About me:

I host the second half of the Thursday Morning Special Blend on CKCU - cutting edge music, current events, community and arts happenings, news and more.

I also write for North by East West (see feed below), a blog dedicated to Canadian Music, with perspectives from every corner of the country. Read it often - it's a fantastic source of information about our great musicians.

"Got no social graces, Never know my place, One thing I am sure of, You can't judge a man by his race, Birth don't come easy, Freedom doesn't come cheap, Rules and worlds get swept away, While you waste your time in sleep"
