    Since us XMer's can now get this channel, thought I would start keeping tabs on it and check it out this Sat night- little worried that he lists Pink twice on this week's show :bitingnails:



    Tunes about rock and roll for Saturday, June 8, 2013

    Alan Freed may be the disc jockey who first used the term rock and roll on the air but this week on Vinyl Tap Randy Bachman repeats it over and over as he continues his look at tunes about rock and roll. Just like millions of teenagers around the world Randy fell in love with the new sound that became a huge part of his life. Many other songwriters also paid homage by using the words rock, roll and of course rock and roll in their song titles. The list this week includes Chuck Berry, Motorhead, Boston, Pink, Elton John, Bon Jovi, Pink, Traffic, Bryan Adams and many others. The kids wanna rock so be sure to tune in to the Tap.

    Since this channel is in Mono, we have another option of catching it on the tunein app.

    Vinyl Tap is a Canadian radio show hosted by Randy Bachman, musician alumnus of the famous Canadian rock bands The Guess Who and Bachman–Turner Overdrive. Each episode of the show first airs on CBC Radio One(Ch 169) Saturday nights from 7 to 9 p.m., and is then repeated on CBC Radio 2 Sunday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and again on Radio One Fridays from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

    In the two hour program, Randy Bachman plays predominantly classic rock, pop and older jazz music and tells various stories behind the selections, including numerous personal anecdotes. The program's format somewhat resembles Finkleman's 45s, the program it replaced on the CBC Radio schedule, although Bachman presents a very different range of musical selections than Danny Finkleman did. Some of Bachman's musical stories from the program have been published in book form in fall 2011.

    Bachman's wife Denise McCann Bachman also participates in the show, reading listener mail (typically 40 minutes into the first hour), doing fact research and commenting. In 2010, Bachman hosted an episode of the show live from the Glenn Gould Studio at the CBC Broadcast Centre in Toronto. Titled "Guitarology 101", the episode featured Bachman, McCann, Mick Dalla-Vee and Brent Knudsen talking about various aspects of guitars, including live performances of a number of classic rock and rhythm and blues songs. CBC Vancouver senior radio producer Tod Elvidge engineers, edits and compiles each show for broadcast.

    This week on an encore edition of Vinyl Tap is time to get your motor running once again as Randy Bachman revs up a show featuring music dedicated to motorcycles. Ever since someone got tired of pedaling a two-wheeler and decided to add an engine the motorcycle has represented freedom for a lot of people. As Randy says, it's like flying on the ground. For some it is a symbol of rebellion... think of James Dean in "Rebel Without A Cause" or Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in "Easy Rider". And of course the mighty motorcycle has inspired musicians for years. Our two-wheel tunesmiths this week include Steppenwolf, Neil Young, The Shangrilas, The Doobie Brothers, BTO, The Beach Boys, AC/DC and many others. And if you are born to be wild, be sure to tune in to the Tap.

    Broadcast Time:
    Saturdays at 7 p.m. (8 p.m. AT, 8:30 p.m. NT) on CBC Radio One CBC Radio 1 Sirius Channel 159

    This week on an encore edition of Vinyl Tap Randy Bachman is going to have some more fun with nonsense lyrics.

    Dip dip dip sha na la la hey hey do wah and a whole bunch more words, or simply sounds, that appear in some of the most memorable pop songs that people just love to sing along with.
    This is by no means new or limited to pop music. Jazz singers performed scat singing using sounds and syllables that work with an improvised melody or rhythm. Even Frank Sinatra sang dooby-dooby-do. These semi-words were the backbone of a lot of do-wop songs and some of the most modern rappers rely on them when laying down a rhythm. This week's playlist includes The Silhouettes, The Beatles, Simple Minds, Journey, Pink, Sheryl Crowe, BTO and ma-ma-ma-many others.

    Hey you, get a job, get jiggy with it and tune in to the Tap.
