Tueday Free Range - From Griffin & Graham to Gordon
on May 6,2015 by michael
We're pleased to announce that John Gordon, longtime host of Pop Infusion (4-5pm Tuesdays) will be taking over as the host of the Tuesday Free Range spot previously held by Griffin & Graham. John promises that the music featured on Free Range will continue to be a mix of new and new-ish tunes from the realms of pop-rock, with a strong focus on local and national acts, but he'll also be incorporating his love of theatre, sketch comedy and improv by spotlighting some of the great folks making us laugh here at home and those coming through town as well.
May 26th will mark John's last show in his current timeslot as well as the first in his Free Range spot.

on February 5,2015 by jared
Due to circumstances beyond our control, please be advised that UMFM will be off the air tonight starting at 2AM while the University Of Manitoba Physical Plant Department does some electrical work to fix an ongoing issue in the neighboring Helen Glass Building. We have been told that the outtage should be minimal, but have no guarantees to that effect.
Thanks for your ongoing support!
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!
