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.

The Hour's Disc Drop

I've been a big fan of CBC's The Hour since it started. For those of you who don't know, ie. not in Canada, it's a nightly current events show hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos.

Last week on the show he did an excellent interview with Ani DiFranco but before he mentioned the recent closing up here in Canada of Music World and the sad decline of the record store, especially as a social place to discuss music. So he came up with Operation Disc Drop. Basic idea is to make up a mix CD. Leave a track listing. Label it as part of The Hour's Disc Drop, with the URL and hope someone enjoys it.

I'm going to make one and I'll post the results here when I get to it the next few days.

For full details on Operation Disc Drop go here.
