Rock and Roll Report Radio is heard once a month on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal and online at www.ckut.ca from 10:00 – 11:00 PM EST. For those of you not familiar with the show it is part of Doug Ford’s long running eclectic music show the Drastic Plastic Program heard every Monday in that time slot on CKUT. Doug has graciously shared his airtime with me and a another co-conspirator Armitage Shanks so I can bring you a taste of all the incredible rock and roll by bands and musicians that are either unsigned or signed to smaller independent record labels. I personally believe that any of the songs that I play would fit right into any commercial rock radio playlist of the powers that be only had the guts to seek out some of this stuff that is only available if you get off your ass and look.
In addition to the radio show, I also host the Rock and Roll Report Podcast which comes out every week and features 10 slices of primo rock and roll from the same batch of indie and unsigned bands and musicians. I think you will definitely agree with me when you say that all of this stuff is just amazing rock and roll. And as the Rock and Roll Report is a niche free zone I will play anything from punk to power pop, hard rock to heavy metal and anything in between. Its all rock and roll to me.
