This episode celebrates our home city in song, with plenty of songs about and mentioning Winnipeg, as well as some of Winnipeg's finest artists, a look at some iconic Winnipeg locations, famous faces, and much more!
This is one of those timeless "standby" episodes that you may hear on UMFM again someday, but we're betting that it's so good that you won't mind a bit!
Today we're visited by singer/songwriter/radio host Sean Burns. He hosts a great show called Boots & Saddle on Winnipeg's other great campus & community station, CKUW. That station is in the midst of their annual FunDrive, and one of this year's most exciting station incentives is a deluxe CD recording of a star-studded show that took place late last year, called A Night of Country Music. Sean came by to talk about that in hopes of drumming up some support for their station. We sat around and swapped stories and listened to great country music for the rest of the show.
Consider supporting CKUW this week (or any time, really). With a $95.90 pledge, you can get a copy of the great CD! Visit ckuw.ca/donate
