The Strombo Show will run the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive.
We'll be ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new. George Stroumboulopoulos will be joined by Dallas Green, also known as City and Colour, for an acoustic performance and intimate conversation.
Before the release of his fourth studio album, The Hurry And The Harm, Green performed a set of farewell shows with Alexisonfire, the hardcore band that he initially made his name with. This album is the first time that he's been able to focus on one project, and there's another world that has arrived with it — his Juno Award-winning solo career has elevated his name to marquee billing. On this episode, he'll reflect on those pressures, dynamic shifts and more in a deeply intimate conversation with George, having influenced each other's careers since the early days of Alexisonfire.
Also, we'll unravel wall-to-wall sounds of the summer. We'll trip through time, from coast to coast, playing the likes of Best Coast, The Ramones, The Ohio Players, Neil Young, The Supremes and Bobby Womack.
As always, we'll be tipping our hats to those ground-breakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spinning the best new tracks on the Magnificent Seven, paying tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we'll send you into the collective horizontal with the Big Lie Down.
Get on in here! Join the collective.
