Episode 451 – Kicking Mainstream Radio In The Nards – CKIC- FM

Once upon a time in our fair city, a great radio station called CKIC-FM came on the airwaves to add college radio to our city, competing against the university stations UMFM from the University of Manitoba and CKUW from the University of Winnipeg. The amount of great music we all got exposed to pushed indie music hard. Oh yeah, and that guy Robert did, too. We all have our own Robert. But more on him on a later episode.

Here are the tracks we played this week:

The Original Mark – The Details from The Original Mark EP

Self Defense – Quinzy from Self Defense

Radio – Amy Thiessen

Do It Scared – Why from the album The Leap

Things That I Learned When I Worked At The Hospital – Nicole Byblow from the

album Nicole Byblow Plays All The White Keys

Today It’s Over – Leaderhouse from Leaderhouse

Sometime Around Midnight - The Airborne Toxic Event from the The Airborne Toxic Event

Intentions – Fifteen from Swain’s First Bike Ride

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
