  • Bob Jonkman : Seems all the "Midnight" songs are Rockin' Blues...

  • REQUIEM : Yes back in the day when jaunts for shopping happened and the Canadian dollar was worth a lot more!
  • Bob Jonkman : No, I only went to Buffalo once, to buy records that weren't available in Hamilton or Toronto. Bought my first CD there, before I even had a player. A Vangelis CD, I think.
  • REQUIEM : Tonights show was about the Century theater in Buffalo. Ever go there?
  • REQUIEM : he played a Superman..a Flash Gordon and stuff like Roger Ramjet.
  • REQUIEM : Commander Tom WAS Bigger than Santa! lol
  • Bob Jonkman : All my friends' families had rotators, tho.
  • Bob Jonkman : Nope, we didn't have a rotator. Just two arials and a switch to select one or the other.
  • Bob Jonkman : This was Burlington, maybe 1968 or so
  • Bob Jonkman : One Christmas Tom Jolls was in the parade. I was more excited to see Commander Tom than Santa
  • Bob Jonkman : Oh man! That's what I was rabbitholing just now! Yup, I watched those!
  • REQUIEM : early in the show before you came I clipped "rocketship 7" and Commander Tom"
  • REQUIEM : That device was called a "rotator" I do believe.....
  • Bob Jonkman : Yup. We had two arials, one for Buffalo, and one for Toronto. Had to switch them with a small double-pole switch attached to the baseboard beside the TV, depending on which channel you were watching
  • REQUIEM : So you got Channel 7 with an arial? lol
  • REQUIEM : Irv had a great style. Always jovial even if serious....
  • Bob Jonkman : Yup. I thought that's how the news was always delivered.
  • REQUIEM : I always hope to be "interesting" for the show.
  • REQUIEM : Irv rocked!
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, you've got me rabbitholing "Irv Weinstein" and related things on Wikipedia. So it was a good show, keeping me busy!
  • REQUIEM : The Tubes. At the CENTURY THEATER Buffalo
  • Bob Jonkman : Hi Mr. Smart! I remember this, "White Punks On Dope"...
  • REQUIEM : Hi Bob!
  • Bob Jonkman : Hi! Just got out of our Board meeting!
  • REQUIEM : Welcome anyone out there!
  • Bob Jonkman : More dance tunes from DJ Sherice on "It's A Vibe"
  • Bob Jonkman : It's Friday Night! The Dance Party started with DJ Da Don, and carries on with DJ Denim. Watch him in action at https://www.twitch.tv/denim_entertainment
  • Bob Jonkman : Good night, Mr. Smart! Hope to see you again next week!
  • REQUIEM : well goodnight and thanks again..........
  • guest_3328 : right
  • Bob Jonkman : https://radiowaterloo.ca/category/ckms-community-connections/?tag=podcast is probably a better URL to find the podcast episodes
  • Bob Jonkman : All the previous episodes with interviews are at https://radiowaterloo.ca/ccc (near the bottom under "Previous Episodes"). So you can catch up. I don't usually bother making podcasts for the music-only episodes
  • REQUIEM : well the next time you are hosting CCC send me a note if you remember. So I can hear what happens on it.
  • Bob Jonkman : sorry, R4R
  • Bob Jonkman : You're welcome to take some CCC episodes if you want to do something non R$R
  • Bob Jonkman : Jenniefer Stronge started CCC, and meant to showcase the many people who volunteer at CKMS. But it's wandered a bit off-course. I've been doing interviews with local non-profit organizations and musicians, Steve is airing some live performances. Other hosts haven't been involved in a while.
  • REQUIEM : ok thanks. And thanks for the info and help........and the listen!
  • Bob Jonkman : CKMS Community Connections: https://radiowaterloo.ca/ccc
  • Bob Jonkman : But with the studio shutdown I haven't done many. Steve Todd is rebroadcasting some live performances from Lana's Lounge over the next few weeks
  • REQUIEM : right.....that was it! I want to listen to your piece.
  • Bob Jonkman : I sometimes host CKMS Community Connections on Mondays at 11am.
  • REQUIEM : Bob....when is your CKMS Show? I tried to find it in "our shows"
  • Bob Jonkman : No, not on aNONradio. But I got my Live-To-Air login info for Tilde Radio last week, so I might do some CanCon there
  • REQUIEM : You have a show on aNONradio?
