Fringe Review: I Think I’m Dead

I have known Al Lafrance for many years. We originally met when he worked at CJLO, and hosted the radio show Edge of the City right after Ears Wide Shut with myself and Joshua Nemeroff. I have followed Al’s career because he has always been funny and strange and open, both in mind and in practice, and is a generally entertaining person to be around. I have always thought highly of him, but after seeing I Think I’m Dead, I think Al Lafrance might actually be brilliant.

CJLO Begins Metal March

It's March, and here at CJLO that can only mean one thing... it's Metal March.

What is Metal March, you ask? Well, we at CJLO play a lot of metal. By "a lot" I don't mean "we have a 3 hour show at 1AM on Saturday." No, I mean we have 8 hours of strictly metal shows and 7 additional hours of loud programming a week. Our top 30 charts every week usually consists of a minimum of 20% metal or loud bands. So yeah, we play a lot of metal.

Barn Burner Interview on Grade A Explosives

Obviously, Montreal is a mecca for all types of music, and metal is no exception. But all bands don't come out of huge cities, so how do these bands form and what happens after they break?
