Today, we’re taking over KOOP’s afternoon airwaves to bring you an incredible 2.5 hours of independent Canadian music—beginning at 4:30 PM—and we’re not stopping until the FCC says KVRX has to take over!

We’ve spent the past week training our ears, stretching our muscles, and carbo-loading for this marathon musical adventure and we’re pretty sure you’re going to be pleased with the results.

We’re also giving away tickets to see Montreal rockers Ought when they play at Sidewinder next week!

We’ve reached new heights of playlist performance. In addition to the latest from Ought, we’ve got a slew of brand new and yet-to-be-released tunes by artists like Arkells, The Awkward Stage, Balacade, Bass Lions, Bear Mountain, Black Pistol Fire, Blackpaw Society, Chow Chow, Chris Kelly, David Vertesi, Don Vail, The Dress Whites, FemBots, The Got to Get Got, Graft, Grand Theft Bus, Grimes, Harlan Pepper, Harrow Fair, Hey Rosetta, Hooded Fang, The I Spies, July Talk, Living Hour, Minotaurs, Mulligrub, No Liars, Rival Boys, Roxanne Potvin, The Royal Foundry, RV Farms, The Strumbellas, Sulfur City, Terence Jack, and Wild Rivers. Whoa! Plus, we’ll continue with our countdown of the Top 100 Neil Young songs of all time; this week, with a tune from Neil’s time in Buffalo Springfield.

You might be thinking, 150 minutes of listening seems pretty intense. Relax—we’ve done all the hard work for you. So, get 67% more music, at no extra cost—just turn your radio dial to 91.7 FM or point your electronic gizmo to KOOP.org at 4:30 PM Central and join Justin the Canuck for the latest and greatest music from north of the border.
