The Wild 10 Countdown for October 26, 2011

For the 4th week on top, Feist continues to dominate the countdown. It’s still being played on a couple of CKCU shows. Since it’s funding drive time, there’s a bit of a delay writing the entry as various radio shows need help getting phone pledges and the station needs to get 1/3 of the funding from the listeners. There were a couple of new debuts from Kathryn Calder and Rich Aucoin. The top 5 spots got some changes this week. Here’s the top 10 list.

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (4th week at #1)

2. Change The Sheets – Kathleen Edwards

3. Adieu – Coeur De Pirate

4. Rows of Houses – Dan Mangan

5. Niagara – Ohbijou

6. Shaking Down The Old Bones – The Darcys

7. Hold You – Elliott Brood

8. Cultured Man – The Zolas

9. It – Rich Aucoin

10. Who Are You? – Kathryn Calder

The Wild 10 Countdown for October 19, 2011

If you reading side by side from my regular blog, this week’s edition was unique because the top 10 was split into parts from the podcast and the live edition for the radio show. The top 5 was aired live on CKCU-FM because of the Dan Mangan interview I got to do. For the third week on the top spot, Feist continues to reign at number one as various radio shows are continuing to play her excellent songs from Metals. Dan Mangan, Ohbijou and Kathleen Edwards continue to garner strong airplays on other radio shows as well. The new entry this week is Vancouver’s The Zolas as they announced a 7 inch EP to be released soon.
Here’s the top 10;

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (3rd week at #1)

2. Rows of Houses – Dan Mangan

3. Niagara / Scalpel Blade – Ohbijou (The live airing was Scalpel Blade. The podcast edition was Niagara)

4. Change The Sheets – Kathleen Edwards

5. Adieu – Coeur De Pirate

6. Hold You – Elliott Brood

7. Shaking Down The Old Bones – The Darcys

10. Gosh, Darn, Damn – Rebekah Higgs

Extra Comment
Speaking of Feist again, I stumbled on my Facebook news feed and saw this. It’s The Undiscovered First performed on The Black Cab Sessions. It’s a nice video and Feist sounds amazing!

The Wild 10 Countdown for October 5, 2011

It’s a new month and a new number one to begin October. There’s been a whole slew of great releases from Canadian artists. This week’s number one is none other than Feist. Metals was dropped on Tuesday and so far, there’s been good response to the album. A big plus was that the countdown was live again on the airwaves for this week only. Due to the fact that I need to do a live phone interview with Casey Mecija of Ohbijou.
There’s no new debuts this week and I was slightly occupied with other things happening in Ottawa.
Here’s the top 10 list.

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (First week at #1)

2. Rows of Houses – Dan Mangan (Forgot to mention that he’s The X3 Artist of the Month for October)

3. Niagara – Ohbijou

4. Change The Sheets – Kathleen Edwards

5. If I Get Old – Elliott Brood

6. Time Is Right – Cuff The Duke

7. Gosh, Darn, Damn – Rebekah Higgs

8. Adieu – Coeur De Pirate

9. Shaking Down The Bones – The Darcys

10. I’m On Fire – Whitehorse (It’s a Bruce Springsteen cover)

Another Comment
Since I won’t add it on my regular blog. It’s such a surprise to hear Steve Jobs pass away. Jobs was a great visionary.
