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. ]


[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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. ]

[ And here.. these 2 songs in a row.. so why I freaking ♥HEART♥ the Strombo Show.. The Cure into Otis Redding! Hot damn. I got so distracted just listening.. here.. I completely forgot to note down the songs.. so I think it went straight into the Gord Downie tune & interview segment after this.. ]

I was able to tag or note pretty much *ALL* of the tracks while listening to the show on Sunday, June 20th.

The show was a little bit different again this week, as it was
Part II of the Frontmen/women/people (since we have to include a few super awesome trans-gendered folk in there for sure!)

And also.. keep in mind.. there was NO G12 Count Down again this night! Word is it "may" return next week.. but it was a wee bit unclear. I'll see if I can get a sneak peek for us.. ;)


So, as I mentioned..the show on Sunday, June 20, 2010 was Part II (2) in look at the "Frontman in Rock and Roll"...

The Hour had a bit back when they were visiting Vancouver where they returned "The Newstand" (which I personally think is awesome) to the show, and George chatted with Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace about "Q magazine's recently released list of the Top 20 Frontman in Rock and Roll."

[ Sorted quoted from: Strombo.com and here's.. The Hour: "The Newstand" Video! ]

Q mag had: "Liam Gallagher was number one (travesty), Muse Matt Bellamy was 6 (better than Chuck D?, come on). This list caused much discussion at the Strombo Show. So we had this grand plan to do a definitive list, but instead found this impossible."

They decided to try and break the music & frontmen (and women/people/transgendered/etc) down by decades. I.e. ".. when we say Frontman we mean Front-Person."

And they split it into 2 different shows.. last week Sunday, June 13th, 2010 (they did the 60's & 70's mostly), and this Sunday, June 20th, they took it into the 80's (deeply), the 90's, and the 2000's/present. (Looks like G didn't do anything for "Father's Day")..

Instead of Rich Terfry stopping by.. we had.. < gasp /> a girl...
Lana Gay from CBC Radio 3 stopped by to pick some awesome songs..

Now Lana is out here on the west coast where I am.. I haven't met her (yet)... but feel free to say hi Lana.. your picks kicked ass!

[ I now have posted some links as well to Lana & how to reach her.. as on Sunday night/Monday morning... I just really wanted to get the playlist up & didn't have the time to hunt about.

Now there isn't much over at Wikipedia on Lana, but I scrounged around and found some cool stuff about her in case you are either a CBC Radio 3, music, west coast, or all of the above n00bie... You can find Ms. Lana over in Twitter-Land here: @LanaGay! I found some interesting new folk to follow from her fans & friends list!

Lana can be found on-air over at CBC Radio 3 and her profile info is here: CBC Radio 3 Member Page: Lana Gay. She has some great playlists up there as well... I really like CBC Radio 3 web layout and format.. hint, hint... CBC Radio 2?!

And there is a great article over at Shameless Magazine (for girls who get it): Lana Gay: CBC Radio 3 Host, On-Air and Awesome and over at Vancouver IS Awesome... has a nice little write-up as well... and a link to Lana Gay's CBC Radio 3 Playlist(s) ]


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

I may still do a "Highlights & Excerpts section" later since both Bob & Lana.. and wow.. Darby Wheeler got all super chatty (lol.. Clayton Darrell Darby Wheeler.. hee hee! Not sure if that is 1 "L" or 2..) and George spent quite a bit of time talking about the various songs and their "front-person songs/bands" being chosen/played, etc.

The Strombo Show Website but George, Darby and few other of his producers/writer types are off on a road-trip.. so.. so far.. they haven't posted any updates etc, while they have been on the road... since like last week!

They are now in LA.. massively insane amount of hours/KMs driven.. so they may update something, or not.. since they are on vacation after all. Hey George.. you guys could just give me the passwords & FTP access to your site(s) & maybe pay me.. and I could do it ;). Haha... ***

The Strombo Show Playlist [ Mostly Complete - but Unconfirmed (NO G12 this week) ]: June 20, 2010

[ BTW. My comments are in [ "Italics" ]. In case it isn't obvious. ]

[ We've opened up with the following songs... lots more to comment on later! ]

U2 - Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?

