Show Notes

Really great conversation with synthesizer enthusiast [Grant Partridge](http://twitter.com/bluetshirt), all about a topic that has admittedly been a blind spot for me. Grant — known for his solo work as [Blue T-Shirt](http://bluetshirt.ca/) as well as his roles in various local bands — talked about the local synth community and the [Voltage and Main](http://voltageandmain.com/) group, schooled me on some basics about the hobby, and showed me a really cool tool he developed that let me manipulate his synthesizers from the comfort of my own home! Songs on this episode; Hoja (excerpt) - Blue T-Shirt, Umlaut- Blue T-Shirt, Untitled Modular Study - Grant Partridge, A Little Bit of Wheels in All of Us - The Eardrums.

WR390: Michael Falk

Michael Falk is the artistic director at [Jazz Winnipeg](http://www.jazzwinnipeg.com/), as well as the man behind [Head in the Sand Records](http://headinthesand.ca/) and the former frontman of [Les Jupes](http://lesjupes.bandcamp.com/)... among many other roles in the Winnipeg music scene. We talk about all of that, this year's Jazz Fest lineup, and much more on this episode. Full disclosure: I do [freelance work for Jazz Winnipeg](http://www.jazzwinnipeg.com/blog/2019/2/23/welcome-to-alleyways), although I don't think it affects this podcast in any conflict-of-interest-y way. I would've wanted to have Mike on the show regardless. Also: I tried out the new recording gear for this episode (thank you everyone). As you can hear, I have a bit more practicing to do. Mike came through great, but I sound a bit distant. I figure with every episode I do, I'll get more an more familiar with the recorder and things will start to sound better and better. This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! Don't forget to support our friends at [Dub Ditch Picnic](http://dubditchpicnic.bandcamp.com), who are [trying to clear out as much stock as possible](http://www.facebook.com/crizwell/posts/10156105481525636) to cover some medical costs. ...
