UMCycle Is Now Open!
on July 2,2017 by jared
The UMCycle Bike Kiosk is a full-service bike shop at the centre of the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus. We have parts and accessories for sale and do installation, adjustments and overhauls of all systems of the bike (ie: wheels, brakes, shifters, drive train, steering). The shop is accessible with a ramp leading to the automatic main door. Students get a 25% discount on all services. Be on the look out for special workshops and events coming up throughout the summer and school year!
A community stand with a variety of tools is available when the shop is open. Friday afternoons from 2:30pm – 4:30pm is community stand time where students and community members can do their own bike repair with the help of a mechanic.
Open Monday thru Friday from 10:30 until 1:30PM starting June 26th!

Our contest this year is simple - in your own words, we're asking you to paint a picture for us of your single favorite folk festival musical memory! Describe for us the best show you've seen at the festival - whether it be mainstage, small stage, workshop or solo and explain what made it stick out for you above the rest.
As mentioned above, the best story as picked by our judges will win one of two weekend passes for the festival, complete with a camping pass so that you can go make some more great musical memories this year!
Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 28th at 6PM. Tell your friends, neighbors and folks you meet on the street - this is a sweet prize!

In celebration of the many great local artists making the trek west to Calgary for Sled Island 2017, the host of hll!yh!wpg, David Dobbs sat down for a chat with 7 of them to discuss the festival, what it meant to get involved and some of the other musical acts in the great lineup that they were excited about! Some of they laid down excellent new live sessions or shared some of their music. You can check out all the episodes, put together in partnership with our friends at the BIG FUN festival, as they are posted below....

Congratulations to Station Manager Jared McKetiak
on May 5,2017 by michael
This week marks 15 years of service at UMFM for Station Manager Jared McKetiak. While he's held the lead role at the station for over a decade, he got his start volunteering as a board op for Winnipeg radio legend Howard Mandshein and other great programs in the early years of the station before moving to the Program Director position.
During his decade and a half at UMFM, Jared has been involved at a leadership level with the Winnipeg Ska & Reggae Festival, the National Campus/Community Radio Association and more recently the Big Fun Festival as well as a strong supporter of many other local music, culture and issues festivals and initiatives.
He built the Pledge-O-Rama funding drive from the ground up and made it the annual success it has been, and has been a champion for the local arts scene and a tireless supporter of the volunteers who make the great programming at UMFM.
Big congratulations to Jared on his 15 years of service, and an even bigger thank you from the rest of us at UMFM.
