Show Notes

It's our milestone 300th episode, and who better to have as a guest than alt-country/folk singer-songwriter [Del Barber](http://delbarber.com/)? Del has easily been the most-requested guest over the past few years, by local musicians and listeners alike, and he didn't disappoint. This refreshingly candid interview goes deep on Del's record label struggles, his 2016 album of hockey songs, and his decision to go DIY with the upcoming "[Easy Keeper](http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/248696342/easy-keeper-del-barbers-new-album/description)", which recently reached its crowdfunding goal. We also talk about the sincerity of his songwriting style and much more! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to our supporters, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to [patreon.com/witchpolice](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), and for as little as $1 a month, you can help keep the lights on!

WR360: Lounge FM

Welcome to a weird experiment! This isn't a typical episode of Witchpolice Radio. For this one, we hosted a secret show, featuring a live interview and performance with local Friday night bath music quartet [Lounge FM](http://loungefm.bandcamp.com/). The whole thing played out in front of an audience of about 10 people in an intimate little room (shoutout [Giant Skellies](http://soundcloud.com/giant-skellies)!) and it was a blast. As noted in the intro, the interview portion of this episode is pretty lo-fi, but it gave us some good ideas on how to improve it if we do more secret shows in the future. The music, of course, sounds great. This epsiode was brought to you by our friends at the [SUNWOLF](http://thesunwolflabel.com/) label, who are releasing the debut by Katie & the Wolves March. 22, as well as by Winnipeg’s own [Death Cassette](http://deathcassettemusic.bandcamp.com/releases), who are performing at the Handsome Daughter on Feb. 23. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week!

WR158: Ashley Bieniarz

When we first stumbled upon the Winnipeg Music Project, there was something very recognizable about it. A blog/radio show that features interviews with local musicians? Sounds like something we might be into ...so we sat down with its creator, Ashley Bieniarz (also a musician in her own right) and compared notes about the ins and outs of interviewing local artists, discussed her reasons for starting the project, "rain songs," classical music, and a whole lot more. ...
