Hello friend,

When we geared up for our first fundraising campaign, I wanted us to do something a little extra, a cool added bonus, and that's where the seeds for the idea behind this compilation were planted. CJLO 1690AM and its volunteers have always been strong supporters of the great local talent we have, and we thought this compilation would be an amazing way to pay tribute to both the music Montreal has produced and to Montreal in general. We've always had this joke at the station that anyone who's ever worked for CJLO 1690AM (a CJLOxican) is always part of the "Extended Family", a once-you're-in-you're-never-out sorta thing, and I think that's partly why the title of this comp, CJLO 1690AM's first foray into compilation fun, works so well. Named after a song by Montreal's own Doughboys, "You're Related", while being a subtle reference to this being a covers compilation, can also be taken as a reference to these bands being part of the CJLO 1690AM family.

Hi fives to all the band managers, representatives, labels for helping us get this off the ground. CJLO 1690AM-related Hi fives to our GM Steph for letting me go crazy with this, to our production team especially Lachlan for mastering the comp and Marco for helping engineer some of the recordings, to Alex for helping with the tracklist sequencing, and to Angelica for making this digital booklet look super sweet. And of course, huge hi fives to the bands who I cannot thank enough for donating their time, effort, and more importantly, their talent to this comp. Every one of these covers came out spectacularly and every band put their own distinctive spin on the original songs. Lastly, on behalf of everyone at CJLO 1690AM, who has every worked at CJLO 1690AM, and who puts in the time and effort into this little campus/community radio station that we all believe in so much, thank YOU for supporting CJLO 1690AM.

Consider yourself part of the family too, now. See you at the reunions.

-Omar (Head Music Director, Host of "Hooked on Sonics")
