BVST might be the best show on cjlo, but i think you'll like these too...

the almighty riff
all hail! classic hard rock and heavy metal rules the airwaves on sunday night from 6 to 8 pm EST, so dust off the nuthuggers, warm up your pipes and raise your fist for rock'n'roll with brennan "zombieboy" richer!

turn down the suck
join your humble host johnny suck every wednesday night from 9 to 11 pm EST for "sixty minutes of heavy-ass rock, bad-ass metal, and kick-ass hardcore". suffice it to say, you'll have trouble sitting down for the rest of the week.

degeneration overdrive
feed yr addiction every monday night from 8 to 9 pm EST... this is where i go to get the no bullshit rock'n'roll that i love. with yr host flo from DGOD magazine - a man who loves hair metal as much, if not more, than i do!

the idle minds
"punk... and stuff. i dunno..." people, it doesn't get more accurate than that. idle matt mans the airwaves on monday nights from 9 to 10 pm EST playing punk... and stuff. i do know, and now you do too.

beyond that graveyard III
friday nights from 9 to midnight, let the k-man and friends cook up a signature blend of rock'n'roll, country, punk and metal (sound familiar?), with a little hip hop and reggae thrown in for flavour. if you like my show, you'll love this one.

hooked on sonics
tuesday night? wish you were listening to BVST? too bad, punk. need more loud guitars and scrappy rock'n'roll (and maybe just a little emo)? tune in between 6 and 8 pm and let omar goodness ease what ails ya.

losing my edge
garage, punk, indie and noise find a home not once but TWICE a week. no rock'n'roll is too noisy and no topic is too taboo for losingmyalex and friends... check 'em out tuesdays from 8 to 10 pm EST or sundays from 2 to 4 pm...

and don't forget to check out these bands...

you know this band. you love this band. they need no introduction.
ever seen slide guitar played on a flying V? heartbreakin' and hard rockin' the adam brown are all about the perfect blending of country music and rock'n'roll. plus, they're more fun than a barrel of monkeys. and that, my friends, is a lot of fun.
possibly montreal's loudest band, bionic will kick your ass and leave you in the dirt, begging for more. their records are great, but don't do this band justice, 'cause you just can't calibrate recording equipment to adequately capture that kind of unrelenting ferocity.
fronted by canadian rock royalty sir ian blurton and his lovely lady and bone crushing bass wielder katie lynn, c'mon wipes the floor one-handed with much of what passes for rock these days. balls out, but catchy as hell, this may just be the future of rock'n'roll, and i just can't get enough.
tricky woo are the undisputed godfathers of the montreal rock scene. with their raw blend of garage, blues and psychedelic rock, tricky woo have been showing us how it's done for a long time. thankfully, it's not long enough. we're glad you're back, let the good times roll.
not only are they the nicest guys in rock'n'roll, maximum rnr are definitely one of the hardest rockin' bands i've seen in a long time. their eps are brilliant, their live show is ever more intense. i can't wait for their first full-length, and trust me, neither can you.
these boys serve up heapin' helpin's of rock'n'roll the way it's meant to be consumed: pipin' hot and southern fried. their live shows are legendarily debaucherous, and white cowbell oklahoma's clem clemson has appeared on BVST on numerous occasions with all the gory details.
this is the perfect synthesis of handclapping, sing-along catchiness and no-bullshit headbanging heaviness, all searing guitars, pummelling bass and drums and soaring vocals. trust me, when singer mikey announces "hey, we're priestess and we're gonna fuck you", he is not kidding.

pimpin' is my business...
with a name like west island is the best island records, you know this isn't your typical record label. home to the adam brown, wibi records is where country music and cock rock collide. show my friend shawny some love and go check it out.

business is good.
