TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS ::: JANUARY 30, 2018

Good afternoon radio people. RIP THE GREAT HUGH MASEKELA. Funky Revolutions did an amazing tribute on the show this past Saturday so check that out on our archives.  There’s someone else who passed this week and his band crept onto the charts at number 23.

Lots of new names on the charts this week. That’s how we like it.

Finally big CONGRATS to the Lux Magna Festival crew for the inaugural edition of their new fest. Glad it was a success.  Now rest up.

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS ::: JANUARY 9, 2017

 

Hi friends,

Alright we are back in the building, having survived a most brutal cold snap. So bad in fact I got a frostbit nose going to a show on Friday night. Things are still slow and lot hasn’t changed on the charts since we had a lot of holiday programming. Some new faces on there though so have a peek. RIP FRANCE GALL. Here she is in full on Montreal Canadians kit!