Joy Division - She's Lost Control

The Police - Born In The 50s

The Cure - Lullaby
[ Might be the extended mix? ]

Siouxsie & The Banshees - Kiss Them For Me

Pretenders - Boots Of Chinese Plastic

R.E.M. - Finest Worksong


[ And those tracks should take us to Bob's picks of the night. ]


[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]

[ Bob Top Front-person Picks. ]

[ So not only will you see that they played a number of fantastic songs, but there was some really great stories from Bob & G.
I'll get into them even more in a later update, as I only have so much time right now... and can't remember them all. Just focusing on getting the playlist up!

But seriously.. you really just need to hear the show to truly appreciate it anyway! ]


[ SO.. REALLY hoping to see this show up on The Strombo Show Website some day soon! Boys?! I can't wait to re-listen, as I really want to hear the chats again!

And this is heading into my top 10 Strombo Shows.. I may have to go back and re-listen to the ones up there & also consider the missing ones.. and put together My Top 10 Strombo Shows Blog Posting?! Hmm... Or maybe an M-7.. or D12? Ok.. that's bad. But it's late.
I'll come up with something funnier later. ]


Bob's Top Front-person Picks - #1: The Who - Love Reign O'vr Me
Bob's Top Front-person Picks - #2: The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony

[ "I never don't want to hear this song." I can't agree more.. except with the grammar.. and you had to be there to know what we're talking about. ]

Bob's Top Front-person Picks - #3: Public Enemy - Bring The Noise

[ That's it for Bob's pick.. back to the regular scheduled chaos of Darbs/Wheels/Darby and the G-man (I know.. I know.. I shouldn't. But they make me laugh SO freaking hard... I HAVE to make fun of them ;) ]


[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]

Metallica - Master of Puppets

[ Must admit.. this next section of songs, including the above, had me coming out of my skin... the Metallica one was played recently on the show already.. but fasten your seatbelt.. as the Power Hour starts here! ]


Iron Maiden - Aces High

[ BTW... this was a request for Scott (and someone I forgot now from some metal show.. or something.. sorry that's so vague.. I didn't write it down). I was just so distracted by the awesome-ness of this show! If anyone recalls.. let me know. Thanks muchly kids. ]

White Zombie - Thunderkiss 65

[ This particular White Zombie song was also played recently on the show. ]

Guns N 'Roses - Nighttrain (Appetite For Destruction)

Nirvana - Heart-Shaped Box

Faith No More - Epic

Temple of the Dog - Hunger Strike

Jane's Addiction - Mountain Song

The Smashing Pumpkins - Drown ({rotten Apples})

Pixies - Wave of Mutilation

[ Life *IS* always better when the Pixies are played on The Strombo Show. I think I'm showing both my age & my biases here.. ]

Beastie Boys - Gratitude

Nofx - Linoleum

Hole - Rock Star

Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians - What I Am (Acoustic version)

[ What an oddly strange, but quite workable transition here.. I've always loved Edie Brickell, but I've never heard this version of this song. ]

Blur - ParkLife (Starring Phil Daniels)

[ What I love the most about this song .. is that they keep their accents while singing. I remember (years ago!) at Expo 86 (since it comes up later in conversation.. lol) seeing some Australian band play there and loving their Aussie accents, but being amazed that they lost them while singing... (what can I say.. I was like 13.. give me a break!) ]

Radiohead - Paranoid Android

[ And what is so funny about this song.. is I went to go make a late dinner.. not far.. just to the kitchen.. but I came back AND thought I had missed a song while prepping my food.. but.. oh.. no! Nevermind... It's *STILL* Radiohead. ]

~ So... NO Rich Terfry this week. Damn.

[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]

[ BUT.. guess what kids.. we have a special treat this week..
A GIRL! Yes.. a real live girl/woman comes on the Strombo Show
..
so much for the boys club.. or maybe I've been making fun of them too much & they decided to go hunt down some female DJ/musical talent. To that end.. We have the lovely Lana Gay (from CBC Radio 3) stopping by tonight pick a few frontpeople type songs.

