A walk in the Park, Volume 210

WARDEN TRACKS... Vancouver rockers, Shocore, are the proud proprietors of today's feature.  From their 2001 debut, "Devil Rock Disco," this is one of the Bear's most requested songs ever, and it always makes me laugh.  I have foggy memories of partying with them at Stage 13 (and a few other places), but I do know there were usually strippers involved.  Tough days at the office, ha ha!  I couldn't find an "official" site for Shocore, but you can read some band bios here, here, or here.  In the meantime, click right for "BONECRACKER," good times indeed.

TOPIC OF THE DAY... Favourite & least favourite things about Christmas.  Call 780-451-8666, or click our Facebook, Twitter and Text (SMS) links at the top of this page.B.S. loves kids
