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.

Ron Leary

Tomorrow on Sweet Static, the radio edition hopefully I'll be interviewing Ron Leary. A local singer/songwriter that is about to release his first full length album, theroadinbetween, this weekend.

Ron has always been a good friend of the show, including being a co-host in the previous incarnation of Tupelo Blue Whiskey. He also hosts his own show, Open Mic, on CJAM Thursday nights from 7-8 pm.

Hopefully the CD will be ready. Earlier this week he sent out an email with this horror story...

"Yesterday, 1000 of Ron Leary's brand new cd, theroadinbetween, is being loaded into a truck to be shipped to Windsor Ontario. All 1000 of them fall off the truck and smash to the ground into a million pieces. Today the process of reprinting 1000 more cds began. They are scheduled to be completed late Friday afternoon. At that point they are to be shipped Purolator to Windsor from Montreal. Chances of them actually being here for the shows on Saturday - 50/50. Ron's response to all this, 'unfucking belieavable!'"

Cross your fingers for him.

If you are in Windsor/Detroit this Saturday you can see him twice, in his own words again "featuring a 5-piece band made up of some of the finest roots players in the city: Kenneth MacLeod, Scott Hughes, Josh Zalev, Matt Rideout & special guest Kelly Hoppe."

Saturday May 13th
Dr. Disc @ 3pm - all ages (instore)
Sky Lounge @ 10pm - $3 cover

If you aren't in the area you can download the song "Turn" from the new album here.

His Myspace page also has 3 more songs from the new album to stream.

Last but not least you can download these two older songs from his EP Lapse.

"Everyday I Think Of You" aka what I always called the hit single.
"Hey, Hey!"
