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. Along the way, we're joined by musician John Carter Cash and CBC Radio's Lana Gay. It'll be a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, if you will.
While digging through his late father Johnny Cash's old recordings, John Carter Cash discovered an unreleased album. Out Among The Stars has been described as bridging the gap between the periods of Cash's life: the reckless outlaw and the melancholy wanderer. We'll spin some of the unheard tracks on the program. He'll also discuss his family life, being raised by Johnny and June Carter, which he details in his recent book House Of Cash: The Legacies of My Father Johnny Cash.
Plus, CBC Music host Lana Gay returns to the program to revisit 2004 and talk about how a perfect storm of Canadian indie albums in that year created a shift. Think: Arcade Fire, Chromeo, Feist, Tegan & Sara and more. It's always an event to have her voice in the broom closet.
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.
