OPERATION MANATEE MUSIC PRIZE 2016: THE LONG LIST

There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. (Cohen)

This has been a fucked up year for music. We weren’t ready for Bowie to go, we didn’t see it coming with Prince, we thought Sharon Jones had it beat… Even with the old-timers – part of me thought Leonard Cohen would make to 200, and Leon Russell would at least make it to his 80s. Despite the darkness, though, there has been so much great new music come into the world – including some by those greats we’ve lost.

Operation Manatee #2: In which Cory mourns a piece of his youth…

In this show, Cory and Chris play a selection of hard-hitting, ear-bleeding rock like Grade 8 to modern hip hop such as Cadence Weapon and dubstep from Borgore. Also, Cory laments a little over the loss of a band.

Yes, yes, we’re back! Every Tuesday night from 11:00 PM to midnight, Chris and Cory will lead you on a small musical journey through some of our favorite songs to some new hits to some just plain, weird noises.

This week will be an experiment. We’ve always wanted to try to record the show so those of you who aren’t night owls can listen as well. There might be a breakthrough and we’re not sure if it will work in glorious fashion or take down the whole radio station. You’ll have to listen to find out!

……or of course, if it works, then listen later… (cough).
