I was able to tag or note pretty much *ALL* of the tracks while listening to the show on Sunday, June 27th.. yes.. a geeky 2x. There are perks to PST ;)

The show was a little bit different again this week, as it was a re-hash/re-mix of two interviews/show take-overs that George had "bands" do in the past ~2 months.

We had Gord Downie return to the show, as well as the illustrious Band of Horses (wow.. the chat was crazy that night I tell you)!

The Gord Downie interview segment originally aired on May 23rd.. and as you *may* note.. that is one of the rare mising playlists that I haven't put up yet.

Reason being.. that was the week that George and The Hour were out here in Vancouver, and so.. I was a bit (ok MEGA) distracted and all and didn't have any time to do it. I guess I'll get that segment down at least this time for this playlist and I'll back-track later & finish up the May 23rd one sometime soon(-ish).

The other interview that was featured on Sunday, June 27.. on our "end of season" and highlights show I guess you could call it.. was Band of Horses.

Now Band of Horses stopped by back on May 16, 2010... which wasn't ALL that long ago, but it was an enjoyable 'lil' interview/chat. AND.. good news, that playlist is up over here at: May 16, 2010: The Strombo Show Playlist (& G12 Count Down), so since I'll be stealing from myself to port it on over here.. hence, what I tried to get up first was some of the other tracks played this past Sunday.. since you can go look there for their segment. Sound like a plan?

And also.. keep in mind.. there was NO G12 Count Down again this night!

We had sorta thought we heard (we being myself & the Strombo Show Chat Crew) that it was going to return this week.. but instead it appears that this show may have been the last of the few blood for a while.

I know.. I know.. I'm in new music withdrawal too.. guess I have to find some time to #tapAvein & go read some new music blogs.. I'll see what I can post here if we are into repeats, as I might be able to get some old... OLD.. playlists up.. *gasp* and well.. go to the beach on Sunday afternoons instead of hosting the chat! Novel idea.. huh! (Thanks George.. that's really sweet of you to think of that... haha.)

I'm still going to see if I can get some sneak peeks or hints for us.. but I have to find some time to email the boys.. and then.. they actually have to email me back.. oh wait.. sorry.. I'm laughing.. as that is not likely.. Darby, George.. bucky.. how about it eh? ;)

So, as I mentioned..the show on Sunday, June 27, 2010 was a montage of interviews, some new stuff, but also.. NO Bob or Rich... But we did see a bell chime at the Ten o'Clock Hour with Mr. Tom Waits.. and a few tracks that used to be in the G12 were floating around in the playlist.

[ As for the rest of the updates... stay tuned...

I may still do a "Highlights & Excerpts section" but will see how it goes w/all the repeat-ish stuff in here. ]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All tracks played on the show are in: Blue and Bold!
So they are easy to view/find/read on the page with all the other notes. Hope that helps! Feedback welcome!

Any Errors and/or Omissions are totally my fault!
IF.. you have any corrections or info that I'm missing, please comment or ping me & I'll update the blog list!
Thanks.
Enjoy.

AND.. as always.. Feedback, comments, notes, etc are ALWAYS welcome!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** And please note.. while there has been a few mini-updates posted over at The Strombo Show Website.... but George is now down in LA (or as I call it Lala-land) on vacation and apparently working on some other "projects".

Darby the main producer/God (or at least I think he is.. the main producer of the Strombo Show.. not God.. yeesh.) for the Strombo Show is also off & away for the summer, so I'm guessing it's unlikely that they'll get much in the way of updates etc, while the boyz are on "summer break"!

And it doesn't look like they took my offer to update if for them if they like maybe gave me the passwords & FTP access to the site(s) & oh PAY me.. LOL.
Ha.. ya right eh?!

Hmmmm.. here's a theory.. it could be why those shows aren't up on the website.. as we'll be hearing them again. Crossing my fingers that they do get up after a round two showing tho, as there are a few shows in my lovin' it list.

If I get around to it and have some time I may also get some other goodies up here other than playlists for y'all.. but you have to be really nice to me and like feed me cookies and things if you want that ;)

So.. I "may" share some tidbits from George's road-trip later if I find time to put together another post in the next few weeks.. but you can always check out his Twitter (see the sidebar here for a block w/his Twitter updates) & TweetPhotos, etc.. as I would just steal stuff (with credit of course) from there anyway.

[ I keep evolving this layout each week (but creating a template/regular format to stick with & make my life easier & to get the playlist up sooner is hard when George keeps changing the freaking show format on me!).. But I'm now hand-coding it (in either Notepad, or since I'm VERY visual & really like color-coding & didn't put Visual Studo back on my computer.. ;) I'm using FrontPage.. but a newer non-evil-ish version.. in the nerds in the crowd want to know.

Of course, as I mentioned above, this week is unique in that there isn't a G12, and no Bob OR Rich from CBC Radio 2!

If you have any suggestions/ideas, please let me know by commenting here, or somewhere on the blog. ]

  1. Hey! Thanks for the (partial) list, I've been looking for the playlist everywhere...

    I was briefly listening to the Strombo Show on the 27th, and caught George interviewing some musician and playing a few songs. I really want to know the name of the artist. All I remember hearing during is that the artist likes 'Ethiopique'jazz music or something like that before they requested some song with "crab apple" in it.

    I hope this is the least bit familiar, any help would be great!

  2. Hey "mnhttn"..

    Glad you found the blog & that it helped some..?!

    Hmm... I totally know what you are talking about.. Are you wanting just the name of the "crab apple" song & artist, or also who George was interviewing..

    This show was a re-composition of several different interviews done at different times, so the full playlists from those show might be up here or around somewhere..

    OR, it could be on the 1-3 shows I missed getting up since I started doing the blog in March. I think it may be the latter as I think it was a request by Gord Downie. I'll see if I can track down my other notes & look at the chat logs for that night.. it may be in there somewhere.. or someone else might know..

    All else fails.. I'll hassle George or his producer for the info.. IF they've done their lists that is ;)

    I'll do my best to find it for ya.. but it is a long weekend.. (Happy BC-Day!)

    Cheers,
    Michelle (Dolphin)!

As it turns out, I can't turn off the "Anonymous Users" part of the commenting form w/out also losing other formating I like, so I'll have to live with it. However, I do hope that those that comment here will make an effort to at least use a name of some sort. Or if you have a blog or website you can include it under the "Name/URL" option.

I do welcome all comments regardless and while you are not obliged to leave anything more than the comment, this blog is about engaging and sharing so I hope you will do the same.

Best regards,
Yours in musical awesome-ness!
