Show Notes

This week's episode features a couple of out-of-town guests, former Winnipeggers Goldwyn Millar and James Requeima. While they're now in Ontario and Quebec, respectively, doing math-related work (hence the theme of "mathematics"), these fellas started out back in the late 1990s as members of Grandpa's Army (with Witchpolice Radio co-host Sam and a million other people), and Goldwyn went on to play in The Mouth-Boat (with Sam and co-host Jon) and Shoshaku Jushaku (with Jon, but co-hosts Sam and Rob appear on the record).

...so, as usual, everything is very interconnected.

WR052: RasTamils

It’s a reggae-heavy episode this week as Rastamils frontman Franklin Fernando joins us to talk about the “empire” theme. Franklin, originally from Sri Lanka, has rejuvenated Winnipeg’s reggae scene with his group’s mashup of Caribbean and South Asian sounds. We’re also joined by Rastamils bassist Christian Devoin, who has a history in the local reggae scene dating back to the early 1990s, via phone. This episode includes a ticket giveaway to see Rastamils in concert in January for a live audio/video recording, so stay tuned to see how you can get your hands on those. Listen to the end of the episode to hear a live performance by Franklin. ...