  • REQUIEM : I'll send them an email as they mention to do and try to figur eit out
  • Bob Jonkman : Uploading is similar, but uses different software. Check out https://sdf.org/ for more details on fees, &c.
  • REQUIEM : I'll look into it. Though I do like just being CKMS....if its easy enough to post on aNON then yeah why not.
  • REQUIEM : and post pre-recorded shows basically the same way as at "airtime?"
  • Bob Jonkman : Joining aNONradio (which is a part of SDF.org) is free, there are extra features for a small fee
  • REQUIEM : right
  • Bob Jonkman : Both use the same remote Live-To-Air technology as Radio Waterloo, so you can use the same setup if you ever want to go live.
  • REQUIEM : does aNONradio ask a fee? I didn't see any mention of that yet
  • Bob Jonkman : You can post prerecorded shows on aNONradio, don't know about Tilde Radio.
  • REQUIEM : If I can post R4R Shows on there
  • Bob Jonkman : Check out https://tilderadio.org/ too.
  • Bob Jonkman : I guess we can go back through the same messages again...
  • REQUIEM : I'm looking into aNONradio
  • REQUIEM : Sundays. Not usually no.......I just repost the Wednesday show usually.
  • Bob Jonkman : Are you here for live chats on Saturdays too?
  • REQUIEM : Thanks for listening anyone out there! Join me at 10 pm Wednesdays and/or Sundays at noon on CKMS.
  • guest_5104 : But it sa nice ballad actually
  • guest_5104 : "Honey" by Bobby Goldsboro was th e#1 stinke rof the 60's according to Rolling Stone
  • guest_5104 : I gott a see if its on the stinker list! lol
  • Bob Jonkman : When you were introducing that one song as the worst of 1969 I thought this might be it.
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah yes, I wondered if Try To Remember would be on the show.
  • REQUIEM : Yeah........JK lol
  • Bob Jonkman : "Ruling Class" LOL
  • REQUIEM : yeah not as chronological as is usually typical of R4R!
  • Bob Jonkman : ..jumping across decades in a single bound!
  • REQUIEM : it was a track on "Rubber Soul" from 1965...
  • Bob Jonkman : This must be one of the more obscure Beatles songs
  • REQUIEM : yeah? Send me details if/when you get a chance........thanks.
  • Bob Jonkman : aNONradio is always looking for new shows and hosts too. Hint hint.
  • REQUIEM : Great! Welcome all and thanks Bob!
  • Bob Jonkman : Got at least 7 listeners online: http://kwvoip.ca:8000/
  • REQUIEM : Oh yeah....cold tea 'whiskey " on his shows.
  • REQUIEM : So does that mean there may be another listener or two?
  • Bob Jonkman : Dino was a teetotaller? Really?
  • Bob Jonkman : Not that I'm trying to drive your listeners away or anything like that, Mr. Smart!
  • Bob Jonkman : aNONradio is at https://anonradio.net with their audio stream at http://anonradio.net:8000/anonradio
  • REQUIEM : And a happy Wednesday your way too! Welcome aNONradio!
  • Bob Jonkman : Happy Wednesday! Bringing my friends from aNONradio along again...
  • Father To Son : Hey, tomorrow is Devil's Night, and a perfect time to listen to the Father To Son "Halloween Show"
  • Bob Jonkman : Another good Street Hop in the can. Thanx, DJ Carmelo!
  • MidnightMusicFan : No DJDC tonight, DJ__Maciek is filling in. Catch him at https://www.twitch.tv/dj__maciek
  • REQUIEM : Appreciate the listen Bob
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx Mr. Smart!
  • REQUIEM : Thanks to anyone out there who was listening!
  • REQUIEM : cool.......and an old scottish beat to the song..Campbells Coming!
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, Wikipedia does have it covered: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theyre_Coming_to_Take_Me_Away,_Ha-Haaa!#Technical_background
  • REQUIEM : Thats cool! well you read it somewhere!
  • Bob Jonkman : Nothing on Wikipedia about it, so how could that be true?
  • Bob Jonkman : I remember reading that Napoleon XIV had invented a gadget that could change recording pitch without altering tempo, and the original "Ha Ha" was to showcase that technology
  • REQUIEM : It was a huge Hit. This one was the sequel.
