Episode #698

Today a journey to the iconic city of New York, New York! There are so many songs about The Big Apple that we could spend a whole day and not get through half of them, but we’ll do our best to pull out some of the gems and tour around the city in song!

Episode #697

July 2, 2001, marked the beginning of my hosting career at UMFM when I hosted my very first show, which was a Canada Day special. Since then, Canadian music has always been the backbone of my shows, but it’s always nice to focus exclusively on Canadian music once in a while, especially around Canada Day. So here’s (almost) 2 hours of great Canadian music, as we take a musical road trip with stops in every province and territory!

Episode #695

Today we’ve got a pile of new music, as well as memories of amazing concerts past, including last night’s Corin Raymond show and last weekend’s incredible Static Roots Festival. Lastly we pay a brief tribute to the late, great Paul MacLeod, who left us far too soon, one year ago today; he will not be forgotten.

Episode #694

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!
