Topanga – Back against the wall
Life in Vacuum – Seven
Brand New – Seventy Times 7
Polkaholics – Pimps of Polka
Me First & the Gimme Gimme’s – Nothing Compares to You
We recently had Evan from the Robot Apocalypse Collective in the CKMS Studio to share some Block Three Brewing Company Kind Street Saison’s, talk about new collaborations and where he gets inspiration for this exciting collaborative project. In addition to playing a few Robot Apocalypse tracks the Mano A Mano DJ’s play a throwback Song from Evans former band “Run Down Royalty” from when they were in the CKMS studio Years ago.
Drew Chester of the band Patrons came into the SoundFM studio about a week ago to play a brand new patrons track that would be on the upcoming new Patrons album. We talked about the band name change, sampled some Block Three Brewing company products and talked about growing up in a recording studio!
DJ AdRock’s favorite band in the world is Frightened Rabbit. If you follow the Mano A Mano show on twitter @mamradio you will have probably seen how excited he is for this new album. In this podcast we feature a few of these brand new tracks and some oldies in this Block Three Brewing Company – Three Block Feature of Frightened Rabbit.

In our first ever “Case of the Mondays” Monday the Mano A Mano program celebrated it’s 10th Season on CKMS.

Check out the SFM times page here for the Top Releases of 2015 and the award winning DJ’s and shows. Although only certain DJ’s were selected for awards, as always, CKMS – Radio Waterloo has a vast variety of great programming, all of which are deserving of awards. Here is the podcast of the Top Releases and Awards ceremony.
This podcast and video have been a long time in the making. This was filmed as Radio Waterloo was leaving the 108 King Street Studio Location. Because of that the audio is a bit glitchy in the podcast but as you can tell in the video above the harmonies provided by the Alpacas were unwavering.
Check out this amazing band in the video above and podcast below.
