George Stroumboulopoulos revisits some of his favourite sessions.


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.

This week, George Stroumboulopoulos revisits some of his favourite sessions that filled his Toronto home with sound and conversation. It all began when Dilly Dally turned up. Along the way, there were icons like the Cult, game-changers like Jazz Cartier, midnight shows with Hannah Georgas, daytime distortion with the Kills and an inimitable banger courtesy of Arkells.

Relive those moments in their entirety below, including a bonus Motown party set from Arkells and their cover of the Tragically Hip's "My Music at Work."
