It's a work in progress and we rely on you for feedback to help make this app great - if you have questions or comments please email us at - we want you to enjoy the same great listening experience on the go as you do when you tune into 101.5 on the FM dial!

The Bisons Are Back!
on September 1,2016 by jared

UMFM, the home of Bison Sports, welcomes Bison Football back for year 17!

Bison Sports, in conjunction with 101.5 UMFM, is pleased to announce the return of Bison Football to the radio airwaves for the 2016 season. Sadly due to some budgetary constraints, this year UMFM will only be carrying all of the home football action for Bison Football during the upcoming year.

This will be the 17th consecutive season for Bison Football on 101.5 FM. For the upcoming campaign, the radio broadcast team has Darren Bauming handing play-by-play and former Bison Matt Rollason performing colour commentary for the second consecutive season.

“We are once again excited again to see the popular return of Bison Football to the UMFM airwaves for a record 17th consecutive season,” said Jared McKetiak, UMFM Station Manager. “UMFM continues to be a proud and loyal supporter of Bison Sports and especially Bison Football and happy to provide another exciting season to all listeners locally and online.”

There is a 30 minute pre-game show for all home games.

Hosted by Cap'n Kookoo & The Banana Bros, a father and sons team, the program originates out of fellow campus/community station CFRU in Guelph but is the product of transplanted Winnipeggers and we are happy to bring them 'home' to this city's airwaves.

Hey Winnipeg, You Ready To Play?

As always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), and his team of reviewers will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!

Twenty-eight years ago, in the summer of 1988, the WINNIPEG FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL took its first bow in the Exchange District with five indoor venues, an outdoor stage and 47 performing companies. The festival has grown exponentially over the last quarter century and when the 2016 Fringe kicks off July 13th, festival-goers will have the chance to experience the diversity of more than 170 performing companies from across Canada and around the world.

Comedy, drama, music, improv, dance – there’s something for everyone at the Winnipeg Fringe. With TICKETS starting at $10, or only $5 for children, it’s inexpensive to take a chance on an unknown play or pick up tickets to the hot show. Advance tickets are on sale now at Fringe Central (MTC Box Office, 174 Market Ave., 204-942-6537). To see more theatre for less, a FREQUENT FRINGER PASS lets Fringe fans see 14 shows for $109. PROGRAMS are on sale now at Manitoba Liquor Marts, select Safeway stores, McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.

As an extra added bonus, this year's Fringe will also feature an amazing lineup of fantastic local music at the CUBE in Old Market Square, with shows running daily at noon, 8PM and 10PM!  This year's diverse lineup features the likes of the Noble Thiefs, Young Pixels, Mise En Scene, Mulligrub, Romi Mayes, Odanah, Sebastian Owl, the New Meanies, the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, Vikings, Adam Hanney & Co, dj sets by Mama Cutsworth, DJ J Jackson and more!