  • Bob Jonkman : I remember sitting in front of the radio in 1966 (when I was a wee lad) and listening to the original "They're Coming To Take Me Away Ha Ha" broadcast from Radio Veronica (in the Netherlands)
  • ffog : i'm tuned in πŸ™‚
  • REQUIEM : Hello ffog
  • Bob Jonkman : Hey ffog! Follow along with the music at https://radiowaterloo.ca/stream2
  • ffog : wudup
  • REQUIEM : A bit of that..and some halloween fun! So thanks for joining!
  • Bob Jonkman : I'm expecting "Interesting and Disturbing" tonight on the R4R Hallowe'n show!
  • REQUIEM : Interesting and Disturbing...two great adjectives. Good to hear! Thanks to Bob and Natasha for the listen!
  • Bob Jonkman : Interesting, if disturbing show tonight. Thanx, Mr. Smart!
  • REQUIEM : lol me too!
  • Bob Jonkman : Oh. I always get "Tom" and "Jerry" mixed up too.
  • REQUIEM : I think the US Soldiers called the Viet Cong "Charlie."
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah. Whitman. I thought you were referring to "Charlie" as a generic American soldier...
  • REQUIEM : i mean a listener could do so......
  • REQUIEM : A lot of my show can be visually produced by going to google street view....or youtube
  • Bob Jonkman : Moving pictures, even.
  • Bob Jonkman : It's at times like this that I wish someone had invented radio with pictures.
  • REQUIEM : Thanks for listening Natasha! Yes....the show songs of 66!
  • Natasha : Walk down tv memory lane tonight!
  • REQUIEM : Good idea. So many..though they don't get the attention they should.
  • Bob Jonkman : We need a show on "Cool Bass Lines". I nominate "16 Tons", and "The Cat Came Back"
  • REQUIEM : Its a very cool Bass run!
  • guest_9283 : semi-tones I'd say. But I dunno. ...
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, a music theory question. On "These Boots Are Made For Walking" there's that descending bass line. Are those notes semi-tones, or an even smaller interval?
  • REQUIEM : I see. such tech!
  • Bob Jonkman : I'm posting from https://radiowaterloo.ca/now-playing/ where the track titles are cryptically revealed
  • REQUIEM : Hi Bob!
  • REQUIEM : That will be revealed at thre end of the show. Thanks
  • Bob Jonkman : Hi Mr. Smart! Why is this episode called "Whitman"?
  • REQUIEM : Join me at Requiem for Rock.....
  • Bob Jonkman : I wonder if DJ Steele ever drops in here during Mano A Mano
  • Jeff Carvery : The Jack and Mark Show - Funny!
  • Requiem : You gotta call-in to request that one Natasha!
  • Natasha : Play Misty for me
  • Requiem : Any suggestions for Requiem topics always welcome!
  • Requiem : No #1...don't know why?! The first Highway is number two!
  • Natasha : No highway 1? WTF Requiem?
  • guest_3693 : woooot
  • REQUIEM : Back "live' tonight Bob. Thanks as always for the listen!
  • Bob Jonkman : So this week I'm here, but Mr. Smart is not. He's got a week off, and a rerun of R4RWHEELS is playing today
  • Father To Son : Join Ben and I this Saturday at 9:00 AM for the Father To Son show this week's guest is Mark "Pontiac Lover" Guy, he's going to talk about his cars and we'll hear some great "Car" Tunes
  • REQUIEM : Requiem For Rock live now........
  • Bob Jonkman : Show notes for today's CCC at https://radiowaterloo.ca/ckms-community-connections-for-27-september-2021-last-weeks-music/
  • Bob Jonkman : Today's CKMS #CommunityConnections has all the music I didn't play last week. Including @SohaylaSmith , @MacQueensMusic , @MMasurkevitch , @PettyHalfwit , @clarissadiokno , @ParagonCause , @hypnotic_mirage , @rsantodomingo , and non #CanCon from @LOOKMUMNOCMPUTR

  • Father To Son : Hey, it's The Love Show on Father To Son Saturday at 9 AM, Song that have Love in the title
  • Deep Bass Dancer : Some fine toonz comin from da Pressure Drop
  • Bob Jonkman : Or is that "Girls' Rock"?
  • Bob Jonkman : Appears to be a repeat, "Girls Rock" on Requiem For Rock.
  • REQUIEM : ok Bob.....take care and thanks again for the listen!
