Pirate Life Radio



Broadcasting out of Calgary, AB Canada, PIRATE LIFE RADIO is an independent podcast seeking to expose local and international underground music. Co-hosted by Kyle Gritchen & Josh Wallace, two unwavering fans of honest music, Pirate Life Radio is dedicated to bringing the listener stories from the seas less travelled- straight from the mouths of the people who were there. Featuring interviews with some of the citys top talent and a ripping soundtrack to match, PLR aims to provide an outlet for underground bands to showcase their art. So join your two favorite salty sea dogs as they share their unique perspective, in a way that can only be described as two drunks waxing poetic on things you probably dont care about, but definitely will, because lets face it this totally beats listening to your dad talk about the time he scored the game winning touchdown back in 86 for the 9000th time. Capturing words and sounds in the basements and dive bars of the world THIS IS PIRATE LIFE RADIO STAY TUNED
