    • 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.

    • 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!!!

      1. Gruesomes…..What Wave…..from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood released by OG Records in 1989.
      2. Gruesomes….Someone Told A Lie…from the recent Gruesomes 7” that you can get via Ricochet Sound in Montreal.
      3. Roger C Reale and Rue Morgue….Rock It To The Kremlin….from the recent The Collection release on Rave On Records. 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!
      4. More Kicks…Your Vibration….from the Your Vibration release on Beluga Records and they are from Germany.
      5. 905s…Sub Zero…..from the recent Sub Zero release and they are from Brampton Ontario. Available at some Sunrise Record stores in Southern Ontario.
      6. Heap…No Mas…from the brand new release by this NYC based combo. They’ve been around since 1995 and this latest release is produced by Eric Rosco Amble.
      7. Creatures Of Condition…Heartaches….from an EP on Indy Tunz and they are from Windsor.
      8. Jacobites….Big Store….from the Robespierres Velvet Basement release from 1985 and goes out to Dave Kusworth who passed away last week.

      11. Mononegatives…. Sure Shot….from a recent 7” and from London Ontario.

      14. The Beat….There She Goes….from the 7” that came with the brand new Paul Collins book, I Don’t Fit In. The book is a great action packed read and reveals some interesting behind the scene information about the record industry.
      15. Breakaways…. Walking Out On Love….flip side of the above 7”
      16. Nerves….One Way Ticket….From the One Way Ticket release on Alive Natural Sound from 2008. This song and the next were supposed to be released by Bomp back in 1978 but it never happened as the band disintegrated.

      19. Downliners Sect… Why Don’t You Smile Now….from The Rock Sect’s In from 1966 and features Terry Gibson on buzzsaw lead guitar. Believe this was the first ever cover of this Lou Reed/John Cale song that pre-dates The Velvet Underground. This and the next song are dedicated to Terry who passed away recently.
      20. Downliners Sect… He Was A Square…. As above.
      21. Steel River….Southbound Train…..from their A Better Road release from 1970 and the rest of the show is all Canadian artists from the 70’s, pre-punk/new wave era.

Remember seeing a video for this on television when it came out in 1968 and couldn’t believe some of the pictures of what was happening in Detroit, which really isn’t that far away. 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.
      27. Stompin’ Tom Connors….Tillsonburg….from a 1971 7” on Boot Records. Tillsonburg is just down the road from London Ontario.

      32. Simply Saucer….I Can Change My Mind…from their debut release on Pig Records from 1978. Leader Edgar Breau has another solo release about to come out, Shadows Of Ecstasy and we’ll be playing a track or 2 on the October 12th edition of Radio WW.

    • September 9, 2020 3:51 PM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist September 7/2020
      Started this show with our regular complement of new releases, then submerged into Canadian powerpop/new wave from the late 70’s/early 80’s for the rest of the show.

