The Hockey Show - Episode 114

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is excited to have not one, but TWO, guests on the show tonight! We've been lucky enough to have a few musicians on to talk about their hockey experiences such as Vince Fontaine and Jay Bodnar, and we're going to feature two more musicians who want to talk some puck! I had the pleasure of listening to the newest single from their upcoming album, and I have to say that these guys should be on your playlist going forward!

Tonight, The Hockey Show is proud, honoured, and privileged to speaking with Ciarán Downes, Jake Heise and Cole Mortillaro of the Burlington, Ontario-based band known as Big Lonely! These guys are "a picnic basket of smoldering emotion, waiting to erupt" - their words, not mine - as they make their way onto the Canadian and worldwide music scene! Honestly, they have a great sound, and we'll lead into the show with their new single, Dirty Clocks, which you can find embedded below as a preview! We'll talk to Ciarán (vocalist and guitarist), Jake (lead singer and guitarist) and Cole (drummer) about their music, their influences, their new video linked below which features hockey, their hockey interests, and a pile of other stuff. If you're trying to decipher which two of the four pictured above are Jake and Cole, Jake is on the very left of the photo, Ciarán is out front, and Cole is on the very right!

There will be no 3 ROUNDS DEEP! or Russian Roundup tonight as we talk with the gents unless they want to play. The phones will also be closed as we chat with Jake and Cole via phone, so we're not going to put them on hold by any means. However, if you have a question for the guys that you want asked on-air, feel free to use the Twitter or Facebook link below!

Here's the video for "Dirty Clocks", Big Lonely's newest single off the album Close Your Eyes, Keep Talking that is set to hit record store shelves on December 5th! It makes a great Christmas gift for your music-loving, hockey-mad Christmas wish-maker this year, so get down to your local record store in a few weeks and pick up Close Your Eyes, Keep Talking!

We'll be live on the air at 5:30pm with Big Lonely's Ciarán Downes, Jake Heise and Cole Mortillaro! Hit us up on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show.
