Show Notes

[Nigel Webber](http://www.instagram.com/makingplansfornigel/) is a local writer and the author of the upcoming book [Gritty City](http://www.instagram.com/grittycitywpg/), an oral history of Winnipeg hip-hop. We talked about the ambitious project, the wide range of artists he has interviewed already, some of the long-lost Winnipeg rap records he has yet to hear, and more! Get a taste of Nigel’s project in this month's Stylus Magazine, which includes his hard-to-argue-with [list of Winnipeg’s top 100 rap songs](http://ckuw.ca/stylus/2020/10/06/winnipeg-state-of-mind-top-100-winnipeg-hip-hop-songs/). This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/), whose outstanding new album, Introducing the Ghost, is out now from [Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/)!

WR050: Sam Koulack / Doug Feaver

A milestone! We've hit 50 episodes! To celebrate the occasion, we've put together an unintentionally slapdash episode that ended up being really, really solid. Due to a last-minute scheduling conflict with our anticipated guest (who will be on a later show, so stay tuned), we turned to past guest Sam Koulack of the Wet Bananas, who also happens to be co-host Jon's roommate. Sam was, thankfully, available, so he took on the job without any advance preparation for the "pyramid" theme this week. If that wasn't enough, we also tried out a major new initiative this week and had a guest on the show from all the way in Montreal: Doug Feaver of Corona Ferox and Dead Future. Doug called in to the show and talked about his recent touring, recording etc., and the ability to talk to non-Winnipeg guests (very clearly and in high quality, too) opens up a lot of doors for the next 50 episodes of this show. ...
