Show Notes

Winnipeg tape label [Dub Ditch Picnic](http://dubditchpicnic.bandcamp.com/) is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Here's a conversation with bossman Chris Jacques about the everlasting appeal of tapes, collecting massive amounts of physical music (I can relate), and sticking with a passion project despite plenty of bumps along the way. Great label releasing a lot of lesser-known stuff from Winnipeg and beyond. Check ‘em out now!

WR710: Poodle Paddle

I had a great conversation with 'punk/indie/twee/screaming/who knows' duo Poodle Paddle, about finding the sweet spot between heavy and soft, playing house shows, changing their vibe (and number of band members!) from show to show, and the power of DIY.Stay tuned. Very cool new band. I dig. You will too. This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works! Watch for that!

I've been a fan of Greg Milka Crowe's music since way back in the 1990s when he was the frontman of Winnipeg ska legends Whole Lotta Milka, so we were really excited to have him on the podcast -- especially since he did a live performance at the end of the show. Greg's currently a member of The Scarlet Union, but he's been involved in a ton of other local ska bands, including The Wedgewoods and The Racketeers (briefly).
