• Word is Bond Rap Radio Live (Recorded at Hoop Fest)

    I had the opportunity to DJ at Hoop Fest last month in Victoria Park. It was a lot of fun to be providing music while the 3×3 basketball tournament was in session. Once the games were done, we kept the party rocking with a freestyle session and some live performances. It was a lot of […]

  • My Pick for Juno Rap Single of the Year

    The Juno Awards are coming up and instead of complaining about the list of nominees this year, I thought I would go through the categories that interest me in detail and make my own decisions about each list. I’ve already covered the Children’s Album of the Year and Rap Album of the Year categories. Now, […]

  • My Pick for Juno Rap Album of the Year

    At first glance, I was not impressed with the nominees for this year’s Juno Awards. But I thought I would do something different this year.

  • My Pick for the 2023 Juno Children’s Album

    The nominees for The 52nd Annual JUNO Awards are out and I thought I would do something different this year.

  • Word is Bond Rap Radio – Tidal Picks of 2022

    Last week, I did a 2 hour show featuring some of my favourite tracks from last year. Those were submissions to the show or tracks that I actually downloaded and stored on a hard drive. However, last year, I also started streaming music. I tried Apple and Beatsource before finally landing on Tidal. It is […]

  • Captivated by Sound – The Listeners

    The Listeners by Jordan Tannahill As you can see, old habits die hard. I planned to free up some time by not writing lengthy posts about every book I read, but I still did that with the last book and was planning to do it with this one too. The problem is, I have a […]

  • Learn to Podcast from the Pros at NPR

    NPR’s Podcast Start Up Guide: Create, Launch, and Grow a Podcast on Any Budget by Glen Weldon I had no reason to pick this book up. I’ve been podcasting my radio show for for over ten years now. But I wanted to see what advice the experts at NPR had and whether or not I […]

  • This Used To Be My Playground . . . Watch Out For Zombies

    I came across an abandoned baseball diamond while trying to find a place to toboggan and I can honestly say, I’ve never seen anything like this before. It felt like I was in a post-apocalyptic zombie film. There are tall trees where the playing field would have been. Someone has preserved a sideline bench though. […]

  • Now is the Time, to Hit That Target!
