"There is nothing harder than to stop in the middle of a battle and say you're sorry."
The Strombo Show runs the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.
Iconic singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco joins George Stroumboulopoulos for an acoustic performance and intimate interview in the House of Strombo.
DiFranco is celebrating her 18th studio album, Allergic to Water, on which she declares her reservations about big data and internet-induced ADD with a focus on long-term relationships, motherhood and spirituality.
She strums a few songs off the album while also sharing her thoughts on Ferguson, her place in the folk community and accepting her maternal role. She debuts a previously unreleased song: "The Pacifist's Lament."
Also, with NCAA March Madness in full force, we've decided to dust off some of the finest musical odes to basketball. This means everything from Kobe Bryant to Shaquille O'Neal, Cheech and Chong to Charles Mingus.
As always, we tip our hats to those groundbreakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spinning the best new tracks, paying tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we send you into the horizontal with the Big Lie Down.
Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!
