Episode #410 Sunday, September 25, 2011

We’ve had some pretty notable guests on this show over the years, but even I was a little surprised and impressed when we landed today’s interview with the legendary James McMurtry. He’s one of the most powerful songwriters in the world, and he returns to Winnipeg next weekend for the first time in 19 years. Sadly, this means that we won’t be going to see Danny Michel, but we played a bunch of his songs to soften the blow. We’ve got a bunch of other classics to round out the show.
