Music Review: Westlife – Where We Are

Despite their amazing sales in the UK (and elsewhere in the world), Westlife have never conquered the American market. Perhaps America prefer boybands that could sing and dance as opposed to listening to four lads pump out tunes while sitting on stools. While the attempts to break the American market might seem futile, it certainly doesn’t stop them for trying to appeal to the audiences across the pond. After taking a year off and tweaking their sound slightly, Westlife is back in full force with their latest album ‘Where We Are’. Continue reading

Lowdown Radio Classic: November 13, 2007

While I work on the next episode of the radio show, I thought why not post a classic episode of the show that I really like. This episode goes back to the beginnings of The Lowdown radio show. In fact, it was our second ever episode and you can really tell the difference between then and now. In this vintage episode, Steve talks with Michael Parkin, a UWO economics professor and former president of the Canadian Economics Association, about the fluctuating value of the Canadian dollar. On entertainment, the guys discuss the latest Westlife single, Home, and compare it to the Michael Bublé original. They also tackle the then days old TV and movies writers strike which prompts Steve to call a strike. The show ends with sports which was the NHL quarter-season review and the first time we play Toss Up for the first time ever. In case you were wondering, that game makes a return on Tuesday. As an added bonus, we’ve touched up the episode a bit to improve the sound.
