack Richardson Music Week here in London Ontario. We come to the climax on Sunday night at the awards ceremony at London Music Hall. Hope to see some of you there!

      But we started this week with a non-London interview, Son Of Dave, infamous one man blues band, who just happened to be playing at the London Music Club that eve. Son Of Dave’s music has been used in many television shows, online adverts, he’s opened for The Stooges and done so much more! Even won a Juno Award in his  previous combo, Crash Test Dummies!

      1. Son Of Dave….Lust For Life…from the Son Of Dave Plays 13 Explosive Hits CD.
      2. Nervousmen….Joy Decision….from a recent download and these guys have a show on April 21 at Call The Office.
      3. Black Holes….Miss Pearl….live recording from the long gone Brunswick Hotel. This is the start of our London rockabilly set. Black Holes feature local artist and guitar wizard Tom Hilborn. You can catch Tom’s paintings in various galleries around the city.
      4. Viv Sun and the Black Holes….Train Kept A Rollin’….1996 demo recording of the old Tiny Bradshaw tune. Tom Hilborn was also the guitarist in this combo that evolved into just the Black  Holes. Black Holes do play around once in a blue moon, and always put on great shows!
      5. Larry Lee and the Leesures….Odd Man Out….from their self titled LP from around 1965. Rockabilly in 1965 was a step out of time as was this song. Coulda and maybe shoulda been covered by The Cramps, instead, the Black Holes covered it at live shows.
      6. Running From Daylight….Mary Jane….new demo from this local psychobilly/rbilly combo that is keeping the sound alive in London. So ends our rockabilly set.
      7. Condo Christ….Weekend Alcoholic…from the London Underground LP, the first CHRW LP compilation of London bands. CHRW has released at least 5 compilations of local combos and we’re playing a song from 5 of them. The 5th is a cassette, that is inside the Jack Richardson Music Hall Museum as part of a local cassette display.
      8. Frankenstein 5….It’s A Cryin’ Shame….from the London Underground Dig Deeper CD from 1994. F5 were the only exclusive 60’s garage combo to come out of London. They appeared on a couple of WW cassettes and also released their own cassette, recorded right here at CHRW.
      9. Salmon Blaster….Chomalungma…from the London Underground 3 CD from 1995. Salmon Blaster are re-uniting for one show at Call The Office tonite as part of the Jack Richardson London Music week.
      10. Don’t Touch The Dancers….Make Me Sick….from the LDN CD, the latest CHRW compilation.
      11. Mountain Of Wolves….Don’t Call My Name….from their Poison LP and they will be playing on Sunday night as part of the award ceremonies at the London Music Hall.
      12. Randall Pee Coltrane….Just A Heartbeat….from the recent Atomic Love Burrito CD and we had Randall live onair a couple weeks back.
      13. Shakey Jack….I Can’t See You No More….from the Demics Covers CD put out by Nick Perry, original Demic drummer.
      14. Pogo Pete….Life Is A Crazy Passion….as above and a summation of the summer of 77/78 here in London Ontario.
      15. UIC….How Deep Is Your Love….recorded live at Bullwinkles 2/14/1986 and goes out to bass player Dan Preszcator who passed away 2 weeks ago. Bullwinkles was also called Kellys Boogie Parlour, Hard Times, Salt Lounge and probably a couple other names. The building is still standing (with external support) so grab a picture while you can.
      16. The Hippies….How You Gonna Live….from the early 80’s. The picture sleeve for this one, as well as a TON of other London 7” records is on display at the Jack Richardson London Music Museum at 182 Dundas St, the old Nash Jewellers store front.
      17. Jane Doe….There’s A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis….teamwork as musicians from various combos got together to put this one out.
      18. B Girls…. B Side….from the Bomp label from 1979 and features Marcy Saddy on the tubs.
      19. The Zellots….Let’s Play House….from their 1978 Vancouver recordings with Heather Haley on vocals. After doing this, they moved back to London and reformed with a new drummer and vocalist.
      20. Cordcalling….When I Scream….from the CD of the same name.
      21. Pacanomad….Heaven Can Wait….from the Restless CD.
      22. Baby Giant…..High Tide….from the Baby Giant 2 download and they were in the CBC contest a few weeks back.
      23. The Fine Print….Last Night…from the Standing Out CD and they released a cassette on the WW label.
      24. Fiends….Never Old…from the brand new Easy Does It CD and they will be playing at Old East 765 tonite.
      25. Terminal Wallys…..East End….from the New Old School CD and all about the east end of this city.
      26. TVD….I’d Kiss You Honey But You’re Standing On My Bottom Lip…from the Salvation Through Distraction CD.
      27. Finks….Can’t Say No….from their only 7” from the mid 80’s and features bass player Pete Feend who is still playing to this day.


      Thanx to Son Of Dave for taking the time to call in. Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, FB messages and texts!! And all the kind words!! That’s what keeps us going!!!

      You can often find me at the Jack Richardson Music Musuem on Saturday afternoons, helping the curator, Rena get things done. There’s a few displays that will be of special interest to listeners of Radio WW and we just received some new stuff yesterday from the big band era. Johnny Downs was a HUGE influence to the local big band and jazz scene through his restaurant, The Latin Quarter.


      Back again next week with a bit more local stuff from the past and lots of new stuff!
