The Radio Edition - Victoria Day Special !

Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. on 101.5 UMFM tune in to West End Dumplings - The Radio Edition for my Victoria Day Special ! (Did you know that Victoria Day is only in Canada, eh ?)

My guest will be Darcie von Axelstierna, Manitoba Chair of the Monarchist League of Canada. We'll find out more about the woman who reigned during Manitoba's early development. (We might even chat about the upcoming Royal visit to Winnipeg.)

Also, hear King George VI's Victoria Day speech that was broadcast to the British Empire from Government House on Kennedy Street in 1939.

I'll also look back at the life of city father A.G.B. Bannatyne, who died 125 years ago today.

- Victoria by The Kinks (1969)
