Volume, Contrast, Brilliance
Saturday October 17th, 2020 with Steve Kirkland
1919 not... 2020 (ugh)

Next week (24 October) and the subsequent two (Hallowe'en night and November 07) will be Funding Drive programs, absent the benefit of a co-host, two turntables, two CD players and live interaction... The interactive CKCU Comment feature will prevail to facilitate your comments along with my thanks for your support. As CKCU-FM heads towards half a century of providing Ottawa and the l'Outaouais and (more recently) those outlying wherever with great radio, we continue to rely on and appreciate donations from listeners, friends, family... from near or far. Tonight, indulge in two long sets of music, sans interruption... as for the next three shows, we'll be asking you to indulge us -- we need your support keeps us on the air.

Just tuned in. Can't say no to a good cover of In-Between Days :)

6:11 PM, October 17th, 2020
No BBQ this week - it's pizza night 😊 Did you hear that Hambi Haralambous (of Hambi & The Dance / Tontrix) passed away yesterday?

6:11 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Eh, A?

6:13 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hey Wally! I usually learn of musicians' deaths from others... raise a slice to Hambi

6:14 PM, October 17th, 2020
Yeah ;) Liking the Joy Division cover as well

6:16 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
You can name that tune in... how many notes?

6:17 PM, October 17th, 2020
Paul Barlow who played for a time in Hambi & The Dance sent me an email this afternoon and told me as we had been emailing back and forth this past week talking about the band and he said he might have some demos by them which I would love to hear. Paul recorded a cool cover of an Sound song for our Adrian Borland tribute a while back which we hope to release soon.

6:18 PM, October 17th, 2020
Cool Joy Division cover 👍

6:19 PM, October 17th, 2020

Love the Black Planet and Steve Hillage tracks so far.

6:25 PM, October 17th, 2020

I'm guessing a theme here so far! Any Nouvelle Vague coming up?

6:27 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Watched the Star Trek pilot episode for the first time... inspired to revisit mostly long-forgotten episodes...

6:27 PM, October 17th, 2020
Apologies for the late response. I'll be honest, right when the singing started, I knew it was that song.

6:28 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
When you know it's THAT song, that's when it's THAT

6:29 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
No NV Mr. JC... next week maybe? Please no spoilers re today's EPL results... the day was spoilt for me by another expected late collapse of The Blues

6:36 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Lemmy could('ve) be(en) king

6:38 PM, October 17th, 2020

Steve Kirkland (host)
No buts, either

6:49 PM, October 17th, 2020
True! Like many listeners, I really appreciate the effort that you and other CKCU DJ's put into getting the shows on the air. Keep on keepin' on!

Will be groundbreaking territory for the next three programs, pre-recording Funding Drive shows... gone are the phone line and the ritual of someone coming into the studio from the Phone Room to advise us of an incoming pledge... will be upgraded this Monday to include information on how to Donate online

Steve Kirkland (host)
Apropos of nothing I recommend: and whatever further parts thereof ensue

7:28 PM, October 17th, 2020
sire of sirest, wow! no-one knoweth how to show up in person or pay with cash. I just learned how to use my credit card. Lemmy sounded more romantic than the David on Heroes! How do I cover the word 'thanks"? in autre language?

7:36 PM, October 17th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Mikep, the man played himself in a movie living in a closet with whatever possessions he had... how romantic is that?

7:37 PM, October 17th, 2020
Mike P
