Episode #231

First up, one of our favourite groups, The Wailin’ Jennys play in Winnipeg with a new member tonight, and that’s reason enough to celebrate and play some songs.

But an even better reason to celebrate, an important anniversary is right around the corner. In October of 1987, the Winnipeg music community changed forever when our beloved West End Cultural Centre opened its doors and enriched our lives. Over the past 15 years, I’ve seen some truly amazing shows under that roof (and a few real stinkers), and today’s show celebrates 20 years, a lot of great memories, and a lot of love for the WECC. And, because Bluegrass Guy was a bit late, we got to go a bit longer, so 20 extra minutes to celebrate those 20 great years!
