I know the photo is not really linked to this particular entry but I mentioned at the start of Horses Spilled Milk that I went to Perth, Ontario on Saturday for 2 lion dance performances. Check the 2009 Summer page for the short entry. I had to sub in for co-host for the beginning of the show because he was running late. I was basically a lifesaver for Horses Spilled Milk and Kristal’s Method.
Halfway through Horses Spilled Milk, there was a classic 80s song played and the hint; The Breakfast Club, directed by the late John Hughes.
Afterwards, I unexpectedly decided to guest host Kristal’s Method because Kristal wasn’t around. I had to scramble and figure out what songs to play. I had help from Armen of Thematics at CKCU-FM at the first host break. This time, I totally played 100% Canadian independent music.
Note: Audio for both shows are no longer available to listen.
Here’s the playlist for guest hosting Kristal’s Method:

Various Blog Posting – What I Said About Who Helped Out on “Emergency Street” by Hilotrons? From this link on CBC Radio 3, Amanda Putz wrote down, “Luke Martin, Sacha Gabriel, Jim Bryson, Sarah Hallman, J.J. Hardill, Janice Hall, Miche Jette, Gianna Lalonde, Cameron Terrill, & Lisa Poushinsky.” I only said Jim Bryson and Sarah Hallman on-air and I couldn’t remember what she wrote after I played Emergency Street but I searched on Google to finding it later on.

Again, I like to thank Erica and Corey of Horses Spilled Milk and Kristal for being supportive and loving music. What a way to go almost two for two on radio.
