Listen to the March 1, 2015, episode of the Strombo Show.
"What we do in the darkness, will come to light."
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 our friends, the multi-JUNO winning boys of ARKELLS for an acoustic performance and intimate interview in the House of Strombo.
Max Kerman, Mike Deangelis and Anthony Carone of ARKELLS, those relentless road-warriors from the Hammer solidified themselves as Canadian rock mainstays with their debut album 'Jackson Square' in 2008. To celebrate their third record 'High Noon', the boys return to spin some records, acoustically perform some cuts and debut a stellar rendition of Elton John's 'Philadelphia Freedom'.
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 sent you into the horizontal with the Big Lie Down.
Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!
