Here's my conversation with Brad Skibinsky from Winnipeg’s heavy vinyl distro Eye and Ear Control Records!
It's a great chat about serving a niche community of discerning metal fans, opening a small physical HQ in the Exchange, working with local artists like Propagandhi (he just restocked the Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes remix/remaster), and so much more!

Winnipeg indie-pop duo Bicycle Face not only have a phenomenal band name (and logo, holy shit), but they have a fantastically unique keyboard-and-guitar sound. They hang out on this week's episode to talk about the group's background, select "queen" songs and perform a few live ditties (so stay tuned until the end)! ...
[Country Steve](http://www.facebook.com/CountrySteveMusic/) is alive and well and living in Garson! This episode was recorded at Steve's rural Manitoba house on New Year's Eve, and it's an interesting catch-up for people who may not have heard his name(s) over the past few years. Steve is a singer-songwriter with a deep love for country music, and although he rarely plays shows and keeps a fairly low profile, he's always writing new songs – a few of which he plays on the podcast!
