Check it out in the podcast below and then go get your face melted off at Cork Hall May 13th at 8:00pm.
The picture above is from a few years ago when Pick a Piper released their first untitled album. They came to CKMS the day of the release and celebrated the album.
Fast Forward to now and Pick A Piper is releasing their follow up album called “Distance” and it is Amazing! I was lucky enough to be at their Waterloo show where they blew the top off the starlight.
In the interview that can be heard here I thought I heard Brad wrong when he said that they play stand up drums….but it was amazing! We will get a video clip up soon on our Mano A Mano Youtube page but for now check out some choice tracks and stories about the albums here:
Pick A Piper is back with a new Album: Distance. This new album takes their work to a new level! Check out this podcast that spans various different era’s of work by this great band with ties to the KW community!
Then get your stuff together and meet us at Starlight! April 13th for Pick A Piper live in concert. These guys always put on a great show switching from synths to percussion to whatever else they can to produce the electro-rock vibes!
Above is our feature presentation of Ian Somers music from various different bands he has worked with. As one of our favourite musicians we are happy to bring to you his new track “All Failures” in the above podcast and since that podcast he has released one other track that can be heard here:
Here is the final self titled album by the Amazing Band Hot Hot Heat as our Block Three Feature of the Month!
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:

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.
To check out the full interview and many other songs performed listen to the podcast of the “Love to Air” here:
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.
