2. Swizzle on the Radio

Miss J., a friend of Swizzle Studio, recently made a donation to the program Vinyl From the CIUT Crypt for which she received access to two hours of air time. Knowing that Swizzle Studio has what Jimmy Rabbitte would call a "catholic taste in music", Miss J. nominated Christine Cosby and myself as her proxy disk jockeys. The air date does not jibe with Christine's atom-smashing duties, so Rob alone will be spending several hours in the University of Toronto's 40 year old vinyl archives, winkling out thematic links and long lost gems.
