The Strombo Show: ANTI-FLAG & Will Sasso

Editorial Staff
The Strombo Show, June 21, 2015

Listen to the June 21, 2015, episode of the Strombo Show.


"I lost my baby to a foreign war. She was cut down in the gunfire of the western world."

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.

George Stroumboulopoulos was joined by celebrated punk legends and friends of the program, ANTI-FLAG. We were also be joined by MADTV alumni Will Sasso to talk about his latest new television series, Fool Canada.

ANTI-FLAG are as relentless as they were when they plugged in 20-years-ago. Their political and social views are louder and their latest effort 'American Spring' declares a broader scope from the Pittsburgh-based punk band, sparking a fire in response to "the failure of the Obama era." They joined George for an intimate conversation and performance in the home, including a Pete Seeger cover.

We commemorated the birth of Halifax by hitting the coast through one of the most definitive moments in Canadian music and as the evening winded down, we dusted off the six-string acoustic and gathered round the campfire. 

As always, we tipped our hats to those ground-breakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spun the best new tracks, paid tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and went into the horizontal with the Big Lie Down.

Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!
