The Radio Edition for March 1, 2015: Winnipeg hockey legends !

Sawchuk (LIFE), Elizabeth II (U of M Library and Archives)

Join Kerri and me Sunday night at 7 p.m. on 101.5 UMFM for a freshly squeezed edition of West End Dumplings - The Radio Edition as we explore a couple of very different Winnipeg hockey legends.

Composer/ producer/ director Danny Schur drops by to discuss his latest project, a bio-documentary about hockey great Terry Sawchuk. We'll also get an update on the status of the movie version of Strike! The Musical.

We'll hear from Anya Wilson, who for 12 years was the custodian of the Winnipeg Arena Queen Elizabeth II portrait, and speak to Jamie Boychuk, one its new owners. Why did he do it and what are his plans for the 5-meter by 7-meter icon?!

Songs by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Strike! the Musical, Ron Hynes and Leonard Nimoy, (yes, Leonard Nimoy !).

Come back here after the show for more links, a play list and the podcast !
