October 11, 2008 - Free Kick the Vote
First of all, let me say that last weekend's edition of the Freekick show was in no way inspired or influenced by the federal election campaign then underway, and that we are as annoyed as anyone by the results of Tuesday's voting. And with nothing changed, it'll all be happening again before we know it.... So in the meantime, dear listeners, just keep kicking against the pricks!

OK, that's out of the way. On last Saturday's show we elected to accentuate the positive, casting our lot with winners such as:
Kardinal Offishal, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Junior Reid, Lloyd Robinson, Alton and the Flames (Alton Ellis - pictured here - RIP), Lee Perry & the Upsetters, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Jorge Ben, Vashti Bunyan, Charles Fox Singers, The Sensations, Flight Of The Conchords, Kid Koala, Suba, The Pinker Tones, Deerhoof, Peter Hammill, Can, Pink Skull, Margaret Uiauperk and Nahainaq Ulimanii, Arthur Lipsett, Alexandre St-Onge, Ravi, Kiran Ahluwalia, Autorickshaw, Sowfi, and Rhythm Activism.

That's it for now. Next show is Sat Oct. 25 from 9-11 eastern on CKUT 90.3 fm. Soyez des notres!
