something to listen to...

so there is FINALLY a new radio station to listen to in vancouver (an online live anywhere if you want) - it's The Peak 100.5 and it's what i've been waiting for. when Z changed over to Crave, i had hopes that it was going to be different...but it's exactly the same. and the Fox is too hard for me. 101 is too old for me. so when tim came home and said, "hey - there's a new station and it's so great!" i was pretty pumped.

and so far it hasn't let me down. i've heard sarah harmer, tom petty, coldplay, jason mraz, arcade fire, death cab for cutie, plus lots of new and obscure stuff that they find and talk about, wanting you to call in and tell them what you think. almost nothing that there is on Crave which is great. some days, it's like i'm listening to a playlist from my ipod.

i called in the other day to find out the name of the band playing the song at that moment because it was fantastic. i sent them an email to let them know what a great station it is. we need to support a new station so that it doesn't go anywhere. we can't lose it! so check it out...

"..in the car". that sentence ended so mysteriously. I guess that's why I should 'preview' my comments before I 'publish' them.

"World Class Rock", the subtitle of this radio station, is also the subtitle of my favorite station in Seattle, 103.7 The Mountain. And curiously, their names are strikingly similar as well. I will have to give The Peak a listen, because as a general rule, I almost never listen to the radio in Canada. If it's as good as The Mountain, it will definitely be a welcome change.
