Show Notes

When we released our most recent Big Mix-Up episode (#3 in the series so far!), a lot of listeners had the same question: who was the girl with the huge voice? It's not unreasonable to ask. The owner of that voice, soul/R&B/hip-hop/gospel powerhouse Jill Alexander, is a relative newcomer to the local music scene, which she's hoping to take over by storm. We sat down with Jill to talk about her musical background, the new releases she has in the works with Thunder Bay-based BME Studios Canada, the use of her music to reach out to people suffering from PTSD, and much more.

In memoriam: John B. Duff

(This episode was originally released in August 2015) I’ll be the first to admit I’m not very hip to the local comedy scene, but way back in 2015, [we did an episode](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr141-oddblock-comedy-festival-354033ed1f98a2L/) about the then-new Oddblock Comedy Festival. One of the guests on that episode was comedian John B. Duff. You may have heard that John passed away from cancer recently, so I’m re-releasing this episode. I barely knew him, but he was a really funny guy, and – based on all the tributes I’ve been seeing on social media over the past few days – clearly a huge figure in the local community. Please note this is in the old format of the show, and the audio quality is godawful, but I think it’s important to re-release episodes when guests pass (which is happening entirely too often lately). I hope you enjoy this episode despite its (many) technical flaws. Fuck cancer. RIP Mr. Duff. ...
