Acclaimed local graphic novelist GMB Chomichuk is back on the show for the first time in almost a decade!

Stay tuned for a conversation about comics, creating, his desire to collaborate with the local music community, the way the word “Witchpolice” has haunted him for years, and much more.

It’s a fun one, and local musicians are going to want to hear about his ideas for collaboration.

WR702: Ben Lowe

Winnipeg’s Ben Lowe is the new face behind the bass for acclaimed Canadian blues/rock/reggae staples Big Sugar, but it’s in his blood — he’s the son of late Big Sugar bassist (and reggae icon) Garry Lowe.We talked about carrying on his dad’s legacy, finding time to play music with his own trio here in Winnipeg, and much more. As regular listeners know, I like to include songs by the interviewee in each episode, but Ben said he wasn't sure he had any of his own material he was ready to share (yet)... "so why not use some Big Sugar?"...so I found a pandemic cut of "If I Had My Way," featuring a whole bunch of Canadian celebrities (and Ben handling some of the vocals/acoustic guitar), so that's in here... and I took the opportunity to force some tracks from Big Sugar's 20+ year old 'Alkaline' dub project on you. Ben's obviously not playing on these (but his dad is), and I remain -- to this day -- shocked that 'Alkaline' isn't more wildly known. It rules. It's still my favourite Big Sugar-related project to date, although we'll see what the new lineup has in store for the future.

WR027: Greg Milka Crowe

I've been a fan of Greg Milka Crowe's music since way back in the 1990s when he was the frontman of Winnipeg ska legends Whole Lotta Milka, so we were really excited to have him on the podcast -- especially since he did a live performance at the end of the show. Greg's currently a member of The Scarlet Union, but he's been involved in a ton of other local ska bands, including The Wedgewoods and The Racketeers (briefly). He's also worked as a producer and co-wrote a ska musical that actually hit the stage here in Winnipeg. We talk about that, about meeting Jamaican legends, about the early days of Stomp Records, and more. ...
