The Strombo Show, Nov. 29, 2015

Listen to the Nov. 29, 2015, episode of the Strombo Show.


The Strombo Show runs​ the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos was joined by Saul Williams and Corb Lund for intimate performances and conversations to celebrate music.

Williams is the poet laureate of hip-hop. He is known for his blend of poetry into music and emerging through the scene in the 1998 film Slam. Since earning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance that year, he released six albums that have featured production by Rick Rubin and Trent Reznor, five books of poetry, plus he's starred in the Broadway musical Holler If You Hear Me, based on the life and poetry of 2Pac.

In the House of Strombo, Williams celebrates his upcoming album, Martyr. Loser. King., discusses his personal experience with the Paris tragedies, shares his thoughts toward the modern political landscape in America and performs a verse from his track "Coltan as Cotton."

Corb Lund's songs have earned countless accolades that include Juno and Canadian Country Music Association awards, but nothing of his catalogue has been as cohesive and diverse as his latest release, Things That Can't Be Undone. He'll explore the political themes of the album, revisit his speed-metal band's history and strum a few tunes.

Also, George is joined by two of the loudest voices in Canada hip-hop: K-Os confesses his appreciation for Tom Waits and Jazz Cartier, one of the names on the rise, nods to the artistry of John Mayer.

You know the drill. Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!​
