Here we are once again.  Jonny Vancouver, Zen Render, and Duncan Shields once again bring you the new, the old, the weird, and the wonderful. We also bring you music in between the bouts of silliness.

Get some headphones on if you’re at work, or make the sure the kids are outta the room, or you’re going to spend half of Xmas dinner explaining where little Timmy learned the f-word, (and why he says it with a Jonny Vancouver Irish accent).

You can download or link the 80-something minute show here, or use the various nefarious links and podcast downloaders and I don’t know what you kids use these days with your tartanglers and hornswagglers made by the iPoms or whatever they are.

And get off my lawn.

Summer 09, and we’ve got that slightly hung-over vibe.  Funny.  Little punchy.  Tired, but still diggin’ the tunes.  Your host lineup this week is Ducan, Zen, and then Jonny in each set of three.  Enjoy (but keep the kids from learning the colourful language).

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.
