Cayoz hails from Oceanside, California and is not be confused with the Canadian emcee K-os, although both rappers pronounce their name “Chaos.”
If you are a regular listener of this show, you will have heard this man before. He makes great songs and even has a few Canadian connections. It was nice to finally kick it with him and talk about music and life.

This is Episode 78 of Know Your History and features music by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5, an interview with the first hip-hop promoter (it isn’t who you think) and a song by Akala that gets us thinking about how far back this genre of music actually goes.
You can stream or download the clean or explicit version of the show below for free.
Just across the border of Sarnia, Ontario is the small community of Port Gratiot. I decided to explore the nature preserve and walking trail because I like exploring new places to run and thought doing so in a different country would be a nice change of pace.
The trail had regular distance markings along it, which was really nice.
And it boarded several small ponds. There were also playground structures and open fields for children to enjoy.
Kettlewell Pond is a great place to enjoy nature. It allows for fishing, kayaking, and canoeing and is easily accessible via the paved trail.
There are several docks around the perimeter of the pond as well.
This run was beautiful but the trail itself is a little short. It continues alongside a street a little further back but does not go into the woods as I would have hoped. Instead, that area is fenced off for the nature reserve.

Visit the photographic tour archive to look at dozens and dozens of posts just like this one. I hope to see you out on the trails this summer.
I know someone who called our college radio station, “Radio Roulette – you never know what you are going to get.” It’s an apt description of what we do at Radio Western.
Last week, I had a listener text in to the station who had been listening to the station for 24 hours straight. She told me that she enjoyed the first part of the show but had to turn the station off when the music got too explicit for her (both in message and language content)
I still feel bad about chasing away a listener. I like to play positive hip-hop but every now and then I play some offensive stuff. It’s the nature of the genre.
Did I go too far this week? Was it too much? What do you think?

The start of the podcast today isn’t the start of the show. It starts at 3:55. I normally edit this out of the podcast version. Oops, sorry!
I got my start on radio ten years ago with Daddy J on a show called DOPEfm. The show is still going strong Saturday nights in Hamilton, ON, Canada on 93.3 CFMU.
Daddy J paid the Forest City a special visit last week and it was great to have him co-host the show with me.
If you missed it, press play and enjoy the podcast. And make sure you share it on social media. We appreciate the support.

I’ve gotten a little bit behind on the podcasting of the radio show, and for that I apologize.
I liked the idea of podcasting the show as quickly as possible after the live show. I had been trying to get the new shows posted by Wednesday of each week but that hasn’t been working so well. It’s hard to stay on top of everything (life, family, work, school, exercise, etc) and be as timely as I wanted to be with the posting.
So, I think I will be going back to my old schedule. I plan to release the podcasts on Monday mornings, one week after the original show has aired. Today’s show is Part 2 from the extended show I did two weeks ago and it features an interview with Sankdafied and a live in-studio performance from Traffimatics.
Press play and enjoy!

Kevin Probably Saves the World is the kind of television show that we really need more of.
It’s a unique hour-long drama that is fully of charm and humour. It has elements of fantasy and spirituality in every episode that could be a little off-putting to some people. Maybe that is the reason we won’t be getting a second season of it. However, if you get a chance to see the first (and now only) season of it, I think you will fall in love with it like I did.
It starts out with Kevin, being extremely down on his luck. After a suicide attempt, he moves back to his hometown and in with his widowed twin sister. There he meets a person that no one else can see. She claims that Kevin is one of thirty-six righteous beings and he has a duty to find the others and save the world. She is there to protect him and make sure he can complete his mission.
The interesting thing about the show is that his guardian angel had to leave heaven to help him in this mission and she can never return. As Kevin becomes a more angelic person, she starts to become more human.
Upon learning of this series, I immediately drew connections to Joan of Arcadia. Jason Ritter, who plays Kevin, was also in that series. It was about a teenage girl who was regularly visited by God and given special missions to complete. Each mission had huge impacts for both Joan and the people her deeds touched. The same thing happens with this series. And Kevin is finding redemption and becoming a better person.
The final episode actually brought tears to me eyes. I really hope this series gets a longer run than Joan of Arcadia, which only lasted two seasons. The show is amazing and I probably haven’t done it justice in this post.
I was really looking forward to a second season of Kevin Saves the World (Probably). Unfortunately, the show has not been picked up and we are left with only the first outing of a series that should have continued for a few more years. Maybe it is my fault for not posting about this sooner. If you love something, you need to support it and let people know. This is the day and age we live in. Maybe we could have saved Kevin. Maybe he could have saved television. Maybe.
Sareem Poems has been putting it down for 20 years. From his group, LA Symphony, to his work with various producers, to his solo tracks, he has been putting in work for a long time now.
It was a honour being able to chat with him this week live on the radio. We have world premiere joints from his forthcoming album “Mind Over Matter” produced entirely by Ess Be. And we have a great discussion about hip-hop, youth outreach work, and much more.
Press play, download it and take it with you, and bump this loud. Enjoy!

Tuesdays from 10:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight (new day and time)
I love finding new places to run. I often take my camera along with me and stop every few minutes to snap a picture. This way I can present you with a photographic story that captures the scenery of my run. This page is a table of contents for these Photographic Tours. Hopefully, you will discover a new trail to explore.