  • Bob Jonkman : Great! see you then. And thanx for the show!
  • REQUIEM : typos...those fingers don't go...like you said!
  • REQUIEM : I'll join the Sunday workshop and write down the methodolgies.
  • REQUIEM : Thansk again fo ryour support and info
  • REQUIEM : It sjust that new comers see such old Posts they get a bad impression that the station is dead or the comments are disabled.
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, let me run it by TechCom. It seems like a good idea.
  • REQUIEM : a general Email to all Programmers to encourage use of this chat window would be useful.w
  • REQUIEM : the first message in this window is the congrats from Admin
  • REQUIEM : Just my input.......the old "159 thoughts on listenlive" should be got rid of onthis page.
  • Bob Jonkman : Hm. It's configured for 999 messages in the Chat
  • REQUIEM : there is a congrats message from "admin" about the successful install.
  • Bob Jonkman : Makes sense. I think the Comments stopped around the time the Chat was implemented
  • REQUIEM : It seems it goes back to the very first posting
  • REQUIEM : ok....But my input would be that when people see comments where there has been none since February then it give sthe impression that it doesn't work..........or the station is sooo dead that no one said anything for 7 months!
  • Bob Jonkman : One of the things I don't know is how long this chat window record is.
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes, the comments could be removed. I'd prefer to keep them, tho. I like the historical record.
  • REQUIEM : yes this chat works perfect and should be promoted
  • REQUIEM : is it possible to remove those old comments threads that run below and are really old?
  • Bob Jonkman : The comments used to be the only way for people to interact with show hosts. But new commenters had to get the approval stamp from a moderator, so the interaction could be delayed by days. This chat is much better.
  • REQUIEM : this box needs more Promo
  • REQUIEM : right
  • REQUIEM : Make sit seem like its not working
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes, I know. There are some shows that use the chat on Facebook, or Twitch. But I don't care much for those surveillance platforms
  • REQUIEM : i would suggest removing the old comments below the window. The last post was Feb 27th.
  • REQUIEM : "instantly"
  • REQUIEM : This chat window seems so under-utilized. So many shows that could be insyantly commented on......yet its bare.
  • REQUIEM : I'm not very techie
  • REQUIEM : ok. i don't have one or use them.
  • Bob Jonkman : Not necessary, but some of us do use webcams
  • REQUIEM : I'd like to leasrn more about postingthe sound file and the script.
  • REQUIEM : I will do that. Do I need a webcam though?
  • Bob Jonkman : If you need some assistance, join Jeff Stager and the Programming Committee for a training session some Sunday at 8:30pm. We can go over the website stuff.
  • REQUIEM : well I guess I want to find a balance....th e show takes about 3 hours to write and an hour to record, so I don't wish to spend hours. But if i could do it fairly quickly, th euploads...then yeah.
  • Bob Jonkman : Copy'n'pasting into a new post (not uploading), but the point is you wouldn't have to write anything new
  • Bob Jonkman : Uploading the Word file should work great!
  • Bob Jonkman : I use "Antenna Pod" on my phone, and "Gpodder" on my computer
  • Bob Jonkman : The podcast could be played directly from the episode post on the website, but there is an RSS link so that people can subscribe with a podcatcher.
  • REQUIEM : So I could upload the "word" file that contains the script on to the show page?
  • Bob Jonkman : The posts on the website have no practical size limit.
  • REQUIEM : and where would that podcast get played?
  • REQUIEM : Would that fit on the show page?
  • REQUIEM : well the show script is usually about 10 pages...with the SONGS highlighted.
  • Bob Jonkman : You could even include the episode's sound file. That would create an automatic podcast for your show.
  • REQUIEM : some of the stuff is one off or esoteric and difficult to find that technical info or listings
  • Bob Jonkman : Maybe a quick synopsis of the show's theme. If you want to get elaborate then you could also include the commentary that you provide on the show.
  • REQUIEM : i see
  • Bob Jonkman : Doesn't have to be elaborate, just title and artist name. Maybe the album, maybe a link back to the artist's website,
  • REQUIEM : Well I'll be away a couple of weeks ( playing reruns) and back at the end of the month . So then I'll figure that out and also finally submit that show-promo recording.
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes, on the website. Probably better to create a separate post for each episode, similar to what several other shows do.
  • REQUIEM : Thanks so much for sharingthe show with me and your input.
  • REQUIEM : On my show page?
