Skule Nite is a famous musical/comedy revue group comprised on engineering students at the University of Toronto. Recently, they interrupted a first year engineering exam with a rap about the hardships of being an engineering student. The video has taken off on YouTube but hasn’t made the rounds on the blogosphere yet. I think it’s a matter of time.
The Lowdown was on-air tonight with the third and final “Previously Enjoyed” episode of 2009. This episode originally aired on March 31st, 2009 which was our 2009 April Fools episode. On tonight’s show, the guys show what politics and US-Canada relations would be like in the realm of professional wrestling on Tuesday Night Raw Is CPAC. Then, Steve and Jackie keep on the pro wrestling theme with their WrestleMania 25 preview. This is followed by the unveiling of Steve’s new rap album “It’s A Wrap.” Steve and Jackie discuss Jackie’s new job as the manager of the CHRW softball by trying to analyze the team’s players. They cap off the show by going giving out some real world exam tips. It’s an all-time Lowdown radio classic that you can’t miss.
It’s not old enough to be a classic but here is an older episode of The Lowdown radio show that airs in London, Ontario. This episode is one of the three Best Of episodes of The Lowdown that we run every year. On tonight’s episode, Steve and Jackie examine what politics would be like if it were more like professional wrestling. Then, Steve hijacks Jackie’s attempt to give out exam tips by trying to find the best energy drink to pull an all-nighter. When Jackie regains control, he drags Steve around to find the best study spots on campus. Steve fails to interview Paul Martin and he still thinks he was still calling the hockey player. The show is capped of with classic Randy Moller goal calls and Steve’s attempts at Western Mustang-ized goal calls. It’s some of the best segments from Season 2 of The Lowdown in one handy episode.
The other day, I mentioned the Elbow song Grounds for Divorce on my Twitter. That inspired me to post this classic episode of The Lowdown radio show. This episode uses that song as a sort of theme song for our in-depth test of three energy drinks to help you study. This episode also happens to be one of my favourites and is on my Top 5 list of all-time great episodes of The Lowdown.
On this episode, I examine the UWO sales pitch at Fall Preview Day. We try to fix Queen’s Homecoming. Then I commandeer Jackie’s attempt to give real exam tips by trying to figure out which energy drink is best for pulling all-nighters. When Jackie regains control, he drags me along to find good study spots on campus. It’s a classic half-hour of fun and insanity that only The Lowdown can bring you.
