As I mentioned, last Thursday was my first day back from my HBR summer hiatus. Good news for all you far flung folks though. CKLU is now streaming on the world wide web!! That means you can log on and listen to HBR every Thursday from 6 -8pm should your little heart desire. Click here to link to the live streaming.

Notes this week
- that Entire Cities record might be my new favourite record at the station;
- new Statues stuff??? Yay!! Check them out, they're from Sudbury and they're amazing!
- Marc brought me back that Eric's Trip record from Toronto months ago and this was the first chance I've had to listen to it as our turntable is stuck on 45....
- Listening to that Cat Power album on vinyl while alone is really a shame.....
- Please tell me the rest of that new My Morning Jacket record doesn't sound like "Highly Suspicious"....
- I know I say it everytime but Day-um!! Tom Waits is sexy on the cover of that album...
- New Sudburian Nathan Lawr is all over the new Fembots record and recorded a chunk of it in his very own basement! Good on ya Nathan!
