I'm back and have recovered from my trip to Washington DC. I blame no-one but myself, but Cosmo and friends literally held me down and poured vodka in me. It was terrible. Unlike this weeks show as we get back to normal and play some great new music!

Welcome to the final show of the 2018 membership drive! This was supposed to be a live, streamed show on Facebook, and that did happen. However I forgot to hit the "record" button and simply streamed it. Then Facebook copyright scripts decided that I couldn't play SD-KRTR, and would I like to delete the video or claim ownership? Well Simon, you win this round! So I re-created the show and here we are!

RSA 20th anniversary spectacular
"It was twenty years ago today Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play" - The Beatles
In January of 1998 I sat down with a dilemma. I was a club DJ who had a lot of great music to play, but couldn't experiment *too much* in the club. For some reason I wanted to be a radio DJ, and breaking in to the college radio clique wasn't going to happen. So I experimented with creating a "radio show" within my computer and set up a web site to stream it. On Jan 31 1998 the first episode of RSA went online.
It was terrible of course, but through experience I got better. I was incredibly proud when we hit our first anniversary and had artists such as Jarkko Tuohimaa (Neuroactive) and Alexander Hofman (S.P.O.C.K) record congratulatory greetings.
I had no idea that I'd be still doing it 20 years later.
There are far too many people to thank individually for the support, technical assistance, and listener-ship that has happened over this time. But know this. If you're reading this now, you're a huge part of why I've been successful at this.
To celebrate this, I present to you a short video that will hopefully entertain you and convey how I feel today.
I would also like to present a special guest show that one of our longest listeners, Wolf of Ultimas Lagrimas, a german radio show, who creates music as 'Electric Toys' has done for us.
While I can't promise another 20 years (I'll be 65 then!) I can promise that there is no end in sight for RSA, and I look forward to badly mispronouncing German words, saying "Anyways", and creating the best shows I can.

While we're not at the 20th anniversary as of the time of the posting of this show (thats Jan 31st) this will be the RSA that you listen to while it happens. I'm going to have some special communications, both audio and video on the day of celebrating this show turning 20. But suffice it to say, I can't possibly tell you all just how much your support and listenership means to me. It validates a "hobby" that began in 1995 as a club DJ, and continued long past my retirement. But we'll have more on that on the 31st. Until then please enjoy...

Its about at this time every year that I start getting a bit of cabin fever and the itch to ride my bike gets bad. But this year I have made a commitment to make the 20th anniversary membership drive extra special, and the shows will be live (and posted here for posterity) so I can't escape to my parents place in Florida. But that just means I have plenty of time to work just that bit extra hard on RSA while I pine for the fjords. Hopefully a good number of you have taken the time to watch the RSA Documentary
. I hope you enjoy it as much as you're going to enjoy...

RSA - 01/08/2018
I personally consider this to be the first show of 2018, as the last one was done while I was still on Christmas holidays. Its bloody cold outside in Toronto, so what better way to avoid it than sitting indoors and finishing RSA. Listening to RSA is also a good way to avoid cold! Hopefully a good number of you have taken the time to watch the RSA Documentary
. I hope you enjoy it as much as you're going to enjoy...

Just over a year ago I was approached by this guy who wanted to do a documentary about me & RSA. I figured nothing would come of it, but you never know. Unlike a lot of things that have never actually happened in the last 20 years, I can now say there's a video chronicling how my radio show came about and what goes into making it. Kevin McMillan worked hard on it, I hope you enjoy it!

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!
This is it folks, the last show of 2017! This is the one that takes me the most time to do as I sift through all of the great music we've played in the past year and condense it down to what I consider to be the "best of" show. 2017 was a pretty darn good year, with bands that are new to us making it to the best of. I hope you enjoy my picks!
