We’re back with a brand new season of Ongoing History of New Music shows starting this weekend. By my calculations, this the 20th season of this show. I had NO idea I’d be doing this twenty years on. None.
First up, a look at the early years of Mumford & Sons. Not just the first album, either. There was a whole TON of stuff that came before that record. It’s one of those deep pre-history things, you know?
Let’s go deeper. One of the guys was in this band before he bailed to join M&S. Wild, huh?
And here’s some of the earliest M&S every recorded.
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
We’re still looking for more affiliates 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. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do. Oh, and did I mention that it looks like the show will start running in Singapore in January? I have a meeting with them on Tuesday to seal the deal.
Here’s a look at what’s coming up. Just be aware that this schedule is subject to change.
