Show Notes

The fellas and I took a break from Witchpolice Radio over the holidays, so our loyal listeners (all 10 of them) had to go without the dulcet tones of our voices for two whole weeks. I imagine the withdrawal must have been terrible. Anyway, we return with episode 7, themed around fire. If it sounds like we're just getting these themes from a random word generator... well, we kind of are. As usual on the show, we all pick songs that are loosely based on the one-word theme, and this week turned out to be a pretty awesome selection. We did get a little sidetracked by a series of long rants about neck tattoos, mind you.

WR042: Yy / Nestor Wynrush

After the success of our special Wu-Tang episode, Witchpolice Radio is straying from the usual random-theme format again this week. For episode #42, Rob Crooks pulls a solo-host job alongside guests Elliott (Nestor Wynrush) Walsh -- threepeating here as the guest with the most appearances -- and fellow Winnipeg rap artist Yy. This time, the focus is on Winnipeg's Gruf the Druid, a mainstay of the local hip-hop scene dating back to the 1990s, and someone the host and both guests know and have worked with on a personal level. They're all big fans of his music, though, and that's what makes this such a great episode. If you're a nerd about Winnipeg rap, or Canadian underground rap in general, there's a lot for you to take in here. Whether you first heard Gruf's music on a Frek Sho album, or on the Fermented Reptile CD, or as a member of Sound Barriers, or never at all... you'll dig this. ...

It's a conversation with Violet Vopni, singer/songwriter of [Nineteen](http://nineteenmusic.bandcamp.com/releases) – a folk/jazz/pop duo that is only a few months in the making, but with songs going back decades, just waiting to be performed. We talked about the duo’s upcoming record, vulnerability in songwriting, unexpected recognition, swearing in jazz, and much more.

WR418: Del Barber

Prairie singer-songwriter [Del Barber](http://delbarber.com/) is about to release a fantastic new album, [Easy Keeper](http://delbarber.com/album/1069833/easy-keeper), which is the culmination of a rollercoaster few years that saw him forced to kickstart his career from scratch after a decade of building it up. We talk about his descriptive, sincere storytelling, his new perspective on the music business, finding peace with his place in the world, and much, much more. This is only Del's [second appearance](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/wr300-del-barber-36693d03625dca/) on the podcast, but he's already one of my favourite guests in the podcast's long history.
