Parade Radio

I like the Africa of all this bold heat perfectly, so no sympathy, strap a freezie on and enjoy it or you'll miss the best part of the summer. Musical A.C. will be provided today by the fine musicians of the OUT OF THE BOX MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL which insinuates itself into the Great Hall and the Toronto Underground Cinema next weekend with fantastic 3D explorations featuring Loom, Jessica Stuart, Heartbeat Hotel  and on and on . This is the golden stuff so be there for the shine.
Soul appliques will be administered in a tribute to Jerry Ragovoy, who passed on in glory late last week. He figured positively in the radiance of 60's solar soul music as a songwriter of exquisite emotion: Wonderful Dream, Time Is On My Side, You Don't Know Nothing About Love, and Piece of My Heart.
Take it baby, and get it while you can. CKLN.FM online TODAY!!!!!11-2 p.m.
Be there or laissez-faire!

Suncrave Week Complete

I had to miss my show last week but it was all happening in a screened in sunroom atop the Canadian Shield
We relaxed and browned. Not evenly but thoroughly. Perfect weather, perfect food, no bites from the pests, no bait on the hook.
Five Years' Time by Noah and the Whale
Music largely present: Braids, Noah & the Whale, Genticorum, George Benson & Ronny Jordan, Stan Kenton & Artie Shaw, Blackbird Blackbird, Lindi Ortega, Abigail Lapell, Mike Angus, David Bromberg, Toots and the Maytals, Aline Morales, Snatam Kaur.
Took a trip to a basement forest studio midweek to play bass on Black Velvet for CBC's Cover Me contest with Alicia Sales and The Radio Friendlies. Fingers crossed. Video to follow.
Musical pleasure from Kasper Winding below. Pull up a chair.

Follow Us Online As The Orbit Revolves To Regent Park

It is in the anti gravity nature of falling through space that the orbit keeps changing, rising forward or falling up.
If you want to adopt a contiguous flight path to future broadcast destinations and destinies, please tune in at CKLN.FM online and join us today in our new Regent Park sound pod as we welcome Fedora Upside Down   an amalgam of Freeman Dre, Lemon Bucket Orchestra + Boxcar Boys + Rambunctious + Maria Bonita at 12:30.
all arriving from far Parkdale, live music will ensue
(illustration by Maurice Sendak. Fedora Upside Down  not exactly as pictured) 

For your comfort, we will also be offering gourmet meals, couture clothes, baths and foot-rubs on demand and, in the case of vacuum-packed space pilgrims, regular fresh-air outings. Be there or lose your chair. As below, so above.
