To help celebrate '90s Week, we asked Brent Bambury to look back at his time on the influential CBC radio show Brave New Waves. Bambury, who now hosts Day 6 on CBC Radio One, was host of the BNW for a decade.
Here, as Brave New Waves celebrates its 30th anniversary, Bambury shares a few personal memories, and 10 selections from the show's eclectic playlist.
"I was host of CBC's Brave New Waves from 1985-1995. So for me '90s music is a continuation of the wilder indie experimentation of the '80s. Everything changed for indie music after Nirvana, and I think that's reflected in what happened in pop and indie stuff in the second half of the '90s.
