Show that Spring has Sprung. Blast Rock and Roll Report Radio from your windows tonight!

Rock and Roll Report Radio radio is back tonight on CKUT 90.3 FM for another blast of primo rock and roll guaranteed to pump your woofers and make your ears happy! Tonight will be the first night in awhile where I don’t have a live performance happening in the studio but instead I will be playing a bunch of great tracks from Play the Angel, Theory of a Deadman, Sylvana White, The Trews, Sloan and much more.

In the Montreal area tune in at 90.3 FM or online at www.ckut.ca from 10:00 – 11:00 PM EST and remember, no headphones! You need to play this stuff loud on speakers and piss off at least one neighbor! Got it? Excellent….

So please be patient while we tweek out bits and rework our bytes to make the site an even more fun and informative place for you to get your rock and roll kicks.

Tune in tonight for a special edition of Rock and Roll Report Radio as I pay tribute to my dear friend Sharon Vaughn

I invite you all to tune in tonight (August 9th, 2010) from 10:00 – 11:00 PM EST for a special edition of Rock and Roll Report Radio where I will pay tribute to a dear friend and fan of The Rock and Roll Report, Sharon Vaughn.

Sharon recently lost her courageous 3 year battle with cancer and I felt it only appropriate to spend the hour playing some of her favourite songs as my special tribute to her.

If you are in Montreal you can listen at 90.3 FM. If you are outside the Montreal area you can listen online at www.ckut.ca.

As Sharon rarely missed a show I know she will be listening with her speakers cranked up to 11. I hope you can tune in as well.

Thank you.
