Show Notes

When I transferred the huge Witchpolice archive over to the current hosting site, about 50 episodes from 2013-14 got missed. Although they’ve always been available, buried on the old Witchpolice site, they’ve never been formally discoverable on podcast platforms like Spotify or Apple Podcasts. So here's another archival episode, originally released as #71, featuring Jesse Matthewson of Winnipeg noise rockers [KEN mode](http://www.ken-mode.com/). The interview took place shortly before they hit the studio to record their *Success* LP. NOTE: In the intro I say this was 2015 (and on the cover image), but upon further research, it was actually from 2014. Oops. At the time this episode originally came out, Witchpolice Radio had a very different format. We (I wasn’t the only host!) weren’t only interviewing local musicians, but were asking them to select songs from their own record collections based on randomly-generated theme words. Due to the sketchy legality of broadcasting other people’s songs without permission, the selections are edited out of this episode, but it’s still a great conversation, and was one of my favourites of the early years of the podcast. KEN mode is definitely a band I'd love to get back on the podcast, especially in the current interview-specific format, so I'll have to work on making that happen again soon. Enjoy. This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), as well as the [Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/), managed by Winnipeg punk mainstay StevO Nelson.
