    • Tonight is my favorite Holiday and I will be playing two sets of songs dedicated to it. Halloween? F*ck no! It is DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME. Any idiot DJ can come up with Halloween songs, but it takes a stupendous idiot like me to play songs about Daylight Savings Time.
      While you contemplate what you will be doing with your bonus hour tonight, listen to The Jeff of the Future Show from Noon-2:00PM EST. Just tune your radio dial to 89.7 WITR-FM in Rochester, NY or stream it live from the link at There may be a few Halloween songs too.

    • Radio What Wave November 23/2020 UIC Special


      This was a special on the band UIC and its various offshoot bands. UIC was supposed to be doing a live show at the Horseshoe the Saturday after this show aired, but it was postponed until January due to covid.  The show is arranged chronologically and there many more songs I wanted to include but due to time constraints this is what you get. 

      This show is pre-recorded about a week prior to airing as we don’t have access to the CHRW studios, again due to covid. Everything you hear on these shows is tossed together in my makeshift home ‘studio’ and all material comes from my collection.


      1. Gruesomes….What Wave…from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood release from 1989 on  OG Records. UIC was also on this release.
      2. UIC….Superstar….from the recent FM Hill release and what better way to get things rolling.
      3. UIC…Telephone….recorded live 3/16/1985 at Call The Office, London Ontario. There might be video of this one as well as the next tune.
      4. UIC…. Instrumental….as above.
      5. UIC….When I’m Crazy….recorded live at St Stephens Hall 6/15/1985. This was our wedding bash and also playing that night were 3D Invisibles from Detroit and London’s Boy From Nowhere.
      6. UIC….I Got Nerve…from a cassette labelled First Demo 1986
      7. UIC….Cheap Generation….as above. This cassette was given to us by one of the members of UIC back then.
      8. UIC…Who’ll Start The End….from a cassette labelled Accusonic December 1985, and again given to us by the band. This song was also on Garunge, the cassette that came with What Wave zine #14 and released December 1987.
      9. UIC….Honest Can’t Survive…from the same cassette as above.
      10. Crop Dustin’….from the Our Garage release from 1986.
      11. UIC….You’re Gonna Miss Me….recorded live at Bullwinkles, London Ontario 2/14/1986. Also on the bill that night were the Purple Toads and making their London debut, Shark Graffiti (with their original singer and the only time we saw the band with him).
      12. UIC….Neat Neat Neat….recorded at Lee’s Palace, Toronto 6/28/1986
      13. UIC…Struck By An Once Of Madness…. recorded live at Les Fou Fonnes (sp?) in Montreal and probably on the same bill as The Gruesomes.
      14. UIC…. Cracked Actor….recorded live at Key West, London Ontario 11/6/1987
      15. UIC….Livin’ In The  Past….from the Live Like 90 release and recorded live at Lee’s Palace 11/4/1988
      16. UIC….Outta Hand….from The Wiseman Session, released in 2016 but should have come out in 1989.  If this had been released as planned, things might have been a bit different for UIC.
      17. UIC….Outta Hand….as above. Wiseman Sessions is easily my fave UIC release!
      18. UIC….The Grey and the Black….recorded live at CTO 7/14/1990.
      19. UIC….400 Blows… as above.
      20. UIC…Is It My Body….recorded live at CTO 2/16/1991


      1. UIC…. Poor Boy….from the Witches In Credible release from 1993 and the only UIC full length to not come out on vinyl, or be re-issued.
      2. UIC….It’s Alright….as above
      3. UIC….Do You Wanna Go?...from the Johnny Hanson Presents Puck Rock Volume 1 from 1994.
      4. Positively Stompin’…Little Bit Longer….from the 1994 Junk Drawer release. This was Teddy (RIP) and Murray’s combo that started as Possibly Stompin’, doing all Stompin’ Tom covers and evolved into a real band. PS is one of those bands that coulda and shoulda, but for some reason it didn’t happen. They had real management, a unique sound/style, appeared on television a number of times, got radio play and did showcase live shows.
      5. El Speedo….Rock’n’Roll Explosion…..probably from the El Speedo cassette (this might be a different version than is on the cassette) and features Dave on lead vocals.
      6. El Speedo…Speed… as above.
      7. Chickens…. White Squirrel Town….from the 2000 release Prepare To Plug In. Another of those bands that coulda and shoulda but it just didn’t happen. They made the trek to Cleveland to battle it out for Little Steven’s Garage Band awards and came in second.
      8. Chickens….Heart That Bleeds…from the 2003 Bring It On release.
      9. Smokestack Lightning….Volcano….from a 2003 demo and features Murray on the tubs, Roger Toad on bass, Paul Toad on bass and vocals on one other member.
      10. UIC….Mystery Train….from the recent FM Hill release and a long time UIC tune written by Richard Carstens. The Chickens used to do a really long drawn out version of this one, but there wasn’t time on the show to include it.
      11. UIC….Honest Can’t Survive….as above, from FM Hill
      12. UIC…Thunder From The Left…. As above….RIP Danny
      13. UIC…..Richard May… above and RIP to Dick. Dick was one of the constants at the Cedar Lounge but never actually met him until we ran into each other at a Demics show in Toronto in early 1981.

