Road Trip

Premier 15.00 today: Road Trip Take One!

Loyal listeners, welcome to the Road Trip Blog where George and Gabe will post a few weekly words about our weekly show - and maybe the odd video so you can also visualy stimulate your desire to hit the road!

But before we go any further, a brief introduction is certainly in order.

~ ~ FAQ style! ~ ~

What is K103?
K103 is Gothenburg's #1 Student Radio station, made up mostly of dedicated English/Swedish speaking volunteers who have a message and/or a song that needs to be broadcasted to the world on the K103's premium frequency --> 103.1.

What is Road Trip? … and when too?
It's a half hour of Rollin' power every Saturday at 3pm on K103 Student Radio.
It is also possible to listen to uploaded episodes of Road Trip on the internet. You can do this at your own geographical and schedulinglyical convenience.

Why "Road Trip"?
Road Tripping is one of Canada's favourite pastimes/methods of motion. If Canadians want to go somewhere, they tend to drive since planes and trains are typically much more expensive compared to Europe. These highway voyages are commonly referred to as trips, which tend to happen on (but are not limited to) roads. To road trip is to be the master of your own destiny. Canadian road trip's are famously used to bond friendships, experience cultural landscapes, dissolve friendships, cause back problems and repair friendships. But most importantly, road tripping is the ultimate way to get to know the heart and soul of self, friends, land and song.

Fun fact: To drive from one side of Sweden to the other without stopping takes approximately 4 hours. In Canada, it takes 4 hours to buy snacks, go pee, fill up, and get on the highway. It takes approximately 4 days, 17 litres of coffee and 700 litres of gas to drive across the country without stopping. This radio program has been developed by uncertified Canadian roadtrippers to bring Northern Europeans the most efficient, motivating, poetic combination of melodies that have been unclinically proven to help people tackle journey's of epic proportion without the use of a single airplane.

What kind of music will you play on Road Trip?
We will play 4 songs every week that we highly recommend to you as your travel doctors if you are planning on driving for more than 5 minutes any time in the next rest of your life. These songs will feature both Canadian and Swedish artists who we believe fit the bill of a Northern Road Trip.

Who are you?
Don't you mean, who are We?! That's right, there are two official hosts of K103's weekly Road Trip. And like it or not, they're both Canadian. He and George

George Woodhouse is from Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. He is the founder and co-host of Road Trip. As an international student at Gothenburg University, George is trying his best to drink in the the rich and savoury Swedish culture while also representing Canada and his home-school of Dalhousie University. George studies French and Sociology in the class room, but elsewhere, he studies the art of Road Tripping and the science of entertainingly awkward communication. Stay tuned for his most recent experiment platform: Radio.

Gabriel Lafond-Wise is from Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. His bio piece is much more interesting than George's and requires more thorough research and preparation. Check back soon for everything you've always wanted to know about Gabriel Lafond-Wise. But just to wet your appetite, Gabriel is a Scorpio.

Can I listen to Road Trip on the internet?
Yes

Should I listen to Road Trip?
Yes

Will Road Trip make me want to leave where I am and go anywhere else just for the sake of getting there?
Eventually… yes.

Can I e-mail the Road Trip team with questions, stories and recommendations when I'm not driving a motorized vehicle?
Yes, please do!
roadtrip@k103.com

Every week we will post video links to the songs featured that week on Road Trip. This week we apologize for the lack of Gabe and Swedish Music.
It's likely that we'll post a live or acoustic version of the featured songs here on the blog just to change it up a bit - Youtube simply offers us too many irresistible options.

Fasten yer seatbelts and welcome to Road Trip! This program takes you on a weekly musical journey from Western Canada to Northern Europe. On Road Trip, we may not know where we’re going, but you’ll love the sound of how we get there. Tune in for a weekly dose of Canadian/Swedish music that is handpicked to inspire your very own Road Trip across Canada and Scandinavia, or as we like to call it, Canadanavia. So it’s time to get outta town and roll down the windows. Let the Road Trip begin!
