In early 1989 Andy Gronberg (aka Andy Grotesque) got a taste for radio when he visited CJIV (now called CJSF) in Burnaby at Simon Fraser University. His first show aired from 2:00 AM – 6:00 AM Saturday mornings in February of that year playing a wide variety of music from punk rock, heavy metal, indie rock, blues and everything in between. Eventually it moved to Saturday nights from 10:00 – Midnight. That show ran until mid 1994 and had several different names including “Grotesque Noise Error”, “The What Noise? Show” and the final name that stuck the longest: “Club Grotesque”.
In late 2001 he got involved with CiTR at U.B.C. with a good friend and they started a punk show called “Generation Annihilation”. Then in 2007 he also became one of the hosts on Powerchord, the longest running heavy metal radio show in Canada.
Andy now hangs his hat at CIVL hosting Andy’s Attic every Saturday night from 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM. The first hour features a mix of music from old time, country, folk, bluegrass, blues and whatever else comes to mind. The second hour is an insane mix of punk rock and heavy metal, -listener discretion always advised.
Join Andy with guest co-hosts including his son Kai who comes up on a fairly regular basis to add some interesting and occasionally strange banter to the program. Every Friday night on CIVL!
