Hey, it’s Friday. How are you doing over there? My combo of insomnia and melatonin has made me quite sloth-like, TGIF!
As per usual I’m on air 1-5pm, tune in, say hi, and in addition to keeping you entertained and informed, I’m giving away $50 worth of fresh pasta from Dal Moro’s today. Be one with carbs with me. Feel free to call or text in to say hello 416-588-0881 and tell me how you’re doing.
You know how I know we’re nearing day 50 in quarantine? Someone made of a video of seals singing Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose.” It’s absurd, but got me laughing in a matter of seconds, so… if you need it, here it is!
Watch a Wilco doc
While you’re still getting in on that couch time, did you hear Wilco’s 2002 documentary I Am Trying To Break Your Heart is free to stream this week? It sure is. The crew follows the band during the making of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and gives you an intimate view of the band’s recording process of one of their greatest albums.
Netflix Party with Sam Roberts

Tonight, hang with us and watch the 1997 action movie Dante’s Peak! All you have to do is download the Netflix Chrome extension before logging in via the link to the movie before it starts at 8pm, it’s very easy.
