Today, not a band or single artist, but a radio show, George Stroumboulopoulos‘ radio show. It can be heard live every Sunday night from 8 – 11 PM local time on CBC Radio 2, or archived on SoundCloud. He features great music spanning many genres, and of course features great Canadian music.
I am embedding his episode from September 30, which features an interview with the very awesome Canadian punk rock band Propagandhi! I saw Propagandhi live a few weeks back, and, as always, they put on a great show! This was the first time I saw them since they released their first album without John K. Samson (Today’s Empires, Tomorrow’s Ashes), who would go on to form The Weakerthans, and he also released his first solo album (Provincial) earlier this year. Todd Kowalski replaced John on bass and occasional vocal duties. Todd came from I-Spy, another Winnipeg punk band, and gave them a harder sound. Propagandhi since added David “Space Beaver” Guillas as a second guitarist (he has played on their last two albums).
