It’s our last show before Canada Day, and although we celebrate great Canadian music every week on this program, a few special songs in honour of the day. We also look ahead to the return of Washboard Hank, and play a bit of a 4th of July tribute for our American friends. Most excitingly, we’ve got some very special live guests today, as Texas based singer/songwriters Mike June and Jess Klein dropped in to chat and play some of their great songs!

Steel Belted Radio - June 25, 2015 - part 1

June 25, 2015

Wasn’t that a party! A look back at last night’s amazing Mike Plume Band show, and a look ahead to the exciting upcoming Mike June & Jess Klein show! I only recently figured out that one of my favourite songwriters ever, Alex Dezen of The Damnwells is my birthday neighbour, so I have to wish him well, and give myself the gift of some great Damnwells songs. We end off with a solid set of Steel Belted classics.

It’s Father’s Day today, so a very special episode featuring fathers & our children, as I’m joined by my son Jeremy, and a special co-host, Gary Annable, who was one of the original hosts of Steel Belted Radio but hasn’t been back on UMFM in a decade; he brought his son along and we were joined by Matt Epp, who brought his infant daughter Luma with him for a chat and to play some songs from his new album.
