You can listen to the show on amy MP3 player or through iTunes on your computer. iTunes is a free download, where you get podcasts for free (99% of them) or you can buy music. CBC Radio 3’s Podcast is free, and it showcases/plays the best in independant music in Canada. The thing that sets these guys apart though, is that they ACTUALLY know their stuff. They have it right. They play TONS of bands that tour Canada, making this country’s music scene what it is…without Nickelback, without Sum 41, and without other dumpy overblown Candian performers.
Check it out. It’s an awesome show, and they obviously know what they’re talking about if they are calling Phog an excellent venue in Windsor!
The best part…we wwere featured because we (Sean Barry and Tom) recorded Sean doing an impression of Grant Lawrence’s quirky speaking cadence. Grant e-mailed me asking if I could send him this nugget, and I jumped to his request…THEN I recorded Sean, and THEN I sent it to Radio 3 podcast. We waited, and Grant told me that we were too late. It would have to be aired on the next show. Well, it was certainly aired out to the hundreds (maybe thousands) of AMAZING bands and performers in Canada and we were actually chosen as stand-out winners of a Sirius Satellite Radio System! Phog will now be hooked up with all kinds of options for music, including the 24-hour CBC Radio 3 Station. We are watching our mailbox as we speak.
Even better, if you want to be true Phog fans, send these guys an e-mail to let them know how you feel about the music we lasso into Phog. Tell them they were correct to don some praise on this sleepy little music lounge in Windsor. E-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org
