WED - The Radio Edition for Dec. 15, 2013

The podcast is available here.

Join me as I take a look at some events that took place between December 15 and 28 in Manitoba’s history. Bartley Kives will join me to talk about his book Stuck in The Middle: Dissenting Views of Winnipeg. Also, there will be music by Manitoba composer Victor Davies, Smoky Tiger and the Phantom of the Paradise soundtrack.

If you're not in the holiday spirit yet, I'll also let you know about a couple of classic 1940s Christmas films that will be returning to Winnipeg's big screens before the big day.
