The Road Show is coming back to Phog Lounge on Wednesday, December 12, a rescheduling of the September edition we had to postpone. Visit the poll page now to vote for your favourites from a selection of the most recent releases in The Listening Project collection. Then join us at Phog Lounge, 157 University Avenue West, Windsor, Ontario at 8pm if you can (don’t forget to bring your laptop or other internet device!). Or if Windsor is just too far a drive, visit the Listening Project website at 8pm on the 12th, watch for a post to appear for each record as the needle drops, and join the conversation! As always, you can listen along at home if you have the records or can hunt down some tracks online, and we will do our best to link to some videos if we can.

The Listening Project Road Show returns to Phog Lounge this Tuesday, September 18, for Volume 3. This time we’ve got a selection of the most recent releases in the LP collection for you to choose from. The poll is open now, so get your votes in for which records will be played! Right here: CLICK TO VOTE NOW
Then come on down to Phog Lounge, 157 University Avenue West in Windsor at 8:00pm, listen with us and join in the conversation. Don’t forget to bring your laptop, phone or other internet device, as the conversation takes place on the Listening Project website so that it’s archived for posterity.
If you want to be part of the project but can’t make it to Phog on Tuesday night, you can always join in from afar in the usual way: as the needle drops on each record, a post will appear on the main page of the website (http://listeningproject.ca) and you can join us there in the comments. Just keep refreshing the page to follow along. We don’t broadcast the music, but you can always listen along by getting yourself a copy of the records, or searching for songs and videos online. Or you can join in the conversation without listening: it’s only marginally about the music anyway.

This is a record I picked up at St Vinnie’s yesterday: a souvenir of the Christ’s Ambassadors Youth Convention 1973 in Scarborough, Ontario (spelled “Scarboro” on the sleeve). I’m sure that the music contained within is as terrible as you can imagine, but I wanted it for the amazing cover art. The deal was pretty much sealed when I opened it up to check out the quality of the disc and found a fold out poster, about 45 x 45cm (18 x 18″) square, that is an exact reproduction of that cover art. SCORE.
I haven’t decided yet if I want to hang it in the living room next to the sacred heart statue, or over my bed.

It’s 1958 on The Listening Project, and tonight we’ll be listening to two records:
The Four Lads Greatest Hits, undated 1958:
and Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode, released March 31, 1958.
The needle will drop on the first record shortly after 8pm EST. If you’re nerding around on the internet on a Saturday night, come by and chat with us! About this music, or about other music, or about whatever. http://lp.pzed.ca/
