Show Notes

If you've paid attention to the local music scene at any point over the past decade-plus, you likely have a number of albums from Winnipeg's Transistor 66 Record Company in your collection.

WR141: Oddblock Comedy Festival

This week, Sam and Ryan are joined by comedians **[John B. Duff](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/john-b-duff/)** and **[Chantel Marostica](http://oddblock.ca/speaker/chantel-marostica/)** , along with **Erick Casselman** (owner of the Park Theatre), to talk about the upcoming **[Oddblock Comedy Festival](http://oddblock.ca/)** , Aug. 27-30 in Winnipeg's South Osborne neighbourhood.
