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.

Phog Phest This Saturday

Back a few months ago, CBC Radio 3 ran a contest to name the best live venue in Canada. They started with a hundred nominated venues. They then went to fifty, then twenty and finally ten before naming the winner via an online vote. As most people know by know the winner was Windsor's own, Phog Lounge.

As winner they got a concert from Radio 3. Now with Phog having a very small capacity they've turned it into an outdoor festival, this upcoming Saturday. CBC has brought Holy Fuck, Arkells and Green Go and Phog has brought the best bands from Southern Ontario as well as some friends of the bar from out of town.

WAMM (Windsor Arts & Music Monthly) have brought forth the first schedule for the celebratory show this Saturday. All times are subject to change.
