Show Notes

As many of you know, I lost my voice recently, so I couldn't record as many interviews this week as I usually would. In order to not miss an episode, I decided to re-release 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 #83, featuring Joel "Beefdonut" Klaverkamp as our guest. It was selected based on your social media votes. 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 week, Sam and Rob hang out with longtime stalwart of the Winnipeg music scene, Joel Klaverkamp. In addition to 20+ years of work under the name Beefdonut (including an excellent new album), Joel has played with very recognizable names in the city's musical history, including The Hummers, Skingerbreadman ...and the legendary (only to us) band that convinced us DIY music was possible way back in the 90s, Alien Hybrid!

Jon was away for this episode, so we couldn't use our regular studio spot in his basement. This one was recorded in a spot Joel had access to "high above Winnipeg's historic Exchange District," so if you notice an inferior sound quality throughout, it's because we're not on home ice for this one.

Back to your regularly-scheduled content in a few days! Thanks, y'all!

WR377: The Rainy Day Apparel

We go live and direct to the teeming metropolis of Carman, Man., to talk to indie-folk singer-songwriter Nathan Strange, a/k/a [The Rainy Day Apparel](https://soundcloud.com/therainydayapparel). It's a fun (remote) conversation about his personal, storytelling songwriting style, about juggling music with a family and a career as a teacher, as well as being an outside to the Winnipeg music scene, but still finding ways to break through. (...and yes, I did say "quietly making noise" in the intro. Shut up. It made sense in my head.) This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)!

WR435: Clash Contrast

Local electronic artist [Clash Contrast](http://clashcontrast.bandcamp.com) has been on the scene since 2007, and her pursuit of electronica has taken her across the country and into some unexpected locations (like recording an album at the library!) We talk about her influences in trip-hop, drum n' bass, jungle, chillwave, electro-pop and more, and I fill in some much-needed gaps in my (admittedly lacking) knowledge of the electronic community. Unfortunately (my bad), a chunk of this conversation was lost because I didn't check how much space was left on my memory card, but the bulk of the interview is there, and I think it's a good one. This episode brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://hwww.myparktheatre.com/)! ...

WR538: Erick Casselman

Here's a very interesting chat with [Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/) owner Erick Casselman about the venue’s challenges due to the pandemic, the importance of live music to Winnipeg and what a return to “normal” could look like, and much more. The Park has been one of Winnipeg’s cultural institutions for the past 15 years, and I’m sure all of you agree when I say I can’t wait to see a full schedule of shows happening there again — hopefully sooner rather than later. You can support the venue during this down period by buying some of their[ awesome new merch](http://www.myparktheatre.com/merch/)! This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/) and [Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/), [Devine Shirt Company](http://devineshirtcompany.ca/), and [the Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/)!
