Or to all you hepcats – Mayhem $wings, daddy-o. But enough about that cool new Jazz music, let’s talk MAYHEM. On this week’s show we’re going to be hearing from the $wingin’ Utter$. They’re currently on a cross-Canada tour with Lagwagon and just released their new album, “Fistful of Hollow,” last week so it’s about time they pay a visit to Mayhem…over the phone of course. Tomorrow I’m also going to be delving back into music of Mayhems passed with some stuff that hasn’t been played since episode 18. We’re on episode 281 for those of you keeping track – so it’s been a while. Tune in to CHRY 105.5 FM from 8-9 pm EST and catch the madness. Listen online or on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) too.
So it’s that time of the week again! The time where you sit down and listen to MAYHEM on your radio. This week on the show we’re hearing from We Outspoken. They have an album coming out this week called Musicomania and we’re going to be talking about that. I’ll probably spin a track from it too…’cause you know…it just makes sense! I also have tunes from A Global Threat, The Filthy Radicals, and Koffin Kats on deck. So there’s that… *ahem* Listen live from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM. You can tune in over the interwebs and TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) too.
Back in September I had the privilege of interviewing Joey Cape for the second time. We not only spoke about Lagwagon but about this thing called One Week Records as well. This week I’m airing the part of the interview where we talk about One Week Records. Joey is one of the best people to interview because…well…he talks a lot. So much so that I’ve managed to get two interviews out of one! Stay tuned because in the coming weeks I’ll be airing a second interview where we talk about the new Lagwagon album and tour. However, this week we’re solely going to hear about his cool new project that is not quite a record label; One Week Records. Listen live Wednesday night from 8-9pm EST to catch this and more on Mayhem. Tune in to CHRY 105.5 FM on your radio, online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or just wait.
It’s Halloween on Friday! In honour of such a sacred holiday this week’s episode of Mayhem is dedicated to songs of the sci-fi/horror variety. That means you’ll be hearing a lot of psychobilly, right? Wrong. It’s a mixed bag and there’ll definitely be some surprises. Also on tomorrow’s show Toby from Red Scare Industries will be calling in to talk about their 10th anniversary, a new comp and a bunch of other stuff. I figured Red SCARE would be fitting considering it’s the Halloween show. So clever. So listen live from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM, online, TV (Rogers 945/Bell FIbe 973), or just chill til later. Also, remember you still have until this Saturday to donate to CHRY through Mayhem as we have just come off our annual fund drive!
For those of you who haven’t been paying attention lately (hey it happens) we’re in the middle of fundraising for CHRY 105.5 FM. Tonight marks the second and final episode of the 2014 fundraising campaign for Mayhem. I can’t think of a better way to leave this year’s fund drive than with mucho monetary love. However, this can only happen through the support of listeners like you. There is no donation too small (or too big…) because every little bit helps keep CHRY 105.5 FM on the air, and helps allow CHRY the ability to bring you the content it does (like an hour long punk rock radio show) on the FM dial. So please support, even if it’s simply by spreading the word of this fund drive. Listen live to tonight’s show 8-9 pm on CHRY 105.5 FM, online, or on your TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) and call 416-736-5656 to donate. You can also donate online by following this link: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/donate-to-mayhem-on-chry-1055-fm-support-community/ Fat Wreck Chords CD gift packs to come with donations of $20 or more!
Good news everyone! Less Than Jake is coming to town very soon. In fact they’ll be here in 10 days as of tomorrow, and what better way to start your 10 day countdown than to hear from Chris DeMakes! Chris from Less Than Jake will be calling in to talk about their current tour and maybe some other stuff… We’ll see… I can’t make any promises. Listen live from 8pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM. I’ll also be spinning some new Rancid and lots of other ear goodies for you to enjoy. Remember you can also tune in online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or wait for me to get my ass around to uploading the show here (you can also click to listen to past episodes… It’s like Back to the Future but better!)
Good news, everyone! It’s currently Tuesday o’clock which means that tomorrow is Wednesday. Wednesday is a lot of things…”Hump Day,” a day in the middle of the week but at the end of the alphabet, the day my garbage gets picked up…but mostly it’s the day you get to hear Mayhem live on the radio! This week’s show is going to feature two interviews for the price of one. Who are we hearing from this week? Well if you couldn’t figure it out from the cryptic title of this post we’re hearing from both The Dirty Nil and Mad Caddies. It may seem like a lot to cram into one show (it is) but we’re doing it anyway! Listen live from 8-9 pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM, catch it online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or listen later. Smell ya later.
