I know I'd break the TV, that's why I do radio.

1:32 PM, May 4th, 2022
Afternoon Renny. Listening in for the first half hour anyway. On demand for the rest

1:36 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Any listeners? I don't bite.

1:37 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Hello Nancy! Thanks for listening. You are a true Rioteer.

1:38 PM, May 4th, 2022
Wow! A blast from my past, 41 years ago.

1:45 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
I still have an RV poster. I used to take down posters that I really liked. If they were in clubs, I'd grovel first.

1:50 PM, May 4th, 2022
Johnny Loan
Awesome! Need this today! Feeling slightly homicidal (I kid).

1:53 PM, May 4th, 2022
Johnny Loan
Television Viewer was eerily cool. And always love me some SMOASP

1:55 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
I give up, Johnny Loan, I was never good with abbreviations. What exactly is SMOASP?

2:02 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
If I was taking an musicology course, I'd love to write an essay, arguing that Batman is one the most underrated influences on the creation of punk rock.

2:05 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
The song, not the caped crusader.

2:05 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Think of it, Basie's arranger, Neil Hefti is the cat who wrote Batman.

2:09 PM, May 4th, 2022
Johnny Loan
Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet! (SMOASP)

2:17 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
More coming up. Whenever I'm short on Can Con I turn to the Shadowy Men. It's amazing how short some of their songs are.

2:18 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Ha! Ha! Ha! I thought SMOASP meant Some More Old Assed Smokin' Punk.

2:33 PM, May 4th, 2022
It's great to hear the the classic Ottawa tracks there. They still stack up well against any other great tracks of the day. Congrats on another fine show, Renny. I mean you and Ian, wow, musicical imagination at its best You guys have the best radio show that Ottawa has ever heard.

2:43 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Wow! Thanks Frankie. My head just grew three sizes.

2:46 PM, May 4th, 2022

Go Go Harlem Baby is a desert island disc.

2:55 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
I don't think he's singing about gum in the song "Juicy Fruit".

3:03 PM, May 4th, 2022
Thanks for the disc recommendation there. Only the second track I've ever heard from Gene Simmons, the first being "Haunted House". That evil demon from Kiss should have paid royalties for stealing his name.

3:04 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Ha! Ha! Ha! I agree. I love that song Haunted House. I've got about 4 versions of it. Have you heard the original by Johnny Fuller?

3:07 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
Neko Case with The Sadies.

3:24 PM, May 4th, 2022
Amazing Show! What a fantastic TV theme, too. And I hope with this comment that I make the Interactive list as long as the playlist!

3:24 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
It's just because I'm a verbose MF, Ian.

3:25 PM, May 4th, 2022
Renny G (host)
And thanks to SMOASP & the Demics I made 37% Can Con. Canada's culture is currently safe.

3:31 PM, May 4th, 2022
Ha ha, too funny!
