Show 27, a randomness show.  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Group and join the 265 other folks who have pretty much given up on hearing anything decent on their local radio stations, and end up listening to 90 minutes of three guys in a basement somewhere on the West Coast of Canada.

While we try to keep things in context, and are not trying to offend anyone intentionally, some of us (no names mentioned) really enjoy a good swear-up, so make sure  the kids are in the other room, or you’ve got your headphones on, or something.

The Remix Show.

Sometimes the remix is better than the original, sometimes it’s so different it’s hard to remember what the original even WAS.  Sometimes, we talk a lot, and sometimes we just giggle like idiots.

Unknown Origins was brought to you this month by Duncan Shields, Jonny Vancouver, Zen Render, and the letter “fna!”  For fun, I found some anagrams online for “Unknown Origins” and while “Skiing On Own Run” seemed to fit us nicely, here’s 999 more.

Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to another episode of Unknown Origins.  Our quadro-centennial (or does that mean four-hundredth?) episode launching mid-March of 2009, and it’s another show of randomness (or at least, if there is a pattern, we don’t see it… yet).  Approximately 90minutes of music and talking and noise and talking and utterly unfounded opinions and just what the heck kinda ruckus are those kids up to any way?


Your hosts for this show are Jonny Vancouver, Duncan Shields, and Zen Render.  Find us on Facebook, and join the group there for announcements of upcoming shows.

Earmuffs for the kids, or headphones for you, as I think Jonny Vancouver made it almost 45 seconds this time before dropping an f-bomb.

Background music was by Hauschka off of his album “Ferndorf”.

Wordemup wordemup wordemup.  Once again, your three intrepid spaniels hosts got together and talked for four hours, and occasionally played music so there was continuous noise while we drank coffee and ate hummus (om nom nom nom).  I think the swearing started somewhere around the 40 second mark (which may be a new record for Jonny Vancouver), so best to put some headphones on, or send the kids out of the room for the next 90 minutes or so.  Our focus for this show?  Covers.   The good, the bad, and the Yelling Bill Cosby.
