We started off with some great new music, including some fabulous female artists before taking a trip into the country. We dug ourselves out, dusted off, and had a good old dance party to round things out.
Tonight, we play a whole show of songs in the key of Mike (Plume, that is!) Our pal Mike is celebrating his birthday today, and he's also headed to Winnipeg in June, so we've got lots to celebrate. Mike has been not only our namesake, but an amazing inspiration and a great friend of this show the entire time. Our theme song also provides a great roadmap for the type of music that we love to hear. In the song, Mike name checks some of our favourites, so tonight we listen to different versions of the song where he drops different names, and we play 'em all! A show chock full of songs that you don't hear on your normal radio; good thing we've never pretended to be normal! Check out www.mikeplume.com for lots of great content, and join us for a roots rockin' party June 24 at Times Change(d)!
Today we've got a bunch of great new music, an unplanned tribute to David Wilcox (both of them!) and we celebrate cranky Bob's 74th birthday!
I'm fresh off of my visit to the U.S. to see the Damnwells with stories to tell and a bunch of great new music picked up at the shows and the almighty Electric Fetus. Coming up it's a Skydiggers convergence, as the band plays Winnipeg on former 'digger Paul MacLeod's birthday!
It’s time to nerd out about some amazing upcoming shows! We’ll run down the Sunset Saloon summer series, and go totally overboard playing only 2 bands in the last hour of the show, but with a wealth of material between them, there’s plenty to love. In between, we’ve got a solid set of classics from folks we don’t hear often enough.
Featuring an interview with Alex Dezen of the Damnwells, recorded May 27, 2010.
The Damnwells are back and on tour, and it rolls in to St. Paul, MN this weekend. We're not going to pass up this opportunity, so T-Bar & I are heading down, and I know that other local folks will as well. In honour of that, we listen to some rockin' Damnwells classics and travel back in time to our chat with Alex from the band in 2010. We've also got a whole pile of other great roots rockin' classics, including a trip to Mississippi with Mike Plume for some snake grabbing!

It’s Mother’s Day, so we’re doing our best to keep moms happy today, especially. Moms love new music so we’ve got a bunch of that as well as some solid classics. Moms love getting concert tickets also, so we’ve also got some suggestions for last minute shopping!
A set of solid roots rock classics to start, some exciting upcoming shows to preview next, and then we round it out with some rock new music; quite a fun musical voyage this week.

Today we send some love (again) to the great BB King, who is nearing the end of his magnificent time on Earth. On a happier note, we’ve got the usual mix of great new music and exciting upcoming shows. We also join in Todd Snider’s protest movement, hoping that everyone will just “Be Cool.” Some great songs should help!
