One Of My Favourite Lyrics

“I rule the midnight air, the destroyer” ~ Metallica ‘Creeping Death’

Hi, I’m J.J. Caithcart – Different Stages Radio DJ – SCRAPE Records | SCRAPE Radio Owner / Operator from Vancouver, BC Canada.

I’m the founder of Hard Rock / Metal specialty store SCRAPE Records “The Store” from 1997 – 2016 and SCRAPE Records “The Label” from 2017 to present.

I’ve been working in the music industry for over 30 years from music retail to concert production. Some of my previous radio work include being a co-host on PowerChord on CiTR 101.9FM, show contributor/occasional co-host on The Shop 99.3FM and co-host of the The Butcher Shop (Hard Rock / Metal Show) on Save On Radio.

I’ve also had the pleasure of being a 6-time Wacken Metal Battle Canada Judge and a 4-time Juno Award Judge. 

Most recently I’ve been working as a Production Manager/Promoter Rep for  Live Nation British Columbia and as a volunteer at a Long-Term Care Home helping with Music Therapy.

I started DIFFERENT STAGES RADIO to satisfy my itch to play the music from artists/bands that I truly enjoy while concentrating on an era that is often ignored and – for the most part – are still actively putting out new albums and touring. I’ve always enjoyed turning people on to new music and this will be no different.

We’ll also be talking about and showing physical product. I hope DIFFERENT STAGES RADIO opens your eyes and ears to music that may have not been on your radar.

All shows will be archived in audio and video form. Interviews (audio and video) coming too!

All music played on DIFFERENT STAGES RADIO will be available for purchase in physical form – with exclusive links attached – from an approved DSR affiliates SCRAPE Records, CD Japan and Amazon.ca – with exclusive links attached.

Lots of future plans!

Talk to me about creating your own SCRAPE Radio show!

This is just the beginning!