      Had a blast putting this one together, digging through all the live and demo cassettes and actually being able to find them! And this show goes out to Danny, Teddy and Dick!!

      Thanx to all that took the time to listen. And Huge Thanx for all the comments, messages, emails, and Heys!!!

      Back again next Monday at 6PM with another edition of Radio What Wave.

      3. Chris Jacks…Train Of Thought…from his brand new Miles To Go release. Chris normally spews out wild psychedelia or fuzzed out 60’s garage punk with his Japan based combo The Routes. His latest is way different, acoustic and laid back, but there’s still something lurking there.

      6. Vicious Dreams….Matter Of Time….from an upcoming release and based in Florida.
      7. Andy Butler and the Isolators…Down In The Basement…Andy put out the word he was looking for others to record during the pandemic, and this is the result! Reminds me of Teenage Head and that ain’t a bad thing around these parts. Peter Hudson played and put this all together, and speaking of…

      16. Warren Smith….Rock and Roll Ruby….from the Legendary Performer release and this song came from 1956 and recorded at Sun.

      17. Charlie Feathers…I Forgot To Remember To Forget….from the Rockabilly’s Main Man release from 1979 and Stan co-wrote this one with Charlie. Elvis made a hit of this song.
      18. Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs….Mystery Train….from their 1966 Greatest Hits release which Stan produced and most likely it was his idea to take this rockabilly song and give it a Bo Diddly beat.
      19. Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs….Li’L Red Riding Hood…as above with Stan Kesler producing.
      20. James Carr…The Dark End Of The Street….from his 1968 A Man Needs A Woman release which Stan engineered.

      30. Lonesome Ghost….Haunted By God….from their self titled cassette that came out on Record Store Day in 2011. From Aylmer Ontario and don’t hold that against them as both members have long since moved to London.

      35. Thunderqueens….Bulldozer….from their recent release on Yeah Right! Records and this duo lives here in London Ontario.

    • Playlist For Radio What Wave October 5 2020, Tribute To Al Cole


      This edition is a special tribute to Al Cole who passed away this spring. Al moved to London approx. 1980 and from there did everything from; create posters (over 30 in Graphic Underground: London 1977-1990), was one of the first DJ’s on CHRW with his Young Fast And Scientific radio show, booked shows, managed The Hippies, sang in The Bloodbrothers, started What Wave zine and so much more!! And that was just diring his approx. 4 years while living in London and going to school!

       Prior and afterwards he was an employee at Star Records in Oshawa, helper at the Star Club, created posters and so much more!!! And his vast knowledge and enthusiasm about music was never ending and contagious!! Turned so many on to great music that most of us still appreciate to this day!

      This one’s for you Al!


