That's right sports fans! We've got playoff action taking over the airwaves THIS SATURDAY, February 16th as the Manitoba Bisons Mens Hockey team hosts the Regina Cougars this weekend and play-by-play man Chris Zuk and color commentator "The Call-Up" Brant Batters will have all the action live with the pre-game show starting at 6:45 pm and the puck drops at 7 pm. Tune in to 101.5 FM to hear the action or stream it online if you can't make it down to the Max Bell Arena to see the game in person.
The No. 7 ranked Manitoba Bisons men’s hockey team (17-7-4) finished third in the Canada West regular season standings and now host the Regina Cougars (13-12-3), the sixth seed, in one of the two 2012 Canada Quarter Final best-of-three series. The Bisons play the Cougars at the Max Bell Arena from February 15-17. Game time for all 2013 men’s hockey playoff games is at 7 p.m. CT. Manitoba has a sparkling 10-2-2 record so far this season at home. This season, Manitoba went 3-1 against Regina. They started the 2012-13 season with a home sweep (Nov. 23: W 6-0; Nov. 24: W 7-2) and then split on the road (Feb. 8: W 6-3; Feb. 9: L 4-2) to end the regular season.

Staff & Students United In A Rally For Action
On February 13th, six campus unions (CUPE 3909, UMSU, UMFA, CAW, AESES, and CUPE 1482) will hold an information picket at the Administration Building to voice concerns over actions by the administration supporting corporatization, privatization, contracting-out, diminished collegial governance, and increased workload.
This information rally is a chance to show the University of Manitoba that a wide swath of the university community finds the direction administration is taking unacceptable and that we are all frustrated and dissatisfied. We want the administration to know that this campus belongs to the entire university community and to the citizens of Manitoba.
BIG FUN is Back!
on January 9,2013 by jared
Big Fun, Winnipeg's preminent independent music festival is back for it's second year, taking place January 24th through the 27th, 2013. This year's Big Fun features 26 local artists, plus 5 acts from beyond city limits including Canada's top rap ambassador, former Edmonton poet laureate, Cadence Weapon and will take place in 10 different venues throughout Winnipeg's downtown. The festival touches on many genres of music, from rock to hip-hop, folk to electronic and each show has been curated and placed in a specific venue in order to give the audience and artists a unique experience to that of the usual Manitoba music scene.
Festival passes are available now at Into the Music, Music Trader and online at ticketworkshop, and will get you into 12 shows for $40 (only $30 with your Friends With Benefits Card!!), or you can pick and choose and pay at the door.
Winnipeg has two reputations across the country, one for having a great music scene, and the other for having a brutal winter. Big Fun combines these two elements to create a music festival that our prairie town can be proud of! Get primed for Big Fun and check out this year's festival sampler here!
Big Fun Productions is comprised of four Winnipeg musicians and music lovers who are passionate about their city. Inspired by the layout of Pop Montreal and NXNE, Big Fun aims to create the same excitement within the music and art community in Winnipeg by hosting several events throughout the year.

The staff and volunteers at UMFM would like to wish you and yours nothing but the best during the holiday season! We want to thank you for your support during 2012, a real banner year for the station that saw us execute our first wildly successful Pledge-O-Rama, record and post over a hundred live sessions, open our recording studio to more than a dozen bands and of course produce countless hours of quality radio programming. We've been given the gift of radio and we have been more than happy to share it with all of you!
We are currently in holiday programming mode through the end of December, but we'll be back to normal starting January 3rd. Until then, enjoy the time with family and friends, be safe and we'll see you all in 2013. We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to bring to you!
