Show Notes

Here's one more throwback (the last one for a while) -- a re-release of one of the "lost" podcasts from 2014 -- an early Witchpolice recording that didn't get added to the current podcast feed.

This one was originally released as #80 in June of that year, and features an in-studio interview and performance by local garage rockers The Zags (later to become The Zorgs), as well as a special call-in guest: Neil Osborne of iconic Canadian rockers 54-40!

I hope you dig it. It's in the show's old format, so if you're new to Witchpolice Radio, you're better off listening to a 2022 episode, but if you're looking for a fun throwback, here we are. 

Here's what I said about it back in 2014:

This is a full episode! Not only do we have Winnipeg garage-punk weirdos the Zags in-studio for a live performance, but we talk to Neil Osborne —frontman of Canadian rock icons 54-40 — over the phone! 54-40 is currently crowdfunding a brand new record, so we talk to Neil about that and about the band’s 30+ year history. The Zags get animated about this week’s randomly-generated theme word (“hands”), and good times are had by all!

Back to your regularly-scheduled programming next episode!
