Too many themes to fit into two hours, we super-sized the show today and took over for Bluegrass Guy who took the holiday off, pushing the show to three hours, and I still ran out of time!
First up, it would be inappropriate not to recognize Remembrance Day by playing some songs about soldiers & war, but more importantly, we played some songs about peace.
Coming up next weekend some Winnipeg all-stars pay tribute to an under-appreciated Canadian songwriter/musician legend, David Essig. Essig will be in town to play alongside The D. Rangers, Romi Mayes, and more as they launch the homegrown Essig tribute record, Beverley Street on Saturday. So, a brief lesson in all things Essig with some songs he’s played on, produced, and written.
November 12 is Neil Young’s birthday, and our friends at the High & Lonesome Club have been celebrating in style with a weeekend of amazing Neil Young music in Neilfest, and we relived some of it with our own set of Neil classics and covers.

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 (I’m a dog person, what can I say)

Here at TTBTGH, we take pride in the fact that we don’t really give a hoot about sports, but this weekend, Winnipeg is buzzing with the news that our Blue Bombers are back in the Grey Cup, and although things don’t look good, we have to do our best to cheer on the boys in Blue & Gold. Today’s show was devoted to Blue & Gold songs aimed at sending some positive vibes to our team. We’ll go back to not giving a hoot next week.
