Interview with Slates and loads of local music

10:00am - 12:00pm

Happy Hello Hello Hello!

This week our station is being audited by SOCAN. As a radiostation in Canada we need to meet certain retirements. One of the biggest ones is playing certain percentage of Canadian content on air. When they pick my show for the audit I always try to play as much as possible local and Canadian bands to score ace on this audit! And it’s awesome to celebrate local talent anyways!

In the second half of the show I interviewed James of an awesome Edmonton band called Slates. The band is playing in Vancouver this weekend, check them out because they rule!
