A lot of great musicians seem to have been born in 1969, and a couple of our all-time favourites on the show turned 50 within a day of each other last week, so a happy 50th tribute to Shannon Lyon & Jim Bryson today, as well as some great new music, German requests, and more!
It's another busy concert week in Winnipeg, but without a doubt, the two biggest highlights are the long-awaited album release show for the new Leaf Rapids album Citizen Alien and the even longer-awaited reunion of legendary Winnipeg band Acoustically Inclined! Keri & Devin Latimer stopped by to chat about the Leaf Rapids show and Kerry Krishna & Mira Black stopped by for a conversation and some live music getting us even more excited about their show on Saturday!
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!
