UMSU Election Coverage / Democracy Now Pre-Empted!
on February 24,2016 by jared

While the primary season to the south is getting all the attention, it's also election season here at the University of Manitoba as members of the Students Union head to the polls March 2nd, 3rd and 4th.


A representative from each of the slates running for the UMSU Executive for 2016 sat down with moderator Stephanie Savoie to answer a host of predetermined questions about their platforms. UMFM presents this unedited forum in its entirety for our student listeners to help in reaching a decision on casting their ballot.

This hour-long recording will air in place of Democracy Now! from noon to 1pm on both Wednesday February 24th and Friday February 26th. On Thursday February 25th, we will be live streaming the UMSU Election debate from the Engineering Atrium here on campus from 11:30 AM until 1PM.

For those of our listeners who aren't voting in the UMSU elections and wish to hear Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez and the rest of the fine crew at Democracy Now! please be advised that we'll be returing to regular broadcasts on Monday February 29th but in the meantime, you can find streamable versions of daily episodes (video and audio) at http://www.democracynow.org/

If you don't see anything from us shortly, and are expecting a tax receipt, please feel free to get in touch ASAP so that the issue can be resolved.


Cheers, and thanks again for your support!

New Year, New Programming!
on January 4,2016 by michael

UMFM is excited to announce that beginning this Friday, January 8th and running every Friday night from 6 - 6:30 PM we'll be airing UNDER THE NEEDLE, a series of live performances originating from KEXP in Seattle. While we pride ourselves on the great locally produced programming our volunteers create each week, we're also eager to provide the Winnipeg community with some quality broadcasts from further afield and Under The Needle fits that bill. Each week a different guest stops by KEXP's studios - solo acts, seven-piece bands and all sorts of other configurations - and performs a handful of live tunes that can only be heard via the original broadcast and now via UMFM.

Our first broadcast will feature Destroyer, whose most recent album Poison Season was the #40 album of 2015 here at UMFM. Coming weeks will feature King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, METZ and more!
