Episode #922

Our team of scientists and statisticians have completed their intensive study of albums released in 2021, and we can say, officially and without hesitation, the songs and albums heard today are among the absolute best! We don't nearly have enough time in 2 hours to get to everything, but this is a pretty good look at some expected highlights, delightful discoveries, big-name faves, and downright fun!

Our first episode of 2022, so some New Year's Day songs, we talk about the nature of hope for a better year, spin some new, new to me, and new again music, take time out for the Jan. 2 Roger Miller Break, and provide our nearly-annual tribute to Hank & Townes!

Episode #920

Christmas may be officially done for another year, but there's been a lot going on the past few weeks, so we haven't heard many of our annual favourites, so today we pull out all the stops and play some of the essentials that we haven't gotten to and just can't go a year without hearing. We also ease out of the holiday season with some Christmas songs that... aren't, but you can get away with calling Christmas songs. Finally, in the tradition of holiday marathons of years gone by, we're stretching out and taking over The Love and Happiness Hour at 4 pm on UMFM and playing some of my favourite L&H H classic rock, guilt and shame-free, just for fun!

Some songs for the season today alongside some new music, some love for the local music community, and, sadly, we must pay tribute to another great songwriter gone too soon, as we listen to some of the many great songs that Cameron Latimer had a hand in.

Episode #918

It's the time of year for nostalgia, and we've got a heavy dose of that today as one of my favourite bands got back together this weekend, another let me know that it wasn't happening this year, and yet another is celebrating an important anniversary, so we revisited them all, heard some new music, threw in some token holiday music, and wrapped up with a bit of a tribute to a Monkee!

Episode #917

Sitting down to record this episode, I learned of the death of an iconic music fan in Winnipeg. We are blessed with an incredibly strong music scene in Winnipeg, but it's not just the musicians that make it magical, it's the venues and passionate fans that make it all possible. Well known among musicians, venue owners, and passionate fans, John Hak was one of the most visible and unique music lovers in town. Always down in the front row, dressed in yellow, clutching a notebook and dancing like only he could, John brought a lot of passion and spirit and touched a lot of lives. Today's show, and our dance party finale, is dedicated to him. Appropriately, there's a lot of great local music to come this week on stage and we'll preview a bunch of it. We've also got some new finds from Bandcamp Day and even a few festive favourites.
