Come on in, the proverbial water's fine

6:08 PM, July 25th, 2020
Jeb
Just dove in.

6:09 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Glad, Jeb... are you a swimmer or water-treader?

6:11 PM, July 25th, 2020
Wally
The temperature is just right 👍

6:14 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Wally, you called it

6:16 PM, July 25th, 2020
Jeb
More of a floater.

6:16 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Good one, Jeb

6:17 PM, July 25th, 2020
Jeb
New Dream Syndicate is pretty trippy. Interesting concept that worked for them.

6:19 PM, July 25th, 2020
Dave JC
Sticky so far`

6:22 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Yeah, very long tracks. Having (you and I) seen them live, I'm really enjoying what they're doing now, entering their fifth decade (80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, 20s)

6:24 PM, July 25th, 2020
Jeb
Very excellent releases from the DS of late. Glad we went.

6:25 PM, July 25th, 2020
Wally
I would have liked to see the Dream Syndicate but missed it

6:30 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Sticky indeed, Dave...

6:33 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Wally, you missed a great show

6:33 PM, July 25th, 2020
Jeb
Wally, I think it was cool we found the time to get to Toronto for the show.. I think Steve and I needed a show like that to make up for the canceled Peter Perret show we had tickets for earlier that year.

6:37 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Disappointing to think again about not getting to see Mr. Perrett

6:43 PM, July 25th, 2020
Wally
Jeb, yes I remember those days when we would go to Toronto for shows, did that quite a few times although not in recent years. That's too bad about the Peter Perret show as his last two albums are great, and his earlier stuff is legendary. So many shows and tours cancelled. Glad you got to go.

6:45 PM, July 25th, 2020
Wally
Just saw this on Twitter from the band Even As We Speak: "Hop on to the airwaves! A song called LEAVES from our new album #Adelphi playing. A gorgeous videoclip will be released for this early August. Thanks @CKCUFM"

6:50 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Cheers Wally

6:54 PM, July 25th, 2020
Relic
Hey there big guy. Great show tonight.

6:55 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
A relic is more than a Pink Floyd album title, clearly. Cheers R

6:57 PM, July 25th, 2020
Ian
Hey VCBers! Love that Ronson box. All the goodies in one place! I was lucky to see Medicine Show era Dream Syndicate. Great to hear that they're still a force.

7:10 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Cheers Ian... I can only remember enough to claim that I too saw them in the 80s... wish I could remember any details beyond that

7:21 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Cat got the tongue of those (un)fazed by the shift?

7:32 PM, July 25th, 2020
Wally
Got very blissed out for a while and suited my evening walk and now back to the more upbeat. Thanks also for playing the Exploding Flowers song 👍

7:41 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Cheers Wally

7:43 PM, July 25th, 2020
Dave JC
It's funny, I don't know that Steve Hillage song, but I was think that sounds like s'thing he'd do.

7:53 PM, July 25th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hope you enjoyed... Thanks for listening
