You know those songs, those really special ones? The ones that make your skin tingle? They may make you feel like you can throw a Dodge Dakota the length of a football field, or they may bring you to tears every time you hear them. Either way, those songs have your number. They have a certain power over you as a music fan. We talk about those songs here. Music tells us who we are if we really listen. And No Sleep Til Sudbury turns up the volume nice and loud.

It took a while, but former Slik Toxik and current Famous Underground and Classic Albums Live singer Nick Walsh finally sat down with NSTS to talk about a few of the songs that make his skin vibrate. Because our chat was so lengthy, we didn't quite make it to those songs in part one of his time with us - but we did talk about his recent promotion a…
 
There haven't been many times over the 240 odd episodes of the No Sleep 'til Sudbury podcast I've done where I've been lost for words. But I was here. The wonderful and immensely talented Sandra Bouza joined me at my home this week for the first live NSTS performance since 2020, and as usual, she was a delight. And this time I was not only impresse…
 
In the last episode of No Sleep 'til Sudbury, we paid tribute to the memory of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. But what about Dave Grohl?

It's always difficult when artists we admire pass on, but it's a little more difficult when it happens so long before their time. This week on NSTS we pay tribute to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, an incredible musician and, as Queen's Roger Taylor described him, "sunshine in human form".
 
The infinitely talented Nelson Sobral returns to the show this week, and I'm delighted to host him. His new record Second Arrow just dropped, featuring the single "Dancing Fool" and soon-to-be megahit "In The Middle Of The Night". Nelson shares the context behind the Buddha-inspired title of his new album, and we chat about the old blues greats, di…
 
Completely by coincidence, my guest on NSTS this week is none other than longtime CHUM-FM Morning Show producer Tom Jokic. He was scheduled to appear in my studio two years ago to the day for his episode, but was forced to cancel due to a new concern people were calling COVID. Exactly two years later, Tom makes good on his appearance by turning up …
 
Andy Curran's image occupied a space on my teenage bedroom wall. The guy is an icon. But he's also an extremely humble human being and a fantastic conversationalist. Andy joins me on NSTS this week to talk about the new musical project he's working on with Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson called Envy of None, an experimental, industrial-flavoured musica…

In this final No Sleep 'til Sudbury episode of 2021, I decided to share some of my favourites from the Christmas playlists heard in the Jensen house throughout the holiday season.

My pal Rik Emmett returns to NSTS this week for part two of our chat about his new poetry book Reinvention, and we cover a lot of ground indeed.

He's back! Triumph frontman Rik Emmett, and now Rik Emmett poet, takes over the No Sleep 'til Sudbury podcast for the next two weeks to talk about his new book of poetry, called Reinvention. This isn't a rock star vanity project. It's a personal, emotional glimpse into Rik's life history and a look at the world from his perspective, written with tr…

The great Barney Bentall returns to NSTS this week to talk about his new instrumental record called RanchWriters, a collaboration with his Spirit of the West pal Geoffrey Kelly.

Last week we looked at Guns N' Roses singer W. Axl Rose from a factual, historical viewpoint of his life and career.

In other words, last week we talked what the music sounds like. This week, …
 
NSTS is back this week with part one of a two part series featuring Guns N' Roses frontman W. Axl Rose, one of the intriguing, beguiling, and mysterious figures in rock and roll history.

Creem magazine writer Jeffrey Morgan returns to the show this week to unveil his very unusual NSTS skin vibration playlist.

Jeffrey and I also discuss his Van Halen Diver Down record review for Creem, with b…
 
Remember Creem magazine? Remember Lester Bangs? This week's NSTS guest, author and rock critic Jeffrey Morgan, worked for both of them.

Rock Critic C…
 
Dark and mysterious Manic Street Preachers guitarist Richey Edwards vanished on February 1, 1995, and was never heard from again. Was it a suicide, or was it staged to look like one?
