I’m back in the office after a short trip back to Ottawa for Megaphono — it was real nice getting to catch up with the CHUO & Ottawa Explosion crews and meet some rad new folks. Saw Un Blonde, Lido Pimienta, She-Devils, H de Heutz, Best Fern (above), and more great acts that I am forgetting… I also caught Priests back home in Montreal last night, and it was well worth the frigid trek down to the Casa — would definitely recommend seeing them live if they roll through your town.

hi friends. my name is owen and i am hosting this radio program. i will play the best music youtube vids with sub 2k views recordings of people yelling stuff not made by humans the remains of the old internet empire songs made specifically to wreck computers and all your favourite hits.
