    Deep Threes is the week­ly radio show that brings you eclec­tic instru­men­tal sound­scapes that fuse jazz, elec­tron­i­ca, sound­tracks, mod­ern clas­si­cal, exper­i­men­tal music, and more into extend­ed mix­es. At the heart of this process is the music. The syn­er­gy of math and physics, mechan­ics and elec­tron­ics, infused with the human spir­it, ris­ing up in a riv­er of feel­ings along­side all the glis­ten­ing gems we found along the way.

  • 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.

  • Fascinatin' Rhythm

    This jazz show from 10:00 until noon every Sun­day is designed to enlight­en and pro­voke thought about the music and artists by offer­ing themes most weeks, from trib­ute to artists, to such top­ics as the evo­lu­tion of a giv­en instru­ment, to com­posers vs arrangers, artists who died pre­ma­ture­ly, to sea­son­al songs (ie. tunes about a giv­en sea­son), to jazz in the cin­e­ma, etc. Guests are always wel­come to pro­mote their music or concerts.…Rare records are uti­lized, as well as cds from Ray’s vast col­lec­tion from years of col­lect­ing. Some might say, the pro­gram is an attempt to re-vital­ize jour­nal­ism in music. I have often thought about a show about music, with­out actu­al­ly using it!
