As many of you may know (or don’t know), I host a weekly radio program. The show is called Needles & Threads, and is on our community station 100.9 Canoe FM Monday nights from 9 – 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, and is also carried on the internet at www.canoefm.com .
Each week, I usually choose a specific theme or logical song progression – for instance, last week’s show was songs with a really heavy, prominent bass line, and this week’s show features some of the best vocalists of Rock, Pop, R&B and Soul from the past 60 years.
So what does this mean to you??
Well, what I’m looking for is to do a show of your favourite songs – what I request is the song title, the artists, your first name, city, province/state. Guidelines for your song – it must be a good song, have no foul words in the lyrics, be preferably 5 minutes long or less, available on iTunes, and oh yeah, it must be a good song. I can get away with playing just about any music genre, but please no Bird Dance, Macarena or Kenny G requests!
You can send me your song request by either leaving a comment at the end of this post, or send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Let me know in one sentence as to why this is your favourite song if it has any special significance to you etc. – sell it!
The deadline for song requests will be October 26, and the show will air on Monday October 29. And if I get enough requests, there can always be a second show on the following Monday.
Okay, so there you have it. I suggest you at least check out the radio station’s website – it has live streaming, and a very diverse show schedule. 1 a.m. to 5 p.m. is a mix of songs from the 40s to the present, and there’s approx. 20 – 30 DJs doing different shows up until 1 a.m. most every night.
Okay – let’s crank out some good tunes!
