Hi everyone, welcome to Heavy Friends! Hey hillbilly... indeed Goat are a bit of a mystery but I can assure you that they are indeed real musicians. Overlap with Hills and knows what else.

Dope beats. Had not heard of Wordburglar/Beatmason. Happy end of 2022!

Steve Kirkland (host)
Something weird about listening live to something I could've listened to in the past, something wired about listening in, period... always love listening live, Ben. Cheers

Amazing show in the best traditions of CKCU. Solid entertainment 100%

9:48 PM, December 3rd, 2022
Ben Armstrong (host)
I appreciate your comment, hillbilly. It's a complex topic around profanity for effect and taking it to uncalled for places. I like hip hop for the production skills and rappers expressing themselves. Unfortunately there is a lot of pointless boasting, violence and swearing.

Chris I.
fun ride Ben!

9:49 PM, December 3rd, 2022
Ben Armstrong (host)
Yes Dan that Ingredient album is a cool new one out of Toronto. Gotta keep an ear on Telephone Explosion.

9:50 PM, December 3rd, 2022

Thank you Terry! 47 years of CKCU is quite the tradition now...
