The Radio Edition for July 5, 2015

The podcast for this episode is now available here !


My guest will be Gerald Huhtala of the Manitoba Association of Automobile Clubs. We'll talk about some of the car shows and related events that are coming up around the province this summer, including the big Collector Car Appreciation Day in Winnipeg on July 12th. Also, more about those yellow "Collector" plates you see on classic cars and maybe even get his opinion on Portage Avenue "cruise nights."


I'll highlight a few other events coming up in the days ahead, including the premiere of Stuck in the Middle - the documentary on July 7th, Winnipeg Architecture Foundation's July walking tours, Minnedosa's Heritage Day and the 61st annual Thresherman's Reunion in Austin.

Also, we'll look ahead to some events that will be commemorated this in Manitoba History. This includes the deaths of West Ender Bill Norrie and hockey great Billy Mosienko*, the huge "Get Together '70" Festival in downtown Winnipeg and Gordon Pinsent's Winnipeg years. (*Check out a video of Mosienko's record-breaking hat trick here.)

Music by The Platters, Mike Post and The Kubasonics. A commentary by Roger Currie and some classic comedy from Bob Newhart.
