1:02 of Club 102 Live From The Phoenix w/ Martin Streek

Club 102Last night, after our ball game, the Mikes and I got talking about the Phoenix. The Phoenix, for you out-of-towners, is a club at 410 Sherbourne Street that I used to frequent in the mid-90s. I was there for the moshing anthems but you never knew who you'd bump into.

We were talking about the Phoenix Concert Theatre because we were talking about Club 102, a live-to-air event heard on 102.1 every Saturday night for as long as I can remember. Club 102 was hosted by Chris Sheppard, and when Shep left, Martin Streek took over.

Club 102 was fun, because it was great tune after great tune. Streek was the perfect host, full of energy and passion with a fantastic voice. There's a Facebook group in memory of Streek, and that's where I found an hour and two minutes of Club 102 recorded live from the Phoenix and hosted by Martin Streek. It was shared by Trevor Castle.

I'm embedding the audio below, but I'm not sure how much time we'll have before my free bandwidth allotment gets blown out. I recommend downloading the MP3 by clicking here.

The doors of the Phoenix.... are... now... OPEN!

Thank you for posting this.

Speaking of the Phoenix, I work there. The Phoenix/Liberty Entertainment is having a tribute for Martin this coming Saturday, July 18.

If anyone has any pictures they want in the memorial video. Please email them to marketing@libertygroup.com

We miss him, we love him and anyone can e-mail me for the guest list if they want to go.

R.I.P. Martin, I'm still having trouble with wrapping my head around the fact he's gone.

Thanks for the audio. Kind of eery to hear again. What a shame he's gone.

Club 102 sounds so shallow now. This clip is great. You can hear the passion in his voice.

This is so sad.

That was me. I have no idea why I recorded that night, but I did so on a 60min tape. Wanted to get the "best" part of teh night. I'm guessing it's around 1230-130am (since you hear the first call for last call) and that 1200-2am part was all the time of the big choons

I just found this now and I'm so grateful it exists. Crazy thing is, this recording is from the day before Lollapalooza '95. That was the very first concert I ever went to, as a twelve-year old with my older sisters. I can guarantee I was awake in bed listening to this very radio show (as every weekend), excited like crazy for the next day at Molson Park. So much nostalgia. Thanks.
