Episode #219

First up, a tribute to the legendary Royal Albert Arms, Winnipeg's dingiest and scariest, but perhaps most important music venue. The music community was stunned recently by the announcement that The Albert is being turned into condos for hipster yuppies. Sad. Very, very sad.

Next up, a chat with a guy who has played the Albert a few times, Devin Latimer of one of Winnipeg's finest bands, Nathan. He's got a new gig now as Artistic Director of the Trout Forest Music Festival in August, and he's assembled a stellar lineup of TTBTGH faves, so we had to have him on to brag and let us know how cool this festival is going to be.

Then, a look ahead at this year's only local concert by one of Winnipeg's finest, Greg Macpherson. Also, a look back at this year's Folk Festival.

And, as if that weren't enough, some great new music!

July 8, 2007

I'm off enjoying myself at Folk Fest, and you should be too. I know how much the regulars just hate to have to choose between Folk Fest and TTBTGH, so I'll make the choice easy for you. This week we're going to take a trip back in the ttbtgh time machine and listen to an episode first broadcast way back on April 9, 2006.

At the time, I had this to say about the show:
A bit of a mixed bag as usual. Some new releases and plenty of excitement about the release of the lineup for the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

Then, a compilation of compilations, as I pulled a bunch of great compilation discs off the shelf and dug up some gems.

It's Canada Day, up Canada Way once again, and you know how much we love to celebrate great Canadian music. It's also a celebration of 6 years of hosting shows on UMFM for me (my first real hosting gig was a Canada Day celebration show on July 2, 2001). There's much going on as far as live music this weekend, including some great local acts playing, and then a special day-after-Canada-Day show featuring a great American, Hayes Carll tomorrow!
