We took a machine, back in time, to Edmonton's music scene, circa 1980-something...
back to a little radio show called Lost In The Files.....

DJ Dash Paisley and Dr. Steady-hand-in-the-background decided to re-visit their crusty punk Edmonton music days and play CJSR DJ again. Together we hosted the first edition of Dusty, Crusty, and Rusty - a punk show dedicated to Edmonton's 80's punk scene. We laughed, I cried. Dash made a point of keeping all of the tastiest tales off the air and I promised to keep my mouth shut. Dr. Steady-hand-in-the-background dropped the needle, it was a group effort, we kept the vinyl spinning. Be sure to keep your ear to the mud because this will happen again, and it will be more fun than ripping down a single-track trail with your butt in the air, cheeks lacerated from the whip whip whip of tiny branches, arms bent, forearms pumping, yelping "ei yi yi rubber duckies!"
