Contest Winner


We did something never before done on radio or even thought of for that matter…..Due to the severity of awesomeness of this band the Alpacas and them having a great video we decided to open the Top Shelf Video vault within the Rock Cut Feature Vault. We were glad we didn’t explode and I think that the structural integrity of the show held together because of the quality of the band and their music that we were playing. Check out a few tracks above by the Alpacas and then listen in as we review their “Comb My Hair” video that can also be found below!

Top 20 Raptors of all time! (2014-2015)

I was watching NBA TV as I always do and was saw that the Top 20 Raptors of all time was coming on. I was excited knowing that it was the Raptors 20th season and was really interested to see the list! I was surprised that it was a re-airing of a show taped back in 2012 and the list was crazy! So DJ AdRock and I decided to put together a much better list with players in better positions. Check the list below and our reasoning behind our choices in the podcast above!

Top Shelf Video: Fur Trade’s “Same Temptation”

Fur Trade, who had one of CKMS’s Top Tracks of 2013 for their song “Kids These Days” from their album “Don’t get Heavy” has released another video for the track “Same Temptation” off the same album. We came across the video on Facebook and waited for the show to watch it to experience first hand what is going on! Check out our on the spot reactions above and then make sure to check out this video below!

This video does not disappoint….however it seems to be a part one of an ongoing story! We aren’t sure when or how this story is going to end! But we will see what we can find out!

Cursed Arrows

The Cursed arrows have performed live on the Mano A Mano show before and are one of our favourite bands. I noticed Ryan in the liner notes as a producer for an older local band called Silent Films and checked out their site and they just released an album of cover songs appropriately titled “Couvre Projet”.
