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.
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.
For Season 10 of the Mano A Mano show we are going to be mirroring The Lost Indie City’s themes with an additional stipulation that we cannot play the same songs that they chose. Here is the Mano A Mano mammal list:
This past week we featured an awesome three block of music by a band from Montreal called La Querelle while enjoying some “Keep Calm and Saison”. Check out the podcast below and then go and check them out on Bandcamp!
In our first ever “Case of the Mondays” Monday the Mano A Mano program celebrated it’s 10th Season on CKMS. DJ Jeff E Jeff was in the station with DJ Steel as an homage to day one season one when it was these two DJ’s who battled out “Instrumental Music”. On this first #COTM the Mano A Mano DJ’s mirrored The Lost indie City’s Theme of “Going Solo”. Without seeing the Lost Indie Cities set, Mano A Mano only had two repeat solo acts.

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.
Colin Stetson is a past Mano A Mano “Rock Cut Feature Band of the Week” and is featured in an episode of the “Electrifying Adventures of DJ Jeff E Jeff” (Mano A Mano’s Radio Comic that features only CDN content)
So, when this new Colin Stetson collaboration with Sarah Neufeld came into the station it immediately peaked our attention. After one listen it is amazing! Check out the new material above in our podcast and if you haven’t see what Colin Stetson can do check him out in the video below:
Coming up on July 24th is the WAYHOME music festival! The line-up boasts some great musicians from across the content including one of our past feature bands: For Esme
This podcast was released a while ago when we found their vinyl in the station! We were thrilled to test out the vinyl and find a rich combination of atmospheric sounds combined with great song writing. For Esme has just released a new track and is set to release a new album called “Sugar” later on this year. The new track is called “You”. This months Rock Cut Video is “You” by For Esme. Check it out below!
Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a band that is near and dear to our hearts. They are the one of the first bands that we featured on “The Electrifying Adventures of DJ Jeff E Jeff”, our Audio Comic that features great Canadian Bands. As such, when we saw their new album ‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’ we knew we had to release it on the same day that we closed out The Electrifying Adventures – Canada Day!
Sit back and enjoy this soundscape! Then go and pick up this album! You will not be disappointed!
