Episode #364

It’s Halloween, and although (for a change) we had a full show planned with tons of spooky & scary tunes to get the ghosts & goblins ready for the big day, I played a dirty trick on myself, and it definitely wasn’t a treat, I left my iPod and the entire show at home! What happens when a totally technology-dependent radio host tries to make up a show on the spot? Now that’s scary! Luckily, Del Barber dropped by to chat about his upcoming shows, and we bestow an annual honour upon him.

  1. Hey Jeff,

    Man, I haven’t listened to old school Weakerthans in quite a while but that was great! It brought me back to the highschool days, listening to them, and how they were so spot on with their lyrics like you said. They made me feel good about my awkwardness haha, which was a beautiful thing. If you have tickets to the show in Saturday, I would definately love to get my hands on them and would be into making some sort of deal.

    Let me know!
