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! This episode is brought to you by our friends [WHY](http://whytheband.com/), [Bluebloods](http://soundcloud.com/bluebloodsmusic), [the Dirty Beat](http://www.instagram.com/thedirtybeat/), and [Jared Adams](http://tragicnostalgia.ca/). Don’t forget to help out our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/)! Buy a gift card to help them through this difficult time. Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case!

WR532: Smith's Onion

There's some time travel on this episode with Chenoa McKelvey and Jonathan Alexiuk of nostalgia-loving, jazzy, vocal harmony-heavy outfit [Smith's Onion](http:///www.manitobamusic.com/smithsonion)! It's fun chat about taking influence from hundred-year-old music and bringing it into a modern context, and a whole lot more -- just don’t make me pronounce the name. Since Smith's Onion has been primarily a live band at this point -- or, at least they were before the pandemic -- they don't have any formal recordings yet, so the songs on this episode are just lo-fi live recordings. This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/) and [Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/), [Boots & Saddle](http://ckuw.ca/programs/detail/boots-and-saddle) on CKUW, and [Devine Shirt Company](http://devineshirtcompany.ca/). Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), including latest patrons Scott Devine and Chris Friesen (who will be thanked on-air soon).

WR459: Hearing Trees

It’s been years since Graham Hnatiuk of thought-provoking indie rockers [Hearing Trees](http://www.hearingtrees.org/) was on the show, but they have an excellent new single and video (“[Bones](http://hearingtrees.bandcamp.com/track/bones)”) out now and are about to head back out on tour... so it seemed like a good time. Here's a conversation with Graham about the band’s lineup changes, making music for people who take the time to listen, getting heard in our nightmarish techno-dystopia, and much more! This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/). ..and don’t forget to check out Manitoba country singer (and past Witchpolice guest) [Brian Jacobs](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr394-brian-jacobs-377790d472f542/), [Feb. 29 at the Kenmor Theatre](http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/brian-jacobs-band-kenmor-theatre-tickets-86810846579) in Morden! ...
