With your host, ‘Doctor’ MacDonald. And hopefully with some special guests… but we’ll see what happens, this is a work in progress and is after all a rather ad hoc attempt. It’s off & on; you might catch some tunes, by chance.

We are SOCAN licensed.

Here’s the chatbox.

  • The_Doctor : Fugazi - Repeater
  • The_Doctor : I really like that Youngbloods album... but this Electric Prunes is just about my favourite album, at this moment in time. I had too much to dream...
  • The_Doctor : Sorry, Liam. We are going with the Real McKenzies.
  • The_Doctor : Working on some hacker shit throughout the day but taking a spin into P. Hawkesbury after supper to replenish some stock. Give us a shout if you happen by! I'll write you back if I can and if we happen to be here together at the same time, we can even try a chat!
  • Doctor : For today, we have a few albums in rotation. Going with a 60's vibe but we may include some others. We have 2 albums from 1967; one by the Electric Prunes and the other by the Ugly Ducklings. Also in the mix is the Youngblood's 1969 album, Elephant Mountain
