Show Notes

For a decade straight, Winnipeg's Dirty Catfish Brass Band has been entertaining audiences and moving dancefloors.

I sat down with four members to talk about their upcoming record, the challenges and logistics of being an eight-piece band during the pandemic, determining their set lists for their radically different types of shows (even funerals!) and more.

WR011: Tim Haverluck

Since Rob Crooks is still in Europe, we brought in another guest host this week -- Tim Haverluck of local bands The Stabs, the Smash Brothers, the Red River Ramblers, and awesome back-in-the-day punk bands like Kirby and Gherkin. In a first for this program, Tim performed a live song at the end of the show. It was meant to illustrate a particular guitar style he was talking about, but I really like how it turned out, and I'm going to encourage all of our future guests (assuming they're muscial) to do the same. This show, somehow, also marks the first time we've ever played a local band on-air, as KEN mode's "The Hammer Party" fit the theme. And yes, Tim, that's "KEN mode," not "Keb Mo'." ...

WR048: Couch Surfin' Podcast

After last week's special UMFM Pledge-o-Rama episode, we're back to our regular programming with episode #48 (which is what it should say on the image above). This week, our guests are Terrance Williams and Devin Bray of "Winnipeg's Worst podcast," Couch Surfin'. They joined Sam and Jon to talk the "Satan" theme in a fittingly Halloween-friendly episode. It was our first time meeting these guys, and while that situation is always potentially disastrous, I think it worked out pretty well. When you have a bunch of people in a room who willingly spend most of their spare time talking shit into a microphone, it's hard to go wrong. ...
