November 18, 2007 – Murray Evans (Dust Poets)

Episode #236

It’s the beginning of our long, cold winter in Winnipeg as the first real snowfall arrived, so a few “snow” songs to lift our spirits.

It’s always a pleasure to welcome Murray Evans, leader of The Dust Poets who are doing a live recording at WECC this week. He called us from the snowy prairies to discuss all that’s been going on. We played some songs from that talented band as well as their fabulous opener, Dustin Bentall.

Lastly, a small set of “cat” songs for KK who lost her mind and proved that she’s a cat person by welcoming “Neko” into her home. What can I say; I’m a dog person)
