Show Notes

Music photographer/blogger Dwayne Larson was all over Witchpolice in 2016. Starting with an appearance on the show as a guest in the spring, he returned as part of our photography panel show at the Handsome Daughter in the fall. He wasn't only a guest, though. Dwayne conducted interviews with a number of out-of-town and touring acts (Chixdiggit, Limblifter, Safe to Say, Son of Dave) for his It's A Music Thing website throughout the year, and he was kind enough to share the audio of those interviews for use on the podcast as well . Some of those interviews, due to episodes that were more time-sensitive, etc., didn't see the light of day on Witchpolice Radio... until now. Here's a compilation of short conversations Dwayne had with members of iconic '90s punks Face to Face, Canadian psychobillies the Creepshow, and up-and-coming New Orleans hardcore band Pears. All three were in Winnipeg at various times during the latter part of the year.

In-demand Winnipeg producer [Jordan Voth](http://jnvoth.ca/) has a busy schedule working with local artists and putting his unique sonic stamp on their (mainly) punk, hardcore, emo and metal records. He's back on the show for the first time in a couple of years to talk about his huge list of 2019 releases – including projects for bands like [Waster](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/wr354-waster-370672e9cf2056/), [Screaming at Traffic](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/wr416-screaming-at-traffic-37b4e1a289a944/), [Nice Cops](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/wr335-nice-cops-36cdcc71d0a3a6/), and more – and what he's looking forward to in 2020. We also touch on Jordan's own band, Bleed American, as well as his inexplicable love for the Toronto Maple Leafs and his thoughts on the whole Mike Babcock situation (which was fresh news when we recorded the interview), as well as the social reckoning hockey seems to be having in general.

WR231: Fred Penner

I'm still excited about this one. Beloved children's entertainer (and straight-up Canadian music legend) Fred Penner was at the top of my unofficial 'dream' list of potential guests, and I finally got the chance to sit down with him. Fred is currently promoting his (excellent) 13th LP, Hear the Music, and we talked about the record, his remarkable 45+-year career, and more! Stay tuned 'til the end to hear a couple of live performances! Big thanks to UMFM 101.5 (which broadcasts this show) for giving me access to one of their studios for this episode. Unfortunately, we had a mic issue, so although Fred came through loud and clear, the audio for some of my questions had to be tweaked and/or re-recorded in the editing process. ...
