Great White North? You're in Canada, eh? Thanks so much!


liked the big yellow taxi version by tierany sutton good remake . dark star hadn't heard in a long time . you just out did yourself on the music and thinking about joni mitchel who was and still is one of my favorites of female singer songwriters.


great show forest. janis ian i loved the song society's child. what a great song for the 60's for that time. i know we see lots of mixed marriages now a days but back then it was so tabboo. now it's like nothing and it' s normal unless you live in the south which still see's that as tabboo yet. lots of great tunes you played on this show. loved it! we are over the hump and close to the weekend. have a good one and keep those great hits coming

Many thanks MTM! Always enjoy hearing from you here!



I have a brand new album out titled "Carnival Of Fools" that I would love to get to you.

Do you accept digital files (mp3, WAV etc) transmitted to you for airplay etc? If so please send me the email address
that you would like me to send the album to via WeTransfer.

The album has been described by website as : ~

Phil Matthews is faithful to a particular thread of folk pop throughout the whole album. Not a bad thing – it makes for a good listen as a whole piece, or to dip into for individual tracks.
This is the music of the drowsy slumber at the end of a day of imagined sunshine over a provincial village green. It is, as the cover suggests, the delight and half-remembered excitement of bunting strung prettily and the canvas tents hiding the delights of the fête. It is a melodic re-imagining of a by-gone age, the rose-tinted sound of perfectly pleasant pop bringing a welcome acoustic folk direction to the many psych-infusions around.

Too funny: The "Clockwork Orange Title Theme" is also my ringtone. Luckily, I knew what you were doing, so did not pick up. Ridin' along on the Bloo Bus, w/ the Blue Bus Cat, a blue beret, and some Blue Nun. "Already Gone" was the perfect opener, and it was also great to hear Wendy Carlos, Isaak, Stones, all that Joni, T. Rex, and the rest. Mahalo, and Ride... On... Baby! And when your cleanse is over... eat a peach! 🍑 :)

The Blue Bus

Johnny me boy, you know we have a thing for all things bluuuuuuuue! You're tugging at our heartstrings again. We may have to move you to fair or is that fare collector? Mahalo my man and ride on! Down 21.4 pounds today and peaches coming in less than two weeks now brah! 🍑
