The Strombo Show, November 1, 2015

Listen to the November 1, 2015, episode of the Strombo Show.


"No matter how old, how young, how sick. I mean something." — Peaches, "I Mean Something."

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 welcomes the prolific icon that put feminist electro-clash on the map, Peaches.

She returned with Rub, her sixth studio album after a six-year absence from music, enlisting collaborations with her friends Kim Gordon, Kathleen Hanna and Feist. While on musical hiatus, she starred in a series of self-produced stage productions and released an expansive photographic diary. Right now, as she says, is a good time for Peaches. With the inaugural Polaris Heritage Prize stamped to her name for 2000'sTeaches of Peaches, the celebration of her influence is strong.

In the House of Strombo, she'll perform cuts from her latest album, cover Tina Turner and discuss her legacy, the impact of Carole Pope and the results of the Canadian election. 

George will exclusively debut tunage from Lady Brett Ashley and celebrate the latest releases of the week with the Magnificent Seven. Noah Reid and Paula Brancati perform a song from their film, People Hold On.

We'll also be joined by a few friends of the program including The Prodigy and Fast Romantics. 

Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!
