The Nocturntable : My Definition

The Nocturntable : Defined
"For Madmen Only!!!"

While on the surface The Nocturntable seems like a multifaceted showcase of awesomeness, the fact is that the tracks are thoughtfully curated and sequenced with an expertise and finesse that is rarely duplicated in campus/community radio programming. 

A seat-of-your-pants flight pattern may be DJedi Christine’s M.O., but don’t be lulled into thinking these flawless transitions and compelling tempo surges are pure happenstance. 20 years of pushing plastic has resulted in a strange synergy of music and memory as The Nocturntable’s resident Timepilot delves into ancient treasure troves and polishes emergent diamonds-in-the-rough with equal enthusiasm. 

Raised by a Heavy Metal Mother and an Afrobeat Father, The Nocturntable unlocks the psychedelic lounge party of your dreams. Peter Sellars and Jimi Hendrix exchange “pleasantries,” while the scintillating sounds of Los Orientales de Paramonga flow through the speakers hidden inside your hanging egg chair. Lava lamps gloop and glow, and golden hash dust rains from the ceiling, as Hunter S. Thompson executes a languid backstroke through a shag carpet of the bluest azure. 

Tune in, turn on and pass through the soundproofed door that reads “For Madmen Only!” The Nocturntable loves homegrown! There is nothing better than playing host to a bevy of local musical acts who promise to hit the sonic sweet spot and shake you to your very bones! Shooting Guns, Blonde Elvis, Woodhawk, Tetrix, Nosis, Chron Goblin, No More Moments, Electric Revival, Monolith AB and many more have sent their good vibrations blasting into outer space on The Nocturntable, whilst performing their original creations in CJSW’s magnificent live performance studios. 

Working closely with CJSW’s Music Director and Production crew, The Nocturntable aims to feature one live performance per month. Of course, this could include having band members drop by to say “High!” and spin some of their fav LPs while providing insights on their industry. As a freelance writer, I am constantly interviewing artists and bands for different publications and, naturally, these experiences trickle into my programming. Granting increased exposure to talents from Calgary, Alberta, and Canada is a highlight of The Nocturntable’s mandate, as is the ongoing promotion of local venues, galleries, businesses, shows and festivals. 

I sincerely hope that CJSW’s listeners enjoy the showtime atmosphere created by The Nocturntable, and that they will benefit from hearing new and different acts, and learning about the record labels that support those artists. 

In the words of one Chef Wayne, my show resembles the classic “frog in the pot of water experiment,” in that I increase the temperature so incrementally that the subject does not realize they have gone from listening to Ravi Shankar to Red Fang in forty moves, or less. Thus, the audience is primed, ready, and has been brought to a rolling boil by the time the next programmer arrives! 

In endless rotation since the late-‘90s; The Nocturntable will introduce you to that fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morning. 

Thanks, eh!
Christine





Yule Log of Happiness 2016

Dear 2016,
As much as you sucked we can all agree that having something good to look forward to has always been a valid reason to get out of bed and bang your fucking head.
Tensions mounted as international talents invaded our inner city strongholds. Bands like Baroness, The Sword, Ghost B.C., Trivium, Black Tusk and Orchid swept through town; whiplashing necks and whetting appetites for regional delicacies such as those provided by close-to-homegrown acts Witchstone, The Weir, Shooting Guns, Chron Goblin, Nosis and Black Mastiff. Sliding into the pyroclastic flow of Sled Island, familiars such as Calgary’s Numenorean and Chieftain held their own against a tsunami of vitriolic vibes pushed forth by a moist Deafheaven and thorny SubRosa.
Leaning towards dusky psych-rock horizon energizing new releases from the flute-proponents Witchcraft and Blood Ceremony, and upstanding burners like Black Thunder, Dead Ranch and Red Fang reinvigorated the spirit and made crosstown traffic more bearable. Big Business, The Lennon Claypool Delirium, Mike + The Melvins and Boris poured on the material filling devices and synapses with visions of heavy rock candy and the ability to command the elements.
A messy and perilous year all told, 2016 put hardcore pundits up front and center stage as musicians and fans intermingled within an antithetical atmosphere of increasing acceptance and fractious debate. The one thing we could all agree upon? Black Sabbath. The End came to The Saddledome early in 2016, but sadly the stadium survived the children of the grave unscathed. Not so for our neighbours to the north. It may have been Calgary’s official Year of Music, but that doesn’t mean local locos weren’t going to road-trip it up to Edmonton, or other Albertan destinations, to partake of some heavy metal manna. This was very much the case, when the elder statesmen in Iron Maiden wrecked Rexall Place with their Book of Souls performance back in April. I don’t know if anyone’s caught the throbbing LED heart Bruce Dickinson wrenched from that giant animatronic Eddie puppet, but, damn, that’s one Helluva souvenir.
Sincerely, 
Christine Leonard.
