Wade McNeill Hour on the Edge
Corus Radio Toronto’s 102.1 the Edge announces the launch of The Wade MacNeil Show weeknights beginning Monday, November 3 from 6 p.m. to midnight. Listeners will get an exclusive backstage pass into the world of alternative rock from host, Wade MacNeil, as he draws upon his tour experiences and highlights the ins and outs of Canada’s underground music scene.
Along with regular guest interviews, listeners will hear unique features like Locals Only, Wade’s nod to the local music scene in Toronto and around the world, and Born Too Late, a nightly throw-back of songs from the late 70’s and 80’s that started it all and are featured regularly on the Edge’s Sunday afternoon series, Spirit of Radio Sundays.
Wade is no stranger to the spotlight. For 11 years, he was the guitarist for one of Canada’s most successful post-hardcore bands, Alexisonfire, and is currently the lead singer of U.K.-based band, Gallows. From clubs, arenas and amphitheatres across North America to Europe’s biggest rock festivals, Wade’s musical career has given him an encyclopedic knowledge on music and pop culture.
“As a musician, Wade brings a completely unique and personal perspective of the music industry to Edge listeners,” said Dave Farough, General Manager, Corus Radio Toronto. “We’re thrilled to have him join our on-air roster, engaging fans with stories from the road and sharing his take on new emerging artists.”