  • REQUIEM : How do you mean?
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx Mr. Smart! Is it possible for you to post the music lists for the programs?
  • REQUIEM : Well hopefully the spirit lives on there!
  • Bob Jonkman : Probably no longer there, tho. I think they've moved their studios a few times since I was there last.
  • REQUIEM : yeah...as it will ever be.......
  • Bob Jonkman : Prominently magic-markered on the CFMU studio wall "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss"
  • REQUIEM : yes great WHO song
  • REQUIEM : yes i know...happens to me a lot!
  • Bob Jonkman : A very apropos finale
  • Bob Jonkman : *Pedantry* - the fingers don't always type what the brain tells them
  • Bob Jonkman : Pendantry is why I'm here!
  • guest_1280 : As valid as any other!
  • Natasha : The Rhino Party had a sensible platform!
  • guest_1280 : The NLP party were earnest and serious about their movement actually. The Rhinos basically a humourous mild cynicism and tongue in cheek politics.
  • Bob Jonkman : I have trouble distinguishing the Natural Law Party from the Rhinoceros Party
  • REQUIEM : yes...an unfortunate fact.
  • Bob Jonkman : Of course, I >haven't< got that...
  • Bob Jonkman : "Not enough Cash"
  • REQUIEM : Got?
  • REQUIEM : Well...more like a Tool for the Rich
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah. Got it.
  • Bob Jonkman : Politics is a pursuit for the rich...
  • REQUIEM : Not enough Cash
  • Bob Jonkman : I know, not enough candidates...
  • REQUIEM : For sure...up the Rhinos!
  • Natasha : The Rhino Party would get my vote again, if only…
  • REQUIEM : Some of the parties tonight are anti -capitalist. But no Money No Votes.
  • Bob Jonkman : I suppose the Communist Party would fall under that banner
  • Bob Jonkman : I wonder if there's an "Anti-Capitalist Party".
  • REQUIEM : Fringe means they don't get funded by the Capitalists.
  • Bob Jonkman : "Fringe" implies weird ideas and conspiracy theories. But some of these parties have sound ideas, they just don't get the votes.
  • REQUIEM : Dispute all they want...they're fringe. They can embrace it!
  • Bob Jonkman : Fringe parties -- I'll bet some members of those parties would dispute that description
  • REQUIEM : Fringe partie sof Canada the theme
  • REQUIEM : Hello...thanks for listening!
  • Natasha : Rousing topic tonight Mr. Smart.
  • Bob Jonkman : Oooh! Is this an Election episode?
  • Bob Jonkman : Just tuned in. What's the Requiem topic for tonight?
  • Pundit : Dr. Tikl waxes eloquent over the election. Punk on!
  • Bob Jonkman : Live now: Shyun Atown doing the Season Finale of "I Am Everything"
  • REQUIEM : Thanks for the listen Natasha!
  • REQUIEM : Which song was hot? Claudette Miller? Yeah that a sexy song....
  • REQUIEM : It s a hot night!
  • Natasha : Cool theme tonight Mr. Smart. And hot!
  • Bob Jonkman : See you next week!
  • REQUIEM : Take care......thanks again!
  • REQUIEM : Oh yes......Works both ways....
  • Bob Jonkman : Older people are also quick to define their own musical tastes narrowly, but shut out the music of today as "unhip"
  • guest_8900 : People are often so quick to define their own musical tastes so narrowly and shut out the music of the past as "unhip."
  • Bob Jonkman : These are shows from the archives
  • Bob Jonkman : Yeah, too bad Val's not hosting the show on CKMS any more
  • guest_8900 : Eclectic Garage.....nice concept..........across the years and genres!
  • REQUIEM : Its fun and interesting to do the Show...I learn a lot.
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx for doing them, Mr. Smart!
  • Bob Jonkman : (agreeing with "Best Synth Solo")
  • Bob Jonkman : I could agree with that... Vangelis has a few from which I might pick...
  • REQUIEM : Thanks for the listen and interest Bob. Keeps me typing them up.
  • Bob Jonkman : Gonna have to listen to the whole thing. It just got abbreviated again...
  • REQUIEM : Time constraints. sigh. Best Synth Solo ever!
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, glad you came back to the synth solo. I was a little taken aback when it ended the first time.
  • REQUIEM : I know...I've always been a bit reluctant to do a Prog Rock show due to the length of the Tracks! The ones tonight are relatively short ones.
