Show Notes

You might know singer-songwriter [Roger's Arsenal](http://rogersarsenal.bandcamp.com) for his roles in a number of Winnipeg bands over the years, or for his heart-wrenching solo material, but he’s spent the last little while working on something new – his first book. "[Bear's Necessities](http://www.instagram.com/bearsnecessitiesbook/)" –written by "Roger Arsenal" – comes out on Halloween, and we talked about self-publishing, transitioning from a songwriter to a novelist, and much more! Please note the last few minutes of the interview got cut off because the memory card was full, so I threw one of Roger's songs up there at the end instead. Also, I realized after the fact that I repeat myself ("fun conversation") in the intro. Sorry. This episode brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/)!

WR243: Screaming at Traffic

Arising like a phoenix (or whatever stupid analogy you want to use) from the ashes of Greek Riots comes [Screaming at Traffic](https://www.facebook.com/pg/screamingattrafficmusic), a punk band with a unique take on the style. We sat down (outside, in Wolseley) with Paul (bass) and Duncan (one of S.A.T.'s two frontmen/guitarists) to talk about their [new EP](https://screamingattrafficmusic.bandcamp.com/album/s-a-t), their place in the Winnipeg music scene, and a whole bunch of crazy tangents. Click, click. ...

Singer-songwriter [Harley James Flett](http://harleyjamesflett.bandcamp.com/releases) may have packed up and moved to Toronto, but he maintains his Winnipeg DIY sensibilities. Best known as a folk-punk artist, he's working on new material for a November release that leans more toward alt-country territory. We talk hockey (a lot), starting fresh in a new city, an entire album of songs Harley scrapped and has never released, and much more. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
