We’re pre-recorded this week, as all good-hearted local music lovers are at the Winnipeg Folk Festival! As you may know, going to the Winnipeg Folk Festival for the first time in 1993 changed my life forever, and directly led to me hosting this show today. Over the past 18 years, I have had so many amazing experiences at the Winnipeg festival (and others across the country), and this week I take a look back at some of the music and moments that stand out most for me. I’ve seen and heard some incredible things at those festivals, and I’m very excited to share some of those with you on today’s show!

there seems to be a problem with the July 11, 2010 podcast in particular Part 1 (the url link?) as I can neither play nor download this portion of the podcast in itunes – any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. love the show – live in Vancouver and the radio sucks here so really appreciate a site dedicated so dilligently to showcasing established & emerging Canadian artists!! Vive le’ singer/songwriter…
mistakes never surprise me on this site, but the link seems to work for me… Sorry you’re having trouble, but maybe try again?
Thanks for the note and thanks for listening. I really appreciate it!
Aha! There was an error with the iTunes feed. Perhaps that’s what you meant. I think I fixed it now. Let me know any time you find my screw ups, I’m sure there are many! Thanks!