  • Bob Jonkman : So little time. Even worse with Prog Rock, which tends to have the longest tracks in Rock Music
  • REQUIEM : The history and musicology of Rock is fascinating...
  • Bob Jonkman : Reading Wikipedia about "More". Can't listen to Requiem without having a tab open for Wikipedia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/More_(soundtrack)
  • REQUIEM : It s a cool song for sure. The Nile Song from the 1969 Album "More"
  • Bob Jonkman : Glad you included Pink Floyd. But hadn't heard The Nile Song before! A gap in my listening history that I must fix.
  • REQUIEM : those will come tonight......yes, Genesis and Yes are full on Prog!
  • Bob Jonkman : Pink Floyd is definitely on my list of Prog Rock bands, but entirely different from Yes and Genesis, which I think of as the epitome of Prog Rock Bands...
  • REQUIEM : The Nice....Pretty things...Floyd
  • REQUIEM : K.C. was definitely one of the top Prog bands...but yes there were preceding ones.
  • Bob Jonkman : King Crimson is what I used to consider the first Prog Rock. Nice to learn of even earlier Prog Rock!
  • REQUIEM : Interesting Question. Well likely not...when you're doing it your not naming it!
  • Bob Jonkman : But would these early bands have called themselves "Progressive Rock Bands"?
  • REQUIEM : Thanks again for the listen Bob!
  • Bob Jonkman : Right on time for the weekly exercise in the Listen Chat with Requiem For Rock!
  • Bob Jonkman : I'm listening to Improvfest2021, just after midnight. I don't know what I'm hearing, but it's strangely relaxing.
  • guest_717 : i see the pull down menu for "show promo"
  • guest_8705 : I'll have to go on airtime and look it over using your info
  • Bob Jonkman : And for this and all you shows, the "Album" field should be "Requiem For Rock", and give yourself credit in the "Creator" field
  • guest_8705 : ok great. Thanks a lot......
  • Bob Jonkman : It's the pull-down menu in the top-right of the Upload window. But it's probably easier to edit the track once it's uploaded.
  • guest_8705 : So upload a 40 sec clip to the Airtime soundfm........."Track Type?"
  • Bob Jonkman : Just upload it, and make sure the "Track Type" is set to "Show Promo"
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes! Something less than 45s, and we'll add it the the PSAs, StationIDs and other Promos at the start of every program.
  • guest_8705 : Well....a select Audience then! Maybe I could do a Promo slot or something?
  • Bob Jonkman : Yeh, there's no way to figure out who's catching the FM signal. Rogers doesn't share their listener statts. And listener stats on the streaming server remain low, so I'm not sure if we're catching all the streaming listeners
  • guest_8705 : I do appreciate the listen Bob. Lik e all the Hosts here its so hard to know if anyone is out there at all!
  • Bob Jonkman : Another good show! I'm really enjoying Wednesday nights the last few months!
  • REQUIEM : Guess we're the same age...yeah a swingin' number!
  • Bob Jonkman : Mac The Knife - one of my favourites. Top charting song in the month I was born!
  • REQUIEM : I agree! Cut loose old school!!
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes! Jukebox mechanical noises! Radio should have more of that!
  • guest_257 : An hour of carrillons might be too much! lol
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, the "Time" episode. I was thinking more like Carillons and bells, and such
  • guest_257 : I sort of did that a month or so ago....
  • Bob Jonkman : Not sure that's a Requiem for *Rock*, tho.
  • Bob Jonkman : There's an episode: Musical clocks!
  • guest_257 : yes...mechanical Music. Like the intricate public Clocks of Europe.
  • Bob Jonkman : No trumpets in a Draaiorgel, but all manner of percussion and animatronics
  • guest_257 : Very cool!
  • Bob Jonkman : Draaiorgels on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=draaiorgel
  • Bob Jonkman : I grew up completely normalized to the "Draaiorgel" (the "Turn Organ"), reasonably common in the Netherlands.
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, Jukeboxes and Player Pianos! More musical history on Requiem For Rock
  • guest_3545 : Always appreciate the listen! Clovis Man!
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx again, Mr. Smart! See you next week.
  • guest_4834 : Yes........"song-crafting"......gone now i suppose?
  • guest_6909 : Be-Bop Baby!!
