* The Legion Of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra live in the CiTR studio *

Today on the show we are joined by six members of a Vancouver institution – the highly original and remarkable band known as The Legion Of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra! On a fateful day in 2002 ‘Mr Fireman’ decided to create a horn from a stick of elderberry wood. He was impressed with how the horn played and this inspired him to form a band which was to be composed of local enthusiasts playing a selection of his home-made instruments.  Tossed into the mix of the band’s package is sharp social commentary in the lyrics of the band’s joyfully played and harmonized tunes.  Local Vancouverites can regularly experience the thrills of a live Legion Of Flying Monkeys show and the band has even travelled as far as Spain to spread the word.  Mr Fire Man and friends play four of their tunes live in the studio today!

* Featuring D.O.A *

Given it’s May Day today, it’s fitting to return to the music of D.O.A. Joe Keithley formed this politically aware and now long-running hard-core band in 1978. And as you will hear from the two tracks we play from their recent live album ‘Welcome To Chinatown’, the current version of the band is as blistering as ever. The years have also not diminished the power of Keithley’s progressive lyrical attack. Keep an ear out for more new music from D.O.A before the year is out.

And it’s New Zealand Music Month!  So we kick off the celebrations with two new tracks apiece from established Kiwi bands Scalper and Shihad, and introduce listeners to quality new AAA Records signing Radioglo.

Happy Halloween 2014! We start the show with a handful of older Australian songs that have a loose Halloween theme – firstly three songs with ‘blood’ in the title, followed by three songs with ghost in the title! The remainder of the show features brand new Canadian music, including tracks from Jordan Klassen, Angie Inglis and more.

* Featuring tracks by Sydney band The Whitlams as tribute to the passing of former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam *

This past week marked the passing of the 21st Prime Minister of Australia – Gough Whitlam. He was 98 years old.  Gough was PM from 5 December 1972 – 11 November 1975.  During this period he enacted a wide range of progressive policies, including free health care and university education, Aboriginal land rights and the establishment of the publicly-funded 2JJJ radio, which became the much-loved institution JJJ.  He even inspired the formation of a band – The Whitlams, formed by songwriter/pianist Tim Freedman, and the late Stevie Plunder and Andy Lewis.   We play three early Whitlams’ songs today, including their ‘theme song’ of sorts called ‘Gough’ which references the famous and controversial ‘dismissal’ of Gough as PM, by the Governor General, on Nov 11 1975.
