The Uniter Fiver - 2015 Edition
on January 8,2015 by jared
Sometimes the most difficult thing about making music is getting people to hear it. The UNITER FIVER aims to rectify this. Now in its second year, the competition aims to put the spotlight on emerging artists and give them a chance to be written about, perform at an industry showcase and receive a little help from the music community.
Thursday January 15th at the West End Cultural Centre, the top five acts voted on by Uniter readers will perform in front of an audience and an industry panel that will award the winner with a chance to record at Collector Studio and grace the cover of the Uniter.
Tickets are only $10 at the door for your opportunity to see Somebody Language, autumn still, The Janzen Boys, Cary J. Buss and Mabel’s Flight so don’t miss out on this chance to place yourself at the cutting edge of Winnipeg’s emerging music scene.

Birds of Canada's Neighborhoods Compilation - A Call For Submissions
on January 7,2015 by michael
The next tentative Birds Of Canada compilation is all about Neighborhoods- those odd collections of houses, apartments, parks, woodsy areas, busy streets, and characteristic businesses artists call home.
The songs can be anything new or previously recorded about the places you live, previously grew up in, or have visited and admired in passing. It’s quite open to interpretation from there.
Send your submissions in .wav or .flac format to firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 30th. The compilation will be released as a free download on birdsofcanada.bandcamp.com sometime in the spring or early summer.
Happy Holidays From UMFM's Staff & Volunteers
on December 16,2014 by jared
With the holiday season now in full swing, the staff and volunteers at UMFM would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours nothing but the best tidings of the season!
Once again, we need to thank you for your support during 2014, which was historical year for UMFM that saw us execute our most successful Pledge-O-Rama to date, recording and posting some of our most amazing live sessions to date, and of course continuing to produce countless hours of quality radio programming, along the way introducing a number of new programs to our grid for your listening enjoyment.
Most importantly, 2014 also saw the successful creation of UMFM Campus Radio Inc, a new not-for-profit society that as of January 1, 2015 will hold UMFM's broadcast license, which has been renewed for another 7 years (!!!) taking us into 2021! We've been fortunate to have been given the gift of radio and we are more than happy to share it with all of you!
Starting on December 23rd at 6PM, we'll be moving into holiday programming mode, resuming normal programming once agian starting January 5th. During this time, some of your favorite shows will be doing special extended episodes, some will pre-record and some will take some well deserved time off. Our offices will also be closed for those 2 weeks, but should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via the normal channels.
Until then, enjoy some quality time with your family and friends and most importantly, be safe and kind to one another -- we can't wait to see you all in 2015! We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to share with our, our loyal friends and listeners!
Out of the basement, into the club.

High Q Productions brings you a record sale like no other. No musty smelling gatefolds, no saggy sweatpants and no kids. That's right, this 18+ event is putting the class back in the classic medium of vinyl.
It's the CENTRAL CITY RECORD SHOW!
Twenty-five carefully selected record vendors - several of whom are first-time sellers - will be bringing their freshly stocked crates to Union Sound Hall on Sunday December 7th and much of their wares will be on sale specifically for this event.
Admission is a mere $2 (you read that right) and the show will feature DJs spinning all day so you'll have a soundtrack to your crate-digging exploits. Plus, the bar in the smaller room at Union Sound Hall will be serving drinks in the afternoon so you'll have a chance to come up for air (and something stronger).
Don't miss The Central City Record Show, Sunday December 7th from 11am - 4pm at Union Sound Hall, 110 Market Street, proudly presented by 101.5 UMFM.