      1. Gruesomes…..What Wave…..from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood and lately been our show opener.
      2. Flamin’ Groovies….Shake Some Action….from the 12” EP from 1976.  First heard the Groovies on the radio on Al’s fantastic Young Fast And Scientific Radio Show. We’d read about the Groovies in Cream, Trouser Press, New York Rocker, Trouser Press and all those other rock mags, but they’d never play them on the radio!
      3. Panther Burns….She’s The One That’s Got It….from Behind The Magnolia Curtain release from 1981 and another band Al introduced me to. Panther Burns played Fryfogles here in London right around this time and it was great!
      4. Zantees….Please Give Me Something….from their 1980 Out For Kicks release and another that Al intro-ed me to via the radio show. They finally make it to London in 1990 under the new name of The A Bones.
      5. Zellots….On The Dole….from a 1980 practice and a band that Al did many posters for.
      6. Shakin’ Jack and the Rattlesnake Jakes….Ice Cream Man…from the Domestic Animals release and another band that Al did many posters for.
      7. Hippies….How You Gonna Live…from their 1982 7” and Al was their manager.
      8. Hippies…Simple Song….demo from 7/22/1983 and as above.
      9. Gun Club….Sex Beat….from their 1981 Fire Of Love release and Al and company interviewed the band in What Wave #3.
      10. The Shakers….Out The Door….from a 1979 7” and another combo that Al interviewed in What Wave #3. Dave Rave, now vocalist for Teenage Head was in the band and part of the interview.
      11. Tom Wilson and the Florida Razors….NYC….from an early 80’s 7” and the band was interviewed in What Wave #3.
      12. Durango 95….Lorraine….from their 1983 Lose Control release. Al was a huge fan of D95 as they came from Oshawa, his home town. Remember Al brought them into Cultural House (part of the Embassy Hotel here in London) and they put on a great show, but delayed as the opening band, The Catch didn’t want to quit playing and let Durango on to do their show.
      13. X….The Unheard Music….from their 1980 Los Angeles release and somehow appropriate as Al loved the obscure and cool music that rarely made the radio. X were interviewed in WW #4.
      14. Feast Of The Mau Maus….Feast Of The Mau Maus….recorded live at Joe Kools by Tim McLaughlin and were interviewed in What Wave #4.
      15. Carolyn and the Wayouts…How You Gonna Know….home recording with Al on vocals and probably Bryan Young on bass. No idea who else was involved in this.
      16. Bill Barr…..At The Brunswick….Al under his alias that he used in What Wave (and probably other places) in which he would discuss the merits of the older taverns and hotels of downtown. This was documented in many issues of What Wave zine over the years.
      17. Deja Voodoo…Monsters In My Garager…from their 1982 7” records. It was at a DV show at the Victoria (here in London Ontario) that Al passed over the reins of WWzine to myself and Rena. And not longer after this (Sept 1984) Al moved back to his hometown of Oshawa.
      18. Deja Voodoo…Big Scary Daddy….from their 1984 Cemetery release. DV were huge supporters of WW over the years.
      19. Boy From Nowhere…..I Need You….recorded live at the Brunswick mid 80’s.  Al was in The Bloodbrothers as vocalist, when he decided to leave, Jon Traut came in and the band was re-named Boy From Nowhere.
      20. Jon Traut…..talking about The Brunswick
      21. Purple Toads….Gonna Have A Good Time….live recording at the Star Club from 10/12/1985 and Al was most likely present at this show.
      22. Raunch Hands….Ford….from a live recording at the Star Club 10/12/1985 and Al was definitely at this show as he shows up in a picture or two.
      23. Charlie Pickett and the Eggs….American Travelust….recorded live at the Star Club 2/9/1985 and Al was most likely at this show.
      24. Charlie Pickett and the Eggs....Meigs County... as above
      25. Cheshyres….I Think It’s Gonna Work Out Fine….recorded live at the Star Club 9/20/1986 and Al was most likely at this show.
      26. Smithereens….Groovy Tuesday….recorded live at The Star Club 3/22/1986. Pretty sure Al shows up in a picture from this show. This was Smithereens second show in Canada, the previous night they played in Toronto. And this was right before their international breakout!
      27. Smithereens….Beauty and Sadness….as above. Should mention The Smithereens had a replacement guitar player for these 2 shows as their regular guitar mangler Jim Babjak couldn’t make it for some reason.
      28. Evan Johns and the H Bomb…..Instrumental….recorded live at the Star Club recorded 6/11/1988. Al was definitely at this show.
      29. Starkweather….Aluminum Baseball Bat…from the 1993 release This Band Has Seconds To Live and No Foregiveness To Spare. Local combo featuring Simon Oates who has some really nice quotes about Al in the Wooly Toque fanzine dedicated to Al.
      30. Brown Hornets….South Oshawa Drug Mule…from their self titled release from 2007 and another of the local bands that Al supported. We got to see Brown Hornets a couple of times and they were fantastic live!
      31. Bradley Boy…Old 59…from his 2011 Salt Gun release and another local artist that Al helped out. Bradley Boy was one of the artists who played at Mike Shulga’s Memorial Show in Oshawa. Sadly, that show was the last time we saw Al.
      32. Catl….Outlaw Blues…..from their 2009 first release that Al and his wife Dana put out on their record label Coletrain Music. Catl have appeared many many times here in London over the years. Radio WW was the first to bring them in, long before we knew about the Al Cole connection. Guess we learned well from Al.
      33. Catl….Ragged and Dirty….. as above.


      Thanx to all that tuned in!! And Thanx for all the fantastic feedback for this one!!! This one is for Al Cole, wherever you are, hope you dug the show!!!


      On next week’s episode, we’ll play a couple more tracks recorded with Al singing. We’ll have The Clumps (short lived band in which Al was singer and Rob Sweeney played guitar) and Al and Lindsay Young doing a couple tunes. Huge Thanx to Rob and Lindsay for digging out these ancient tapes!!!

This is a compilation of Radio Active (released in 1978) and Reptiles in Motion (recorded in 1978 and never released) and is some mighty fine late 70’s Stiff sounding power pop!! Digging this one so much, it’s been stuck in my CD player for days!

This song was banned in 30 states when released.
      26. Murray McLauchlan….Linda Take Me In….from the live Only The Silence Remains release from 1975. This one was banned locally on CFPL AM as some of the lyrics may have been about Deep Throat, a porn movie that somehow achieved mainstream attention when released.

    • Hi everyone

      We've just released our debut single in which we were aiming to mix the sound of 60s American acid rock (such as the 13th Floor Elevators), and the harsh garage rock sound of the 'British Invasion', on top of having old school sunken lo-fi production and drenched in reverb. Let us know what you make of it

      Music Video:

      We plan to have a limited vinyl pressing of an upcoming EP by next year sometime.
