  • Album Authority

    Hel­lo and Wel­come to Album Author­i­ty, the show where I, The Album Author­i­ty tell you which albums you’re allowed to enjoy and what to think of them. Each week I go through an album of any genre and give my thoughts on it, some infor­ma­tion and seem­ing­ly unim­por­tant and strange per­son­al anec­dotes. Tune in every Tues­day at 2 – 3 pm for the

    Fore­most expert’s author­i­ty on music” — Coop­er Beaudette

  • Expansive Prairie Skies

    Expan­sive Prairie Skies draws inspi­ra­tion from the wide open vis­tas that sur­round Win­nipeg.
    It’s the oppo­site of feel­ing hemmed in.
    It’s the sound­track to a late night dri­ve beneath a boun­ty of con­stel­la­tions.
    Con­tem­po­rary clas­si­cal and actu­al clas­si­cal.
    Avant-garde and musique con­crete.
    Noise and ambi­ent music.
    Jazz and more jazz.
    The host pro­vides the son­ic stratos­phere,
    the music does the talk­ing, you do the dreaming.

  • Juke In The Back

    Matt The Cat presents the soul that came before rock n’ roll: 1950s rhythm and blues. Each week, this under­rat­ed and rol­lick­ing music plays on that old Rock­o­la Juke­box in the back.

    If you want­ed to hear rhythm & blues dur­ing the 1950s, you couldn’t get it from the juke box in the front. No, no! In order to hear that glo­ri­ous, down and dirty R&B, you had to go to the low-lit, spit-shined Juke In The Back.” These songs are the build­ing blocks of rock n’ roll. These are the records that inspired Elvis and sin­gle-hand­ed­ly led to the rock n’ roll explo­sion of the mid-1950s.
