Thanks for listening!

I know a SOCAN tracking period playlist when I see one...

best clever Canadian album cover of 2010?

I'll scan the (tiny but clever) Provincial Archives cover properly someday... when CJAM's copy is returned to the library... then you can see it and actually read it. Then you will know why all the boys in the picture have their eyes closed.
Uh... lots of missing CanCon favourites on this playlist, I know... an hour and a half of music is just a flash from the list I could've played.
All the local & Canadian stuff is available at Dr. Disc Records on Ouellette Avenue in Windsor. Plus music from everywhere else. And vinyl.
The Snark likes to tease about Canadian music, quotas vs. quality, etc. It amuses me somewhat. I'm intermittently conscious of how great and eclectic Canadian music can be. Ahem. Amen. Ahem.



  1. Great show today. If you're looking for music from Lost Patrol CJAM now has their full length album from 1988 and their Tell No Lies album in the local music section of our library. Both are on one CD.

    Revolution Rock

  2. Thanks Dave. I'll check it out. I noticed we both played Lost Patrol today. Nice show yourself, as always.
