If you've ended up here, you're in for a treat, as, in the end, we've got another musical theme episode for you. The theme: well, songs that feature great parts at the beginning or end and that leave us wanting more. Hopefully you'll find our show a hoot from end to end... enjoy!

Pictured above: What, can't you read? It's the word coda.

The Beatles - I Want You (She's So Heavy)

The Hollies - Hey Carrie-Anne
Natalie Imbruglia - Torn

Portishead - We Carry On
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Feist - Lonely Lonely

Derek and the Dominos - Layla

Sigur Ros - Festival


Nicki Minaj's Starships, the Gay Anthem du jour.

Good evening Alyssa and Tyler:

Quite sure that no other radio station in the world would have been able to tie all those songs together under one theme. I played a few of them over for a second listen!

And yes, the steel guitar in "Torn" sounds like a cross between a cat in heat and a fire engine on the way to douse that same cat.

As per street vendors competing against regular restaurants, I am hopeful that adequate market research was carried out in order to identify potential sites for these new vendors, and in so doing minimize the impact on existing establishments. The number of licenses issued should also be tightly controlled. With any luck it will be a success in Montreal.

Really enjoy the background sounds during ASR; birds twittering, car brakes screeching, sirens, yodelling. The only thing missing so far has been gun shots - thankfully!

Please continue with the musical themes. The input from all your friends this past episode really
led to a great show!

Go Spain Go!

Should you decide to do an episode focussing on songs that include whistling please consider the following:

"The Stranger" by Billy Joel (great way to begin a song)
"Winds of Change" by the Scorpions (hauntingly beautiful)
"Young Folks" by Peter, Bjorn and John (catchy)

but favourite has always been "Golden Years" by David Bowie. (Great way to finish a song.)

Brutus (aka. whistling junkie)
