Heavy Ben's Record Den? Sounds like you're broadcasting from just next door!

Tuning in from self-isolation in Montreal!

Hi Dandy! This must be the strangest vacation you've ever taken. You can't even leave the province.

8:07 PM, April 11th, 2020
Dandy, you should update your travel blog this week while on holiday....

8:13 PM, April 11th, 2020
Great chill tunes Heavy Ben. Thoughts on future shows/themes?

8:14 PM, April 11th, 2020
Jas Nasty
Nice gentle show Ben thank you

8:14 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
Hey Jas nice to hear from you... Gentle Ben in the chill house ;)

8:16 PM, April 11th, 2020
Keyboard Paul
Excellent harp solo

I'm of a mind to produce another chill show like tonight if people dig it. I really found it helpful to immerse myself in these kinds of sounds. It has a physical, calming effect to slow things down

8:18 PM, April 11th, 2020
Today we learned there's a character named Steve Haines in Grand Theft Auto 5. So yeah pretty good vacation so far.

8:19 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
Keyboard Paul - seeking some shredding on the harp, are you?

8:21 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
That's hilarious about GTA5. Can you send Mr. Haines a screenshot?

8:23 PM, April 11th, 2020
Thanks for the chill vibes, Ben.

8:26 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
Hey Mel! Glad you're in the zone

8:33 PM, April 11th, 2020
Always interesting stuff, Ben. Finally chill around this household.

As for future shows, I am working with JD Emmanuel (long synth track that just played) to do an interview and profile in the near future!

8:38 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
Thanks Rob. You could play this to put the kids to sleep. They'd probably find it intolerably boring!

8:40 PM, April 11th, 2020
AHHHHH....I am so relaxed....

8:44 PM, April 11th, 2020
Ben Armstrong (host)
Boards of Canada has that effect on me. I find this song is somehow nostalgic even if you have never heard it before

8:47 PM, April 11th, 2020
Thanks for the Saturday night soundtrack Ben! That's very cool news about JD Emmanuel! Looking forward to that. Cheers!

8:47 PM, April 11th, 2020

Good evening Scott! At least three soundtrack references for you tonight, in case you are trainspotting...

Thank you Hardy’s VCR Repair Shop

Fait accompli! It appears as though this music has put everyone to sleep or at least in a state where checking your computer/phone is no longer necessary. Thanks for tuning in to Heavy Friends. Great to have all the comments.

9:58 PM, April 11th, 2020
Great show!

4:17 PM, April 13th, 2020
More Phil Collinson!
