Anyone else feel like kids should still be doing this?

Anyone else feel like kids should still be doing this?


It’s the last Wednesday of the month and at WPIT?!, that means two hours of listening to some really cool vinyl records with friends.

Since it’s the first Long-Play Wednesday of the year, we’re going to be getting into some classics including Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters, Digable Planets’ Blowout Comb and Stevie Wonder’s Songs In The Key Of Life. We’ll also be hearing some brand new music from Shugo Tokumaru and quite possibly Scott Walker as well.

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for some big, warm vinyl goodness.

Show #161 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen


Hey, did you catch the radio debut of Operation Manatee?

With the legendary Leonard Cohen coming to Regina, just a few months after playing Saskatoon, I figured it might be nice to put a picture of him up on today’s blog post. He’s still got it, folks. I saw him in Saskatoon. It was incredible – so good, in fact, that I bought tickets for the Regina show as soon as they went on sale! I highly recommend going, if you can.

Since he’s on my mind, I think I’ll play a few selections from his newest album. The whole show won’t be too folky, though. I promise. A few things you can expect are Joshua Redman covering Ornette Coleman, an 8-bit cover of Radiohead by Quinton Sung and some very flangey electronic madness from The Gaslamp Killer.

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for some great music.

Show #160 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Radiohead

Sometimes it feels like I’m living back-to-back Wednesdays. I barely notice the rest of the week and look at that!. It’s time to head to the radio station again! This week, it curiously isn’t so. For some reason it feels like I haven’t been in to host the show in months. I wonder if I’ve been experiencing time loss again… Stupid flux capacitor (otherwise known as rum)!

Anyway, now that I’ve cleared up that very important detail, allow me to invite you to tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for what will surely be the best show in months… since last week!

Show #159 (I think) Playlist, etc.

David Bowie

David Bowie


After last week’s mix of jazz and electronic music, I still have quite a few leftovers that I’d like to play (Paul Bley & Sonny Greenwhich, Michael Brecker, Aphex Twin, etc.). However, there is a lot of new stuff (and old stuff) I’m hoping to play as well. A friend reminded me yesterday that it was David Bowie’s birthday, so I’ve got a couple of deadly Bowie covers lined up. There are also some selections from my top five albums of 2012.

Overall, it should prove to be a typically disorienting and mixed sort of show.

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for all the fun.

Show #158 (I think) Playlist, etc. + Gelukkig Nieuwjaar Muziek

We made it! Hooray! All we had to do was go to sleep sometime between the beginning of the 31st of December, 2012 and the end of the 1st of Januaray, 2013 and there was suddenly a new year upon us! Good for us!

To celebrate this rare occasion, I’ve decided to do a showcase of the two (broad) types of music that I know best.

Tune in tonight. From 4:00 to 5:00, you’ll hear all “electronic music” (whatever that is); from 5:00 to 6:00, you’ll hear all “jazz” (at least things that may qualify as jazz in some circles). Just for kicks, I may even play tunes that have elements of both (oh my!).

You’ll love it, I promise… or double your money back.
