  • Backbeat

    Hip Hop/Groove, Soul, Jazz, Pop/Rock, Eclectic, Roots, Bluegrass, Blues, World

    Backbeat is a one-hour radio show featuring vintage popular music. It’s not about nostalgia. It’s a fun and lively exploration of our shared music history with an emphasis on artists and records that have been underrated, forgotten or just ignored over the years.

    We also play new music from artists who understand and honour that history

  • Dollar Country

    Roots, Bluegrass, Blues, Country and Western, Nostalgia

    Dollar Country is a radio show hosted by WTFC radio. It primarily features country 45’s that I find in dollar bins around the country. Featuring everything from old hits to b-sides, common records to rarities, and everything between the most popular artists and private press junk. I try to play things that I find good, interesting, or at least amusing, and I hope you like the show too.

  • The Ivory Tower

    Jazz, Roots, Bluegrass, World

    The Ivory Tower broadcasts jazz, world music and traditional folk from the dizzying heights of the fourth-and-a-half floor of the University of Winnipeg. Legendary entertainment impresario Kelly Hughes has been called “staccato and laconic” (poet Méira Cook), “so funny I peed myself” (CBC’s Shelagh Rogers), “off-putting, rude and tasteless”, and “kingpin to mavericks and musicians.” The Ivory Tower is 90 minutes fortified with the best music you haven’t heard, anecdotes, lies, recipes, and sparkling conversation with one of said mavericks/musicians, each and every week.

    I guess you could say my show is my own personal search – through music – in the middle of the night every Monday. So join me and I’ll bring you an out-of-the-ordinary mix of blues, soul, rock, funk, Americana, bluegrass and whatever else it takes to shake the work blues.
