Show Notes

One of Winnipeg’s finest musical sons, [Mike Koop](http://www.youtube.com/user/deathcureseverything) (of [the Bonaduces](http://thebonaduces.bandcamp.com/), [The Leftists](http://theleftists.bandcamp.com/releases), and at least 30,000 other punk, pop, folk and gospel projects over the last few decades) is on the move. We talked about his relocation to Calgary (and his deep and undying love for Winnipeg), the myriad projects he hoped to finish before skipping town — or to complete remotely — and so much more. This one was recorded via FaceTime, due to Koop being a Luddite to the max when it comes to technology.