      3. Bloodshot Bill….Cookout….from his latest longplayer, Get Loose Or Get Lost.
      4. Sin City…..Room 305….from their recent Sin City Or Bust release and from Spain via New Zealand.
      5.Krista D….Left  Of Me….recent release from Krista who is from Edmonton and is also a displaying visual artist/sculptor.
      6. Black Donnellys….Little Bit….local combo who just created a video of this song.
      7. TVD….Come On And Tell Me Off….local combo and this is a sampler from their upcoming release.
      8. Thunder Queens….Stereo Cat….local duo and from their only release on Yeah Right Records.
      9. Jenn Marino and the Hearts….Smoke….their latest release and there is a very cool video for this one.
      10. Muck and the Mires…One Way To Know….from the latest Rumbar compilation and from Boston.
      11. Marshmallow Overcoat….Wait For Her….their very last release as leader Timothy Gassen passed away last fall and is sadly missed by the 80’s/90’s garage band fans. The attached picture is of Marshmallow Overcoat when they played Call The Office here in London Ontario 4/11/1989.
      12. Jack Cades….Run Paulie Run….from their recent Perfect View release on Beluga Records and from the UK.
      13. Creatures of Condition…..Heartaches….from their recent release on Indy Tunz.
      14. Popular Spies….Chinatown….from a 1980 single and from Toronto. This is the start of our Canadian late 70’s/early 80’s special.
      15. Numbers….Won’t You Call…from their 1979 release, Add Up and from Toronto.
      16. Hifis….Look What You’ve Done….from a 1980 single and 2 of the members went on to form Blue Rodeo.
      17. The Shakers….California….from a1983 single and features Dave Rave on vocals/guitar and from Hamilton.
      18. Mods…. Step Out Tonight….from a 1978 release and from Toronto. Drummer David Quinton went on to work with Stiv Bators and was in a late version of the Dead Boys.
      19. Popular Mechanix….Ice Box City….from their debut long player and from Winnipeg 1980.
      20. Pointed Sticks….Destitute….from their Part of The Noise compilation that included several tracks, including this one, that were supposed to be on their ill fated Stiff Records long player.
      21. B Sides….Underground Radio Stars….from their1981 single and from Vancouver. This song could be about many of the featured acts on this episode.
      22. Metros…Don’t Like It At All….from the Vancouver Independence release from 1981.
      23. Metros….In With The Crowd….as above. Don’t know anything about Vancouver’s Metros, but these 2 songs are powerpop gems!
      24. Droogs….JKO….as above, from the Vancouver Independence release from 1981.
      25. Secret V’s…Modern Boy….from a 1980 release and features Ray Condo (listed as Radial) on the bass. Many years ago, I asked Ray what he remembered about playing the Cedar Lounge (circa 1980) and all he could remember was how scummy the upstairs rooms which housed the bands were.
      26. Modernettes….Rebel Kind….from their View From The Bottom release from 1982 and from Vancouver.
      27. Diodes….Red Rubber Ball….from their self titled longplayer and from 1977 which I believe was the first punk/new wave longplayer by a Canadian combo.
      28. Secrets….I’ll Cry Tomorrow… from their Teenage Rampage release and from Toronto 1979. 3 former Viletones and a former Diode form what should have been a combo that broke out big time.
      29. Zoom….School Girl Hitchiker….recorded in 1978 but not released until 2016 on the Ugly Pop imprint Sweet Desperation release. From Toronto and this combo pre-dates the rest of the punk/new wave explosion. It was basically a duo of John Hamilton (Diodes, Secrets and others) and Chris Haight (Viletones, Secrets and more) and they only released a 7” in the band’s lifetime.
      30. The Sharks….Get Off The Radio….from the Toronto compilation No Pedestrians that came out in 1980.
      31. Winston Hancock….Girls Girls….. as above and have no info on Winston.
      32. B Girls….B Side….from their 1979 Bomp single and from Toronto. Londoner Marcy Saddy drummed on this one, and this is one of those bands that coulda and shoulda, but it just didn’t happen. They made the move to NYC, opened for the Clash and many other big names but just couldn’t make the next career step.
      33. Maniacs and Cadillacs….Drastic Measures….from their 1980 debut long player that is supposed to be re-ished shortly. And from Toronto.
      34. The Ugly….Stranded In The Laneway….from their 1978 single and radically different from their loud, wild and somewhat violent live shows.
      35. Onits….Weekend Wrestler….1980 single and have no info on this combo. Picked this one up at Star Records many years ago.
      36. Government….Sponge…..from their 1979 release and from Toronto. One of my fave Canadian bands from this era. Most of their songs would be considered art punk and later they moved in a more funk direction before disbanding.
      37. BB Gabor….Nyet Nyet Soviet….from a 1980 release and from Toronto. This one got a lot of airplay here on CHRW back when it was released.
      38. Stoves….Can’t Slow Down….live recording from 1979 of this local combo.
      Thanx to all that took the time to tune in and listen.
      Next week is an all London Ontario show, as London Music Week runs from September 13 to 20. We’ll be playing some of the amazing local acts that are in our London Music Hall Of Fame (Demics, Sheep Look Up, Uranus, 63 Monroe and more), as well as some of the acts that are nominated for awards.
