Strings – WAFFLES!, June 16, 2018

Strings are the things! Matt and Marisa play music with strings — mostly pop plus strings — starting with beautiful classical, segueing directly into the hellscape of Hooked on Classics, and including contemporary classics like the Dambuilders and The Verve. WAFFLES! is stringin’ along with a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Never: WAFFLES!, June 9, 2018

A bit late to post this one! NEVER and NO rule the day on WAFFLES! this week, as Marisa and Matt play music that’s all about the negative. Well, kind of the positive negatives. It’s complicated. WAFFLES! is never not podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Math – WAFFLES!, June 2, 2018

Math is the theme of this week, with songs ranging from the Golden Ratio influenced classical of Bela Bartok to the origins of Math Rock — the harder-than-hard punk of Nomeansno and Black Flag. Some new Aesop Rock, some British novelty acts, and even a little Danny Kaye round things out.

Cats, SNKI and Ferals: WAFFLES!, May 26, 2018

Cats! Cats! Cats! APOLOGIES for the horrific audio issues at the start of the show; there was a minor mic issue at the station. It gets marginally better. We’re joined by Heather from For The Love of Ferals and Romana from the Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative — both cat-centric organizations here in town. We talk cats! And play music, too!

Leaders: WAFFLES!, May 19, 2018

Honestly? Not one of our best. Matt took the idea of “leaders” and wound up with a whole ton of Canadiana arcana, including a fight song for John Diefenbaker, and some Nixon on piano stuff. Marisa kind of abandoned the idea and found some songs about mean bosses. Well, they can’t all be winners. The playlist is here:

Joy: WAFFLES! — May 12, 2018

From the Beethoven classic to the chap-hop of Professor Elemental, side-stepping through jazz and celebrity gossip, JOY is the subject of this week’s WAFFLES!, as Matt and Marisa break down music (or bands) that make them happy or deal with the joyous subject of joy itself.

New Music (And Matt Solo): WAFFLES!, May 5, 2018

Two rock solid hours of rockin’ new music, from the electronic/classical meanderings of Tigue to the electronic pulse of Booka Shade, on this week’s WAFFLES! Matt flies solo as Marisa works. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Sailing: WAFFLES! — April 28, 2018

John Curtis of Wind Athletes (and a lot of other sailing-related initatives) drops by to co-host with Matt, and generally blow our minds about a whole whack o’ sailing facts! Music ranges from Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea, Prosperous Journey all the way to the Beach Boys and frankly terrifying music from, appropriately, TV show The Terror. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is over yonder, sailor:

Insects: WAFFLES! — April 21, 2018

Buzz buzz — bees, hornets, wasps, fireflies, and some non-insects like worms and spiders are crawling all over this edition of WAFFLES! Surprisingly mellow music for the most part, but getting kind of raucous on the back end with some new-classic hip-hop, Japanese rap, UK dance and a lot of bands named Cicada. The playlist is here: Is WAFFLES! podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff? You buzzcha!


Harmony: WAFFLES!, April 14, 2018

Marisa and Matt are in har-mon-nyyyyy! Actually they repeatedly fail to sing in harmony — brutally — while playing lots of music by people who do, ranging from the eerie world of polyphonic overtone to the Gregorian chant of the Monks of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac on through the raucous yet sweet music of the Old 97’s. It’s the mellowest WAFFLES! ever, probably, and podcast always under a SOCAN 22F tariff.
