This one was All Things Considered on Shawn Chrystopher, check it:

Kitchener Electronic Music Open Mic

This is the first of it’s kind in the KW area. It is starting up after the recent success of The Modulation Club events that were held at the KPL library which featured techniques on synthesis exploration.

Now it is time to check out the music of the region!

Sign up to perform or just show up and see what cool  electronics people in the KW region are making music with.

The Tri City Synthesizer Society

The Robot might even make an appearance at a future open mic!

AWH Takeover 7 featuring Jason Sharp & FREE COFFEE!

First the podcast, where I chat about what you can expect at the KPL Modular meet-ups that were happening monthly throughout the winter and about how once you get into modular you start to notice it everywhere like with this feature artist that I went to see.

The featured solo artist is Jason Sharp Check out their Bandcamp page and support their music here:…


Here are the clues for you to find your FREE COFFEE it is at this location. One of the first stops of the Robot’s summer tour was here:

CKMS is one of the 9 wonders of the KW Region! If you are unfamiliar with the area and the station a comment in the next video (another Robot performance) will give you a Google Maps Plus code to get you to the right area.

Note: The Robot Apocalypse chip and coffee card is not in the CKMS station. You do not need to try and get in. It will be accessible to the public. If it is not easily found it probably means someone has already found it. There will be another coffee hidden next weekend.

Good Luck!


Little Payne – Listening Party & Concept Album Hall of Fame Induction

A week or two ago we did our first listen to the newly released Limblifter album. We made a scary discovery during the listening party that this could be the last Limblifter album. Maybe we interpreted the wording wrong. Join us, take a listen to this album. Give it a purchase – We were right, it is fantastic!

To see all the other albums that make-up the Concept Album Hall of Fame Collage visit our site here:

Play It Forward

In this Experimental Radio Podcast Series each episode will feature a different band who will select three other bands that they enjoy.

Mano A Mano will contact all the selected bands and if they reply, a continuation branch from this episode will be created with that band as the feature along with their three selections and so on and so forth….

A branch dies when a band does not reply, chooses an already selected band or the mentioned band cannot be found.

Hosted and produced by Mano A Mano. DJ’d and directed by bands.

Mano A Mano with Gary Cain

DJ Steel of the Mano A Mano show met virtually with Gary Cain. It was previously established and proven on the Mano A Mano show that Gary Cain is the 4th best guitarist in the WORLD! Here is the raw interview where we talk about how Gary got playing Blues guitar, his influences and how to get to the next level with your guitar playing and more

Check out our weekend podcast above where our sub-theme was “Green” albums – to add as leaves on our #ConceptAlbum mosaic. We might record our podcasts this way moving forward….still experimenting! If you have a preference let us know:

Album:  In A Coma

Notes:  Probably one of Canada’s best musicians! Between the years of 1995-2005 Matt Good could do no wrong! Check it out here!

Album: Vehicles Boyond

Notes:  These guys were a fantastic band from Hamilton. I picked up this album years ago at one of their show before I ever knew about “Math Rock” I saw them perform a few times….great album. Might be hard to find! Check it out in the podcast above!
