  • Juke In The Back

    Matt The Cat presents the soul that came before rock n’ roll: 1950s rhythm and blues. Each week, this under­rat­ed and rol­lick­ing music plays on that old Rock­o­la Juke­box in the back.

    If you want­ed to hear rhythm & blues dur­ing the 1950s, you couldn’t get it from the juke box in the front. No, no! In order to hear that glo­ri­ous, down and dirty R&B, you had to go to the low-lit, spit-shined Juke In The Back.” These songs are the build­ing blocks of rock n’ roll. These are the records that inspired Elvis and sin­gle-hand­ed­ly led to the rock n’ roll explo­sion of the mid-1950s.

  • Latin Waves

    Latin Waves was born almost 10 yrs ago when Sylvia Richardson’s pas­sion for social change hit the radio air waves. The show was start­ed as a resource to edu­cate the pub­lic about the extra­or­di­nary changes and social move­ments that are hap­pen­ing in Latin Amer­i­ca, there is a lit­er­al black­out in the Cana­di­an main stream media around these his­toric changes. Short­ly after the show start­ed Stu­art Richard­son joined as co-pro­duc­er chan­nelling his pas­sion into jour­nal­ism and research, with such an over­whelm­ing amount of crit­i­cal news not being cov­ered prop­er­ly in the main stream media Latin Waves decid­ed to open its spectrum.

    Our orig­i­nal man­date to cov­er Latin Amer­i­ca still stands but we have expand­ed our cov­er­age into local/​national and inter­na­tion­al issues mak­ing those crit­i­cal polit­i­cal con­nec­tions, we bring our lis­ten­ers in-depth cov­er­age of issues with a focus on the his­to­ry of an issue and what that his­to­ry means for us today and most impor­tant­ly what we can do to move soci­ety for­ward in a healthy way.

    In short our show is focused on build­ing com­mu­ni­ty across bor­ders, pos­i­tive social change has only come through com­mu­ni­ties of inter­est work­ing together.
