Show Notes

It's a conversation about music and politics with singer-songwriter turned electoral candidate [Adrien Sala](http://www.mbndp.ca/adriensala), NDP Candidate for St. James, who is running for the MLA gig in my neck of the woods. We talk about his transition from the Times Change(d) scene to the campaign trail, the changing demographics of Manitoba politics, Winnipeg’s obsession with roots music and a lot more. The episode features some excellent songs from the two albums by Adrien's old roots group [Jackpine](http://uniter.ca/view/adapting-to-a-new-climate). Sept. 10 is Election Day in Manitoba. Go out and vote, whichever party or candidate you support!
