Wood — WAFFLES!, October 21, 2017

“Let me play you songs from the wood!” Jethro Tull is our guiding spirit in this edition of WAFFLES!, as we play songs about wood itself, forests, and bands with “wood” in their name. We didn’t play any Royal Wood! Weird. Our playlist is at http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20171021.pdf, and WAFFLES! is podcast as always under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Times Past – October 14, 2017

After navigating streets strewn with drunken late-teens (it’s Homecoming Weekend!), we spend two hours playing songs about time gone by to commemorate… well, Homecoming Weekend. Bitter regret and lost opportunities make this a kind of terrible WAFFLES! from an uplifting-radio perspective. It is, as always, broadcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is here: http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20171014.pdf

Deep Voices – October 7, 2017

Marisa’s out of town, so Matt is joined by Stephen, a man with an even deeper voice than his own… so it’s two hours of songs featuring deep-voiced men on WAFFLES! From Crash Test Dummies to Leonard Cohen, from the deepest voice in the world to various covers, it’s all basso profundo on this week’s WAFFLES! Which is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff, by the way.

Phones – WAFFLES!, September 23, 2017

We invite special guests Matt (Jennings) and Jamie (The Technician) of Old Phone Works here in Kingston to talk about phones and phone restoration, and blow our minds about how many old-timey phones from film and TV have come from right here in town!

And, of course, music about phones. With a special, sweet and sad bumper as Marisa says goodbye to her dad through music. All broadcast, as always, under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is here. 

WAFFLES! Tattoos — September 16, 2017

A great interview anchors this episode, featuring Ashley of the Limestone City Tattoo & Arts Festival. So it’s all tattoo music! Kicking off with some tattooed opera singers, then moving on to more of what you’d expect: songs about tattoos from artists spanning the last half-century. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

WAFFLES! Sweet – September 9, 2017

Marisa’s quit sugar! For September. So we’re playing sweet music about sugar, or by bands named for sweet things, to try to give her some other forms of sweet in her life. Also: special guest Jeremy Milloy, author of Blood, Sweat and Fear, to talk about workplace violence both historical and actual. Our playlist is at http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20170909.pdf . WAFFLES! is, as always, podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

WAFFLES! Fake Languages — September 2, 2017

Songs in Klingon! Songs in Elvish! Songs in Hopelandic! Musical renditions of the Lorem Ipsum text! It’s wall to wall linguistic weirdness for the first 90 minutes of WAFFLES! this week, followed by a round-up of great new (and less new) Canadian music. Ze playlist, she is here.
