Ride The Cyclone

Tune in to Play It Again on March 27th for your chance to win tickets!
It was a night that had life-altering consequences in Uranium, Saskatchewan on Monday, September 14, and the former Saint Cassian Chamber Choir boarded the Cyclone roller coaster at 8:17pm. At 8:18, this same roller coaster’s front axel broke, causing it to derail at the apex of the loop-de-loop, hurtling six teens to their deaths.
In the weird and wonderful musical RIDE THE CYCLONE, Karnak, a mechanical fortune-telling machine, gives the chamber choir one last chance to perform from beyond the grave. Don’t miss their final recital, where they celebrate their individuality while coming to terms with their sad fate.

RIP Jonah Nepon
on March 3,2013 by michael
It is with heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of a long-time UMFM volunteer today. Jonah Nepon, who had taken a hiatus from hosting and programming On The Air to battle cancer, lost that fight Sunday morning. Jonah's contributions to the Winnipeg music scene went far beyond his radio show though - he was a champion of emerging local acts and a strong supporter of independent touring acts alike and provided them all opportunities to play under the Ghost Town MB banner at various venues in the city. He also released a small number of 7-in. records on his own imprint. Winnipeg has lost a true champion of new sounds and a passionate, kind-hearted soul.
Funeral will be held on Monday March 4, 1:30 p.m., at the Congregation Etz Chaim 123 Matheson.
