Show Notes

This week's guest is Nestor Wynrush (aka Elliott Walsh), a familiar face (and voice) in the local music scene. Elliott helped us -- in another four-host show -- talk about the "Paperback" theme. This episode is a little more sprawling and off-topic than usual, but it's pretty great, and is one of my personal favourites of the year so far. Get literary with Witchpolice Radio. If you're unfamiliar with Elliott's music, which he kind of downplayed on the show, you should definitely check it out, especially his excellent free live album on Marathon of Dope.

WR413: Aaron Bacon

Bassist, music teacher, and YouTuber Aaron Bacon isn't new to the podcast – he's been on Witchpolice Radio before as a member of both [Dizzy Mystics](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/35c82ec809bf42/) and [Aphelion](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/368a3bad6675d2/) – but we've never talked about this project before. [Bacon's Bass Place](http://www.facebook.com/BaconsBassPlace/) is Aaron's all-purpose online presence for teaching bass techniques, vlogging, podcasting, and a lot more. We have a conversation in the food court about the project, where it's going, how it got started, and a lot more. Stay tuned to the end of the episode to [hear an example](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMUpDt7KCnk) of one of Aaron's bass lessons! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/), who are presenting this year’s Manitoba Podcast Festival on Sept. 29!

WR440: StevO Nelson

StevO Nelson (of bands like [Clipwing](http://clipwing.bandcamp.com/) and [In2Months](http://in2months.bandcamp.com/)) is a well-known name in Winnipeg's punk scene, dating back to the '90s, but he's splitting his time these days between punk rock and becoming the city's newest beer baron. StevO has become as into the craft beer scene as he is about punk music, and he's currently running things down at [the Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/). This interview is a conversation, recorded at the store, where StevO talks about his bands' current and upcoming projects, as well as his passion for beer and why he feels as strongly as he does about the new gig slinging beer. Full disclosure: I'm not a drinker, and alcohol is not a subject I know a lot about, but Steve sold the idea to me because he sees a lot of comparisons between DIY punk rock and the burgeoning independent craft beer industry. The songs on this episodes are by some of his various bands over the years, and I even snuck an Insanely Unsound track circa 1998 in there too! Shoutout to my inexplicable and infuriating adult-onset stutter for showing up all over this episode (sorry). This episode brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/) and, of course, by the Beer Boutique, which StevO is so excited about that he paid out of his own pocket for a bunch of ads on upcoming episodes. ...
