Description: Welcome to Harlequin Canon- a show where each week we explore a different obscure subgenre of music and dust off the musical canon, revealing unknown and forgotten bands that helped define music. Like other art, musical aesthetics and styles are a palimpsest of older ideas--so I'll do my best to unravel those histories! I know there are a lot of birders in Victoria who may be thinking of the harlequin duck— a small duck of fast-flowing streams around the Arctic and North Pacific—but the name of the show actually refers to Harlequin, a playful clown-like figure traditionally used in silent pantomime, with a history going all the way back to pre-medieval European folklore. This show is for all the music nerds out there, hopefully it will enirch your evening sonorously.

This show shares a bi-weekly spot with Renegade Rock.
