Dan Sharp scours Toronto’s seamy underbelly after the murder of a notorious nightspot owner, and finds his own life on the line.
Midweek on BTR means a music discovery mix with DJRePete who’s spinning “psychedelia” via Dungen and Axel Krygier, seductive electronica with Icky Blossoms and CHVRCHES, and alt ballads from Baio and Joel Michael Howard. Plus, hit up info on a neat venue Mikal Cronin is playing in Portland of the McMenamins variety. And get a heads up on a mid-winter festival in Madison, WI, aptly called FRZN, where you can find BTR artist John Mark Nelson. Plus, some beautifully trippy instrumentation with Joanna Newsom. That’s your BTR Wednesday start with DJRePete!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’re relaxing, because this time next week you’ll be in a turkey-induced leftover hangover!

And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR with awesome tunes from The Garden, Wand, Son Little, Here We Go Magic and The Manties
It's the ROCK SHOW! And you know it is... New Joanna Newsom (!!), Pure Bathing Culture, Mantles, and, like, SO much other good ones. It's fun, it rocks, but it won't upset you! It's just right!
This week Hanabi gives us the dirt on his trip to New Orleans. Let’s get Cafe Du Monde right out of the way. It’s truly an amazing place in which $5 gets you instant gratification. A chicory coffee and plate of fresh beignets is really all you need. Open 24 hours too! As Hanabi is wont to do, he visited an Izakaya for a fresh take on octopus. It took him awhile to eat it but it was worth it. He went to the famed Lafitte’s Blacksmith and saw a cop on horseback stroll up and order a drink. Speaking of drinks, he sampled LA 31’s Biere Noir. He stuck around the French Quarter, but that place is loaded with places to eat and drink and just see weird things in general. Oh, Hanabi will be there over halloween and Day of the Dead so there will be more to report.
This week on The Hash, hosts Molly and Dane feature a full show of Relationships in the Digital Age segments. The first segment covers relationship problems caused by social media. Then, the pair delves into revenge porn and what PornHub is doing to combat it. The show wraps with an analysis of the recent Twitter scandal surrounding IHOP's insensitive and offensive tweets.
It’s probably the last week all in 2015 (and a good portion of 2016) that we’re going to see 70 degrees, so I put together a nice, breezy playlist in celebration. We’ve got a lot of electronic sounds on the show today that are perfect to space out to while you’re taking a walk enjoying what’s left of the not-terrible weather! And as always, don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Sound Cloud!
It’s nearly the end of August and great new music is still being released for 2015! First up, we have a reissue of the Reatards’ Grown Up Fucked Up, Jay Reatard’s first band and an excellent album. Plus, we’ve got new stuff from a very cool vocalist Briana Marela, and an exciting and delightfully weird new album from Angel Deradoorian, initially of Dirty Projectors fame. And of course, don’t forget to give BTR a like on Facebook!
It’s Surface Week on BTR, and fashion celebrates surface with print and pattern. On today’s show, I’m joined by dynamic entrepreneur Jesse Finkelstein who, along with his sister Meredith, is behind the creation of two unique design platforms: Print All Over Me and Byco. Print All Over Me (or PAOM) offers its users the opportunity to create digital patterns, then order garments or accessories printed with that design. Byco is a one-stop shop for designers who want to take their ideas from paper to production. Both sites put the power of creativity and fashion design into, well, YOUR hands, and serve as invaluable resources for independent designers. On today’s show, Jesse will talk about the formation of Byco and PAOM, the production process behind both concepts, the components of a successful design, Print All Over Me’s overnight success, Byco’s recent collaboration with ELLE, upcoming projects, and more. And I’ve got a playlist filled with fresh indie releases, including the latest from Wilco and The Mynabirds, along with tracks off the debut albums from “musical pranksters” Silvertron Youth Choir and up-and-coming British electro-artist Georgia. So get your surface ready for a stylish fall with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
DJ Drew's Sunday Show: Week of 08/23/15 with music from Reatards, Fake Tears, Land Lines, Deradoorian, Sweet Baboo
This week on The Hash, hosts Molly and Dane begin by taking a look at a list of do's and don'ts for the first week of college in honor of School Week. Then, the pair delves into athlete and celebrity sexual assault charges and reads "Why I choose to believe accusers." The show wraps with an in depth discussion on Vanity Fair's commentary regarding Tinder's impact on hook up culture.
DJ Drew's Sunday Show. I share my birthday with Fathers Day and the 1st day of Summer. Music ties it all together. Happy Sunday!