Her criteria was a bit different.. I hope I get this straight:
1. They had to be alive still (no dead people or seniors for some reason.. I forget why..)
2. They had to be someone she had seen play live
3. Oh wait.. #2 was #3, so.. #2 had something to do with the seniors.. well.. you get the picture.
Someone correct me if they remember what her "rules" were exactly. Thanks! ]


[ Lana Gay's Top Frontperson Picks. ]

Lana Gay's (from CBC Radio 3) Picks #1: Fucked Up - Son The Father

[ We don't bleep or edit here... cover your kids eyes if they are reading this blog with you.. ]

Lana Gay's (from CBC Radio 3) Picks #2: The White Stripes - Little Acorns

[ I'm with ya Lana.. I *heart* the opening to this song. It gives me hope too... and just the thoughts that go along with the song title.. "little acorns"... awww... ]

Lana Gay's (from CBC Radio 3) Picks #3: Gossip - Yr Mangled Heart

[ Also very much agree with this front-women pick. We need more women that just kick ass. Not b/c they look hot or can wear a tiny tight skirt/outfit/chain mail bikini/whatever on stage!

I do have to say.. I have listened to Lana on Radio 3 the odd time, but not a ton, as I can't always stream online at the time of day.. if I'm out and about, or in a meeting, and sometimes I just plain forgot to put Radio 3 on then since if I'm working.. I am easily distracted by good music!!

But I do have to mention here.. George's voice (& his response) when Lana says "50 is senior".. OMG.. SO funny!!! SO FUNNY.
And I'm now super curious how old Lana is then.. as I took her for our "generation".. meaning around the same age-ish as.. me (G, Darby, Bob, Rich, etc..) or at least in the ballpark with us.. ]


Lana Gay's (from CBC Radio 3) Picks #4: The King Khan & BBQ Show - Invisible Girl

[ Well. The vote in the chat was "We like Lana". And no Smallville reference is required here.. but you can add one in your head if it helps. I certainly enjoyed her picks & banter.. but she's a west coast girl.. out here with me in Vancouver.. WHAT is not to like I say!?!

She can come back to visit Le Strombo Show anytime.. and keep these boys in line! And I promise to stop over at Radio 3 in the afternoon to listen to your show more regularly Lana.. or at least toss a promotion nugget out here on the blog and on Twitter once I'm less sleep deprived and can update this here posting with links, etc. Tues/Wed for sure. ]



[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]

[ Back to our favorite boyz.. George and Darby to take us off into the night.. with a few more kickin' songs.. and then a sweet album side.. If you like the heavier/harder side of life.. I mean music! Well.. aren't they the same thing. Think of it as music to have sex too.. oh wait.. nevermind.. TMI. ]

Tool - Eulogy

Skinny Puppy - Dig It

[ There are a couple versions/edits are possible of this song!? Not entirely sure which one they played.. maybe the "Short Edit" off "The Singles Collect" album or the "Twelve Inch Anthology".. (produced by Nettwork Productions Ltd - yep.. I believe that is Sarah Mac's label). I'm going with the latter on a whim here.. ]

Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod

[ I remember the last time George played this Ministry song on the radio.. it was last summer, just after Martin Streek passed away.

I'm sure G was thinking of him while playing it/taping the show..
I know it's the first thing that crossed my mind when I heard it come over the airwaves.. R.I.P. Martin.

If you are not familiar with Martin.. here is some info Wikipedia: Martin Streek and we are still thinking of you as the DJ the big radio show in the sky! ]


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[ Return to the Table of Contents. ]


Into the Album Side: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Pretty Hate Machine

[ Side 1. (I believe was played..) ]

Album Side # 1: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Head Like A Hole
Album Side # 2: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Terrible Lie
Album Side # 3: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Down In It
Album Side # 4: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Sanctified
Album Side # 5: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - Something I Can Never Have


[ Sigh... I ♥ NIN.. and I think.. it may be be a tie between "Sanctified" and "Something I Can Never Have" for my favorite song(s) by them. I know it wasn't for me.. but thanks anyway guys. ]

[ The end.. of the "Album Side" & the end of the show!

