Since CHRW is celebrating it's 30th year on the airwaves this October, we've decided to ONLY play bands that played here in London Ontario approximately 30 years ago, for the next 3 consecutive shows. And what does that exactly mean? Well, no new releases for the next 3 shows, unless of course it's a band that played 30 years ago here in London, and has a current release. And there are actually a couple of those...but you'll have to tune in to find out.
Back 30 years ago, some of the cool venues that we used to hang out at, included; The Cedar Lounge, Fryfogles, Victoria Tavern, York Hotel, Ye Olde City Hall, Mingles (it was pretty rare there was a cool band here, but it did happen), Firehall and probably a few others.
Some of the bands you'll be hearing during the next 3 weeks of shows include: The Stranglers, Ramones, 999, UK Subs, The Fast, Panther Burns, Eddie And The Hot Rods, DOA, Subhumans, Anti-Nowhere League, The Bopcats, The Diodes, The Secrets, Rough Trade, B Girls, Dead Rabbits, UIC, NFG, Arson and TONS more!!
Tune in for all of the action the next 3 thursdays from 7 to 8:30PM EST on CHRW 94.9 FM and on the web at:
The first special, Thursday Oct 13th will be the first part of The Fryfogles Years. Fryfogles was located on the south side of Dundas St, where the London Public Library is presently located. It was in this space for many years, hosting some of the world's greatest bands! And part 1 will focus on a few of those bands who graced the stage approximately 30 years ago.
Part 2 will continue with The Fryfogle years and this could continue into part 3, depending on how things go. This is live radio, not a scripted, rehearsed, canned product created in a studio...this is the real deal so anything can happen!
And YES, the event photo was taken at the morgue here in London...for some reason, we get invited to the most interesting places.
