Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

Canadian College Radio Charts

Since I am a college radio DJ the charts are something that interests me. Basically up here there are two different charts. One is compiled by Chart Magazine. The other is compiled by the the National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA) and is part of their effort called Earshot, which has it's own website (an excellent web zine really) and also is in the print edition of Exclaim Magazine.

The charts vary a bit and are timed differently but interesting to see the differences. By the way sorry for the formatting differences but I'm just cutting and pasting here.

Anyways here is the top ten from Chart Magazine for this week, ending March 31. To view the whole chart you can go here.
