Free CDs (for the price of postage)

I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago in a Spine Radio episode, but Brobdingnagian Records is giving away albums for the measly cost of packing material and postage. I can't think of a much better deal.

When they're gone, they're gone, so stock up!

ANOTHER new radio station?

Driving around today, I noticed a van beside me in traffic with 88.9 something something on the side. Unfortunately, this is another fucking classic rock station.

Yes, exactly. That is exactly what Halifax needs. We have a huge shortage of classic rock stations in this city and I, for one, am a huge proponent of being able to fill my car radio presets with nothing but stations with cheesy-ass DJs playing the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith 24/7. Please, can we get 4 more classic rock stations? That's all I need. I don't get to hear Stairway to Heaven enough times in a day.


Now, this "new" station is just an FM re-broadcast of the AM station 960 CHNS (or vice-versa, depending on how you look at it). Oldies 96 is apparently no more; not that I care. As much as I dislike Z103, at least they're trying to give us something that we don't yet have.

Camping in Boston

Plans are starting to come together for our road trip to Boston. We've been researching campsites so we can travel on-the-cheap, and I think we've settled on Wompatuck State Park. It's about 30 minutes south of Boston, so we should be able to drive to the nearest subway station and then hit downtown.

So far, I think Jeannine and Tanya are just going to shop. We're going to be travelling with wifi-enabled laptops and a GPS (probably) so we should be able to update blogs, podcasts, photos, etc. from the road.

What's fun to do in Boston? Any requests for interviews or photos?
