Carlin’s originally from Edmonton but likes Toronto so much he calls it his new hometown. If you like bad reality TV, playing music and ice cream, he likes your style. Carlin is a huge fan of music and is proud to be part of a station that is too.

I’m Lana, nice to meet you. I’m new at Indie, but I’m a giant indie music nerd, so I should fit in fine, right? Things I like: Canadian indie music, beer, nachos, friendship, anything to do with Dolly Parton. Things I don’t like: rats with wings (pigeons), tie dye, devilled eggs, jerks. One of my goals is to have my own nachos on the Sneaky Dee’s menu (like DFA and F**cked Up did.) Here’s the order: King’s Crown, no meat, add lettuce + hot sauce. Try it. It also needs a name, help a gal out?Visit Lana’s page.
Brent grew up feeling like a city kid living a small town. Living an hour north of Toronto in Willow Beach, he came to the city weekly to catch shows. He’s very thankful that commute is over. Brent’s rarely serious; goofball comedies are his jam, and he’ll take a Rom-Com over an action flick any day. If you’re downtown and see a guy in a floral shirt you’d never wear yourself, you’re probably looking at Brent.Visit Brent’s page.
Sarah splits her time hosting shows at Indie88 and SiriusXM. While some may call Sarah an old soul when it comes to her taste in music, she enjoys discovering new music just as much as her dusty old records. One thing’s for sure though; her preference is loud guitars and as much cowbell as possible. Sarah also co-hosts a podcast called Bands ‘n Buds featuring conversations in and around music with artists, producers, music writers and everyone in between. Visit Sarah’s page.
