Like new never seems to end!

Word Up......

I’d like to remind everyone that CKCU-FM’s funding drive starts this Friday! As most things good in life seem to go to “hell in a hand cart” at some point these days. My show, Friday Morning Cartunes (actual “now” free form radio!!!) is into its 23rd year; same time, same day, same place on the mighty 93.1 FM on your radio dial and on the addict box. I strive too always keep it as real as it gets. It does not matter a damn that you may or may not know what spins! You can put the trust factor on me that I’ll give you a 3.5 hour musical ride of a lifetime every single week ! Speak positively with some financial support and dial and donate for the preservation of real live, in the trench, hands on radio programming. “FMC” is about a lifetime of serious PHD level investigation and study and understanding. It’s never accidental. It’s purely old school and delivered from the heart, week in, week out. The pledge line locally is 613-520-3920….toll free long distance is 877-520-3920. Advance pledge forms are online at: . I hope to thank you personally on-air for any donation you deem appropriate over the course of my funding drive programs on Friday, October 21st, 28th and November 4th. Please keep tradition and reality alive in 2011!

My soundtrack today (which is ongoing) has thus far been provided by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Grandloom, Amina Claudine Myers, Gunter Hampel, Maurice McIntyre, Owl Xounds, Terje Rypdal, Kuhn-Corea-Kuhn, Pharoah Sanders and exmagma. To say the day has been a good one is vastly understated….

Pentangle's Bert Jansch

Legendary and godlike British guitarist, Bert Jansch has passed our world at the age of 67.. Bert’s highly influential guitar playing received high praise and critical acclaim globally. A leader of the Brit folk revival of the 60’s both as a solo artist and with his phenomenal group Pentangle, he leaves behind a vast catalog of essential and exceptional music (20+ solo albums!!!). His last studio album “The Black Swan” from 2006, featured a who’s who ofyoung contemporaries who by any measure must have been awed to be in presence. I was lucky enough to have seen Bert Jansch play several times in the late 1980’s and I can tell you, it was magical.

Below is a quote taken from The Gaurdian
*According to fellow guitarist Johnny Marr: "He completely reinvented guitar playing and set a standard that is still unequalled today … without Bert Jansch, rock music as it developed in the 60s and 70s would have been very different."
