Show Notes

 
Fred Warner, bassist and bandleader of jazz fusion outfit Freddy and the Fire Nation, is back on the show after first appearing on a Quick Hits episode last year.

We talked about the band’s upcoming releases, about focusing on a slick, produced sound versus “that greasy goodness”, playing shows, and much more.
 
Just a heads-up that there were some technical difficulties on this one (as heard in the intro), but it's still a fun listen. Also, since the Fire Nation's full-band recordings have yet to be released, the songs you'll hear on this podcast are Fred's solo demos.

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works! Watch for that!

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. ...

WR475: Len Bowen

...so this isn't your regular podcast episode. It's actually an interview I did the other day on Instagram live with Winnipeg rap legend [Len Bowen](http://www.instagram.com/lenbowen_music/). Because I record everything, of course I recorded this too, and here it is in podcast form. It was an interesting experiment and a fun conversation with one of Winnipeg’s finest about his upcoming new project, his work with local hip-hop icons [Shadez](http://soundcloud.com/lenbowenmusic/shadez-ov-blac-comprehension-xx-anniversary-edition-mixed-by-dj-swift), and a whole lot more. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), and by [Trevor Fisher](http://www.linkedin.com/in/fishertrevor) of Way2Wealth Management.
