The community of musicians is like any other. While most people are good, you will have your bad actors: musicians who murder, rape, rob and commit all sorts of horrible crimes. That’s the focus of this week’s show: alt-rockers who have ended up in the slammer doing hard time.
The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:
- 102.1 The Edge/Toronto – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11 with archives show Tuesday and Wednesday at midnight.
- Live 88-5/Ottawa
- 107.5 Dave-FM/Kitchener
- FM96/London – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11
- The Drive/Kingston
- 98.1 The Bridge/Lethbridge – Saturday night at 6, Sunday morning at 10am
- Sonic 102.9/Edmonton
- The Zone/Victoria
- Live 105/Halifax
And if things go well, the show will soon be heard on a few other stations. We just lost Winnipeg this week (not our fault; a format change). I’m also looking for outlets in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Red Deer, Grand Prairie, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor, Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. Anyone? Anyone want to start a campaign?
Meanwhile, if you want to go really deep into some of this stories, head to Flink.to, which is the official archive of all things Ongoing History. This is a place for super fans of alt-rock. Hope you can take a look and start contributing to the stories.
