Episode 89: The Manitoba Social Song Tournament

If you’re from Manitoba, you all know what a social is. If you don’t know, we explain it on this show. Then, we set up another tournament to determine everyone’s favourite Manitoba social song! Our pal @DJ_Biff_WPG joins us to pick songs and discuss. Ryan has played his fair share of socials, so we got some insights on how to make the night a memorable one on the dance floor. And if you check our Twitter over the course of the week, you can vote for your choices in one of our many matchups. SO MUCH FUN THIS WEEK!

Episode 80: Rap Traxx

We kind of phoned it in for this one. Connection issues and a lack of planning resulting in what you’ll hear this week, but we did get a nice conversation in about a series of rap compilations that were released in the late 80’s and early 90’s: RAP TRAXX ONE THROUGH FIVE! Come and hear the discussion about the albums and the music on them now!
