  • 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.

    Hll­lYh! Winnipeg!

    Dance, mix, fusion, rock, pop, noise, beats, treats, and hang­outs, doing-your-home­work, mon­day, 630pm, radio slot.

    So sit back,

    dance around,

    draw some stuff,

    read this book,

    crush on that girl or boy, they’re prob­a­bly not who you think they are,

    go for a walk, decide to talk, 

    you’re dri­ving around, smok­ing those sticks,

    give some time to rethink those bricks

    and have a fun thought in the mid­dle the continent.


    Cheers!
