Today we’re around the world – musically and physically – as I’m off at the Static Roots Festival in Germany, so a celebration of that great land in song, as well as a tip of the hat to my Scottish pal Iain who’s coming to the festival as well. We also look back at last year’s festival before letting you know about some amazing shows coming up in Winnipeg next weekend!
A bit of a rambling episode with some fun tangents, and a chat with one of our longest serving listeners and most steadfast supporters, Dietmar Leibecke about his amazing upcoming Static Roots Festival!
Steel Belted Radio’s last hoorah! We kicked things off on September 11, 2003, and with the help of some great co-hosts and amazing guests, we managed to keep rolling until June 1, 2017. It was a hell of a lot of fun. On this, the last episode, the longest-serving co-hosts, T-Bar & KK made a surprise appearance, and just like the old days, we played some new music, classics from back-in-the-day, some out there T-Bar picks, and heard a pile of T-Bar’s jokes. Thanks to everyone who tuned in to this episode or any of the 650 or so that came before it. We were blessed to have some amazing support and encouragement over the years. We wish Skippy all the best as he takes over and makes Thursdays his own.
Today some new music, tributes, exciting concerts past & future, and more!
We start off with a carry-over from Romi’s Layla tribute and some new music, before venturing to Germany for a look at the amazing Static Roots Festival, and then we bring it back home for some made in Manitoba music, exciting upcoming shows, and a visit with Blue Rodeo’s inner circle!
