Unemployment – WAFFLES!, November 11, 2017

Who’s on the dole? Well, neither Matt nor Marisa, but we’re still singing songs about being out of work on WAFFLES! this week. Not a lot of classical or jazz, but a wide range of style regardless, from reggae to Rundgren, and a show-capping tribute to the late Chuck Mosley of Faith No More. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is here: http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20171111.pdf

Cosmos — WAFFLES!, November 4, 2017

To space — and beyond! We explore the cosmos on this edition of WAFFLES!, with jazz-infused space music from everyone from Dave Brubeck to The Comet is Coming, Canadian stellar superbands Stars and Metric, the singing sounds of Mr. Spock, Boney M, MC 900 Foot Jesus, and much more!

Halloween — WAFFLES!, October 28, 2017

Spooky! Scary! Yes, Werewolf Bar Mitzvah does make an appearance on this Halloween edition of WAFFLES! for 2017 — along with some jazz, electronics, a failed attempt to rekindle the “best candy” debate, and some goofy-assed music as well. Listen… if you dare! WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is right around here: http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20171028.pdf

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. Playlist is here: http://shep.ca/waffles/playlists/Playlist_WAFFLES_20171007.pdf

 

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.
