Now We're Really On.


The first seven shows are now archived and ready to download in .aif and .mp3 format from the links to your right--->

Soon there'll be more content in the form of reviews, interviews, exclusive tracks... but for now... a bit of background for the as yet uninformed.

The current show has its beginning back in 1999 when I started doing a weekly experimental music radio show on CHSR-FM 97.9 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. I had been involved with the radio station during the late 80s and early 90s but hadn't done anything until this new show which was, at first called The "Y2K-Mart." After the big bad Millennium passed I changed the show's name to perMUTATIONS "from vegetative silence to carnivorous noise" and continued until the end of Summer last year.

I like the idea of adapting the show to it's current format, one hour long... commentary-free mixes... accessible to anyone who wants to play/listen to it either on air or at home. It seemed to fit better with my other jobbies (job+hobbies) which include managing a record store and writing reviews for Exclaim! magazine (you'll find links to both on the right as well). This way I can comment on the music in a variety of different ways from play to review to interview to overview all the way to sales... ideally.

So... thanks to all the labels and artists who supported the show from its beginnings to the present... hopefully you'll continue and be joined by your peers... but for now...

On with the shows.