But.. I did hear one more song.. playing the show out I believe... and G & Darby had a bit of chatting at the end here.. which was kinda funny.. but you needed last week's show (and maybe some other things) to form a point of reference to what they were talking about. Let's just say that they were being geeky.. nerdy (which incidentally is also kinda hot.. ) music boys & just leave it at that ;) ]


Nine Inch Nails (NIN) - La Mer (Left)

[ This last track wasn't on the album side, but from "The Fragile" album I'm pretty sure. But don't quote me until I google it or something first. ]


[ NO "Big Lie-Down" this week! ]

[ NOTE: That's the best I've got ATM. Please comment if you have anything I missed! TIA. ]

I was able to tag or note *MOST* of the tracks while listening to the show on Sunday, June 13th.

The show was a little bit different this week. (There was NO G12 Count Down), but pretty much the full playlist will be up in the next day or so!

What the show was this time was a look at the "Frontman in Rock and Roll"...

The Hour had a bit back when they were visiting Vancouver where they returned "The Newstand" (which I personally think is awesome) to the show, and George chatted with Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace about "Q magazine's recently released list of the Top 20 Frontman in Rock and Roll."

[ Sorted quoted from: Strombo.com and here's.. The Hour: "The Newstand" Video! ]

And to quote some more..
Q mag had: "Liam Gallagher was number one (travesty), Muse Matt Bellamy was 6 (better than Chuck D?, come on). This list caused much discussion at the Strombo Show. So we had this grand plan to do a definitive list, but instead found this impossible. So tonight's show is part one of two shows. Call it a conversation about frontman from two music fans, George and Darby, and Radio 2's Rich Terfry and Bob Mackowycz."

They decided to try and break the music & frontmen (and women) down by decades. I.e. ".. when we say Frontman we mean FrontPerson." And into 2 different shows.. this past Sunday, June 13th and next Sunday, June 20th (I guess G isn't doing anything for "Father's Day").

So.. I decided to put this quick note up about it (as people have been visiting and asking about it) & I'm working on getting the full playlist up by tomorrow, or actually Thursday, (I forgot I'm up early to watch the Greece game on Thurs AM, so re-scheduling things around that) sometime. (I have some of it down now, but need to edit the template I was creating for the regular show format to get rid of G12 stuff, etc.)

I may still do a "Highlights & Excerpts section" since both Rich & Bob are on the show w/their "frontperson picks" and Darby Wheeler (lol.. Wheels.. hee hee!) and George spent quite a bit of time chatting about the various songs being chosen/played and why.

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.. there are often updates posted over at The Strombo Show Website but George, Darby and few other of his producers/writer types are off on a road-trip.. so not sure if there will be much in the way updates, etc while they are on the road! ***


[ I keep evolving this layout each week (but working on a template/regular format to stick with & make my life easier & to get the playlist up sooner!).. and now 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..

Of course, as I mentioned above, this week is unique in that there isn't a G12, but both Bob & Rich did stop by to pick some tracks.. so I'll have those listed along with everything else when it gets up here!

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

[ Not sure if these were part of Bob's Top Frontperson Picks?
I don't think they were for some reason... as I didn't have them noted as that.. but I haven't gone back thru the whole playlist yet to make sure. ]


Gord Downie.. (or was that Big Sugar here?) [ I kinda missed it.. ]

Roughtrade - High School Confidential

[ They were doing some Canadian bands here, but I think Carol Pope was like the only frontwomen they really did here. Although they did touch on a few others.. and I'm hoping we'll see some more in next weeks continuation show! ]

[ Bunch of other songs here.. including:
(But I did miss a bunch as I had to step away from the computer/radio for a ~20-30mins.. my handy chat room crowd that was on later did try & keep track for me as best they could.. kudos pending to those folks.. once I look at who was there again ;)]
