TUBA NOIR Fundraiser Special, (Preview Announcement), Wed April 16, 9-11 PM

April 13, 2014

Yes, for this year’s Co-op Radio Spring Membership Drive we continue our tradition of throwing over the accordion in favour of some other neglected or slighted instrument.  Let’s see, we’ve done kazoo, ukulele, bagpipes, musical saw (and theremin and glass harmonica all in one episode!), baritone sax….

Here is the audio promotional spot we did announcing the Tuba Noir show.

Which I made into a video, how fun is that?


Remember to tune in and listen:

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 9-11 PM in Vancouver, BC, Canada
or on

And do consider clicking on the Co-op Radio link on top of this page to make a donation and support our station.

This episode is helping raise money to build a wheelchair (and tuba) accessible washroom for our new radio station!

It’s a good feeling to be a donor to support such awesome things!  So please do.

Music used in there:

*Band – Song – Album (year) – Where they’re from if we know. – contact  etc.

* Zulya – Insomnia / yoqosizliq – Elusive (2002) – Tatarstan, Russia, Australia –

* Ahilea – Come on Bejbe – Cafe Svetlana (2009) – Ohrid, Macedonia / Sarajevo / Vienna, Austria – sounds like the Monkees

* Los Dareyes De La Sierra – Los Sembradores [Banda Version] – Corridazos “Con Tuba Y Acordeón” (2008) – Navojoa, Sonora, Mexico –

    Tragically, I think the Tuba Noir episode wasn’t archived, so all we have is this promotional video 😿 If you have a copy of that tape, please let us know!