  • guest_6909 : Its just that riff harmonized. They used it on a few songs...
  • Bob Jonkman : Gonna have to listen to that side-by-side...
  • guest_6909 : they would vocalize the riff: awww...awww...awwww....shake it up babY!
  • Bob Jonkman : No, missed that. Not familiar enough with The Beatles...
  • guest_6909 : Yes...recognize the later Beatles lift from the solo?
  • Bob Jonkman : "Party Doll" by Buddy Knox
  • Bob Jonkman : When did we lose song-crafting like this?
  • guest_1607 : Here now
  • guest_1607 : away in September a couple of Wednesdays.
  • Bob Jonkman : Thought you might have been away on holiday, and we'd miss out on the chat today
  • guest_1607 : it was recorded in the CKMS studio....
  • guest_1607 : ok..good. Its one of my Favs actually........
  • Bob Jonkman : No, this is a new one to me. But the original airdate is in the title: https://radiowaterloo.ca/now-playing/
  • guest_1607 : back with a contemporrary show next week...........
  • guest_1607 : Ah you've heard this one...yes a repeat. Summer Holiday time!
  • Bob Jonkman : A repeat of Requiem today, "Songs in the context of CLOVIS"
  • guest_5070 : In a way thats so true......yet there are other influence genres...
  • Bob Jonkman : Once you get to our ability to record music ca. 1900, it's all blues, really.
  • guest_5070 : Its great stuff.......hope you liked tonight's rock roots artists......
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes, I do like blues roots music!
  • guest_5070 : Hope y'all liked th emusic tonight!
  • guest_5070 : Finishing with the great CONWAY TWITTY!!!
  • guest_5070 : Thank you so much for listening Natasha!
  • Bob Jonkman : ! R4R, your twice-weekly geography, history, and music lesson!
  • Natasha : Fascinating show once again Mr. Smart
  • guest_5070 : That defines a "Delta"
  • guest_5070 : Its not the "shape" per se..........Its the dropping of alluvial soils from an estuary or river.....
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx, Mr. Smart!
  • Bob Jonkman : Looking at a map, I'm not sure what parts are Delta-shaped. But then, I'm here for the music and the history lesson.
  • guest_9881 : Thanks again for the listen!
  • guest_9881 : That area is called the "Arkansas Delta"..not to be confused with the Louisiana Delta
  • Bob Jonkman : Woulda thought AR is too far north to be considered part of the Mississippi Delta. But they sure got those Delta Blues!
  • Bob Jonkman : But starting off with Big Bill Broonzy is a good start!
  • Bob Jonkman : Arkansas on Requiem For Rock tonight. I thought AR only produced oppressive heat and ex-presidents
  • nattyphysicist : Cbell!!
  • cbell - the original : oui allo?
  • Bob Jonkman : Thanx for doing the show so I can listen, Mr. Smart!
  • Requiem : Thanks for listening and the info Bob!
  • Requiem : Yeah...i played "Beechwood" instead...
  • Bob Jonkman : Pennsylvania 6-5000...
  • Requiem : I know I missed a few Phone Standards....time permits so little..sigh
  • Bob Jonkman : Another mandatory tune for a phone show! Blondie's Call Me
  • Requiem : I agree. Its mandatory! Off the (Doctor) Hook!
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, Sylvia's Mother Said... Wouldn't be a complete phone show without it.
  • Requiem : Sure looks like he's a major phonophile!
  • Bob Jonkman : Evan Doorbell is one of the original Phone Phreaks
  • Requiem : Looks like he put a lot of time into Phone stuff!
  • Bob Jonkman : Evan Doorbell has some interesting phone stuff in audio files. Thinking of creating a show just for Evan Doorbell... https://www.evan-doorbell.com/
  • Requiem : Thanks Natasha.... And thanks for listening!
  • Natasha : You can call me up Mr. Smart
  • Requiem : Good to know...I'll keep that in mind! Thanks.
  • Bob Jonkman : With a bit of technical jiggery-pokery we can make the CKMS number 519-884-2567 ring on the show host's cell phone or computer. Show hosts, let me know if this is of interest to you...
  • Requiem : Hi there!
  • Bob Jonkman : Got here just in time to answer the phone!
  • guest_9437 : Always appreciate your listening and your comments! take care and have a good week!
  • guest_9437 : Says $26 Canadian. Looks interesting!
