CIVL station manager Aaron Levy hosts Cascade Check Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. where he talks entirely about UFV athletics with players, coaches and media guru David Kent.
CR Avery – “For Gangsters of the Highway”
CR Avery has toured since before some freshman were born, so when he laments slowly, “We’re Just a couple of kids shootin’ hoops ‘neath the moon, but there ain’t no Nike endorsement baby, for this game winnin’ goal, there ain’t no money in Rock n Roll,” we’re wise to take heed.
Rouge – “Modern Lovers I”
Like David Bowie and YYY’s, Rouge documents the evolution of relationships and attraction with poise and power. At a sweaty dance club, the girl you’re eyeing and her boyfriend both like what they see, noticing you noticing them. Are you a boy? Girl? Either way, Rouge has you seeing red.
B.A. Johnston – “Retro Hell”
Canada’s most well-traveled road warrior details a thankless job. “Too old to have a job with ‘boy’ in the title, so ‘bus boy’s what I am, God kill me; bus boy on retro night. Don’t remember when Sublime became retro-o-o-o, and then it hits me: I am so old.”
The Rolling Stones – “Dead Flowers”
There’s nothing like Keith Richards’ blues guitar and Jagger’s salty sweet howls of time-weathered wisdom. Townes Van Zandt helped re-popularize this Sticky Fingers classic in The Big Lebowski with his acoustic version, but there’s nothing like the original. Mick’s Little Susie will always think she’s the queen of the underground.
