Steel Belted Radio – November 4, 2010

This week on Steel Belted Radio, we’re very excited to be welcoming an amazingly talented Winnipeg supergroup, The Hatcher Briggs Band. This combo features David Briggs, as well as Don, Paul, and Jeffrey Hatcher, and together they’ve made incredible music as The Fuse, The Six, The Big Beat (and a few other names that only Stu Reid remembers.) Of course, Jeffrey Hatcher went on to form The Blue Shadows with Billy Cowsill and put out two of the most amazing country/rock records of all time. He’s without a doubt one of the finest songwriters that our city ever produced, and that’s evident on last year’s tribute CD put together by Wendy Bird, called Natural Wonder, which features, among others, Elvis Costello. Jeffrey stopped by the studio once before, and I thought that it was one of the finer chats I’ve ever had on the air.

I can’t wait to chat with these boys and hear some of the new songs that they’ve been working on and are ready to unleash at two CD release shows at The Pyramid, November 12 and 13.

DO not miss this one folks!