  • Bob Jonkman : Anyway, thanx for the show tonight! See you next week!
  • Bob Jonkman : Hm. Only $50 (paperback) or $70 (hardcover?) on Amazon. And $30 directly from the author! http://stjamesinfirmary.ca/purchase.html
  • Bob Jonkman : One of these days I want to get the book. But it sells for around $300! Sheesh! http://stjamesinfirmary.ca/
  • guest_9437 : T-REX, the WHO...Ritchie Valens and many more covered Summertime Blues
  • Bob Jonkman : I'd start of with "St. James Infirmary" though. If you ever want to do a thematic show on a single song, pick that! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkNutIo4TUtekBMFcTgl_xKcfUq_roEtY
  • Bob Jonkman : I don't have quite as many "Summertime Blues" covers as I thought... https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkNutIo4TUtdYBGPJyCeLDNzAjHqQd2z5
  • guest_9437 : I may have played a song more often than others....but not a whole show's worth!
  • Bob Jonkman : I think I got the idea from you. Some years ago I was driving home, and heard the same country song played over and over. Can't think of any other host who would have that idea
  • guest_9437 : I've thought of doing that too. But one hour of the same song...hmmmm
  • Bob Jonkman : I know. One of these days I want to do a radio called "Variations and Interpretations" where I spend an entire hour playing the same song over and over, but as covers by different people, mashups, remixes, &c.
  • guest_9437 : Well that was a cover of the original Eddie Cochran version of the song from 1959
  • Bob Jonkman : I'm thinking Summertime Blues by the Flying Lizards πŸ™‚
  • guest_9437 : yeah those are great Summer songs too. Eddie Cochran rules!
  • Bob Jonkman : Classic indeed. Also "Summertime Blues" and "Summertime (and the Living is Easy)"
  • guest_6264 : Its a great "DJ" song......as in Clint Eastwood's "play Misty for me..."
  • Bob Jonkman : I had to look that up. I thought the name of the song was "I Get Misty Over You"
  • Bob Jonkman : https://genius.com/Ella-fitzgerald-misty-lyrics
  • guest_6264 : Yeah. I like to throw in a few incongruous transitions! Misty is such a beautiful number.
  • Bob Jonkman : Quite the transition - "Bring Me The Head Of John The Baptist" to "Misty"...
  • guest_3043 : Hi Bob! Thanks for coming.......
  • Bob Jonkman : Can't believe it's Wednesday night already, and time for another Requiem For Rock. Hi there, Mr. Smart!
  • Bob Jonkman : Francis Claire is On The Air! Doing a pretty good job too!
  • nattyphysicist : Dr Tikl is amazing
  • Bob Jonkman : On today's CKMS #CommunityConnections we have an interview with @PhoenixLazare and will be playing tracks from her album released this past Friday! Join us on the FM airwaves at 11am on CKMS-FM 102.7, or from our Internet stream at https://radiowaterloo.ca/stream/
  • Bob Jonkman : Hi c260: Yes, absolutely normal. Parts of the Caribbean (notably Guayana) has a large Indian diaspora.
  • c260 : I'm so confused. The show I'm listening to is called "Caribbean Spice" and the lyrics are in Hindi. Is this normal?
  • guest_5051 : Thanks back at you Bob. Peace.

  • Bob Jonkman : I know... Radio is such a one-way medium. What did radio hosts do before chat windows were invented?
  • guest_2634 : Good to know someone's out there.......!
  • Bob Jonkman : Selfish interest in getting it back up -- chatting with the show host!

  1. I do not know what is wrong with your CKMS 102.7 FM logo because since four weeks I can not open your radio station to listen to your programs on-line.When I click on LISTEN LIVE it does not open.

  2. Crazy Prodigy mixes at the end of Souljah Sessions, wish I was recording. Locked in for Street hop next!

  3. Nice, I’m liking DNB a lot recently. I’m still new to the genre, nice to hear some alternative music in the region.

  4. Hey Jesse Stewart, your Uncle Roland & Aunt Yvonne are listening from Campbell River, your home town on Vancouver Island!

  5. into the void is the most intense, far reaching radio show you’ll ever hear. chris sherren is a musical genious. keep listening. there is so much here.

  6. Yoooo!!! Thank you for playing all the classic 2008ighties / BRKF$T CLUB songs. You just took me back too a really fun time in my life lol
