Moondog's Ballroom on CIUT 89.5fm moves to a new timespot!

Howdy All;
Starting this Tuesday Moondog's Ballroom on CIUT 89.5fm will be moving to a new timespot from it's current one Mondays @ 6 - 7pm to Tuesdays 5 - 6pm.
It's not a major move but it's a good one. This will put me in a block of related shows which will now include;
5pm - Moondog's Ballroom (that's me!)
6pm - Real Cool Time (w/ Rocky & Deena, playing Garage & Punk)
7pm - Dementia 13 (w/Christian Hamilton, playing 60's Psyche & Prog)
8pm - Vinyl from the Crypt (w/ The Cryptkeeper Ken Stower, playing assorted stuff from the 40's to the 80's)

By contrast Mondays are more spoken word heavy so this should be a better fit. Since "Real Cool Time" and "Dementia 13" play a lot of 60's garage I will probably focus more on Rockabilly, Blues, Doo Wop, Honky Tonk, Jump Blues and Western Swing. Not exclusively of course, I will still play lots of newer local stuff and will have guests and ticket giveaways as well.

Speaking of guests that brings us to part two of our schedule changes; the tentative plans for the Monday 6pm spot is to call it "Live at CIUT" and it will, logically enough, focus on live performances done at CIUT. We already have live bands down virtually every weekday but we have lacked a spot to really focus them until now. This new hour will give us the chance to record more, and have the bands do more songs as well as an interview. I will be involved in this as well, although not every week. In the past few months I have already done live sets with Split Lip Rayfield, The Fruit Bats, Harp Dog Brown and this Monday I will have Luau or Die and The Blue Demons and I am looking forward to getting more bands down in the future.

The following show on Mondays & 7pm, "Acoustic Workshop" also features many live sets so that's a bonus. CIUT will be the only radio station in Toronto presenting regular live sets from local and international artists, like our own Peel Sessions, so stay tuned.

We kick things off this Monday with the Blue Demons playing live to air @ 6pm and Luau or Die will also be in recording earlier in advance of the 5th Annual Great Lakes Surf Battle happening next weekend!

Later Y'all!
