Listen to the May 22, 2016, episode of the Strombo Show. 


"No detail or time on the throw-away line
Now brawn is the victor the loser the mind
If not for the ruins of what was once done
No beauty for anyone.” — Daniel Romano, “(Gone is) All But a Quarry of Stone”

The Strombo Show ran 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.

It has been 15 years since Missy Elliott dropped fire with "Get UR Freak On." The legendary hip-hop icon visited the program to take us to that moment, explore the influential trail that she's burned since then, talk about the anxiety of her surprise Super Bowl performance and the role of female MCs today.

Daniel Romano is the king of mosey. His Juno-nominated, prolific, chameleonic artistry is known thanks to his collaborations with Julie Doiron, Frederick Squire, City nd Colour and, of course, Attack in Black, but Romano has truly found his home as a solo performer. His ability not to genre-identify finds his sounds ranging from countrypolitan to Britpop, spaghetti western to country soul. He's a transformer man, and even with his release of his latest album, Mosey, this week, he announces that he'll be packaging another album, entitled Ancient Shapes.

Also, we premiered brand spankin' new tunage from Adam Baldwin, the Velveteins and Nico Yaryan. We remembered those legends who passed on recently: Prince, Isao Tomita, John Stabb of Government Issue and OG Beastie Boys member John Barry.

You know what to do: Lock it. Crank it! Join the collective.
