WR396: Quinton Blair

[Quinton Blair](http://www.quintonblair.com/) is an award-winning country/folk singer-songwriter, but he's also a fantastic conversationalist – something that is reflected in his personal, localized, storytelling songs. Q hung out on the porch for some live performances and a great chat about songwriting, DIY, his new songs, appealing to a variety of audiences, and much more. This episode is brought to you by [Howl at the Moon](http://howlatthemoonfest.com/), Manitoba’s newest and most exciting country music festival, July 25-27, and by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Don’t forget to support our friends at [Dub Ditch Picnic](http://dubditchpicnic.bandcamp.com/), who are trying to clear out as much stock as possible to [cover some medical costs](http://www.facebook.com/crizwell/posts/10156105481525636). ...

WR025: Allan Lorde

This week: we talk with graphic designer extraordinaire Allan Lorde about paranoia. This is probably the most rap-heavy episode we've done so far, but Al provided solid bookends at the beginning and end of the show with some filthy garage mayhem. It's a rambler of an episode, though. Right from the get-go, we start talking completely off-topic and eventually meander our way back on point. Although most of our guests are local musicians, Mr. Lorde's longtime involvement with the local scene from the visual art side of things definitely fits in with Witchpolice's unofficial "we promote cool shit cool people are doing" mode. If you live in Winnipeg, you've seen this man's art. Seriously. It's been on a pole or a bulletin board near you at one point or another. ...

WR446: KEN mode (2014) From the Archives

When I transferred the huge Witchpolice archive over to the current hosting site, about 50 episodes from 2013-14 got missed. Although they’ve always been available, buried on the old Witchpolice site, they’ve never been formally discoverable on podcast platforms like Spotify or Apple Podcasts. So here's another archival episode, originally released as #71, featuring Jesse Matthewson of Winnipeg noise rockers [KEN mode](http://www.ken-mode.com/). The interview took place shortly before they hit the studio to record their *Success* LP. NOTE: In the intro I say this was 2015 (and on the cover image), but upon further research, it was actually from 2014. Oops. At the time this episode originally came out, Witchpolice Radio had a very different format. We (I wasn’t the only host!) weren’t only interviewing local musicians, but were asking them to select songs from their own record collections based on randomly-generated theme words. Due to the sketchy legality of broadcasting other people’s songs without permission, the selections are edited out of this episode, but it’s still a great conversation, and was one of my favourites of the early years of the podcast. KEN mode is definitely a band I'd love to get back on the podcast, especially in the current interview-specific format, so I'll have to work on making that happen again soon. Enjoy. This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), as well as the [Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/), managed by Winnipeg punk mainstay StevO Nelson. ...
