PODCAST NOW AVAILABLE !
Tonight on West End Dumplings - The Radio Edition, something a little different for Pledge-o-Rama !
UMFM has had two incarnations, from 1975 to 1980 and 1988 to present. My guests will be John Robertson (station manager 1975 -1976), Chris Epp (news director 1998 - 1999), Sara Stasiuk (program director 1998 - 1999), Jared McKetiak (current station manager) and hopefully a few pop-ins !
I will, of course, talk about Pledge-o-Rama, the great schwag that's on offer, and my Winnipeg Historic Hotels Pub Crawl. If you would like to donate to UMFM through the show you can do it by following this link or call in during the show - operators will be standing by ! No donation is too small !
