Best of the Strombo Show: Justin Rutledge, Dennis Lyxzen + Refused

Here’s your musical companion for the week.  The key is that this is a commercial-free, algorithm-free, consultant-free show for music lovers!
We talk beautiful songs, addiction and transformation with the wonderful songwriter Justin Rutledge. He comes by my house with his guitar and plays magically. Plus the punk and hardcore legend Dennis Lyxzén from Refused joins us to talk War Music.
We run the table with music from: White Zombie, Pleasure Seekers, The Chemical Brothers, Moon Duo, Jay Som, Dominique Fils-Amie, G4 JAG, Arcade Fire, Nirvana, City And Colour, Courtney Love and Hole, Dolly Parton, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rheostatics, Tom Waits, Amigo The Devil, Refused and more.
Plus we are back with a late night snack of Mac N’ Cheese with Bob Mackowycz.
Gather enough of the beautiful, empowered and the strong things to feed that good wolf. We are the Spirit Of Radio. The Strombo Show, Sunday 8pm on CBC Music
