It’s a good news/bad news kind of day. First the good! One of the most electrifying live bands in Canada, Sunparlour Players return to Winnipeg this week after a bit of a wait, so we celebrate with some of their amazing songs and a chat with Andrew Penner, one half of this truly dynamic duo. The bad news this week, is that we had to say goodbye to the great Jesse Winchester. The man’s name wasn’t nearly well enough known, but his amazing legacy of songs and performances proves that he had a larger impact than many would even realize. A heartfelt tribute to this great songwriter, performer, and person is definitely in order.
New music! Lots of it! It's good! Listen!
Here’s the latest entry in our archive of timeless episodes that you may hear again at some point when I can’t make it in, and can’t quite find the time to record something new. It doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does, it’s nice to have a few of these on hand.
This time, we’re going with a theme, albeit a bit of a silly one – we’re playing artists in order of their alphabetical placement – going all the way from Alvin to Zeman on this A to Z episode!
Show reviews & previews aplenty, including Juno madness, Ridley Bent, Sweet Alibi, Matt Epp, and more, along with an unreleased gem from our namesake, Mike Plume!
