The Ongoing History of New Music is Canada’s longest running radio documentary. Since its debut in January 1993, hundreds and hundreds of shows have aired in Toronto, across Canada and through the US. (There’s been a lot of bootlegging which we’ll take as flattery, too.) Each week, the show looks at something from the alt-rock universe, from artist profiles to various thematic explorations. Whatever the episode, you’re definitely going to learn something that you might not find anywhere else. Trust us on this.
Chili Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante may be rich and famous, but he’s lived a very hard and difficult life with travails of his own making. This is part two of his story.
