The Strombo Show will run 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. We'll be ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.
George Stroumboulopoulos will be joined by Andy Stochansky, singer-songwriter known for his accomplished work alongside Ani Difranco, for an intimate conversation and acoustic session. After seven years with Difranco, Andy traded his drumkit for a guitar and has earned praise from the likes of David Byrne.
Also, our good friend Bob Mackowycz Jr. returns to the program for some musical exploration and a few friends visit to make some requests - Snoop Dogg, Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene, Buffy Sainte Marie and Max Kerman of Arkells.
As always, we'll be tipping our hats to those ground-breakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spinning the best new tracks, paying tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we'll send you into the collective horizontal with the Big Lie Down.
