Hey Winnipeg, You Ready To Play?
on July 12,2016 by jared

As always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), and his team of reviewers will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!

Twenty-eight years ago, in the summer of 1988, the WINNIPEG FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL took its first bow in the Exchange District with five indoor venues, an outdoor stage and 47 performing companies. The festival has grown exponentially over the last quarter century and when the 2016 Fringe kicks off July 13th, festival-goers will have the chance to experience the diversity of more than 170 performing companies from across Canada and around the world.

Comedy, drama, music, improv, dance – there’s something for everyone at the Winnipeg Fringe. With TICKETS starting at $10, or only $5 for children, it’s inexpensive to take a chance on an unknown play or pick up tickets to the hot show. Advance tickets are on sale now at Fringe Central (MTC Box Office, 174 Market Ave., 204-942-6537). To see more theatre for less, a FREQUENT FRINGER PASS lets Fringe fans see 14 shows for $109. PROGRAMS are on sale now at Manitoba Liquor Marts, select Safeway stores, McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.

As an extra added bonus, this year's Fringe will also feature an amazing lineup of fantastic local music at the CUBE in Old Market Square, with shows running daily at noon, 8PM and 10PM!  This year's diverse lineup features the likes of the Noble Thiefs, Young Pixels, Mise En Scene, Mulligrub, Romi Mayes, Odanah, Sebastian Owl, the New Meanies, the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, Vikings, Adam Hanney & Co, dj sets by Mama Cutsworth, DJ J Jackson and more! Guaranteed, there's no better place to spend these hot summer nights, kicking back and enjoying a beverage or two with your friends!

For more information on the 2016 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, including Outdoor Stage and Kids Fringe schedules, please visit us at www.winnipegfringe.com. You can also call the Fringe info line at 204-942-6537.

Modern Jazz Today joins UMFM's Broadcast Schedule
on May 25,2016 by michael

Beginning this Friday, May 27th and running two-hours weekly, our Sunday night listeners will have something new to tune into as UMFM is please to announce we will be syndicating Modern Jazz Today from 9-11pm. MJT focuses on the NOW and while it originates out of the U.S. the program frequently features Canadian artists, making it a welcome addition to our programming.

The vision for the program - "To create a program that will inform and inspire listeners by focusing on today’s jazz improvisational makers, standard’s arrangers and original composers" - is one that UMFM can get behind as informing and inspiring listeners are primary goals for all our original programs.

We love JAZZ in all its variations and Modern Jazz Today is just one colour in the palette of jazz programming at UMFM that also includes Swing Radio (Tuesday 2-3pm), Rhythm & Sound (Wednesday 1-2:30pm), Expansive Prairie Skies (Friday 1-3am) Fascinating Rhythm (Sunday 10am-Noon) and 52nd Street Jazz (Sunday 8-9pm) and we hope that if you love jazz too, you'll finish your weekend with Modern Jazz Today.

204FM Comes To UMFM & The West End Cultural Centre!
on April 23,2016 by jared

One Trunk Theatre, together with the West End Cultural Centre and UMFM 101.5 present 204FM, a new radio series performed live weekly with broadcast to follow. A new episode debuts every Tuesday April 26- May 24th at 8:00 p.m. at the West End Cultural Centre’s ACU Hall. Each performance will feature an opening set by a guest musical act, followed by the radio play with live sound foley. After the live performance each episode will be broadcast on UMFM Fridays at 7:00 p.m. Musical set will only be available for live audience.

In the early 1900s unfortunate and irreversible mistakes bind Hermes, the god of travel, in gold. Now a statue, Hermes is passed from one continent to the next bringing bad luck and a feeling of "stuckness" everywhere he goes. World powers unite and decide the only solution is to send him as far away as possible to a place that no one cares about... a place in the middle of nowhere... Winnipeg, Manitoba. For over a century Hermes has perched atop the Legislature and we call him the golden boy, a statue reeking a feeling a apathy through the city and not letting anyone leave, even after they have passed away. Enter our heroes, regular every day Winnipeggers who feel stuck but are sucked into an adventure exploring the city and meeting an infamous cast of characters (from Stephen Juba to the Grey Nuns and from Nellie McClung to Burton Cummings) who give them a new perspective. A hilarious roller coaster ride through time, winters, socials, mysteries and many vacant floors of the Downtown Bay, 204FM is a uniquely Winnipeg buffet, created by top Winnipeg comedians and theatre artists for the citizens of our one great city.
