First, I want to thank each and every one of you for your support of Pull the Plug over the last five (yes, five) years. It's been quite the experience! So many talented musicians have come through the studio, many have remained as friends. As our fans, you couldn't have been more supportive and many of you are the epitome of the word, putting "fan" back into "fanatic". We have even welcomed a few fans into the studio! Parents, friends, Chad from Elmira, Elish Lisha, Munchixo, Currie and Trista Rochelle and of course we will always remember our late night chats with The Patio Party and the Subway Guys.
The day of conventional radio has come to an end for PTP. As of the end of August, we are having our Plug Pulled, if you will. However...most of you, I would assume, know that we don't go down that easy. We have been busy at work getting things in place to have a Podcast go live.
We will be recording a weekly show, available for download, featuring the same banter you love, the raunchy sex stories, the crazy drug incidents and of course a ton of great music chat. Each show will feature music from our favourite Pull the Plug artists and friends and we will continue to bring acoustic guests into the studio.
The Sound Distillery in downtown Kitchener with Will & Dave being the coolest guys on the planet, stepping in within the first 24hours of our cancellation, picking up the ball and running with it. Here's some kind words from Will about the new project;
"Recently Dave and I had the opportunity to venture into a day of planning with the city of Kitchener and other music minded folk about building Waterloo region's music scene.
Not ones to wait around for things to happen when Conestoga College's radio station decided to cancel all specialty programming we saw an opportunity for something pretty damn cool.
We will be welcoming Shannon Bryan, Justin Godelie, and Justin Briner and their program Pull the Plug into our studios to record their show each week. The idea is to go big. Real big. So expect some really awesome music, and good videos. "
We are all super excited about our transition into the booming world of online podcasting, where fucks, dick jokes and donkey sex are fully supported.
Lastly, I'd like to thank my PTP Crew, Justin G, Justin Briner & Michael "Angry" Hawkins. You boys are the fucking raddest kids I know. Here's to new adventures.
