Show Notes

It's a conversation about music and politics with singer-songwriter turned electoral candidate [Adrien Sala](http://www.mbndp.ca/adriensala), NDP Candidate for St. James, who is running for the MLA gig in my neck of the woods. We talk about his transition from the Times Change(d) scene to the campaign trail, the changing demographics of Manitoba politics, Winnipeg’s obsession with roots music and a lot more. The episode features some excellent songs from the two albums by Adrien's old roots group [Jackpine](http://uniter.ca/view/adapting-to-a-new-climate). Sept. 10 is Election Day in Manitoba. Go out and vote, whichever party or candidate you support!

WR407: Slattern (From The Archives)

When I transferred the huge Witchpolice archive over to the current hosting site, about 50 episodes from 2013-2014 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. I [recently asked listeners](http://www.facebook.com/WitchpoliceRadio/posts/2248282975270760) which of these lost episode(s) they'd like to hear re-released, this one – with Julia Ryckman, a/k/a [Slattern](http://www.juliaryckmanslattern.com/) – was easily the most-requested. At the time this episode (WR084) originally came out in July 2014, 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. This episode is brought to you by Osborne Village’s new pop-up record store, [Old Gold Vintage Vinyl](http://www.instagram.com/oldgoldvintagevinyl204/), and by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). ...
