Beatlesesque: WAFFLES! — December 16, 2017

Meet the not-Beatles! Beatles covers, Beatles-inspired songs, and Beatles side projects are all over this week’s WAFFLES!, podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. This week we cover everything Beatles except the Fab Four themselves: you won’t hear a single Beatles song on this show, but a load of Beatles content ranging from the Canadian Brass to the Smithereens, from William Shatner to Laibach.

Saints: WAFFLES! — December 9, 2017

From Saint John Coltrane to a smirking Roger Moore, we run the gamut of sainthood on this edition of WAFFLES!, including an interview with the vegan geniuses of the Kingston based cruelty-free catering/dining company Knifey Spooney. No artists were harmed in the making of this radio program: it is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Geography Bands: WAFFLES!, November 18, 2017

Bands named for places! Or places named… for bands? No, bands named for places. Inspired by new released by the Rural Alberta Advantage and Wilderness of Manitoba, Matt and Marisa embark on a voyage of discovery through bands named for places (probably), eschewing the obvious in favour of things like Architecture in Helsinki and Portugal, The Man. Also, Matt is a horse! Briefly. And Sam Elliott, also briefly. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is here! 

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.
