CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy is excited about the new project just announced by CIVL, and all of the great opportunities for students and other volunteers to participate in studio recordings at the station! More info at www.civl.ca
54-40 – “Lies To Me”
An acoustic recording with “new” guitarist Dave Genn, formerly of the Matthew Good Band (who didn’t appear on the original recording of this classic) came out of the band’s April visit to the CIVL studio right here at UFV’s Abbotsford campus, and boy does it ever sound the best.
The Balconies – “Kill Count”
In listening to a four-month-old rerun on CIVL this month, I heard this song. Funny thing is it was Neon Brown’s 10th anniversary episode, and 10 years ago the song was performed live in the studio when I was a Guelph, Ontarion at CFRU 93.3 FM.
The Mohawk Lodge – “Heart of Lovers”
The first song ever performed live in the studio on said radio station mentioned above during my tenure on the 1s and 2s, and it’s actually a band from right here in the Lower Mainland, from a tour they did out east with another VanCity band called Octoberman back in 2007.
Bif Naked – “Moment of Weakness”
Bif didn’t play live in the CIVL studio back when she stopped into the C building space a few years back on a speaking tour after being awarded an honorary degree at UFV convocation, though I did catch her in Chilliwack separately with TARL at the excellent Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
